Sounds like the analysis on the Georgia case about Willis conflict [View all]

is compromised, and Willis and Wade will be disqualified, and essentially the Georgia case against trump is toast.

Both CNN and MSNBC have indicated that Willis and Wade has been less than honest.

I will be very surprised if this Georgia case against trump doesn’t go away, or at the best possible case won’t happen until after the election.

Really disappointed in Willis’ recklessness. A case that should have been a slam dunk is probably going to go down in flames

This would have never been an issue if she never hired Wade.

I think the Georgia case against trump is finished.

It is up to Jack Smith to save Democracy through the legal system

Of course it is up to us to insure trump doesn’t get levy voting Democratic.

Can you explain this to me? I'm not watching, but I know a consensual affair between adults doesn't Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #8
Well... FBaggins Feb 2024 #10
This is what I'm asking. What did they lie about? Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #11
When the relationship started. Reimbursements for trips. oldsoftie Feb 2024 #15
He expensed trips they took? Or he paid for them out of his own pocket? Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #17
He supposedly paid for them on his business credit card and then she paid him back in cash. progressoid Feb 2024 #28
Thank you. From Google, I am gathering that they are saying she hired him, he paid for the stuff Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #45
It also appears they started dating in 2019 or 2020. Calista241 Feb 2024 #88
He admitted that?! Under oath?! Arazi Feb 2024 #90
Well then, there you have it. So disheartening, disappointing. msfiddlestix Feb 2024 #71

There would be records of that Sympthsical Feb 2024 #43
Yes understood. I'm not listening to it atm Arazi Feb 2024 #56

Be very careful with Zelle! Especially depending on what bank you use. oldsoftie Feb 2024 #109
Cash transfers leave a trail though. oldsoftie Feb 2024 #106
She is now testifying that she normally keeps thousands of dollars in cash at home MichMan Feb 2024 #113

Stupid stuff FBaggins Feb 2024 #16
It wouldn't even be an issue if she didn't hire him. Very poor judgement. JohnSJ Feb 2024 #20
No question there FBaggins Feb 2024 #24
Yup. Sad. And makes me angry:( Before i Laura PourMeADrink Feb 2024 #41
Hiring him is not a basis for disqualification Ms. Toad Feb 2024 #51
This is what confuses me.....why does it matter if she and Wade had a relationship. Fla Dem Feb 2024 #83
If she had disclosed it from the start, it wouldnt be an issue; except his pay oldsoftie Feb 2024 #103
It has nothing to do with the affair. It is the affidavits they signed are JohnSJ Feb 2024 #18
I'm still unclear. Did they take state money to pay for non work stuff? Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #22
no, from his own business account bigtree Feb 2024 #46
I felt confident... FeelingBlue Feb 2024 #12
She should have had more sense than to hire Wade in the first place JohnSJ Feb 2024 #21
I certainly caught HELL for saying Willis had created a BIG problem. This is a disaster oldsoftie Feb 2024 #13
If she is removed edhopper Feb 2024 #30
If so, its on her. I believe it would have to stay in Fulton Co oldsoftie Feb 2024 #100
I'm not ready to blame Willis' poor judgement for this... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #14
Maybe, but it appears she exercised piss poor judgement.... Happy Hoosier Feb 2024 #19
Are you kidding me. She should have never hired Wade, and JohnSJ Feb 2024 #25
THIS would never have been a problem, but... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #26
By all appearances Wade wasn't qualified for the job, and the exchange of money to JohnSJ Feb 2024 #29
It was Willis' call on whether Wade is qualified for the strategy she was developing, no one else's... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #31
That is what the facts are presenting themselves as. This case is over JohnSJ Feb 2024 #33
Thee will always be attempts to derail a case Zeitghost Feb 2024 #64
Hopefully, the judge will see the obvious... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #67
This case will never go to trial unless the MOMFUDSKI Feb 2024 #23
That is the bottom line, and Wade has been less than honest JohnSJ Feb 2024 #27
I must have missed it... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #32
Reimbursements for hotels, cruises, and plane flights by cash? A significant JohnSJ Feb 2024 #35
Was he charging his private company or the state for these expenses? Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #37
He wasn't charging anyone for those... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #47
This is where I am so confused. This is exactly what it seems like to me. I don't get this at all. Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #52
You're doing well then, because this whole case is nothin more than.. Think. Again. Feb 2024 #54
With the certainty that she has done something horrendous, I was sure I had missed something. Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #58
I don't even think he got sloppy with his credit cards... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #65
Yes. If I was the expenses manager at his law firm, I'd smack him in the head. But beyond that, that's true. Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #68
I don't see anything that he did that would anger the law firm's accountant... Think. Again. Feb 2024 #70
What??? Something had me thinking it was a company card. But it's his own card??? Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #74
That's how his wife got a copy of the the statement FBaggins Feb 2024 #77
Shaking my damn head. Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #78
Yeah, it sure is confusing! calimary Feb 2024 #108
It's all extremely credible.. Think. Again. Feb 2024 #53
Actually there is a limit on how much a subordinate can give the boss. jimfields33 Feb 2024 #76
Well then it's a good thing she paid him back. Think. Again. Feb 2024 #79
Hopefully she can prove she did. jimfields33 Feb 2024 #80
Wouldn't it be up to the other attorney to prove she didn't? Think. Again. Feb 2024 #84
Good luck reassigning the case Beausoleil Feb 2024 #34
Weisman and others are saying that if Wade and Willis are less then credible JohnSJ Feb 2024 #36
That's why they should step down now Beausoleil Feb 2024 #38
I've been watching the hearing and that is not my impression at all. Jarqui Feb 2024 #40
Really? Plane fares, cruises, hotels all reimbursed in cash. JohnSJ Feb 2024 #42
Honestly, I'm trying to see this. She hired him. He paid for trips on the credit card from his Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #50
That is a very simplistic answer. cilla4progress Feb 2024 #89
It depends if it is personal money or tax payer money. Fani WIllis has just appeared, and has no JohnSJ Feb 2024 #95
Again, cilla4progress Feb 2024 #97
The defense is arguing misappropriation of funds I believe JohnSJ Feb 2024 #98
Is there a shred cilla4progress Feb 2024 #99
No idea, but Willis is testifying now so we will see JohnSJ Feb 2024 #105
no it isn't, and no it won't bigtree Feb 2024 #44
Is Weisman a "trump" cronie? This has nothing to do with trump's lawyers, it is how Wade is JohnSJ Feb 2024 #48

This is what I heard earlier in the week. CousinIT Feb 2024 #57
Actually, if she didn't hire Wade, this would never have been an issue JohnSJ Feb 2024 #63

Perjury Groundhawg Feb 2024 #114
This is not a trial. Perjury?!? SoFlaBro Feb 2024 #125
Yes perjury. Groundhawg Feb 2024 #130
Perjury has to be a lie that is material to a case and made knowingly. Do I need to grab a law dictionary? SoFlaBro Feb 2024 #133
Which was what happened. Groundhawg Feb 2024 #136

It was a big lapse in judgment by Willis involving over $600,000 paid to Wade's law firm. elocs Feb 2024 #81
No. 600K is what Wade was paid for work he did. No one seems to be debating whether Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #93

If they lied under oath about something, then that's an issue. As far as him paying for her Scrivener7 Feb 2024 #92
It could be considered a kick back Sympthsical Feb 2024 #104
In retrospect, its hard not to think about this and sadly agree. Laura PourMeADrink Feb 2024 #94
Seriously, how does an affair between consenting adults change the facts of the case against Trump? dlk Feb 2024 #101
