Left, Fani Willis. Right, Nathan Wade. Atlanta News First Screengrab

Fani Willis, the Fulton County Georgia DA, who charged Donald Trump and a cast of 18 supporters with RICO violations for contesting the rigged 2020 presidential election, was exposed this week in a massive scandal which threatens to put her in jail rather than the ex-president. It turns out that Willis hired her married lover, Nathan Wade, as the special prosecutor on the Trump case. Wade has never tried a criminal case and filed for divorce one day after Willis hired him. Willis then arranged to pay him some $700,000 in legal and other fees while embarking on luxury vacations with him on the public dime. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed a criminal referral with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr concerning this entire scandal. Willis’ conduct violates multiple Georgia laws.

Of note, billing statements submitted by Wade document that he met with the White House Counsel’s office back in 2021 about Willis’ developing case against Trump. In addition, Willis had Adam Schiff and the Democratic Party’s bogus January 6th investigators on speed dial assisting her case. 

This is not the first indication that the lawfare campaign against Trump is being run right out of the White House and is not some “independent” non-partisan exercise in good civics. It turns out that New York Attorney General Leticia James visited the White House three times while her civil and criminal cases against the Trump Organization and Trump were planned or pending. On Thursday, final arguments in that case, involving alleged victims (sophisticated bankers) who sing the praises of the defendants and state they were in no way defrauded, monetary profits rather than losses, and a novel application of a New York business law dating from 1956 took place before the weirdo hippy Judge Arthur Engoron. James was present in the courtroom.

Engoron, who has ruled against Trump at every turn, achieved the weirdo appellation when he posted recent nude photos of his attempt at washboard abs in a high school alumni publication he edits.

Trump had asked for a postponement of final arguments to mourn the passing of his mother-in-law, but Engoron refused to grant it. Trump had also asked to participate himself in closing arguments. Engoron initially granted the request and then tried to prevent Trump from criticizing James or court personnel including himself. Trump took the mike anyway and blasted James and the Court for what will be an obvious rigged decision barring Trump or his family from doing business in New York State, requiring them to give up their New York properties, and fining them $370 million for what every sane observer has noted were common New York real estate business practices not involving any victims, any losses, or any fraud.

On Tuesday, Trump also attended the oral arguments at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia concerning his claim that presidential immunity under the Constitution bars Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution of him for his challenges to the November 2020 election and certification of the electoral vote. The appeals panel featured two Biden appointed Circuit judges, Florence Pan and Michele Childs, and Karen Henderson, appointed by George H.W. Bush.

Rather than a dignified hearing concerning this extremely serious Constitutional issue, Judge Pan set out to make herself a media star and the hero of her close Democratic Party circle. She cut off Trump’s lawyer two minutes into his argument. She posed the absurd question: What if a president ordered Seal Team 6 to assassinate a political rival? Would he first have to be impeached by Congress before he could be prosecuted? When the lawyer, John Sauer, told her he was sure impeachment would promptly occur in such an instance and began to refer to the Constitution’s commands about the separation of powers, Pan cut him off again, demanding a Yes or No answer. Sauer provided “a qualified yes,” trying yet again to return to what the Constitution says.

The crazed press had a field day mischaracterizing Sauer’s response and asserting that Trump was claiming absolute immunity to kill a political rival (something Biden is proving himself entirely capable of doing). Matt Taibbi provides a summary of the “lunatic” media coverage here. Julie Kelly has provided a detailed summary of Pan’s deep Democratic Party connections and her prior biased rulings against Trump and J6ers which you can read here. Jesse Waters, noting the now revealed Willis and James visits to the Biden White House, states that the entire Trump lawfare charade emanates from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. If you need more proof, the idiot President himself has provided it.

On November 9, 2022, Joe Biden held a press conference prior to departing for the G7 summit. Here is what he said about Donald Trump’s yet to be announced 2024 presidential run.

“Q    So the entire genesis of that G7 conversation was tied to your predecessor, who is about to launch another campaign. So how do you reassure them, if that is the reason for their questioning, that the former President will not return or that his political movement, which is still very strong, will not —

THE PRESIDENT:  Oh, yeah? (Laughs.)  

Q    — once again take power in the United States?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, we just have to demonstrate that he will not take power by — if we — if he does run. I’m making sure he, under legitimate efforts of our Constitution, does not become the next President again.”

You can watch the exchange here. The body language is important.  

Note the consciousness of guilt in the second sentence: “I’m making sure (present tense) under legitimate efforts of our Constitution (whoops almost slipped, legal cleanup interjection), does not become the next President again.”

In retrospect, Biden was clearly referring to the lawfare campaign coordinated directly from the White House, already then underway against Trump. He was not referring to a genuine electoral effort to win the population’s votes.

At the time, Attorney General Merrick Garland had already ordered the historically unprecedented guns drawn FBI raid on President’s Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home of August 8, 2022. The raid followed Biden granting the DOJ access to Trump’s presidential records at the National Archives and rejecting Trump’s claim of executive privilege concerning the documents. Garland had already secretly summoned Jack Smith from the Netherlands to become Special Counsel devoted to indicting and convicting Donald Trump and would formalize his appointment on November 18, 2022.

Biden had been on a campaign about prosecuting Trump since the day he took office. By April of 2022 he was so frustrated with the slow movement at the DOJ that he leaked his desires to the New York Times so that Garland would get the message.  Biden had also been a key participant as Vice-President in all the illegal operations against the Trump Campaign and the Trump transition. It was Biden who came up with the scheme to use the moribund Logan Act to facilitate the firing of General Michael Flynn as security advisor.

NY Attorney General Leticia James visited the White House three times, in April of 2022 and in July and August of 2023. On September 21, 2022, James filed the lawsuit in which the closing arguments before Judge Engoron took place this week.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, was elected in 2021 after Cy Vance, Jr. retired  Bragg’s campaign was supported by the Color of Change organizations heavily funded by Soros, the Pritzker’s, and other major Democratic Party donors.  Color of Change insisted that Bragg prosecute Trump. Bragg formerly worked for Leticia James on the Trump investigations which James had promised as the central premise of her campaign for Attorney General. Based on that promise, James also got significant funding from Democratic Party donors including the George Soros family and Reid Hoffman. She commenced her investigations right after taking office in 2018. It was only in 2020 however, with Biden’s election, that these investigations really took off.

In July of 2021, the first criminal charges were brought against the Trump Organization and former CFO Allen Weisselberg for alleged illegal tax-free perks provided by the Trump Organization to Weisselberg.  By hitting Weisselberg with multiple bogus felony accounts, prosecutors were obviously seeking to get him to lie about Trump. He refused and ended up serving three months at Riker’s Island.

In January of 2021, Vance and James had hired private lawyers from the Democratic law firm Paul Weiss to investigate Trump and charge him. Mark Pomerantz, the Paul Weiss partner, did not take any pay and has since said that he would pay to be able to prosecute Donald Trump. In his subsequent book, People vs. Donald Trump, an Inside Account, Pomerantz documents his complete allegiance to the dictum of Josef Stalin’s henchman Lavrentiy Beria: “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” He pored over every aspect of Donald Trump’s life and businesses seeking to fit novel legal theories to distorted facts in order to jail him. Pomerantz’s jihad was so overt that career prosecutors in Vance’s office rebelled, constantly challenging his theories and purported facts despite Cy Vance’s apparent loyalty to him.

Outsiders, including stars from Robert Mueller’s prosecution team Greg Andres and Michael Dreeben; Scott Muller, a former federal prosecutor and general counsel at the CIA; Rick Girgenti, the only person in the outside “team” who had worked in the DA’s office before; and Harris Fischman, a former prosecutor in the Southern District of New York formed a brain trust advising Manhattan DA Vance and Attorney General James on investigations and  cases against Trump and the Trump organization..  When Alvin Bragg took over as Manhattan DA and filed the Stormy Daniels hush money criminal indictment against Trump on April 4, 2023, Bragg himself had hired a key Democratic Party operative from Merrick Garland’s DOJ to run that case. That was former Associate Attorney General Matthew Coangelo.
