Close Trump ally Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) filed an ethics complaint against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D).

According to The Hill, the four-page ethics complaint filed with the Georgia State Ethics Commission, alleges that Willis violated the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Act by not disclosing “suspicious relationships and transactions” she made in relation to top prosecutor, Nathan Wade.

The allegations in Greene’s complaint stem from a co-defendant of former President Trump, Mike Roman, filing motions seeking to disqualify Willis from the sprawling racketeering and election interference case. Roman alleged that Willis and Wade traveled to “traditional vacation destinations” together, including the Caribbean and Napa Valley.

Greene claimed that the roughly $700,000 Wade was paid for working on the Trump case made him an “authority of the state,” suggesting Willis should therefore have to disclose any spending between the two.

The issue is the law she cites only requires public officials to disclose payments for “speaking engagements, participation in seminars, discussion panels, or other activities which directly relate to the official duties of the filer.”

Greene’s complaint also accuses Willis of “collud[ing]” with White House counsel — over meetings that stemmed from efforts to gather evidence for the case.

In a statement, Greene called Willis’ failure to disclose the trips “a scandal of epic proportions.”

“Fani Willis can’t be trusted to fulfill her duties impartially. Inappropriate, unethical, and potentially illegal behavior has plagued her investigation from the outset,” she wrote. 

“Willis’ refusal to disclose her relationships and financial transactions demonstrates a blatant disregard for the law and ethical standards,” she added.

Willis, however, has fought efforts to remove her from the case, including recent efforts from Roman’s team to subpoena testimony from her and Wade.

Last month, Rep. Greene filed a complaint requesting that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and Attorney General Chris Carr (R) investigate Willis after Roman alleged that she had an improper relationship with Wade.
