On Thursday, the judge overseeing the Georgia election interference probe against former President Donald Trump and 18 other co-defendants, scheduled a hearing next month to weigh accusations that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) hired her romantic partner as a top prosecutor on the case.

Judge Scott McAfee scheduled the hearing for Feb. 15 and directed Willis to respond to the allegations in writing by Feb. 2.

Michael Roman, a co-defendant and 2020 Trump campaign official, filed a court motion to dismiss the case, accusing Willis of having an affair with the special prosecutor who assisted in securing a grand jury indictment against former President Donald Trump. 

Citing “sources close” to both Willis and Wade, Roman’s lawyer, Ashleigh Merchant, claimed the pair have been involved in an “ongoing, personal and romantic relationship,” and went on vacations together. The filings argued the alleged relationship, which Merchant claims started before the election interference began, makes the indictment “fatally defective” and requests it be dismissed.
