(FeaturedNews.com) – Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) in a recent letter to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the chairman of the House Judiciary rebuffed his recent information request regarding her prosecution of former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants in connection to their attempts to stop the electoral victory of President Biden.
In response to the letter from Jordan, she added that the charitable explanation she could come up with for his requests was that he was ignorant about the Constitutions and codes of both the United States and Georgia. Jordan in his request sent in late September had asserted that she needed to answer questions regarding the investigation. She added that there is a “more troubling explanation” for his request as well as that he could be trying to abuse his power as the Judiciary Committee chairman by trying to obstruct the criminal prosecution in Georgia.
Jordan had at first written in August to Willis only hours before Trump was set to surrender himself to a county jail. In his initial request, he had asked her to hand over all communications and documents that were connected to this case.
Last month, he also wrote that Congress and the Judiciary Committee had “strong legislative interest” in making sure that local prosecutors did not abuse their authority in order to target federal officials. He added that based on her hostile response it was only reasonable for them to assume that she was engaging in such misuse.
On Wednesday, Willis had argued that Jordan had already exhibited that he was going to attempt to interfere with the case.
