Trump Seeks Details of Atlanta Prosecutor’s Meetings with Biden Aides

In 2022, Nathan Wade had a meeting with White House employees in order to gather information for his investigation of potential Trump meddling in Georgia’s 2020 election.

Attorneys for former President Donald J. Trump are requesting additional details regarding conversations Atlanta prosecutors held with the Biden White House and the House committee that looked into the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

For a while now, Mr. Trump has maintained that his connections to both organisations have tarnished the case of election meddling that Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney Fani T. Willis filed against him. This week, one of Mr. Trump’s co-defendants in the case filed a lawsuit that included additional information regarding the contacts. The investigation includes allegations of racketeering against the former president and fourteen of his cronies.

Since Ms. Willis started her investigation in 2021, it has been known that she attempted to utilise the data acquired by the House Jan. 6 committee. In 2022, as she was gathering information and proof regarding the actions of Trump White House officials and attempting to force their appearance before a special grand jury, her office made contact with the White House Counsel’s Office.

One of the individuals who was going to be called upon to testify was Pat Cipollone, a former lawyer for the White House.

The revelations originated from Nathan Wade’s expenditure reports, the independent attorney Ms. Willis retained to spearhead the Trump investigation. They were mentioned in a public filing this week by defendant Michael Roman, a former member of the Trump campaign.

The court documents said that the two prosecutors had been observed “in a personal relationship capacity” in Atlanta and that others close to them had verified their relationship, but they offered no evidence of their relationship. The Wade divorce lawsuit is being filed, and Mr. Roman’s attorney wants it unsealed.

The only statement made by Ms. Willis’s office thus far on the subject is that it will respond to the claims presented in court.

According to Mr. Wade’s expenditure reports, on May 23, 2022, he went to Athens, Georgia, for a session with the White House Counsel’s Office. The purpose of the meeting’s location in Athens is unclear. It happened while Ms. Willis’s office was getting ready to summon scores of witnesses to testify before a special grand jury she had called to Atlanta, where the jurors would sit for months taking testimony.

According to Mr. Wade’s billing records, a “Interview with DC/White House” happened in the middle of November 2022, while the special grand jury was still conducting its investigation. At the time, Mark Meadows, a former official who had been the White House chief of staff during the 2020 election, was being questioned by Ms. Willis’s office in court. Eventually, Mr. Meadows was one of the people charged in the case.

A key player in the House hearings on January 6, Cassidy Hutchinson, Mr. Meadows’s assistant, was one of the witnesses who gave testimony to the Georgia special grand jury.

Former Obama administration special counsel Norman Eisen stated that the White House Counsel’s Office frequently got involved when the testimony of individuals from

“Tell the prosecutors you’re going to need to get clearance from the White House, or at least to simply inform the White House that this is going to happen and give them an opportunity to object, without asking for their permission as a precondition,” Mr. Eisen advised former White House officials.
