The Brew: Real DAs of Fulton County

Happy Friday!

To kick off this Presidents’ Day weekend, let’s share the latest on a couple of presidents.

“It’s Over” for Fulton County D.A. in Trump Case After Hearing on Her Affair With Special Prosecutor

Who needs Court TV and daytime soaps when you’ve got the Fani Willis hearing on cable news?

Fulton County D.A. Fani “Don’t Be Cute With Me” Willis made a surprise, dramatic appearance full of spit and fire, bluster and belligerence, at a hearing to determine whether she should be disqualified from her prosecution of Donald Trump over her romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade. Several times the judge threatened her over her outbursts, but generally let her rant, vent and emote … though by the end he looked tired of her act. As gripping as it was.

When she asked if she had proof of paying Wade back for their fancy trips: “The proof is what I just told you.”

She spent much of her testimony calling defense lawyers “liars.” Talked about her “loneliness.” Lost track of what continent Belize is on. She even showed her penchant for race talk. “I’m not going to emasculate a black man.”

Willis made her dramatic appearance in pink after her special prosecutor/lover left the stand and her former friend testified Willis was lying about the start of their affair. Testimony that left heartbreak at MSNBC.

“It’s game over for Fani Willis,” said MSNBC.

Willis’ former college friend and assistant Robin Yearti buried Willis by testifying under oath that there was “no doubt” Willis and Wade started their relationship shortly after meeting in 2019. She saw them hugging and kissing. Newsweek calls Yearti’s testimony a “bombshell.” Wade’s law partner Terrance Bradley was reportedly set to also testify to the 2019 date, but did not testify to that in court, claiming he had been warned by the Georgia State Bar not to, unless he got a waiver of attorney-client privilege, and was worried about his law license.

Willis has stated to the court there was “no personal relationship” with Wade before his appointment as special prosecutor in November 2021.

Wade also denies any romantic involvement before the appointment. However, saying Thursday the relationship started in 2022 contradicts what Wade said during his divorce proceedings, namely that their affair started in 2023. He also claims it was just a coincidence he filed the divorce payers one day after signing his contract with Willis.

A major “Oh, c’mon” moment: Willis testified that while he would charge their fancy vacations on his business card, Willis would pay her share back … in cash … thousands of dollars … that he did not deposit. And didn’t bother to ask the D.A. where the loads of cash came from.

Why This Matters

The affair, the lying about the affair, Willis profiting from paying her honey close to a million dollars to investigate Trump, not only likely means Willis will be tossed off the case, but puts the entire election interference RICO case against Trump and associates at risk.

Which gets to another reason this matters. Why would the Georgia State Bar have an issue with Bradley talking about a personal relationship, or at least anything he observed as Wade’s partner outside of what he knew as Wade’s lawyer during his divorce? (Lawyers for Trump’s codefendants claim Bradley would have testified the relationship began two years earlier than Willis and Wade claim.)

We’ll see. What we do know is this same Georgia State Bar tried to disbar attorney Lin Wood in 2021 for his work on the 2020 election. Even got a judge to request he take a mental exam. That’s just one of the cases where lawyers who got anywhere near challenging the 2020 election had their careers and reputations attacked.

The hearing shall continue this morning at 9 a.m.

Trump Trial Date Set for Stormy Daniel Case: March 25

The runt of the litter of lawfare cases against Donald Trump is now set to begin March 25, after the judge refused to drop the charges or delay the trial. This is the case Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg concocted with the help of former Biden DOJ official to charge Trump in connection with payments he made to Stormy Daniels. (The same Stormy Daniels who now owes Trump hundreds of thousands after she sued him with the help of the now-jailed lawyer and CNN BFF Michael Avanatti.)

The case, which legal experts say is a puzzling contortion of local and federal election laws to avoid long past statutes of limitation, was originally placed on the back burner to clear the way for the Jack Smith trials and Fulton County case. But with the J6 case on hold and Fulton County case blowing up, the Soros-funded Alvin Braggs gets to step back into the limelight.

… as the streets of his New York City turn into Escape From New York.

Meanwhile, Trump will hear today his punishment in the civil trial where Judge Arthur Engoron has declared him guilty of defrauding … well, nobody. New York AG Letitia James wants to strip Trump of all his New York business licenses and shake him down for $370 million.

Say What? Biden Was the One Who Brought Up Son Beau With Special Counsel!

During his disastrous press conference last Thursday, an emotional Joe Biden lit into Special Counsel Robert Hur for bringing up his son Beau. “How in the h*** he dare raise that?!’ Frankly, when I was asked the question, I thought to myself, it wasn’t any of their damn business.”

Except … turns out it wasn’t Hur that brought up Beau, it was Joe Biden himself, sources who’ve seen the transcript and Biden insiders told NBC News. Hur was simply asking Biden about his workflow at a house he rented in Virginia to work on his memoir about Beau’s illness and passing, when Biden brought up his son.

The reason Hur was curious about the Virginia rental is because Biden’s on tape with the book’s ghostwriter talking about how they’d just found “classified documents downstairs.”

So beyond the fact that Biden didn’t know the year of Beau’s death “even within several years,” he attacked Hur with a false allegation. AND he knew he had classified documents he wasn’t supposed to have to help him with his book, and did nothing about it, contrary to what the White House has been saying for a year. AND classified documents were just not at the Penn Center, or his Delaware garage, or his lawyer’s office in Boston. They were in a rental.

Robert Hur will testify in a public hearing before the House Judiciary Committee March 12.

Stepping Up by Stepping Down: NCAA Official Resigns Over Males in Women’s Sports

A member of the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions has resigned in protest over the NCAA’s promotion of transgender biological males competing in women’s sports.

William Brock III, a former official of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, knows cheating when he sees it. In his resignation letter Friday to the NCAA, he wrote:

“Although I may not have agreed with the wisdom of every rule in the NCAA rulebook, I believed the intent behind the NCAA’s rules was competitive fairness and protection of equal opportunities for student-athletes. This conviction has changed as I have watched the NCAA double down on regressive policies which discriminate against female student-athletes.”
