    'DA Fani Willis testified she paid cash during trips with top prosecutor. One winery host remembers her paying in paper bills'
    Source: CNN

    By Zachary Cohen, CNN
    Updated 9:30 AM EST, Tue February 20, 2024

    'After spending more than two hours tasting wine at a Napa Valley estate with her top prosecutor on the Georgia election subversion case, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis reached into her purse and pulled out about $400 in cash. Willis used the money to pay for two bottles of wine – each valued at roughly $150 – and the $50 tasting, according to Stan Brody, who said he hosted Willis and a guest he later learned was Nathan Wade, at Acumen Wines in early 2023.

    Brody, who was the estate ambassador for Acumen Wines that day, told CNN he was surprised when Willis paid using hundreds of dollars in cash – a memorable transaction, he said, as such cash sales are rare in Napa Valley. The self-described “news junkie” said his memory was jogged as he watched Willis and Wade testify last week about their romantic relationship and bat down allegations of self-dealing while under oath.

    Willis testified last week that her use of cash explains why there is no paper trail documenting reciprocal payments she made during her trips with Wade. Brody’s account corroborates at least part of that testimony and lends credibility to Willis’ argument that her cash expenditures show she did not benefit financially from her relationship with Wade and thus she should not be disqualified from the case. Willis’ father, John Floyd, testified at length about his longtime recommendation that his daughter keep cash around.

    “I ran(g) up the thing and I showed her. I was expecting a credit card quite frankly,” Brody recalled to CNN in an interview Monday. “And she says I’ll pay cash. And so that was that. So then I just put the cash in, made change for her and she was very generous to me.”

    Major conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict. She appointed her woefully unqualified boyfriend as a prosecutor, and paid him with tax dollars, which he then used to pay for vacations and other personal items. She should be removed from the case.

    It has already been decided he was/is qualified.

    Yes, he was paid for work he performed as per terms of employment.

    The sworn evidence is that they each paid roughly equally for vacations other than when she gave him a 50th Birthday present which she paid for from her funds.

    What presents? I have listened to/watched the evidence and it looks like the only present (other than the birthday present) was $400.00 worth of wine she paid for with cash.
    There has been no evidence whatsoever of any presents he paid for, and which he gave to her.

    According to CNN wannabe lawyers maybe, but not the vast majority of real lawyers on nearly every other channel that said he was woefully under-qualified, having been primarily a divorce attorney, and having no real experience prosecuting a major case like this. Justify her behavior all you want. But, she and her boyfriend got caught and then tried to lie and spin their way out.

    His only "qualification" is that he's currently licensed to practice law. While that checks the box legally, it doesn't check the box practically. Additionally, based on what we have learned, he should have his license revoked for the following reasons:
    • He was held in willful contempt of court during his divorce for hiding money and records to take advantage of his wife.
    • He admitted, while under oath, to numerous instances of perjury when asked about the discrepancies he told the judge in his divorce case and his affidavit/testimony in the RICO hearings.
    He should also be investigated for tax fraud. He claims he puts all of his expenses on his business credit card and then allows his attorney to fish through the charges and decide what is business and what is personal expense. That is an unorthodox means to settle business expenses and is commonly done for deniability of tax fraud purposes.

    This is a high-profile case, and these are extremely public instances of admitted perjury. He should be placed under investigation immediately by the Bar, and there is ample evidence to temporarily suspend his license until the investigation is complete and adjudicated. I doubt that will happen since Bar associations tend to be very liberal, but that would be the appropriate course of action.

    Sure you do prove he had experience prosecuting felony RICO cases. What was his biggest?

    The Trial Judge ruled that if he has a pulse and a Bar Card he is qualified. End of story, even though what you say is factually incorrect.

    Where are you responses to these points?

    Then when there are charges against him (not mere allegations) have your evil way with him. In the meantime, you are blowing smoke.

    I think it was evidence of lack of qualifications. But, that ship has sailed because the Judge has ruled he is qualified.

    I have no idea, but it is moot now, given the Judge's ruling on the matter.

    Georgia State law says something much different. It says that an attorney must have experience with two felony cases, to be qualified to prosecute a RICO case.

    It's not blowing smoke to state two obvious facts:
    1. He was held in willful contempt of court for withholding financial information from his wife during their divorce.
    2. He swore to two opposite facts during two trials.

    That ignores Yeartie's testimony completely. It's just a matter of blatantly providing opposite testimony depending on what best serves him. That said, I find your ironically cheeky quip about him being prosecuted by the woman he's sleeping with, and who has her political capital tied up in his prosecution of Trump, to be hilarious.

    The law says two cases to defend a felony case. You typically have to sit second chair on two cases before you can lead a defense of a felony charge. Wade likely isn't qualified to defend on the defendants, but there's no requirement, that I'm aware of, to prosecute a felony case.

    Okay, I'll play, even though it is unnecessary.

    Yep, he initially failed to produce some documents his ex-wife wanted. The usual punishment in such a circumstance...a contempt finding. Does not/did not take him out as a Prosecutor against Ramon/Humpty*** et al.

    Can I see those two Affidavits so I can come to my own conclusions taking the oral evidence/explanations he gave into account, please? (I have tried to find ANY Affidavit filed by Wade in the Willis dismissal motion, and came up with nothing.)

    As for Yeartie, I think the Judge will come to the same conclusions I came to. She was being lead (asked leading questions to which all she had to reply was either /yes/no,) thus absolutely zero details, zero details, and all there was at best was one reply to which she tersely said 'hugging, kissing,' and her evidence will be dismissed as having little to no value.

    You have lost me on this one. What post of mine are you referring to?

    The inability to find public court records is becoming notorious. I used a basic Google search via a VPN out of Sydney, without browsing history or cookies, and found the document in about 15 seconds. It leads me to believe this is a wild goose chase designed to get me to continue wasting my time. Why not use so-called lawyer skills and find a court record for one of the most prominent ongoing legal cases in the world. There are a million news articles about it that link the court filings.

    So, why did you not post the link. I found Fani's Response Pleading, I found no affidavit by Wade. Further, you mentioned two Affidavits, but then, your search merely found 'the document.'

    I am not bull****ting. If I could find those two Affidavits, I would not be asking you to provide me with a link. Perhaps your google skills outdo mine, given I have been retired now for about 20 years!

    Sure they do and, just like grand juries in the USA, they do exactly what the prosecutor tells them to do. That whole "if told to, they would indict a ham sandwich, thingie.

    It's moot, since we've found out that McAfee donated to Fatty Willis' campaign.

    Not to mention, he wants to keep his job as Fulton County superior court judge.

    It's obvious how this is going to turn out. It was rigged from the git go.
