Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon believes a full investigation should be launched concerning District Attorney Fani Willis hiring her boyfriend and approving payouts of hundreds of thousands of dollars to him.
He declared on his podcast Tuesday that he thinks the relationship is illegal and should be prosecuted “like yesterday.”
Attorneys for Michael Roman, who is a former Trump campaign aide, filed a motion that alleged that Willis hired Nathan Wade, who is allegedly her boyfriend, to help prosecute former President Trump on a 13-count indictment Willis secured against Trump in August, including state RICO charges, over his efforts to contest Georgia’s elections results.

Bannon believes that Willis should go to jail for what he views as criminal actions connected to her love life. A number of legal experts seem to agree with him, contending at the very least, she should be disbarred over them if true.
He discussed the allegations against Willis with pro-Trump attorney Mike Davis involving her “romantic relationship” with Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade.
Wade purportedly paid for lavish vacations the couple took together with fees allotted to him during the prosecution of Trump. Some experts are calling for a delay in the trial while the allegations are investigated. Others want the case against Trump dismissed entirely.
Davis also brought up that Wade had allegedly engaged in improper discussions with White House counsel concerning the prosecution of Trump in Georgia for his attempts to counter voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“This Nathan Wade, Fani Willis’ alleged boyfriend who had these meetings with the White House, including a meeting with the White House counsel before the indictment of President Trump,” Davis began. “There is clear, obvious coordination between the Biden White House and these prosecutors, these three different prosecutors, on these four different indictments against President Trump.”

“And I would say to Judiciary Committee [Chair] Jim Jordan, it’s time to have hearings immediately,” Davis asserted.
“Like immediately, like this afternoon,” Bannon wholeheartedly agreed.
He is all on board for the pending lawsuit against Willis which alleges improper and corrupt legal behavior as well as targeting Trump for political reasons.
“Make the hunters become the hunted,” Bannon stated. “That’s what you’re seeing in Fani Willis right now. Fani Willis is going to end up in jail. If this thing is true, if these allegations of Mike Roman’s complaint are true, she’s going to end up in jail because these are just outrageous crimes.”
Wade reportedly received over $600,000 in payments approved by Willis, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Wade is a defense attorney and a one-time municipal court judge. His suburban Atlanta firm, Wade & Campbell, focuses on personal injury cases, contract litigation, family and domestic law, and criminal defense. Wade seems an odd choice to assist in prosecuting Trump until you consider his alleged romantic entanglement with Willis.
Trump blasted Willis and her seeming conflict of interest as well as her inappropriate and possibly criminal actions.
“You had a very big event yesterday as you saw in Georgia where the district attorney is totally compromised. The case has to be dropped,” Trump told reporters In Washington, DC on Tuesday. “They went after 18 or 20 people. … She was out of her mind. Now it turns out that case is totally compromised.
“It’s illegal. What she did is illegal. So we’ll let the state handle that, but what a sad situation it is,” the former president added.
