BREAKING: Nathan Wade Resigns After Judge’s Ruling

Well, well, well. Looks like Nathan Wade has had his 15 minutes of fame.

Time for him to exit the stage in this political theater that has everyone shaking their heads.

And get this, it came just hours after some judge decided one of them had to go for the case to keep on truckin’.

Does that make sense to anyone?

As Jonathan Turley, attorney and legal analyst, said, “It’s like finding two people in a bank vault and taking one off to jail.”

President Donald Trump weighed in on this:

USA Today reports:

Nathan Wade, the Georgia special prosecutor hired by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to lead the election fraud case against Donald Trump, has resigned just hours after a judge ruled that either he or Willis had to step down in order for the case to proceed.

Willis accepted Wade’s resignation in a letter released Friday afternoon and thanked the private lawyer, with whom she’d had a romantic relationship that threw the case into turmoil.

“I will always remember − and will remind everyone − that you were brave enough to step forward and take on the investigation and prosecution of the allegations that the defendants in this case engaged in a conspiracy to overturn Georgia’s 2020 Presidential Election,” Willis wrote.

The extraordinary chapter in an already unprecedented case − a former president charged with illegally trying to overturn his election loss − started in January when a Trump co-defendant, Michael Roman, alleged in court documents that Willis and Wade were romantic partners who had enriched themselves through the sprawling election racketeering case.

Judge Scott McAfee held three days of explosive hearings in February that featured a surprise appearance on the stand by Willis herself.

He ruled on Friday that “an odor of mendacity” clung to Willis’ testimony, and said that the district attorney could either remove Wade or see her office disqualified from the case.

In his resignation letter, obtained by USA TODAY, Wade noted that McAfee had ruled the defendants had “failed to meet their burden” of proving an actual conflict of interest in the case. But, he said, “I am offering my resignation in the interest of democracy, in dedication to the American public, and to move this case forward as quickly as possible.”

The people are waking up to how bad this case really is.

And some people are upset, saying Willis is getting away with what she did. She’s not.

The wheels of justice may turn slowly but they crush thoroughly.
