Fani Willis’ Whistleblower Delivers EXPLOSIVE Testimony Before Georgia Senate


The much-anticipated testimony of a whistleblower from corrupt DA Fani Willis’ office was delivered during a Georgia Senate hearing on Thursday.

Amanda Timpson used to work for Fani Willis and told the Georgia Senate Special Committee on Investigations that she became aware that the Fulton County office was illegally diverting federal grant money that was supposed to be used on creating a center for at-risk youth on computers, travel, and “swag.”

But when Timpson brought the misuse of federal funds to her boss – Fani Willis’ – attention, she was suddenly FIRED!

Take a look at Timpson’s damning allegations:

Earlier this year, leaked audio from 2021 of Timpson warning Willis about the illegal misuse of federal funds went viral on social media:

The whistleblower’s testimony was examined as part of a probe into allegations of misconduct by Fani Willis.

Willis herself is refusing to testify:

Fox 5 Atlanta has more details on Timpson’s shocking testimony:

The Senate Special Committee on Investigations held its fourth meeting on Thursday to hear testimony as part of its probe into possible misconduct by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

The committee, chaired by Republican state Sen. Bill Cowsert, was established to probe potential conflicts of interest and allegations that Willis’ office misused federal and state grants. The findings of this investigation will inform legislative actions, including the enactment or amendment of laws and adjustments to state appropriations, aimed at restoring public confidence as deemed necessary.

In Thursday’s hearing, the committee examined sworn testimony from Amanda Timpson, a former employee with the district attorney’s office who claims she was demoted and then fired after trying to stop employees from using a federal grant meant for the creation of a Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention for travel, computers and “swag.”

Whistleblower Amanda Timpson says she was abruptly fired when she would not go along with the illegal use of the money. She claims the office misused federal grant money.

“I’m here today to fight for my reputation, to fight for the youth but also to fight for what’s right,” Amanda Timpson said.

“In this meeting, this was the first time on what he (Miachel Cuffey) wanted to spend the grant on. He said he wanted to spend it on computers, travel and swag,” Timpson said about a meeting with her then-supervisor, Michael Cuffey

Timpson claims she worked to get the grant for the department under the direction of dormer DA Paul Howard. When Willis was elected, she says her team wanted the money for equipment, travel and swag. She claims all of it is illegal and directly outlawed in the terms of the grant.

“As I persisted that it is not what we could do that’s when I realized my treatment changed,” Timpson said.

Timpson also says many so-called “at-risk youth” in the program were not at-risk or even a resident of the county or state. She claims the more she pushed back the more retaliation she received, including a demotion.

“She (Willis) said something like, ‘What’s going on?’ And when I went to speak, she cut me off and she said, ‘Effective immediately you’re going to be removed and demoted,” Timpson explained.

Timpson claims she went up to Human Resources and other departments to say what was happening and she was ultimately fired and walked out by seven armed investigators.

The hearing comes days after Willis decisively won her primary election against a Democratic challenger. She will now face Republican challenger Courtney Kramer in the general election in November.

“I have been under constant attack. They have called me everything but a child of God,” Willis said during her victory speech. “They challenge me on my budget, but I say all the time I rather see them in the classroom than the courtroom.”

The Epoch Times added:

Amanda Timpson, former grant project manager at Ms. Willis’s office, told the Georgia Senate Special Committee on Investigations on May 23 that in the course of her work supervising the administration of federal grants, she became aware of “irregularities” and “problems” in the way the grant money was going to be spent.

The $488,594 grant was earmarked for intervention strategies that could dissuade youth from joining gangs in Fulton County, specifically for the establishment of the Fulton County Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention. The grant remains open and the center has not been built.

Ms. Timpson testified that when Ms. Willis took office in 2021, her then-supervisor Michael Cuffee, a former campaign aide to Ms. Willis, told her he planned to use the grant money in a way that was explicitly prohibited by the rules governing grant administration.

“He articulated that he wanted to spend the grant on computers, travel, and swag,” Ms. Timpson said, adding that Mr. Cuffee said he wanted some of the money to be spent on promotional items like pins, coffee mugs, and T-shirts as part of the Fulton County DA’s office “rebranding” after the election of Ms. Willis.

Ms. Timpson said she quickly interjected and clarified to Mr. Cuffee that the grant funds could only be used on expenses that were specific to programming requirements, namely to help at-risk youth.

Investigative committee chairman Sen. Bill Cowsert asked about Mr. Cuffee’s reaction when Ms. Timpson told him the way he wanted to spend the grant funds “was illegal.”

“Initially, he let me know that it was, um—the employees in the DA’s office called Ms. Willis ‘Madame’—so he let me know that it was ‘Madame’s Vision’ and I basically said ‘I understand that but it’s not what the grant says,’” Ms. Timpson testified.

A request for comment on Ms. Timpson’s allegations sent to the Fulton County DA’s office was not returned.

‘Madame’s Vision’

The hearing was part of the special committee’s investigation into Ms. Willis and allegations of impropriety after it was revealed she engaged in a romantic relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade, whom she hired to help prosecute an election interference case against former President Donald Trump.

Previous hearings before the GOP-controlled committee revealed that there was, as Mr. Cowsert said, “very little control” and oversight of Ms. Willis’ $36 million budget.

President Trump, who has pleaded not guilty in the case, has alleged that the charges are politically motivated and has called for Ms. Willis to be removed from the case.

During her testimony on Thursday, Ms. Timpson said that she persisted in her opposition to what she described as planned misuse of the grant funds at weekly meetings. In retaliation for flagging the intended misuse of the grant funds, she said she was shut out of the weekly meetings, intimidated, and subsequently fired for what she suggested was retaliation.

As resistance built to her objections about the planned misuse of grant funds, Ms. Timpson testified that she notified Ms. Willis of the situation by email—but that the email was ignored.

Ms. Timpson then said she had a meeting with Ms. Willis on July 26, 2021, during which she notified Ms. Willis that her objections to the grant appropriation were meant in good faith to protect the integrity of the grant allocation and that of Ms. Willis’s office itself.

The whistleblower added that, when she articulated her objections to the way Mr. Cuffee planned to spend the grant money, she was cut off by Ms. Willis and demoted—effective immediately—as punishment for persisting with her view that the grant funds should not be used in line with Ms. Willis’s vision.
