Judge Orders Nathan Wade’s Attorney Must Take The Stand Again In Trump Case: Sources

Aiexpress – A Fulton County judge has made a ruling stating that Terrence Bradley, a former law partner and divorce attorney of special prosecutor Nathan Wade, will need to testify in the Georgia election interference case involving former President Donald Trump. This testimony will cover areas that are not protected by attorney-client privilege, according to sources familiar with the matter.

After meeting with Bradley on Monday, Judge Scott McAfee informed the attorneys involved in the case via email that certain communications between Wade and Bradley are not protected by attorney-client confidentiality, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Michael Roman and several other co-defendants in Trump’s election case argue that Willis should be disqualified from the case. They claim that she received financial benefits due to a “personal, romantic relationship” with Wade, whom she hired for the case.

Willis and Wade have acknowledged their relationship, but they assert that it does not constitute a conflict of interest that would disqualify them. They also emphasize that their relationship has never resulted in any financial gain for District Attorney Willis, whether directly or indirectly.

According to the defense, it is believed that Bradley possesses evidence indicating that the relationship between Wade and Willis had started prior to Wade’s employment. This contradicts the statements made by Willis and Wade in court. During a hearing held on February 15th, Bradley chose not to answer questions from the defense, citing attorney-client privilege.

Returning to the stand, he holds the potential to unveil crucial revelations. This development comes as the defense relentlessly pursues their goal of disqualifying Willis from the election case and seeking the dismissal of the charges.

Bradley might be called to testify as soon as Tuesday.

In August, Trump and 18 other individuals entered pleas of not guilty to a comprehensive racketeering indictment. The indictment accused them of attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. Following this, four defendants opted for plea deals, agreeing to provide testimony against the remaining defendants.

The district attorney’s investigation has been criticized by the former president for being politically motivated.
