Judge Rules No Attorney-Client Privilege for Witness In Fani Willis Scandal – State of the Union

0 8

Judge McAfee has ruled that Nathan Wade’s attorney must testify at the Fani Willis hearings without attorney-client privilege protection.

The case involves allegations that Fani Willis and Nathan Wade financially benefited from a romantic relationship during the prosecution of Donald Trump.

Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former lawyer, may have evidence suggesting the relationship started earlier than claimed.

“A witness in the ongoing Fulton County district attorney disqualification controversy met behind closed doors with the judge overseeing the case Monday,” attorneys stated.

“The witness, Terrence Bradley, is a former law partner and one-time divorce attorney for special prosecutor Nathan Wade,” the report added.

“Judge rules no attorney-client privilege for #FaniWillis ‘special prosecutor’ Nathan Wade’s former lawyer,” legal analyst Phil Holloway wrote.

“This means he will have to testify about potentially incriminating texts and other information that could prove Willis affair started earlier than she said,” he added.

“Mr. Bradley previously testified that the reason he left the firm was totally and completely covered by privilege,” Judge McAfee said. “When asked by the state, he went into a factual scenario that, to my mind, I don’t see how it relates to privilege at all. And so now I’m left wondering if Mr. Bradley has been properly interpreting privilege this entire time.”

“Privilege is sacrosanct. It is sacred,” former Dekalb County District Attorney Robert James said. “If you can’t have privileged or secret communications or protected communications with your client, then why would they disclose everything? And if they don’t disclose everything, you can’t give them good legal advice.”

The development could potentially impact the Trump RICO case in Georgia.
