Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) issued a fiery response to House Judiciary committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) request for more information about her investigation into Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the Peach state.
“A charitable explanation of your correspondence is that you are ignorant of the United States and Georgia Constitutions and codes,” Willis wrote in a letter.
“A more troubling explanation is that you are abusing your authority as Chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary to attempt to obstruct and interfere with a Georgia criminal prosecution,” she added. “Indeed, you confessed to this motivation on Mark Levin’s September 10, 2023, show: when discussing one of my office’s active prosecutions, you boasted, ‘We’re trying to get all the answers, but we’re trying to stop this stuff as well.’”
The House Judiciary Committee opened an investigation into Willis’ office in August looking into whether she communicated or coordinated with the Justice Department or if federal dollars were used to complete her investigation.
“We have already written a letter — which I have attached again for your reference — explaining why the legal positions you advance are meritless. Nothing you’ve said in your latest letter changes that fact,” Willis wrote in Wednesday’s letter.
“To the extent you have specific questions about the Department of Justice’s communications, we refer you to the Department of Justice,” she added.
