Fani Willis won’t return to the witness stand as judge weighs disqualification in Trump case

February 16, 2024

Willis and Wade have both acknowledged they were in a relationship, but say their personal lives have no bearing on the case. I’m not on trial no matter how hard you try to put me on trial,” Willis told defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant. It’s unclear when the judge might rule on whether Willis and her office should be disqualified from the case. Wade and Willis both testified that they didn’t start dating until 2022 and that their relationship ended months ago. That successor could either proceed with the charges against Trump and 14 others or drop the case altogether.
