Fox News Politics: Wade goodbye

Welcome to Fox News’ Politics newsletter with the latest political news from Washington D.C. and updates from the 2024 campaign trail. 

What’s happening?

No Wade

The judge in the Georgia election interference case has allowed District Attorney Fani Willis to continue leading the prosecution against former President Trump, but strongly admonished her behavior. 

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee slammed Willis’ speech to a church about the matter because it used racially charged rhetoric, was “playing the race card” and overall seemed “legally improper.” 

Though McAffee declined to disqualify Willis from the case due to her affair with special counsel Nathan Wade and other improprieties, he ruled that Wade would have to be removed from the case — or Willis would need to step back herself. 

Later Friday afternoon, Willis withdrew himself. In his resignation letter, he said he would step down “in the interest of democracy,” and so that the case could move forward “as quickly as possible.”

Willis praised Wade in a written reply, and said she “will always remember” his courage, patriotism and “dedication to justice.”

Willis staying on the case wasn’t the ruling Trump wanted. But Trump said on social media that Wade’s resignation was “BIG STUFF.”
