WATCH: Ex Trump Prosecutor Nathan Wade Stops CNN Interview When Asked When Relationship Began With Fani Willis

 Former Donald Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade got up and left a live interview with CNN this week when he was asked about when his relationship began with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Wade resigned from his position in the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump back in March after it was revealed that he and Willis were engaged in a relationship.

His resignation came after Judge Scott McAfee ruled that either Wade or Willis had to exit the case for the prosecution to continue. Willis faced possible disqualification from her case against Trump over allegations that she had misused taxpayer dollars and showed favoritism to Wade.

When asked by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins what his relationship is currently like with Willis, Wade responded: “Just as outlined earlier, we are great friends. We speak regularly. The conversation has changed, though. Whereas before, we were — our conversations were about this case, you can — I’m sure you can imagine and appreciate the amount of time that it takes that you have to pour into a case trying — a case of this magnitude, trying to prosecute those defendants. But our conversations have shifted to, ‘How are you? How are you handling the threats that are coming your way? Are you being safe?’ And democracy will — the case will live on kind of thing.”

Collins then asked him to clarify when his “romantic relationship” started with Willis.

“Yes, so we get into — there’s been this effort to say that, OK, these exact dates are at issue and these exact dates are — I’m getting — I’m getting signaled here,” he said.

Wade’s team came over and took the microphone off of him and huddled him in the corner of the room and spoke to him for some time before he came back and finished the interview.


“So, I believe that the public has through — through the testimony and other interviews, the public has a clear snapshot that this is clearly just a distraction,” he later answered. “It is not a relevant issue in this case. And I think that we should be focusing on more of the facts and the indictment of the case.”
