CNN Legal Analyst Discredits Key Witness in Trump Election Interference Case

CNN’s senior legal analyst, Elie Honig, expressed skepticism on Tuesday about the credibility of a key witness testifying regarding the alleged relationship between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Nathan Wade in the case involving former President Donald Trump’s election interference.

Terrence Bradley, a former law partner of Nathan Wade, was ordered by the judge overseeing the case to testify about the relationship. During the testimony, Bradley claimed that some of his previous statements in text messages about the relationship were mere “speculation.”

Honig criticized Bradley’s testimony, deeming it “preposterous” and “non-credible.” He highlighted Bradley’s frequent use of “I don’t recall” and “I was speculating” responses during questioning, asserting that this undermined Bradley’s credibility as a witness.

The witness had previously claimed in writing that the relationship between Nathan Wade and Fani Willis began before Wade was hired as a special prosecutor. However, during the recent testimony, Bradley stated that he was speculating when he provided specific details about when and how Willis and Wade met.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAffee reportedly took note of instances where Bradley claimed a lack of recall or specific details during questioning.

The case involves allegations that Willis, who hired Wade as a special prosecutor to investigate Trump, was romantically involved with him. Willis and Wade testified during a hearing on February 15 and 16 to gather evidence for determining whether Willis should be disqualified from the case.

Willis secured an indictment against Trump and other defendants in August, accusing them of attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. Wade’s firm received significant compensation from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, leading to questions about the nature of their relationship.

The defendants, including Trump and his co-defendant Michael Roman, face charges under Georgia’s “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” (RICO) Act, Conspiracy To Commit Forgery in the First Degree, Conspiracy To Commit False Statements and Writings, among other charges.
