1 min read

Nathan J. Wade, the prosecutor leading the election subversion case against Donald Trump and his allies in Georgia, has resigned following a ruling from the Fulton County judge overseeing the criminal case. In a letter addressed to District Attorney Fani T. Willis, Wade emphasized the importance of upholding the rule of law and democracy in their pursuit of justice.

Wade stated, “The furtherance of the rule of law and democracy is and has always been the North Star of our combined efforts in the prosecution of those who are alleged to have attempted to overthrow the results of Georgia’s 2020 Presidential Election.”

He expressed dedication to ensuring a fair trial and a just verdict, emphasizing the role of a Fulton County jury in a Fulton County courtroom. Wade’s resignation comes in response to the court’s ruling in State of Georgia v. Donald John Trump.

In his resignation letter, Wade stated, “Although the court found that ‘the Defendants failed to meet their burden of proving that the District Attorney acquired an actual conflict of interest,’ I am offering my resignation in the interest of democracy, in dedication to the American public, and to move this case forward as quickly as possible.”

District Attorney Willis accepted Wade’s resignation in a letter where she commended his professionalism and dignity throughout the duration of the case. She acknowledged the challenges Wade faced, including threats against him and his family, as well as unwarranted attacks on his reputation as a lawyer.
