Fulton County Special Prosecutor Nathan Wade met with Biden administration officials on two separate occasions before any charges were filed in Georgia against former President Donald Trump.
Wade, who is currently under fire for his alleged romantic relationship with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, retained invoices billing the county 16 hours for meetings with the White House or the White House Counsel - eight hours each on two separate dates, the second of which took place just two days after Trump announced his 2024 bid for the Republican presidential nomination.
According to a report published Tuesday by Fox News Digital, Wade billed the county $2,000 - $250 per hour for eight hours - for "Travel to Athens; Conf with White House Counsel"
on May 23, 2022. Six months later, on November 18, 2022, Wade billed the county another $2,000 - again, $250 per hour for eight hours - for "Interview with DC/White House."
The second meeting came just two days after Trump's November 16th campaign launch.
No details have been revealed regarding what those meetings were about or what was said, but at Fulton County, GA, District Attorney Willis' request, a grand jury returned indictments against the former president and a number of his allies on August 14, 2023.
Willis and Wade are currently the subject of a motion filed on behalf of Trump co-defendant and former campaign official Michael Roman, in which it is alleged that Willis and Wade have an "ongoing, personal relationship."
According to The New York Times, it was also alleged that Willis chose Wade - who was not a well-known attorney at the time - because of their personal connection.
Since he was tapped for the job in November of 2021, Wade has brought in more than $650,000 - and the filing also alleged that Willis was benefitting financially from their relationship, stating that money paid by the county to Wade had been used to pay for both Willis and Wade to take vacations together in Napa Valley and the Caribbean.
