Fani Willis Files Desperate Effort to Counter New Cellphone Data, but It's a Big Dud


On Friday, we reported about new cellphone data that the Trump team presented regarding the relationship between Fulton Country DA Fani Willis and the special prosecutor that she appointed in the Trump election case, Nathan Wade. 

The cellphone data appeared to show Wade making at least 35 visits to the Hapeville neighborhood where Fani Willis was living before the district attorney hired him, including at times in the middle of the night when he also communicated with her. 

On one occasion, on Sept. 11, 2021, Wade’s phone left the Doraville area and arrived in the vicinity of Willis’ Hapeville address at 10:45 p.m. The phone remained there until 3:28 a.m. and could later be seen arriving in East Cobb at 4:05 a.m., shortly before Wade sent a text to Willis, the affidavit said. 

Similarly, Wade’s phone left the East Cobb area the night of Nov. 29, 2021, after receiving an 11:32 p.m. call from Willis, the affidavit said. It arrived in Hapeville at 12:43 a.m. and remained there until 4:55 a.m., the affidavit added.

His data also showed more than 2000 calls between the two, and about 10,000 text messages, before they were supposedly romantically involved. 

Many found that damning, including a former Fulton County assistant district attorney Darryl Cohen. 

On Friday, Willis filed a response. But the response was fascinating for what it didn’t say. It challenged the data on procedural grounds, seeking to get it excluded. She also said the data didn’t “prove” that there was a relationship. 

The records do not prove, in any way, the content of the communications between Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade was ever at any particular location or address; they do not prove that Special Prosecutor Wade and District Attorney Willis were ever in the same place during any of the times listed in Supplemental Exhibit 38

What the filing doesn’t do is deny that Wade was at her home on those two occasions mentioned above, Sept. 11 and Nov. 29. 

Instead, as lawyer Technofog explains, Willis submitted calendar entries for other dates, not the above dates. 

Willis claimed in the filing that the data “did not prove anything relevant” and had “little evidentiary value.” She’s the only one who thinks so. 

When Trump attorney Steve Sadow was questioning Wade during the hearing, he asked him specifically about visiting the Hapewell address and Wade stepped right into it. 

SADOW: So if phone records were to reflect that you were making phone calls from the same location as [Willis’] condo before November 1, 2021 and it was on multiple occasions, the phone records would be wrong? 

WADE: If the phone records reflected that, yessir.

Whoops, that might be a bit of a problem now for Wade. 

So, nothing in the filing truly rebuts what the cellphone data reveals, they’re just hoping the judge will rule the information out.

We’ll have to see what the judge says, but it’s going to be hard for the judge to walk around all the evidence.
