The judge decides The Trump case requires Nathan Wade’s lawyer to testify once more

According to sources familiar with the matter, a judge in Fulton County has ruled that Terrence Bradley, former law partner and divorce attorney of special prosecutor Nathan Wade, will need to testify in the Georgia election interference case involving former President Donald Trump. The testimony will cover topics that are not protected by attorney-client privilege.

After meeting with Bradley on Monday, Judge Scott McAfee sent an email to the attorneys involved in the case, informing them that certain communications between Wade and Bradley are not protected by attorney-client confidentiality, according to sources familiar with the matter.

In the Trump election case, Michael Roman and a group of co-defendants are requesting the disqualification of Willis. They allege that she obtained financial benefits through a “personal, romantic relationship” with Wade, whom she hired for the case.

Willis and Wade have acknowledged their relationship, stating that it does not pose a conflict of interest that would disqualify them. They also clarify that their relationship has never resulted in any financial gain, directly or indirectly, for District Attorney Willis.

According to the defense, Bradley possesses evidence suggesting that Wade and Willis’ relationship started before Wade was hired. This contradicts the statements made by Willis and Wade in court. During a hearing on February 15, Bradley chose not to respond to the defense’s questions, citing attorney-client privilege.

Returning to the stand, he holds the potential to unveil significant revelations as the defense persists in their endeavor to disqualify Willis from the election case and have the charges dismissed.

Bradley may be called upon to provide testimony as soon as Tuesday.
