Fani Willis has until Feb. 2 to respond to Trump case affair charges.

A Georgia judge on Thursday gave Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis until Feb. 2 to formally respond to explosive allegations that she has been in an improper romantic relationship with the private lawyer she hired as a special prosecutor overseeing the election fraud case against former President Donald Trump and 14 alleged co-conspirators.

Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee also scheduled a Feb. 15 hearing – likely to be televised – to hear arguments on the issue from Willis and a lawyer for Michael Roman, the Trump-co-defendant and 2020 campaign official who made the allegations last week.

So far, Willis has declined to specifically address the accusations that she was having an affair with private attorney Nathan Wade, and that she hired and paid him more than $650,000 − despite what a defense lawyer said were his lack of qualifications to oversee the high-profile case.
