It has been noted that the letter war between Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) had a development on Wednesday. The prosecutor fired off a massive shot, telling the congressman to mind his own business via Media Ite.
Willis is prosecuting Trump and his co-defendants over their attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in Georgia, which he lost. Jordan, a staunch Trump ally and chair of the House Judiciary Committee, has demanded Willis answer questions about her case.
In refusal to do so, Jordan said in a Sept. 27 letter, “reinforces the Committee’s concern that your prosecutorial conduct is geared more toward advancing a political cause and your own notoriety than toward promoting the fair and just administration of the law.”
Jordan also claimed his committee “has the constitutional authority to conduct oversight” of her probe.
Willis wrote back on Wednesday, suggesting Jordan is “ignorant” and even cited a recent Fox News appearance of his in which he said he is “trying to stop this stuff”:
“A charitable explanation of your correspondence is that you are ignorant of the United States and Georgia Constitutions and codes. A more troubling explanation is that you are abusing your authority as Chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary to attempt to obstruct and interfere with a Georgia criminal prosecution. See O.C.G.A. § 16-10-24. Indeed, you confessed to this motivation on Mark Levin’s September 10, 2023, show: when discussing one of my office’s active prosecutions. you boasted, “We’re trying to get all the answers, but we’re trying to stop this stuff as well” (emphasis added). While you may enjoy immunity under the United States Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause, that does not make your behavior any less offensive to the rule of law.
As the person chosen by the citizens of Fulton County to be their District Attorney, I serve them, and my team and I are exceptionally busy. We have already written a letter—which I have attached again for your reference–explaining why the legal positions you advance are meritless. Nothing you’ve said in your latest letter changes that fact. As I have explained, your requests implicate significant. well recognized confidentiality interests related to an ongoing criminal matter, as well as serious constitutional concerns regarding federalism and separation of powers.”
