House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has responded strongly to Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, who criticized his panel’s investigation into her prosecution of former President Donald Trump.

As reported by Conservative Brief News on Thursday, September 28, this exchange of words has intensified the already heated debate surrounding this case.

Willis had previously accused Jordan and his committee of attempting to interfere with her prosecution through records requests, but Jordan vehemently disagreed with her stance.

In a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner, he countered her claims, stating, “Your letter contends that the Committee, by conducting oversight into apparently politicized local prosecutions, is ‘obstruct[ing] a Georgia criminal proceeding’ and ‘advanc[ing] outrageous partisan misrepresentations.’ Your position is wrong.”

Furthermore, Jordan asserted that Willis’ response to the committee’s records request, which aimed to assess whether her case against Trump was politically motivated, strongly suggested her active involvement in such a scheme.

Willis argued in her response that her case was a state and local matter, and thus, Congress had no authority to investigate. Jordan, however, pointed out that prosecuting a former president inherently implicates substantial federal interests.

He emphasized the potential consequences of allowing state or local prosecutors to engage in politically motivated prosecutions of federal officers for actions taken while in federal office.

Jordan’s concerns extended to a special grand jury report, which he claimed indicated Willis was considering an even more extensive intrusion into federal interests.

This came after jurors recommended charges against sitting and former U.S. senators, including Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

The House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into Willis’s office and the case against Trump, launched on August 24, has been marked by controversy.

Trump and 18 co-defendants were indicted on racketeering charges related to efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election, a move criticized by House Republicans as an attempt to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, in which Trump was the GOP front-runner.

Jordan’s initial records request coincided with Trump turning himself into Fulton County officials, adding to suspicions about the indictment’s legitimacy.

The committee’s concerns revolve around discovering whether Willis had “coordinated” with the Justice Department, specifically special counsel Jack Smith, who had delivered an indictment against Trump for similar reasons to the Georgia case.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich added fuel to the fire by claiming that federal officials in Washington, D.C., were in contact with Willis regarding the Trump case.

Gingrich initially referred to this information as hearsay but emphasized that the source had a history of accuracy.

According to Gingrich, the alleged conversation involved Washington officials urging Willis to indict Trump on a specific timeline to shift the news cycle away from U.S. attorney-turned-special counsel David Weiss.

Despite Willis’s logistical concerns about the timing, the alleged callers insisted on a quick indictment.
