Following weeks of stalling, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will finally face questioning regarding potential misuse of federal funds in her election interference case against President Trump.
The House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena to Willis on Friday, ordering her to testify about allegations from a whistleblower that she diverted funds from youth and gang prevention programs to cover “frivolous, unrelated expenses.”
Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan made the announcement Thursday via X.

NBC News reported:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has subpoenaed District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County, Georgia, demanding documents from her office following allegations that Willis fired a whistleblower who tried to stop a top campaign aide from misusing federal funds.
The subpoena, obtained by NBC News, is part of a broader probe by Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Republicans into whether Willis used federal funds in conducting her more-than-two-year investigation into former President Donald Trump, who was indicted in Fulton County last year on charges that he attempted to overturn Georgia’s 2020 presidential election results. Trump has pleaded not guilty.
In a letter Friday, Jordan says Willis has failed to comply with two earlier requests for documents related to her office’s use of federal grant money. The subpoena calls on the district attorney’s office to provide documents and communications “referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds” and “referring or relating to any allegations of the misuse of federal funds.”
