On Monday, a judge in Cobb County, Georgia approved a request to unseal the divorce records of Nathan Wade, the lead prosecutor in Fani Willis’ case against President Trump.
Judge Henry R. Thompson also temporarily halted Fani Willis’ deposition. Willis had attempted to quash the subpoena, and the deposition, originally scheduled for Tuesday.
During the proceedings, Joycelyn Wade’s lawyer informed the judge that her client seeks Fani Willis’ deposition not in her capacity as Fulton County DA but as “the alleged paramour of my client’s husband.”
“I have questions and she needs to answer them,” Joycelyn Wade’s lawyer told the judge.

As previously reported, Fani Willis had an “improper” romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, a top Trump prosecutor hired by her to go after President Trump.
Fani Willis “financially benefited” from her romantic relationship with Wade.
Last week, it was reported that Fani Willis was subpoenaed to provide testimony in the divorce proceedings of Nathan Wade, her alleged lover and the special prosecutor she appointed to go after President Trump and his associates.
Per a court filing obtained by the Wall Street Journal, Willis was served a subpoena at her Atlanta office, requiring her testimony in the divorce proceedings of Nathan Wade and his wife, Joycelyn Wade.
Upon receipt, an attorney representing Fani Willis promptly filed a motion to quash the subpoena, alleging that Joycelyn Wade was “interfering” with the RICO case against Trump.
Recently discovered bank statements reveal that Nathan Wade spent money on Fani Willis by buying her flowers, and paying for hotels, plane tickets, a cruise, and Ubers.
The bank statements prove Nathan Wade bought Fani Willis flights to Miami and San Francisco.
