“Politically Motivated”: Fani Willis Has Wild Reaction To Jim Jordan’s Threat To Hold Her In Contempt

In an utterly non-self-aware response to Rep. Jim Jordan’s investigation of her, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis argued that his investigation of her was “politically motivated,” the very thing many in the GOP accuse her investigation of Trump of being. Further, she attempted to refute his requests for documents.

As background, Rep. Jordan is investigating DA Willis’ alleged misuse of federal grant funds. When the DA allegedly, according to the congressman, did not fully comply with his requests for information about toward what purpose the funds were used, Rep. Jordan fired off a second letter to the DA describing where her response to his demands had been deficient and in which he threatened to hold her in contempt of Congress.

DA Willis responded, on March 25, in a letter of her own. In the letter, DA Willis first claimed to “categorically reject” Rep. Jordan’s accusations that she did not fully comply with requests for information, then went on to accuse his investigation of being politically motivated and intended to derail her investigation into him rather than provide real oversight, as he claims.

Beginning her letter, DA Willis said that she rejected his claims about how her office has been deficient in responding to requests for information, saying, “I am in receipt of your letter dated March 14, 2024. I categorically reject the assertion that this office is deficient in responding to the Committee’s subpoena dated February 2, 2024.”

Continuing, she went on to explain why she thinks she is complying in a “good faith” way. Doing so, the DA wrote, “As you note in your letter, we have already provided you with substantial information about our programs that are funded via federal grants. Further, as I expressed to you in my letter dated February 23, 2024, this office is in the process of producing relevant documents to you on a rolling basis and is undertaking a good faith effort to provide you with responsive information about our federal grant funding. As part of that ongoing process, we are again today making a document production.”

She then accused Rep. Jordan of setting “unreasonable deadlines” that are “uncustomary.” She wrote, “Your primary complaint appears to be that we did not complete the production of your extensive document demands (including five categories of documents over a four-year period) in less than two months. That demand is unreasonable and uncustomary and would require this government office to divert resources from our primary purpose of prosecuting crime. Let me be clear, while we are abiding by your subpoena in good faith and with due diligence, we will not divert resources that undermine our duty to the people of Fulton County to prosecute felonies committed in this jurisdiction.”

Building on that, DA Willis accused Rep. Jordan of being “politically motivated” in his investigation of her office and what it used federal funds for, writing, “We will not shut down this office’s efforts to prosecute crime – including gang activity, acts of violence and public corruption – to meet unreasonable deadlines in your politically motivated “investigation” of this office.“

The DA then wrote that her office would provide more documents as it is able in the coming weeks, saying, “As noted above, included with this correspondence are additional documents responsive to your subpoena, including documents that are responsive to priority categories identified in your March 14, 2024, letter. We will make another production in the coming weeks.”

Concluding, she vowed to continue with her office’s investigations and work, saying, “However, let me again state this clearly: nothing that you do will derail the efforts of my staff and I to bring the election interference prosecution to trial so that a jury of Fulton County citizens can determine the guilt or innocence of the defendants. My family, my staff and I have been threatened repeatedly by people making violent, often racist, attacks. Neither those threats, nor anything your colleagues and you say or do, will deter us from fulfilling our duty to bring this case to trial.”
