Fani Willis denounces ‘illegitimate’ probes by ‘clown’ Jim Jordan as ‘disgusting

Fulton County DA Fani Willis criticized Rep. Jim Jordan for attacking her instead of serving constituents.‍ In an interview on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, she discussed backlash from probing Trump. Jordan’s investigation threatened her office, leading⁣ Willis to challenge the legitimacy of his actions. She invited scrutiny into her ‌office’s use of federal funds and highlighted crime issues⁤ in Jordan’s district.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis slammed Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for his investigation into her office, accusing him of prioritizing attacks on her instead of delivering for his constituents.

In an interview on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Willis shared the attacks she has received for her investigation into former President Donald Trump and his allies. Earlier this year, Jordan, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, opened a federal investigation into Willis and threatened to hold her in contempt of Congress if she did not comply with a federal investigation into the use of federal funds.

“Jim Jordan has time after time after time attacked my office with no legitimate purpose. Anyone who knows Jim Jordan’s history knows that he only has the purpose of trying to interfere in a criminal investigation,” Willis claimed.

“Follow this clown’s lead”

In an exclusive interview with Rachel Maddow, Fani Willis says Georgia Republicans are following Rep. Jim Jordan’s lead in “trying to interfere in a criminal investigation.”

D.A. Willis calls it “disgusting” but says “it shall fail.”

Part of the probe includes investigating a report that Willis’s office “unlawfully ‘planned to use part of a $488,000 federal grant — earmarked for the creation of a Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention’ — to cover frivolous, unrelated expenses,” according to a subpoena. Willis has said she “invite[s] him” to investigate the grants and that her office has complied with the subpoenas.

She also dissed Jordan’s district, which encompasses a rural central part of Ohio and some parts outside of Columbus, highlighting its crime issues. Columbus has one of the highest crime rates among cities in the U.S.

“He continues his attacks to try to interfere in a criminal investigation. All while his jurisdiction has one of the worst crime rates, has poverty issues, and not one time has he used his position to try to investigate people who are attacking me and others who are attacking others legitimately doing their job, making him illegitimate in his position. And it’s disgusting,” Willis said.

She said those within Georgia are following Jordan’s lead by trying to “attack” her.

“Now, at the state level, they’ve decided to follow this clown’s lead. And they want to now try to interfere in an investigation and it’s not legitimate either and so it shall fail and it’s not going to go anywhere,” Willis said. “But they are trying to attack me at every level.”

The Washington Examiner reached out to Jordan’s office for comment.

Willis, who is facing a Democratic primary challenger Tuesday, reiterated her role as district attorney as someone who “looks at the facts.”

“Having prosecutors that are free from interference and are allowed to look at cases, look at the facts, and if people broke the law to bring charges, has to go on for us to live in a free society” Willis said.


Still, she said as a result of all the investigations and “attacks,” she comes out stronger.

“The sad part, though, for all of them is it doesn’t matter how many times they attack me, I am not going to be broken,” Willis said. “And I am going to still be standing here doing my job, lawfully.”
