US Marshals To Deliver Subpoena To Trump DA

The U.S. Marshals recently hand-delivered a subpoena to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, responsible for indicting former President Donald Trump for trying to “overturn” the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. The subpoena comes after the district attorney failed to answer a subpoena by the House Judiciary Committee.

On Feb. 2, 2024, the committee sent Willis a subpoena for documents relating to her alleged misuse of federal funds for her indictment of Trump. Since the district attorney refused to accept the subpoena through email, the U.S. Marshals Service was forced to personally deliver the subpoena to her, according to the Daily Caller.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioned Willis’ conduct.

“Did Fani Willis misuse federal grant money for personal benefit? Did she misuse Georgia taxpayer money for personal benefit? Why aren’t Democrats asking these questions?” Jordan wrote on the platform.

The subpoena is related to Willis’ prosecution of the former president amid accusations that she fired an employee for allegedly preventing a senior campaign official from misallocating federal funds.

In January 2024, the Washington Free Beacon reported that an employee in Willis’ office, Amanda Timpson, warned the district attorney that an aide in the office was contemplating using a “$488,000 federal grant—earmarked for the creation of a Center of Youth Empowerment and Gang Prevention—to pay for ‘swag,’ computers, and travel.”

A source discussing the matter with the Daily Caller questioned why Willis refused to comply with the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena.

“Why wouldn’t Fani Willis just accept service like everyone else? Making the U.S. Marshal’s Service use taxpayer money to do this is a complete waste of time and resources. But we shouldn’t be surprised when it comes to her office,” the source told the outlet.

Willis recently admitted to having an intimate relationship with the top prosecutor in her case against Trump, Nathan Wade. The admission was included in a 176-page court filing responding to allegations brought forth against the district attorney by co-defendant Michael Roman in the case against the former president, according to the Gateway Pundit.

Although Willis acknowledged the relationship with Wade, she denied having received financial benefits from it.
