Fani Willis evidentiary hearing endsPerjury accusations and reports of death threats highlighted a second day of courtroom drama in a Georgia hearing to determine if District Attorney Fani Willis will be disqualified from the trial of Donald Trump on charges of election interference.

At issue are questions about whether Willis and Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor she hired for the case, should be removed because of their romantic relationship. Willis and Wade each took the witness stand to describe their relationship, insisting it had nothing to do with the case against Trump. "These people are on trial for trying to steal an election in 2020,” Willis said, gesturing to the defense table. “I’m not on trial no matter how hard you try to put me on trial.”

Friday's courtroom action featured Willis' dad testifying about death threats from the time Willis was sworn in to her job. “There were people outside her house cursing and yelling calling her the B-word and the N-word,” he said. “It was bizarre.”

Willis's father, John Clifford Floyd III, said he hadn't met Wade until last year, and only found out about their relationship a few weeks ago. Attorneys for the defense had sought to show there was a romantic relationship before Willis hired Wade.
