NextImg:Fani Willis case reveals ex-law partner of Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade was accused of sexual assault

Nathan Wade’s former law partner — who repped the now embattled Georgia attorney during his divorce and is now a key witness for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as she battles misconduct allegations — admitted he’d previously left a firm due to sexual assault allegations.

The revelation came late Friday during the questioning of attorney Terrence Bradley by state attorney Anna Cross.

Bradley denied the assault allegation but conceded it was the main reason he left the law firm where he previously worked with Wade.

He also indicated indirectly that he paid the staffer who made the allegations.

The revelation came as a bombshell during the hearing.

Bradley had earlier claimed he left the firm mainly because he served as Wade’s divorce attorney — which would mean his communications with Wade are protected by the attorney-client privilege.

But Judge Scott McAfee said Bradley’s admission brings into doubt his refusal to answer about what and when he knew about Wade and Fani Willis’ romantic relationship.

“Mr. Bradley previously testified that the reason he left the firm was totally and completely covered by privilege. When asked by the state, he went into a factual scenario that, to my mind, I don’t see how it relates to privilege at all. And so now I’m left wondering if Mr. Bradley has been properly interpreting privilege this entire time,” McAfee said.

McAfee has scheduled a behind-closed-doors hearing with Bradley to determine matters of privilege in the testimony.

During a two-day hearing last week, Willis and her ex-lover were scrutinized over the timeline and nature of their relationship in the high-stakes hearing that will decide whether she is fit to continue in her prosecution of election fraud charges against former President Donald Trump and others.
