Jim Jordan Just Won’t Stop Sending Fani Willis Angry Letters.
House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan on Wednesday accused the Georgia district attorney who indicted ex-President Donald Trump of focusing on “advancing a political cause” and her “own notoriety” instead of fairly administering the law as he demanded a response to his committee’s inquiries.

On the day that Trump surrendered at the Fulton County jail on charges that he illegally conspired to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia, Jordan announced a Judiciary Committee inquiry into whether Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis coordinated her work with federal law enforcement.

Willis replied with a harshly worded letter that dismissed Jordan’s inquiry as an attempt to interfere with an active Georgia criminal case, a move she described as “flagrantly at odds with the Constitution.”

“The defendants in this case have been charged under state law with committing state crimes,” her letter said. “There is absolutely no support for Congress purporting to second guess or somehow supervise an ongoing Georgia criminal investigation and prosecution. That violation of Georgia’s sovereignty is offensive and will not stand.”

Willis’ indictment alleges 161 improper acts by Trump and his associates, including a call where Trump urged Georgia’s Secretary of State to “find” the 11,780 votes needed to overturn his election loss. The indictment also accuses Trump of making false statements and writings for telling state election officials that up to 300,000 ballots “were dropped mysteriously into the rolls” in the 2020 election, that more than 4,500 people voted who weren’t on registration lists and that a Fulton County election worker, Ruby Freeman, was a “professional vote scammer,” among other claims.

On Wednesday, Jordan shot back with another letter that said his committee has “a strong legislative interest in ensuring that popularly elected local prosecutors do not misuse their law-enforcement authority to target federal officials for political reasons. We can only conclude from your hostile response to the Committee’s oversight that you are actively and aggressively engaged in such a scheme.”

“The indictment of a former President of the United States and other former senior federal officials by an elected local prosecutor of the opposing political party, who will face the prospect of re-election, implicates substantial federal interests,” it continued. “If state or local prosecutors can engage in politically motivated prosecutions of senior federal officers for acts they performed while in federal office, this could have a profound impact on how federal officers choose to exercise their powers.”
