Jim Jordan Has Sent A Subpoena To Fani Willis After Serious Whistleblower Allegations Come To Light

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) issued a subpoena to Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis on Friday in response to allegations that she terminated a staffer who raised concerns about potential misuse of federal funds.

This move is part of the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into whether Willis employed federal funds in her inquiry into former President Donald Trump.

Despite multiple requests from the Judiciary Committee last year, Willis, who is actively pursuing convictions against Trump in a Georgia racketeering and election interference case, has not voluntarily provided requested documents.

Jordan conveyed his concerns about the oversight of Willis’s office, particularly in light of recent accusations regarding the alleged misuse of federal funds and the subsequent termination of the whistleblower who alerted Willis to the misconduct. These allegations were initially reported by The Washington Free Beacon.

The letter from Jordan to Willis stated, “These allegations raise serious concerns about whether you were appropriately supervising the expenditure of federal grant funding allocated to your office and whether you took actions to conceal your office’s unlawful use of federal funds.”

The Free Beacon reported on a recording revealing that Amanda Timpson, an employee in the district attorney’s office, met with Willis in 2021 to caution her that a campaign aide intended to utilize part of a $488,000 federal grant for purposes not aligned with its original intent.

Timpson was allegedly dismissed less than two months after the meeting. The DA’s office justified the termination, stating that Timpson, a holdover from the prior administration, failed to meet the standards of the new administration after filing a whistleblower complaint.

Jordan, in his letter, emphasized that the Judiciary Committee had previously requested various materials relevant to their oversight. However, in response to the whistleblower allegations, they are prioritizing the production of documents related to the receipt and use of federal funds. The subpoena issued by Jordan specifically addresses the requested documents and information.

This is not the first subpoena targeting Willis. Last month, she was subpoenaed in another case after court filings revealed that special prosecutor Nathan Wade funded her trips on at least two occasions in 2022 and 2023, a period when Willis had already enlisted Wade to oversee her RICO case against Trump.
