House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan said Friday that his panel has been in touch with a whistleblower who was fired from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis's office. 

"There's a whistleblower in her office who we have talked to ... ," Jordan said at the annual CPAC event outside of Washington, D.C., in suburban Maryland. 

He also said Willis fired this former staffer for bringing forth concerns that the Georgia prosecutor was misusing federal funds. 

"She's now talking with our office and we'll see where that goes," Jordan said. "And that's why we subpoenaed for records and documents related to this."

Willis last year indicted 2024 GOP presidential candidate and former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants over their efforts to challenge the 2020 election results in Georgia.

Her hiring of a special prosecutor with whom she has had a romantic relationship, and their apparent co-mingling of money, as raised ethics concerns – so much so that a judge is now deciding on a legal effort to have Willis removed from the Trump case.  

Judge Scott McAfee, who is presiding over the hearing, on Monday suggested Willis could be removed, saying the allegations against her "could result in a disqualification."

Earlier this month, Jordan's office subpoenaed Willis's office for documents and communications “referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds” and “referring or relating to any allegations of the misuse of federal funds.”
