House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, says that the committee plans to look into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over an alleged illicit relationship and potentially benefiting from Trump's indictment. 

"Were federal funds involved with this?" Jordan asked on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "This is one of the questions we typically ask when we see this kind of stuff. We had this concern with Alvin Bragg in New York. So we're definitely gonna look into this." 

Jordan also said the committee would explore possible connections between Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and the White House.

Willis and an attorney she hired to prosecute former President Donald Trump, Nathan Wade, face allegations of maintaining an improper romantic relationship and benefiting financially from Trump's indictment.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Wednesday filed a complaint against Willis over this alleged incident to GOP Gov. Brian Kemp and Attorney General Chris Carr. 

"Despite this obviously illegal conflict of interest, Fani Willis has allegedly paid Nathan Wade-her secret boyfriend and special Trump prosecutor-nearly $700,000 in official funds," the complaint reads.

Greene asserted that "[i]f proven true, these actions reflect Fani Willis' serious lawlessness, including potential violation of public oath" and Georgia statutes. Willis had not responded to Greene's claim as of press time.
