Gooden Demands Transparency From Biden On Alleged Fani Willis Meeting

Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) has demanded transparency from the Biden administration about alleged meetings between White House officials and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ top prosecutor just before Willis issued her August indictment against former president and current GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

Gooden issued his demands in a letter sent to President Joe Biden, which was exclusively obtained by Breitbart News. The letter, which represents the first congressional inquiry into the scandal, comes as many Republicans are accusing the White House of coordinating with Willis to indict Trump.

The Texas congressman’s letter came in response to a court filing on Monday from Trump’s co-defendant in the Georgia election case, Mike Roman, who made four shocking claims about Willis’ conduct amid the prosecution.

Roman alleged in the filing that Willis’ lead prosecutor, Nathan Wade, was in an “improper” relationship with the district attorney. He further alleged that Wade’s law firm used the money that he was paid for his work in the case to take Willis on luxury vacations. Roman also accused Willis of appointing Wade without the required approval through official channels and asserted that he had little to no prosecutorial experience prior to being appointed. The court filing also pointed out that Wade had two meetings with Biden’s White House counsel before Trump was indicted in August.

“It has come to light that Mr. Wade while working on the investigation into President Trump’s alleged election interference, billed Fulton County for two separate meetings with White House Counsel in May and November of 2022,” Gooden explained in his letter to the president. “This information, revealed in a recent court filing, suggests a concerning level of coordination between the White House and those leading politically sensitive investigations.”

The Texas congressman went on to declare that the implications of the meetings were “profound” — arguing that the scandal may amount to election interference from the Biden administration, as they allegedly coordinated to indict Biden’s likely 2024 rival.

“This is especially concerning given the alleged personal relationship between Ms. Willis and Mr. Wade and the financial benefits they reportedly received during the course of the investigation,” Gooden added. “The involvement of the White House in a case of this magnitude undermines that confidence and suggests a misuse of power for political ends.”

“We must maintain a clear separation between political processes and legal proceedings,” he continued.

Gooden then requested that Biden provide information about whether anyone connected to his administration — including White House staff, advisors, or even Biden family members’ attorneys — met with individuals involved in investigating Trump, including Wade, Willis, Special Counsel Jack Smith, Department of Justice (DOJ) counterintelligence chief Jay Bratt, any member of the Fulton County Prosecutor’s team or any member of the Special Counsel’s prosecutor team.

The Republican congressman also requested all visitor logs from the president’s Delaware property and any communications or documents between the Secret Service and the Biden administration discussing the decision to maintain visitor logs at the Delaware property.
