JUST IN: MORE Leaked Texts Show Exactly How Doomed Fani Willis Really Is

A new batch of text messages in the Fani Willis saga has exposed the legal peril faced by both her and Nathan Wade in the face of evidence that they perhaps lied under oath and irreparably tainted their case against former President Donald Trump.

Megyn Kelly reports that a lawyer for the defense team has provided a slew of messages between herself and Terrence Bradley, a former friend of Wade who took the stand last week during an uncomfortable inquiry into his knowledge of when the secret affair between Willis and Wade actually began.

The messages, traded between 2023 and early 2024, confirmed Bradley’s knowledge that an affair began prior to Wade being hired as a prosecutor in November of 2021. However, Bradley claimed on the stand to have forgotten all knowledge he previously admitted to Ashley Merchant, the attorney for Trump co-defendant Michael Roman.

MERCHANT: Any idea who I could get an affidavit from on the affair?

BRADLEY: No…no one would freely burn that bridge


MERCHANT: If Chris was asked under oath would he know?



MERCHANT: I figured he would

MERCHANT I didn’t expect them to be so careful [laughing face emoji]

BRADLEY: He knows but he won’t admit it

The “Chris” referenced likely refers to Chris Campbell, a former law partner of Wade’s.

Bradley’s admission of an earlier affair is the second testimony from associates to Willis and Wade contradicting sworn testimony they gave alleging their sexual relationship did not begin until after Wade was hired. A former friend of Willis previously testified in open court that their liaisons stretched back as far as 2019, and cellular phone data shows Wade staying overnight at Willis’ condo during the period when their relationship was being denied.

By January 2024, Bradley was sharing knowledge about multiple vacations taken by the couple, even saying that Wade helped Willis move homes at some point.

MERCHANT: I assume you knew about the trips…. wowowoow


MERCHANT: I’m shocked

MERCHANT: Well not really but somewhat

BRADLEY: No I didnt

BRADLEY: When did it happen

MERCHANT: Last trip was this summer

MERCHANT: May or June

BRADLEY: No I didnt know…I was gone by then

BRADLEY: Doesn’t surprise me…they took many trips to Florida



BRADLEY: California

BRADLEY: When she moved her daughter there

MERCHANT: I can’t believe they were sooooo carefree



MERCHANT: They had a full on relationship. Insane

MERCHANT: Just insane

BRADLEY: He went to help her move her

MERCHANT: Why she would hire him is insane


MERCHANT: Like just date / don’t hire him.

Asked where and when the couple met, Bradley admitted they interacted in court and private life for years before working together on the Trump case.

MERCHANT: Do you think it started before she hired him?

BRADLEY: Absolutely

BRADLEY: It started when she left the DA’s office and was judge in South Fulton

[Merchant ‘liked’ the message]

BRADLEY: They met at the Municipal court clerk conference.

MERCHANT: That’s what I figured / When he was married

– January 5, 2024, 9:52am to 9:53am

Asked two hours later to confirm the time and location, Bradley did so.

MERCHANT: Is this accurate? / Upon information and belief, Willis and Wade met while both were serving as Magistrate Judges and began a romantic relationship at that time.

BRADLEY: No Municipal court

MERCHANT: Thank you

BRADLEY: But you can’t put where they met not many people know that

BRADLEY: I might be one of only not even chris campbell

Merchant went to lengths to keep Bradley from appearing as the source of information in her initial filings, saying much of her information also came from the lawyer for Wade’s ex-wife.

MERCHANT: I’m almost done with my motion / I’m not filing u til Monday / Go home and sleep:-)

MERCHANT: I can send you a draft / Can’t wait to hear about your trip

BRADLEY: Ok…happy hunting lol

– January 5, 2024, 3:06pm to 3:08pm

As Kelly notes, Bradley practically freely shares his thoughts on Willis and Wade, making his lack of knowledge during testimony under oath all the more damning for him as well.

BRADLEY: I really appreciate you keeping me out but I think you need to add me in the footnote 15 because I had a contract as well that way it doesn’t seem like I was involved


BRADLEY: It’s ok…add me to footnote 15 and how much I made

MERCHANT: I took you out / I can add that back!

MERCHANT: Good point

BRADLEY: Yes add it back

MERCHANT: Anything else ? Anything that isn’t accurate?”

BRADLEY: Looks good

– January 6, 2024, 12:02pm to 12:06pm

Asked how he thought the legal power couple would react to Merchant’s allegations, Bradley thought hubris would get the better of them.

MERCHANT: How will they react to this? / Attack me? Give the stupid no fear or favor speech?


BRADLEY: No they will deny it


BRADLEY: They won’t attack you


MERCHANT: I am shocked she paid him so much / How did they think they wouldn’t get caught!!!

MERCHANT: So careless / Why not just NOT pay nathan? / Lord.

BRADLEY: Arrogance

– January 6, 2024, 12:11pm to 12:43pm

Kelly goes on to speculate why Bradley would sing like a canary and later clam up, proffering that he feared jeopardy for divulging privileged information or feared the wrath of a district attorney who, as Kelly puts it, “likes to bring charges with no foundation legally.”

The drama has badly damaged Willis’ ability to manage her case against Trump and put her in the crosshairs of the Georgia Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Judge Scott McAfee will decide whether she should be disqualified from the case.
