Cellphone Data Revealed: New Evidence Raises Doubts about Testimony in Georgia Election Interference Case

Atlanta, Georgia – Lawyers representing former President Donald Trump in the Georgia election interference case are claiming that cellphone data contradicts the testimony of two prosecutors accused of engaging in an improper relationship. In a new filing, the Trump legal team presented data obtained from AT&T that suggests lead prosecutor Nathan Wade traveled multiple times to the area near Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis’ rented condo in 2021. Both prosecutors have testified under oath that their romantic relationship did not begin until early 2022.

The allegations against Willis and Wade stem from accusations that the district attorney improperly hired her lover to lead the investigation into Trump and then financially benefited from his appointment. Trump and other defendants deny the charges, but their case has been threatened by the implications of the alleged relationship. The fate of the Georgia case now hinges on the credibility of the cell-tower data and whether it indicates that the prosecutors lied under oath.

The cellphone data, analyzed by a criminal defense investigator hired by Trump’s team, shows around 12,000 interactions, including 2,000 phone calls, between Willis and Wade over an 11-month period in 2021. The data highlights a prevalence of evening calls. However, the data does not definitively prove that Wade visited Willis, and it does not provide details of what transpired during those visits.

The investigator, Charles Mittelstadt, used cell-tower geofencing methods to analyze Wade’s potential visits to Willis’ condo. Mittelstadt focused on two two-day periods in September and November 2021 and tracked Wade’s movements to the cell towers near Willis’ residence. During one visit, Wade sent Willis a text after he returned home. Both prosecutors testified that their romantic relationship began in early 2022 and denied any overnight stays during Wade’s visits to the condo.

These recent developments come after Trump co-defendant Mike Roman claimed that Willis and Wade had an improper personal relationship that financially benefited them both. Roman called for the disqualification of the prosecutors and the dismissal of charges against him, but provided no substantial evidence to support his claims.

The filing from Trump’s legal team is expected to play a crucial role in the upcoming hearing on March 1. The presiding judge, Scott McAfee, will have to determine if the prosecutors’ relationship presents a conflict of interest or even the appearance of one. McAfee will also decide if Willis’s office should be removed from the case or if any charges against Trump or his allies should be dropped.

The outcome of this case holds significant implications for Trump as he prepares to run for president once again, as he currently faces four criminal cases. The credibility of the cellphone data and the testimony of the prosecutors will be key factors in the judge’s decision. The district attorney’s office has not provided any comment on the filing, stating that they will respond in court.

The complexities of this case and the allegations against the prosecutors underscore the need for a fair and impartial trial. As the investigations and legal proceedings continue, the fate of Trump and his co-defendants will be determined by a thorough examination of the evidence and the court’s interpretation of Georgia law.
