Jim Jordan Issues Warning to Fulton County DA Fani Willis Over Subpoena Compliance

In a dramatic turn of events, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, has issued a stark warning to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, escalating tensions over her alleged failure to fully comply with a subpoena related to the investigation into the potential misuse of federal grant funds.
This latest clash between congressional oversight and local legal authority shines a harsh spotlight on the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, highlighting concerns surrounding its management of federal funds and its handling of subpoena requests.

While you have indicated that additional documents may be forthcoming in response to the Committee’s subpoena, the Committee has yet to receive any additional responsive materials in the three weeks since your initial response. Accordingly, the Committee expects that you will produce all responsive documents to the subpoena in the categories prioritized by the Committee no later than 12:00 p.m. on March 28, 2024. If you fail to do so, the Committee will consider taking further action, such as the invocation of contempt of Congress proceedings.” Jordan wrote in a letter.

The subpoena, dated February 2, demanded that DA Willis provide documentation falling under two distinct categories: records and communications regarding the FCDAO’s receipt and utilization of federal funds, and those pertaining to allegations of misappropriation of said funds. While Willis’ office did furnish a response to the initial subpoena, Congressman Jordan contends that it lacked crucial documents related to allegations made by a former employee concerning the misuse of federal grant money by another ex-employee.
