( – Nathan Wade, a former prosecutor associated with the Trump investigation, responded to recent criticisms from the former president on Wednesday, May 22. Speaking on MSNBC, Wade indicated that accountability, or a “day of reckoning,” is on the horizon.

Wade dismissed the remarks aimed at him by Trump, who referred to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as “Fani Wade” due to an alleged affair between Willis and Wade. Trump criticized Willis for appointing Wade, who he claimed was inexperienced, to the case against him. In response, Wade said there was “something special” about people who say things seeking a reaction and then added a, “Thank you.”

During an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Wade discussed Trump’s legal woes in Georgia. It’s still unclear when the case will go to trial, and Reid asked Wade if he believes it will even happen. Wade stated “that day of reckoning is coming.”

Wade, however, expressed uncertainty about the timing of the court proceedings, particularly in relation to the upcoming election. He emphasized that the appeals court has its responsibilities which are not for him to predict.

Reid probed further, asking Wade about what he considered the strongest evidence in the case against Trump. Wade refused to answer. However, he mentioned that he and Willis continue to support each other as friends. Wade was recently seen celebrating with Willis at her victory party following her win in the Democratic primary for Fulton County District Attorney.

Wade shared with Reid how his and Willis’s interactions have shifted from professional case discussions to more personal support conversations, focusing on coping with pressure and family well-being.

This interview followed Wade’s resignation from the Georgia case in March after a ruling by Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee. The judge decreed that either Willis or Wade needed to step down due to the “improper” affair. Wade, who joined Willis’s team in 2021, has stated that their relationship began in 2022 and ended in the summer of 2023, though they have remained friends. In his first media appearance since the resignation on ABC News with Linsey Davis, Wade commented on the ubiquity of workplace romances, calling them as “American as apple pie.”
