(TheIndependentStar.com) – Adding a new controversy in her case against former President Donald Trump, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis attacked Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) by calling him a “clown” who seeks to disrupt her legal proceedings.

Watch the video further down this post.

This conflict escalated after Jordan, the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee and a staunch Trump ally, launched a probe into Willis’ office earlier this year regarding the use of federal funds.

Subsequently, Jordan threatened to hold Willis in contempt of Congress if she failed to provide the requested documents.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Willis expressed her frustration, stating:

“Jim Jordan has time after time after time attacked my office with no legitimate purpose. Anyone who knows Jim Jordan’s history knows that he only has the purpose of trying to interfere in a criminal investigation”

She accused Jordan of neglecting his own district’s significant issues, such as high crime rates and poverty, while continuing to undermine her office.

“We have complied with his subpoenas, but yet he continues his attacks to try to interfere in a criminal investigation,” she declared.

Willis also mentioned that similar tactics are now being adopted at the state level, which has decided to “follow this clown’s lead.”

“And they want to now try to interfere in an investigation and it’s not legitimate either and so it shall fail and it’s not going to go anywhere, but they are trying to attack me at every level,” she remarked.

Despite facing a Democratic primary challenger and the potential for an election against a Republican in the fall, Willis remains resolute.

Her position could be jeopardized further by election results, as both she and Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, who allowed her to remain on the Trump case, face primary challenges.

The legal proceedings against Trump, where he faces charges with 18 co-defendants for attempting to overturn his 2020 election loss in Georgia, have already experienced delays due to these political conflicts.

Amidst death threats and political pressure, Willis maintains her commitment to her role and the integrity of the judicial process.

“I need people around the country to support me, big and small, to say that we are going to be a country that still believes in the rule of law,” she emphasized.
