Nathan Wade’s Divorce Lawyer Blurts Out, ‘Oh Dang!’ as He’s Presented with Damning Texts in Fani Willis Trial

Nathan Wade’s former divorce attorney and law partner was heard muttering, “Oh dang” to himself when presented with potentially damning evidence about his ex-client’s relationship timeline as he took the stand in Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani Willis’ corruption trial Tuesday.

The witness, Terrence Bradley, was presented with a series of text messages he sent to a defense attorney in which he was asked if he believed the couple’s relationship began before Willis appointed Wade to lead the state’s investigation of former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in November 2021, according to Business Insider.

“Absolutely,” Bradley responded in the message to defense attorney Ashleigh Merchant, according to phone records read in court.

Bradley had previously denied knowing about the relationship until he was presented with the texts.

“It started when she left the DA’s office and was a judge in South Fulton. They met at the municipal court CLE conference.”

As Merchant read over these messages from the stand, Bradley could be heard whispering, “Oh dang” to himself, a clip of the trial posted online shows.

But when questioned about the timeline of Willis and Wade’s relationship, Bradley claimed he “speculated on some things” in the text exchange and did not have direct knowledge of what actually occurred, the outlet reported.

Watch:

His response puzzled the defense lawyers.

“Why in the heck would you ‘speculate’?” Trump lawyer Steve Sadow shot back, Business Insider reported.

“I have no answer for that,” Bradley testified.

He also claimed he does not remember why he texted Merchant that he “felt it started at the time,” the outlet reported.

“I do not have knowledge of it starting or when it started,” Bradley said, according to the Washington Post.

“I never witnessed anything, so you know, it was speculation.”

Bradley admitted he discussed the relationship once with Wade in their law office, but does not recall exactly when that happened.

He also acknowledged that when Merchant sent him a draft of her motion, the only error he said he found was related to a payment, the outlet reported.

The motion, however, alleged that Willis and Wade’s relationship began when Wade was still married and years before Willis appointed him to oversee the election fraud investigation, according to Business Insider.

Willis and Wade have told the court their relationship first became romantic in 2022 and have stuck by that story through their testimony, but lawyers for Trump and co-defendant Mike Roman have insisted they can prove otherwise.

They billed Bradley as a star witness in the trial.

He has previously conceded he stepped down from the law firm where he worked together with Wade following sexual assault allegations from a staffer.

Trump and his co-defendants are looking to disqualify Willis from the case and to have all charges, centered around the state’s expansive racketeering RICO law, dismissed.

The defendants have argued Willis and Wade compromised the integrity of the case as the district attorney financially benefited from Wade’s appointment.

Merchant has pointed to records that show Wade spending money on luxury travel for himself and Willis, bought with money earned from Fulton County’s coffers.

So far, the defense has also presented dozens of pings from Wade’s cellphone that place it at Willis’ rented condo in the early hours prior to 2022. A former friend of the district attorney, who owned the condo, has also testified she saw the two “hugging” and “kissing” in 2019.

Fulton County DA Ana Cross, however, suggested the ex-pal, Robin Yeartie, may have had an ax to grind after she resigned from her position as Willis’ media rep in 2021, with Yeartie herself testifying that she would have been fired if she hadn’t stepped down.

Closing arguments are set for Friday.
