Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan’s probe into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ indictment against former President Donald Trump has seen an interesting turn of events. Jordan, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, has been looking into the indictment over suspicions that it is motivated more by politics than by a pursuit of justice.

On Tuesday, Jordan sent another letter to Willis highlighting her refusal to comply with the demands in the previous letter the committee sent. Of particular note, however, is a new revelation that Willis’ office reached out to the Democrats’ House Select Jan. 6 Committee to get information that could aid in her effort against Trump.

In the letter, Jordan notes that Willis’ indictment and prosecution against the former president “implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated.”

The lawmaker pointed out, “It is noteworthy that just four days before this indictment, you launched a new campaign fundraising website that highlighted your investigation into President Trump.”

Jordan then referenced a specific communication between Willis’ office and Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), who chaired the Jan. 6 committee.

Recently, the Committee became aware of cooperation between your office and the partisan January 6 Select Committee. We are in possession of a letter, dated December 17, 2021, and enclosed herein, from you to Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Chairman of the partisan January 6 Select Committee, requesting access to congressional “records that may be relevant to our criminal investigation.” Specifically, you asked Rep. Thompson for access to “record [sic] includ[ing] but . . . not limited to recordings and transcripts of witness interviews and depositions, electronic and print records of communications, and records of travel.” You even offered that you and your staff were eager to travel to Washington, D.C, to “meet with investigators in person” and to receive these records “any time” between January 31, 2022, and February 25, 2022.

Jordan also points to the “significant delay” between the launching of the investigation and the filing of charges. “The timing of this prosecution reinforces concerns about your motivation,” he wrote. “In February 2021, news outlets reported that you directed your office to open an investigation into President Trump…Yet you did not bring charges until two-and-a-half years later, at a time when the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is in full swing.”

The lawmaker also calls the district attorney out for refusing to respond to his requests sent in the previous letter when his investigation into the indictment began, noting that her September response “failed to adequately address the Committee’s requests and made several baseless excuses for refusing to provide the requested documents."

If it is true that Willis sought to work with federal lawmakers to cook up charges against the former president, then the revelation could have profound implications on the perception of the legitimacy of the efforts to prosecute Trump. It would be more evidence confirming what many already believe: The indictment is a political ploy intended to influence the outcome of the upcoming 2024 presidential election. It would further demonstrate that Democrats at multiple levels of government are colluding in an effort to ensure that Trump does not win a second term in the White House, which could have enormous consequences for the political landscape in America.
