- Credit card statements revealed in divorce filings between Wade and his estranged wife show that he purchased airline tickets for himself and Willis to San Francisco and Aruba. Wade said the two split travel expenses.
- Wills said in the filing that she and Wade have completely separate financial lives. She added: “Both are professionals with substantial income; neither is financially reliant on the other.”
- Wade said in his affidavit that there was “no personal relationship” between him and Willis “prior to or at the time” he was appointed. In 2022, as the investigation was underway, Wade said he and Willis “developed a personal relationship in addition to our professional association and friendship.”
- The allegations have brought attention to Wade’s limited prosecutorial experience, and Willis has said she actually looked for higher-profile lawyers to take the job before hiring Wade. Since hiring Wade to be lead prosecutor in the Trump case more than two years ago, Willis’s office has paid his law firm more than $653,000. Willis responded to this, too, in her court filing, saying: “Wade has long distinguished himself as an exceptionally talented litigator with significant trial experience.”
