Jordan is demanding that Willis supply office documents following claims that the district attorney fired a whistleblower, NBC News reports.

That whistleblower allegedly attempted to stop the misuse of federal funds by a top campaign aide.

The subpoena is part of a larger probe by Jordan and House GOP members seeking to determine whether federal funds were used for her over two-year investigation into Trump.

Last year, Trump was charged with attempting to overturn 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.

He has pleaded not guilty.

According to Jordan, Willis has ignored two requests for the documents “referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds.”.

According to Jordan, Willis has ignored two requests for the documents “referring or relating to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office’s receipt and use of federal funds.”.

Instead of using these federal grant funds for the intended purpose of helping at-risk youths, your office sought to use the grant funds to ‘get Macbooks ... swag ... [and] use it for travel, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, via NBC News.

Moreover, the whistleblower’s direct supervisor stated that these planned expenditures ‘were part of [your] vision.’, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, via NBC News.

These allegations raise serious concerns about whether you were appropriately supervising the expenditure of federal grant funding allocated to your office and whether you took actions to conceal your office’s unlawful use of federal funds, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, via NBC News.

Last year, Willis' office wrote Jordan a letter, saying there is “no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter.”.

Any examination of the records of our grant programs will find that they are highly effective and conducted in cooperation with the Department of Justice and in compliance with all Department of Justice requirements, Fani Willis, via NBC News
