( – The District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, Fani Willis, responded strongly to a request by House Judiciary Chairman, Jim Jordan, for all documents concerning her case against former President Trump and others related to allegations of election interference.

In a detailed nine-page response, Willis criticized Jordan for his perceived attempt to meddle in the operations of her office and questioned his understanding of the Constitution. She indicated that she wasn’t obligated to entertain his demand, emphasizing that the Constitution allowed her to dismiss it as undue and unlawful intervention.

Willis’s stern response, which was made public by sources including the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Hill, emphasized that Congress has no authority or basis to oversee an ongoing criminal investigation in Georgia. She asserted that such an attempt impinges on Georgia’s jurisdictional rights.

At one point in her letter, Willis insinuated that Jordan was employing intimidation tactics, urging him to address threats directed at her instead.

The letter was in reply to an earlier one from Jordan that came shortly before Trump was due to appear at a Fulton County detention center. Jordan, who has reached out to all bodies investigating Trump with similar demands, sought details about Willis’s case and her interactions with special counsel Jack Smith.

Willis also highlighted the outcomes of the Special Purpose Grand Jury’s 10-month inquiry, which led to the current charges based on the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. She bluntly told Jordan that anyone guilty of a felony in Fulton County would face the consequences, without exceptions.

Throughout the letter, Willis commented on Jordan’s apparent lack of legal knowledge, going so far as to educate him on the role of a prosecutor and offering insights into RICO. To emphasize her point, she even recommended a book on RICO laws, mentioning its price specifically for non-legal professionals.

She further clarified that her decision to prosecute Trump was based on evidence and the law, rejecting the idea that her actions were driven by political biases.

Towards the end, Willis urged Jordan to focus on the threats she and her office have received. She shared examples of such threats, stressing her commitment to her oath to uphold both the U.S. and Georgia Constitutions and her resolve not to be swayed by undue pressures, especially from elected officials who might believe in unequal application of the law.
