'Star witness' testifies his claims about Fani Willis were only 'speculation'

ATLANTA - A lawyer billed as the "star witness" in the case to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis (D) testified Tuesday that it was mere "speculation" when he told a defense attorney that Willis began a romantic relationship in 2019 with the outside lawyer she appointed to lead the case against Donald Trump, years earlier than Willis has publicly acknowledged.

Terrence Bradley, a former law partner of special prosecutor Nathan Wade, repeatedly testified under oath that he did not know when the relationship between Willis and Wade started and could not remember the date of when he learned about it from Wade, frustrating defense attorneys who had claimed his testimony would "refute" claims by Willis and Wade that their romantic relationship began months after Wade was appointed to manage the Trump case.

"I do not have knowledge of it starting or when it started," Bradley testified Tuesday. "I never witnessed anything. So, you know, it was speculation."
