Former special prosecutor Nathan Wade, who resigned from the 2020 election-focused Georgia RICO case against Donald Trump and the former president’s allies, bizarrely decided to sit for an interview on CNN while knowing he would almost certainly be asked about issues currently on appeal, namely the timeline of his romantic relationship with Fulton County DA Fani Willis (D). This led to an awkward clam-up moment mid-interview.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins began by asking Wade what the current status of his relationship is with Willis, and he answered that the two are “great friends” who continue to talk “regularly” about things that are not decidedly not romantic — such as, how the DA is dealing with threats against her, democracy, and “the case will live on kind of thing.”

Moments later, Collins asked a question that had a Wade consultant signaling the interviewee to stop talking in detail.
