A lead prosecutor in the criminal case against former President Donald Trump in Georgia met with the Biden administration’s White House Counsel’s Office prior to the indictment, according to a motion in the case filed on Monday.

Nathan Wade, the alleged romantic partner of Democratic District Attorney Fani Willis of Fulton County, was hired by Wills to be a special prosecutor in the case of Georgia v. Trump, et al. After his appointment as a special prosecutor, Wade met with officials of the White House Counsel’s Office on May 23 and Nov. 18, 2022, during Willis’ investigation of Trump and several months prior to his indictment, according to billing records included in a motion to disqualify Wade from the case.

In both cases, Wade billed the district attorney’s office $2,000 for eight hours of work regarding his meetings with the White House Counsel’s Office. The names of the officials he met with are unknown, and it is unclear whether he met with Dana Remus or Stuart Delery, Biden’s two White House counsels during that period.

Trump is the leading candidate for the Republican presidential nomination to challenge President Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election. Currently, Trump is leading Biden in a majority of polls across several battleground states.

Trump has pleaded not guilty in his criminal case in Georgia, which is one of three indictments against him, currently, and has accused the prosecutors in each case of partisan election interference on Biden’s behalf.

The White House and the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
