Special prosecutor Nathan Wade and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis could face disbarment and potential charges if Judge Scott McAfee finds they lied under oath based on phone records contained in a court filing Friday, legal experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“The judge may find that the State was not truthful in its testimony and that its conduct in defending against disqualification is an independent basis to remove them,” Atlanta-based defense attorney Andrew Fleischman told the DCNF.
