An attorney for former President Donald Trump grilled a key witness Tuesday on why he sent a defense attorney a text confirming the start date of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ relationship with Nathan Wade.

Terrence Bradley, Wade’s former law partner and divorce attorney, testified Tuesday that he was “speculating” when he told Ashleigh Merchant, the attorney for Trump co-defendant Michael Roman, via text that Willis’ relationship with Wade began years before he was hired.

Trump attorney Steve Sadow asked Bradley, who repeatedly stated during the hearing that he did “not recall” when the relationship started, why he would “speculate” about such a piece of information when he knew Merchant was trying to establish the timeline for her motion to disqualify the district attorney.
