Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has launched an investigation into whether Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis coordinated with Jack Smith about indicting former President Donald Trump.

Jordan said it was suspicious that it took Willis two-and-a-half years to indict Trump and that the trial is scheduled to start mere days before Super Tuesday.

“You did not bring charges until two-and-a-half years later, at a time when the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination is in full swing,” he said. “Moreover, you have requested that the trial in this matter begin on March 4, 2024, the day before Super Tuesday and eight days before the Georgia presidential primary.”

“The timing of this prosecution reinforces concerns about your motivation,” he added.

Willis said previously that she had no contact with Smith.

“I don’t know what Jack Smith is doing, Jack Smith doesn’t know what I’m doing. In all honesty, if Jack Smith was standing next to me, I’m not sure I would know who he was. My guess is he probably can’t pronounce my name correctly,” Willis said to reporters before she filed charges against Trump.
