(Daily Caller)—House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan and Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia launched an investigation Tuesday into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who indicted former President Donald Trump in August, for “colluding” with the Jan. 6 Committee.
The House Judiciary Committee previously launched a probe into the district attorney over her conduct in the 2020 Georgia election interference case after Willis indicted the former president in mid-August. Jordan and Loudermilk’s inquiry cites a Dec. 17, 2021, letter they uncovered that has lead them to believe “Willis’s office coordinated its investigative actions with the partisan Select Committee,” the Judiciary committee announced on Twitter.

“As you may be aware, I am conducting a criminal investigation of possible attempts to illegally interfere with the administration of Georgia’s 2020 General election. Through news reports, we are aware that your committee has interviewed witnesses relevant to our investigation. We understand from the same reports that your committee’s investigators may have collected records relevant to our investigation,” the letter from Willis to Jan. 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson reads.
“Please accept this letter as an official request from me for access to records that may be relevant to our criminal investigation. Those records include but are not limited to recordings and transcripts of witness interviews and depositions, electronic and print records of communications, and records of travel,” Willis added.

The district attorney also suggested she and her staff pay a visit to Washington, D.C., to meet with the committee’s investigators in January and February of 2022.
Willis, Thompson and Trump did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s requests for comment.
