The judge noted "an odor of mendacity" in Willis' testimony and gave her the option to remove Wade or face disqualification from the case.

Trump celebrated Wade's resignation, calling it a resignation "in disgrace.

Wade cited the "interest of democracy" in his resignation letter, aiming to move the case forward quickly.

Willis expressed gratitude for Wade's professionalism and efforts in leading the election fraud case against Trump and 14 other defendants.

Wade's resignation came amid allegations of a romantic relationship between him and Willis, which had thrown the case into turmoil.
