No one is safe when it comes to Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Jordan demanded that she provide documentation by Sept. 7, but instead, Willis sent a nine-page retort with details of the “inaccurate information and misleading statements” his letter held. “Its obvious purpose is to obstruct a Georgia criminal proceeding and to advance outrageous partisan misrepresentations,” Willis wrote. “As I make clear below, there is no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter, as you attempt to do.”

The district attorney accuses Jordan of violating the U.S. Constitution by attempting to interfere with and obstruct her office’s prosecution. She says his inquiry violates state sovereignty over matters of state law. “Your public statements and your letter itself make clear that you lack any legitimate legislative purpose for that inquiry: your job description as a legislator does not include criminal law enforcement, nor does it include supervising a specific criminal trial because you believe that doing so will promote your partisan political objectives,” Willis continued.

The threats haven’t stopped Willis and her team from doing their job. In August, Trump faced felony racketeering and conspiracy counts in a 41-count indictment, naming 19 defendants, according to NBC News. In response to Rep. Jordan’s probe, Willis said if people want to avoid felony charges in Fulton County, including violating state racketeering and RICO laws, then they shouldn’t commit those felonies.
