Georgia state Sen. Bill Cowsert says “several” whistleblowers want to speak to members of the Special Committee on Investigations’ looking into accusations against Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Friday.
“There are whistleblowers inside the Fulton County DA’s office raising complaints and allegations about the misuse of both federal funds and state funds,” Cowsert said.
“We’ve had people come forward that have asked to speak with us with relevant information. I don’t know that information yet. I’ve not interviewed them, but there are people that have information they want to share with us.”

The panel is looking into allegations, raised by co-defendants former President Donald Trump’s election racketeering case, that Willis had a personal relationship with the special prosecutor.
Both Willis and Wade have denied wrongdoing after accusations arose that they misused state money by taking trips paid for by Wade’s salary.
Cowsert told reporters that the investigation is not a “political witch hunt” targeting Willis.
“It was after The Atlanta Journal(-Constitution) and other Atlanta news outlets began reporting a lot of troubling allegations of prosecution for personal gain, misuse of federal funds, misuse of state funds, potential improprieties, improper relationships … (that) the state Senate got interested,” Cowsert said.
According to the report, the panel is made up of six Republicans and three Democrats.
