The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis following allegations that her office misused federal funds.

According to a report by the Washington Free Beacon, an employee in the district attorney's office tried to stop a Willis campaign aide from using federal funds earmarked for preventing youth gang violence for the investigation into whether former President Donald Trump broke Georgia law by trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

After raising questions about the use of the funds, the whistleblower was demoted and then fired two months later.

House Republicans have launched an investigation into those allegations and are demanding documents related to the federal grant the Fulton County District Attorney's Office received and how that money was spent.

"Instead of using these federal grant funds for the intended purpose of helping at-risk youths, your office sought to use the grant funds to 'get Macbooks ... swag ... [and] use it for travel,'" House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan wrote. "Moreover, the whistleblower's direct supervisor stated that these planned expenditures 'were part of [your] vision.'"

"These allegations raise serious concerns about whether you were appropriately supervising the expenditure of federal grant funding allocated to your office and whether you took actions to conceal your office's unlawful use of federal funds," Jordan added.

This is the third time the committee has requested the documents.
