Published May 21, 2024 at 5:04 AM EDT

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who is prosecuting the Georgia election interference case against former President Donald Trump, has called Representative Jim Jordan from Ohio a "clown" who is trying to interfere in the prosecution.

Earlier this year, the House Judiciary Committee launched an investigation into Willis' office's use of federal funds. Jordan, the Republican chair of the committee and Trump ally, later threatened to hold her in contempt of Congress if she did not comply with a subpoena for documents.
