The Ohio Republican congressman is attempting to determine whether Willis worked with government officials, including the Biden White House, to indict former President Donald Trump earlier this month.
“There are questions about whether and how your office coordinated with DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith during the course of this investigation,” Jordan remarked in a letter published this morning.
Smith, who is serving as special counsel for the Department of Justice, hit Trump with four separate charges earlier this month that are related to his objection to the certification of the 2020 presidential election.
Conservatives have decried Smith’s efforts as a form of political retribution that has turned the United States into a banana republic. Others have argued that the indictments are a means to keep media attention off Joe Biden and corrupt son Hunter’s dealing in Ukraine and China.
“The circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated,” Jordan said in his letter.
Trump was slated to arrive today at a Fulton County jail in Atlanta for arraignment. Throngs of supporters have been waiting to greet him upon arrival. His bail has been set at $200,000. He has said he will plead not guilty.
On X earlier today, Jordan openly questioned if Willis was plotting with the Biden administration.
“Was Fulton County DA Fani Willis working with Jack Smith? Was she communicating with the Executive Branch? Were any federal funds used in the investigation of President Trump?” he asked.

Jordan’s letter to Willis also recalled that “news outlets have reported that your office and Mr. Smith ‘interviewed many of the same witnesses and reviewed much of the same evidence’ in reaching your decision to indict President Trump.”
As LifeSiteNews previously reported, a grand jury submitted a 41-count indictment of Trump on Monday, August 14. The suit was filed against him and 18 of his allies in connection with his alleged attempts to pressure Georgia officials into tilting the 2020 election results in his favor – a claim his supporters have argued is inaccurate.
Among those who were charged include Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Sidney Powell, among others.
The Judiciary Committee is demanding Willis turn over any and all communications between herself and Smith, as well as the Biden DOJ and any federal agencies. She has also been asked to turn over documents related to her use of federal dollars. The committee has given her a deadline of Thursday, September 7 to comply.
