(Reuters) - Nathan Wade, the special prosecutor in former U.S. President Donald Trump's election subversion case in Georgia, withdrew from the case on Friday, CNN reported, citing his resignation letter.

A Georgia judge overseeing Trump's trial had earlier said that Fulton Country District Attorney Fani Willis could remain on the case as long as she removed Wade, with whom she had a personal relationship.
