In the racketeering case against former President Donald Trump and his aides for attempting to rig Georgia’s 2020 election results, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has reportedly now turned himself in to face charges.

On the infamous call, which was the subject of the prosecution, Trump reportedly pleaded with state election officials to find the votes he’d need to win. Meadows was reportedly present during the phone call.

Meadows, a former congressman from North Carolina, once went to Georgia in an effort to get access to a state audit of absentee ballot envelopes.

The indictment against Meadows includes two criminal counts.

He attempted to transfer the matter to a federal court.

A few criminal cases that states have filed can be removed from the federal court system by federal agents under federal law.

In the event Meadows’ campaign is successful, the Fulton County district attorney’s office would still be prosecuting the case, and state laws would still be in question, but a federal judge would preside and the jury would come from a larger geographic area in Georgia.
