According to numerous reports, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has now reportedly testified in Atlanta in support of his request that the Georgia election lawsuit be transferred to federal court.
Meadows unexpectedly testified for several hours on Monday and will do so again in the afternoon, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and other publications.
In order to claim immunity and have the accusations dismissed, Meadows is attempting to transfer his charges from state court to federal court.
Meadows must establish three things in order to change courts: that he was a federal officer, that the accusations concern an action done “under color of such office,” and that he has a strong federal defense.
The first of the five co-defendants in the case to apply to have their charges moved is Meadows.
The hearing for Meadows is being presided over by U.S. District Judge Steve Jones, who will also hear the requests of the other parties.
He has set hearings for two of them for September 18 but has not yet responded to the demands of the other three co-defendants.
Fani Willis (D), the district attorney for Fulton County, Georgia, prosecuted Meadows along with Trump and 17 other people for allegedly attempting to rig the 2020 election.
