Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows tried to move the case he faced in Georgia seeking to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election to federal court, but a judge denied the request. It would be easier for Meadows to apply for immunity if a federal trial were held because of the government position he held at the time of the crime. Additionally, moving the case would make Meadows’ jury more sympathetic to Trump, and the case could end up going to the Supreme Court, where most justices are supporters of the former president.
In related news, a judge released the Fulton County grand jury report investigating Trump and his allies’ efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 presidential election results. The report shows that the jury recommended charges against 38 people, including Senator Lindsey Graham and other prominent Republicans. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis ultimately charged 19 people, including the former president.
Meanwhile, New York Attorney General Letitia James updated figures on the financial fraud case Trump faces, saying he inflated his net worth by $3.6 billion a year from a previous estimate of $2.2 billion. dollars in order to obtain loans and business agreements.
