Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows will appear in court in Georgia for the first time Monday, making a bid to transfer the case against him to federal court.
Meadows, who faces charges of interfering in Georgia’s 2020 election, argues that he was acting in his capacity as a federal official at the time and is therefore immune to prosecution.
Meadows’ attorneys plan to request that U.S. District Judge Steve Jones move the case to the federal system, at which time they would then move to have the case dismissed, according to the Washington Post.
