Meadows, a former key aide to former President Donald Trump, was arrested last month

In a recently published article from The Week.com, Meadows claimed that his case should be transferred to federal court since he was a government employee at the time of the alleged crimes. However, Meadows’ plea was denied by U.S. District Judge Steve C. Jones of Atlanta, who wrote in his order that the former chief of staff was not operating in an official government position when he allegedly sought to reverse the election.

Meadows had not demonstrated that the conduct that precipitated the state’s prosecution were tied to his federal job, according to Jones, who believes that his alleged participation with post-election activities was unrelated to his function as White House chief of staff or his executive branch power.

On Friday, a judge refused Mark Meadows’ plea to transfer his Georgia election fraud case to federal court

In a recently published article from AP News, Meadows “has not met even the ‘quite low’ threshold” to bring his case to federal court, wrote U.S. District Judge Steve Jones in Atlanta in a 49-page opinion, stressing that the question was whether the conduct at issue were relevant to his employment as a federal official.

The judgment is a significant early victory for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who spent two and a half years investigating and constructing the case against former President Donald Trump, Meadows, and 17 others before getting the broad indictment under Georgia’s anti-racketeering legislation. She has stated that she wishes to trial all of the defendants together.
