- House Republicans are about to introduce legislation that would restrict state and local prosecutors from prosecuting current or former presidents by allowing such cases to be moved to federal court, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan told Just the News on Thursday.
- Jordan said the lead legislation, spearheaded by fellow committee member Rep. Russell Fry (R-S.C.), would give America’s chief executives a venue-change option.
- Slated to be introduced this week, the bill, according to Jordan, “says if you have someone, a local DA, going to take on a former president and a current candidate and they go indict them, then that case automatically gets bumped to federal court, not some local or state court.”
