Meadows Argues Fani Willis ‘Committed Errors’ In Bid To Keep Case In Fulton County

  • Mark Meadows, the former White House Chief of Staff for the Trump administration, argued in a Monday legal filing that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis “committed errors” that raise “serious constitutional concerns” in her “unnecessarily complicated” attempts to prevent his case from being removed to a federal court.
  • Meadows (pictured above) has repeatedly asserted the case brought against him by Fulton County should be tried in a federal court, citing his position as a government employee who answered directly to former President Donald Trump when his alleged offenses were committed. U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones denied various attempts from Meadows to remove the case, but late last week, the 11th Circuit announced it would hear his appeal and grant it expedited status.
  • In the new filing, Meadows’ attorneys write that Willis “unnecessarily complicated a straightforward federal officer removal case, and in the process, committed errors that raise serious constitutional concerns” and add that she failed to acknowledge Meadows was “a uniquely prominent federal officer” who is being prosecuted “based on actions taken in the White House while discharging his official duties,” as ordered by the former president.
  • “This is not a case where the Chief of Staff went down to Georgia in his private capacity and got in some kerfuffle,” the lawyers argued, “it is a criminal prosecution of the Chief of Staff based on actions taken in the White House while discharging his official duties.”
