This news came after the former president of the US’ lawyers said that he was trying to move the case to a federal court.
The former president of the US will not seek to move a criminal case about the 2020 presidential election case in Georgia from state to federal court, his lawyers have said on Thursday. This is a development that could simplify the former president of the US’ path to trial.
According to NBC News, the former president of the US, Donald Trump, will not seek to move his case to federal court, according to a court filing on Thursday. The filing came weeks after the former president of the US’ legal team notified the Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee that Trump was trying to pursue a federal court.
The former president of the US’ lawyer, Steven Sadow, wrote that the decision was based on the well founded confidence of the former president of the US that the Honorable Court intends to fully and completely protect the constitutional right of Trump to a fair trial and will guarantee him due process of law throughout his prosecution in the Superior Court of Fulton County.
A spokesperon for the former president of the US did not respond to a request for comment on whether the court filing on Thursday was influenced by the ruling against Meadows. On September 8, the former president of the US’ former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, was denied by a federal judge of his bid to move the Georgia case against him, a day after an attorney of Trump might seek a similar move.
Trump faces charges related to allegations that he and 18 others sought to overturn his election loss in Georgia.
According to Reuters, the former president of the US had initially indicated that he would follow Meadows’, who sought to move his case to federal court but was rebuffed. Meadows is appealing the ruling. Trump said that the criminal case and three other5s he is facing is part of a political plot aimed at preventing him from filing for next year’s presidential election.
Trump is facing criminal charges on four cases. He also is under indictment in Florida for his handling of classified documents after he left the office, in Washingtn for allegedly trying to overturn the 2020 election, and New York over hush monet paid to a porn star before the election in 2016. Trump id also facing civil lawsuit by New York attorney general alleging he and his family business overstated the value of their asset by billions of dollars in order to secure a better loan and insurance term. Trump has denied all of this and pleaded not guilty in the cases.
