(TargetLiberty.org) – On Wednesday Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney called for the judge to reflect both bids made by Mark Meadows, the former White House Chief of Staff, and Jeffrey Clark, a former Department of Justice official, that would block their arrest following their recent indictment in the state on election interference charges.
The two men are looking to block their arrest as they are currently expected to turn themselves in by Friday afternoon.
Last week a total of 19 defendants were charged in the case led by Willis, including former President Donald Trump, Clark, and Meadows. The case is connected to the group’s attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.
However, Clark and Meadows have been trying to get the charges against them moved from the state to the federal court and have been trying to claim constitutional immunity and several other defenses that if successful could lead to the charges against them being completely dismissed.
Following last week’s indictment on Monday night, Meadows was quick to file paperwork to have the charges against him moved to a federal court. Two other defendants, Clark and David Shafer, took a similar approach days after Meadows’ filing. However, Shafer has already voluntarily turned himself in, while Meadows and Clark put a request on a federal judge on Tuesday to block their arrests.
On Monday, Meadows also has a court hearing scheduled which is going to help determine whether or not the case against him should continue. Thus far, Willis has rejected the extension of the Friday deadline for Meadows.
