On Wednesday, a Georgia circuit judge ordered former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows to testify in an ongoing election investigation.
Circuit Judge Edward Miller ruled that Meadows must cooperate in the probe by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who’s investigating former President Donald Trump and his associates for possible criminal interference in the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, according to The Hill.
Willis is looking into possible 2020 election interference in Georgia, which was initiated after a January 2021 conversation came to light of Trump urging Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger to “find” more than 11,000 votes.
“I am going to find that the witness is material and necessary to the investigation and that the state of Georgia is assuring not to cause undue hardship to him,” Miller ruled
Willis subpoenaed Meadows in August, noting that he had been a part of a meeting in December 2020 with Trump and others “to discuss allegations of voter fraud and the certification of the electoral college votes from Georgia and other states.”
She also noted Meadows’ attempt to observe an audit of election results in the state and also stated that the former Trump official was involved in the infamous call with Raffensberger.
