Former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who is tied to numerous people who worked to overturn the 2020 election including Ginni Thomas, must testify in the Georgia special grand jury investigation into the former president’s election interference, a judge ruled Wednesday.
“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,” declared Judge Edward Miller, of the Pickens County, South Carolina Court of Common Pleas, according to CNN.
Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis filed the motion in South Carolina which is where Meadows now resides. He formerly was a Republican U.S. Congressman in North Carolina.
Meadows attorneys say they will appeal, reports Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Tamar Hallerman.
