The county judge overseeing former President Trump’s RICO case in Georgia has granted motions beneficial to several defendants, including Mark Meadows, allowing them to delay pretrial motions from Jan. 8 to Feb. 5.

Meadows is appealing to transfer his case to federal court, aiming for a more favorable jury pool and to prevent live-streaming of proceedings.

Georgia Republicans are seeking to discipline or remove Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for prosecuting Trump and others, with the state Supreme Court declining to approve rules for a new commission to discipline and remove state prosecutors.

According to the Washington Examiner, “Meadows is seeking to overturn a September ruling by U.S. District Judge Steve Jones that found the former chief of staff exceeded his role by working directly with Trump’s campaign over the former president’s bid to undo his loss to President Joe Biden in the Peach State.”

This has sparked discussions about bypassing the court’s approval to allow the commission to begin operations.

Georgia’s state Supreme Court justices wrote in an unsigned letter, “If district attorneys exercise judicial power, our regulation of the exercise of that power may well be within our inherent power as the head of the Judicial Branch.”

Adding, “But if district attorneys exercise only executive power, our regulation of the exercise of that power would likely be beyond the scope of our judicial power.”

Houston Gaines, a Republican state representative contended, “This commission has been years in the making, and now it has its appointees, rules, and regulations ready to go.”

“As soon as the legislature can address this final issue with the court, rogue prosecutors will be held accountable,” promised the lawmaker.
