The county judge overseeing former President Donald Trump’s RICO case in Georgia has granted motions beneficial to several defendants, including Mark Meadows, allowing a delay in pretrial motions.

Meadows is seeking to transfer his case to federal court, as are others, in hopes of a more favorable jury pool and preventing televised proceedings.

Trump initially considered a federal court transfer but has decided to remain in the current court. (Trending: Democrat Excludes White People From Holiday Party In Controversial Email)

“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,” justices wrote.

“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.”

Four defendants have taken plea deals, and the rest are scheduled for trial in August 2024.

Georgia’s state Supreme Court declined to approve rules for a new commission to discipline state prosecutors, prompting debate among Georgia Republicans.

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

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