BREAKING: Trump notifies Georgia court he 'may seek removal of prosecution to federal court'

If the move is granted, Trump may be able to invoke immunity protections for federal officials.

On Thursday, Donald Trump informed Georgia Superior Court judge Scott McAfee that he was potentially planning on moving his election interference case out of the state into federal court.

The former president has pleaded not guilty to the slew of charges brought against him by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

"President Trump hereby notifies the Court that he may seek removal of his prosecution to federal court under 28 U.S.C. §§ 1442 & 1455," attorney Steven Sadow wrote in a notice to McAfee.

"His written waiver of arraignment was filed on August 31, 2023. To be timely, his notice of removal must be filed within 30-days of his arraignment."

If the move is granted, Trump may be able to invoke immunity protections for federal officials, according to CNN.

Trump and his associates were charged with violating the Georgia RICO Act, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, false statements and writings, impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, criminal attempt to commit filing false documents, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, criminal attempt to commit influencing witnesses, influencing witnesses, conspiracy to commit election fraud, conspiracy to commit computer theft, conspiracy to commit computer trespass, conspiracy to commit computer invasion of privacy, conspiracy to defraud the state, and perjury. 

The former president recently stated that he would "absolutely" testify in his own defense.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
