South Carolina judge rules Meadows must testify in Georgia election probe
A judge has ordered former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to testify before a special grand jury investigating whether President Donald Trump and his Republican allies illegally tried to influence Georgia's 2020 election.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis opened the investigation early last year into actions taken by Trump and others to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden. Because Meadows lives in South Carolina, Willis had to use a process that involved getting a judge in that state to order him to appear in Georgia.
Meadows' attorney has argued executive privilege and other rights shield Meadows from testifying.
