Trump signals he may seek to move Georgia election case to federal court

Former President Donald Trump may try to move his Georgia election interference case to federal court, his lawyer said in a court filing Thursday. 

“President Trump hereby notifies the Court that he may seek removal of his prosecution to federal court,” Steven Sadow, the 77-year-old former president’s lead lawyer in the case, said in a two-page notice to Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee. 

Trump can formally request the move within 30 days of his arraignment, which occurred on Aug. 31 when he submitted a written arraignment waiver to the Fulton County court.
