Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Tuesday pleaded not guilty and waived his arraignment in Fulton County on Georgia state charges alleging that he attempted to overturn the 2020 election in favor of his boss, then-President Donald Trump.
In addition to Meadows, five other defendants in the case pleaded not guilty and waived their arraignments, CNN reported.
Of the 19 defendants charged, including Trump, all but one has pleaded not guilty. Former Coffee County election official Misty Hampton will need to enter a plea or appear Wednesday for the arraignment in person.
Meadows is charged with violating a Georgia law against racketeering and of soliciting a public officer to violate their oath in order to have alternate electors vote in favor of Trump in the 2020 election.
Meadows, who had already agreed to post $100,000 bail in the case, is attempting to move his trial to federal court, which could produce a more favorable outcome for him.
