Donald Trump is on trial for his freedom in a series of politically-motivated prosecutions.

He just got some bad news.

And now Donald Trump is furious after one ally flipped on him in a stunning courtroom betrayal.

Former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is one of the 18 co-defendants Fulton County’s Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis indicted alongside former President Donald Trump for allegedly challenging the results of the 2020 election.

Meadows’ attorneys filed a motion to move his case out of Democrat-controlled Fulton County and to federal court, which would allow him to face a much more fair jury pool.

Democrats’ media allies hyped up the hearing, calling it a mini-trial as both Meadows and the Democrat prosecutors would lay out their strongest arguments about the case.

Meadows took the big risk of testifying in his own defense, and some believe his appearance on the witness stand showed that his team’s legal strategy may be for him to flip on Trump.

At one point, Meadows blamed Trump for the decision to file an alternate slate of electors in Georgia, claiming he only did so to avoid being yelled at by Trump.

“What I didn’t want to happen was for the campaign to prevail in court action and not have this,” Meadows said when asked about why he proceeded with fielding a slate of alternate electors.

“Why?” prosecutor Anna Cross asked Meadows.

“Because I knew I’d be yelled at by the President of the United States,” Meadows responded.

A January 2, 2021 call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is the centerpiece of Willis’ case.

Willis twisted Trump asking for another recount, saying he only needed “11,780 more votes,” into Trump asking Raffensperger to fabricate the votes to ensure Trump won the state.

Meadows’ attorney, Michael Francisco, cross examined Raffensperger, and the Georgia Secretary of State revealed that Meadows had no role in the phone call he had with Trump, saying it was the former President alone who pushed for the recount.

“There’s a lot of statements by Mr. Trump,” Francisco said. “Mr. Meadows’ speaking roles were quite limited. He didn’t make a request that you change the vote totals — Mr. Meadows, himself?”

“Correct,” Raffensperger answered.

Criminal trials with multiple defendants can produce a situation where it’s “every man for himself.”

This is likely what Willis had in mind when she indicted 18 people alongside Donald Trump.

And Mark Meadows is the first – and likely not the last – to center their defense around blaming Donald Trump.
