Lawyers of the former US President have hinted at this possibility, stating that they may seek removal of the prosecution to a federal court.

Potential benefits for the former US President include a potential delay of the trial and a potentially more sympathetic jury pool.

A federal law allows an “officer of the United States” who is prosecuted in state court to move the case to federal court if they can demonstrate that the action was within the scope of their governmental duties.

The former US President is accused of orchestrating a criminal conspiracy to undermine the 2020 election in Georgia.

The former US President has pleaded not guilty to the charges, which accuse him of attempting to overturn Georgia’s election results.

Other co-defendants of the former US President in the case have previously sought to have it moved to federal court, claiming federal defenses and a larger pool of jurors, NBC News reports.

If the case is moved, the former US President could argue that his actions were part of his duties as president and seek to have the charges dismissed.

The Fulton County District Attorney’s office, which brought the case, has not commented on the filing NBC News added.
