Mark Meadows surrenders after federal judge rejects request to delay arrest in Georgia

WASHINGTON — Mark Meadows surrendered himself Thursday in Atlanta on charges connected to the Georgia election interference case.

A federal judge in Georgia ruled Wednesday that he would have to turn himself in by Friday.

Meadows, the former chief of staff to former President Donald Trump, tried to delay his arrest while he fights to move his case to federal court.

However, a judge rejected his attempt calling his request improper and baseless.

Trump said he would turn himself in on Thursday.
