Jeffrey ClarkFormer Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark in new court filings sought to justify becoming involved with Georgia’s 2020 presidential election by arguing former President Trump had an “unqualified and illimitable right” to change his job responsibilities.

Clark, who is charged in Georgia alongside Trump and 17 others over their efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, heads to court on Monday to convince a judge to move his state prosecution to federal court, which would enable him to attempt to assert immunity.

To move courts, Clark must show that the allegations against him were within the scope of his duties as a federal official, among other things.

Clark is charged with two counts over his desire to send a letter to Georgia authorities asking them to hold off on certifying their election results while the department investigated. He is accused of being part of a months-long conspiracy to unlawfully keep Trump in power. Clark pleaded not guilty.
