Former President Donald Trump was charged Monday night in his fourth criminal indictment – this one pertaining to the aftermath of the 2020 election in Georgia.
Trump has been charged with 13 counts pertaining to alleged election interference, election fraud and racketeering.
He was charged alongside 18 alleged co-conspirators, whose names range from high-profile members of the Trump apparatus to local officials, publicists and religious leaders.
In the indictment, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis highlighted the phone call during which Trump urged the state’s secretary of state Brad Raffensperger to ‘find’ votes for him, as well as the convening of the alternate slate of Georgia electors who pledged their loyalty to Trump over Joe Biden.
The 98-page indictment describes the group as ‘a criminal organization whose members and associates engaged in various related criminal activities including, but not limited to, false statements and writings, impersonating a public officer, forgery, filing false documents, influencing witnesses, computer theft, computer trespass, computer invasion of privacy, conspiracy to defraud the state, acts involving theft, and perjury.’
