Georgia Court Releases 98-Page Indictment Against Trump and Allies – Listen to Fani Defend It
The Georgia grand jury returned a 98-page indictment on Monday night in the criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The indictment alleges that Trump and his allies engaged in a “criminal enterprise” to pressure Georgia officials to overturn the election results and declare him the winner. The indictment also alleges that Trump and his allies made false claims about the election being stolen in order to deceive the public and undermine the integrity of the democratic process.
The 41-count indictment charges 19 individuals, including Trump, Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Mark Meadows, Ken Chesebro, Jeffrey Clark, Jenna Ellis, Ray Stallings Smith III, Robert Cheeley, Mike Roman, David Shafer, Shawn Micah Tresher Still, Stephen Lee, Harrison Floyd, Trevian Kutti, Sidney Powell, Cathleen Latham, Scott Hall, and Misty Hampton.
Fani Willis, Fulton County District Attorney, pursued charging individuals under Georgia’s RICO Act which allows prosecutors to “string together crimes committed by different people toward one common goal.” This makes it difficult for defense attorneys to implement a coherent trial strategy.
The Trump campaign released a statement that called Willis a “rabid partisan who is campaigning and fundraising on a platform of prosecuting President Trump through these bogus indictments.”
The statement claimed that Willis “strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign” and that the accusations contained in it were “fabricated.”
The statement blasted the indictment as “election interference or election manipulation” and said that Trump used his First Amendment rights to challenge what he has claimed was a “rigged and stolen election that the Democrats do all the time.”
This is the fourth indictment that Trump has faced since leaving office. The other three indictments are related to his efforts to overturn the election results in other states.
Listen as Fani Willis attempts to explain the Georgia indictment against President Trump and others… this is what corruption looks like people !! The democrats are destroying our country !!!
