Trump and 18 Allies Charged with Racketeering in Georgia Election Scam

A grand jury in Georgia on Monday indicted former President Donald Trump and 18 of his allies on felony charges in connection with efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.

A grand jury in Georgia on Monday indicted former President Donald Trump and 18 of his allies on felony charges in connection with efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.

The sweeping 41-count indictment charges Trump with felony racketeering and numerous conspiracy charges, court filings show. The racketeering charge carries a sentence of five to 20 years, while a conspiracy conviction can result in a minimum sentence of one year in prison with a variable maximum sentence.

“Trump and the other defendants charged in this indictment refused to accept that Trump lost, and they knowingly and willfully joined a conspiracy to unlawfully change the outcome of the election in favor of Trump,” the indictment says.

The indictment alleges that Trump and his allies engaged in a “multi-state, coordinated plan” to pressure state officials in Georgia to overturn the election results. The plan included pressuring Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to change the outcome of the election, as well as filing a frivolous lawsuit in state court challenging the results.

The indictment also alleges that Trump and his allies tried to intimidate and threaten Raffensperger and other state officials, and that they made false statements to the public about the election results.

In addition to Trump, the indictment charges Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows, Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Kenneth Chesebro, Jenna Ellis, and Ray Smith.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing, and he has accused Willis of “election interference” by proceeding with the probe while he’s running for president.

The charges against Trump and his allies are the latest in a series of legal challenges facing the former president. In January, Trump was charged with inciting the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol, and he is also facing a number of civil lawsuits related to his role in the 2020 election.

The indictment in Georgia is a major development in the ongoing investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn the election results. It remains to be seen whether Trump and his allies will be convicted of the charges, but the indictment is a significant step forward in holding them accountable for their actions.

In addition to the criminal charges, Trump and his allies are also facing a number of civil lawsuits related to their efforts to overturn the election results. In January, a group of Georgia voters filed a lawsuit against Trump and his allies, alleging that they engaged in a “coordinated plan” to “defraud and obstruct the lawful administration of the 2020 general election in Georgia.” The lawsuit seeks damages for the voters, as well as an injunction preventing Trump and his allies from engaging in similar conduct in the future.

Trump and his allies are also facing a number of other civil lawsuits, including one filed by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on the Capitol. The committee is seeking documents and testimony from Trump and his allies related to their efforts to overturn the election results.

The legal challenges facing Trump and his allies are likely to continue for years to come. The outcome of these cases could have a significant impact on Trump’s political future, and they could also set a precedent for future elections.
