Allegations in the Federal Indictment
The indictment, part of the investigation led by Special Counsel Jack Smith, accuses Trump of disseminating false allegations of election fraud for over two months following the November 3, 2020, election, despite his loss. It claims that Trump was determined to remain in power and knowingly spread falsehoods regarding outcome-determining fraud.

Trump’s Criticism of the Trial Venue
In response to the indictment, Trump raised concerns about the trial location, arguing that he would not receive a fair trial in Washington, DC. He requested for the case to be relocated to an impartial setting such as the neighboring state of West Virginia, citing the district’s perceived bias against him.

Multiple Indictments and Controversy
This marks the third indictment that Trump has faced, with the second one involving the alleged mishandling of classified documents in Florida, and the third related to business fraud in New York.
