Late at night, a Fulton County grand jury in Georgia released a comprehensive 98-page indictment, comprising 41 counts, against former President Donald Trump, his legal team, and campaign aides. The indictment asserts that these defendants committed numerous offenses connected to their nationwide endeavors to challenge the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
This extensive indictment, which follows a rapid grand jury process, involves a complex web of allegations against 19 defendants in multiple states and jurisdictions. Rather than solely focusing on Georgia, it delves into the actions and statements made by the Trump campaign across various locations nationwide.
Several defendants face charges based on their assertions that the 2020 election was stolen. The indictment highlights actions such as organizing public hearings in Pennsylvania as part of an alleged illegal conspiracy. It even cites tweets from then-President Trump, urging individuals to watch public hearings that discussed voting irregularities, as contributing to the alleged conspiracy.
Additionally, the indictment outlines an alleged effort to assemble “false electors,” referring to alternative electors, despite the previous stance taken by Democrats. Remarkably, it seeks to prosecute supposed federal violations in state court, referencing actions taken by the Republican presidential candidate in the previous election.
It is important to clarify that no prosecutions have been initiated against Hillary Clinton, her legal team, or aides for their alleged involvement in the “Russia collusion” narrative aimed at overturning the results of the 2016 election. Similarly, no prosecutions have emerged from the purported “shadow campaign” by Democrats to influence the 2020 election through changes to voting regulations, news suppression, social media censorship, and incitement of social unrest.
The release of this indictment comes after the accidental posting of a nearly 40-count document on the Fulton County court’s website, which was subsequently deleted and dismissed as fictional. While the indictment references various statements made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, it notably omits Trump’s frequently misquoted remark, “I just want to find 11,780 votes.”
