Trump Indicted On RICO Charges In Georgia Election Probe

On Monday, former President Donald Trump and a number of his associates were officially indicted in Georgia. They stand accused of plotting to unlawfully overturn the outcome of the 2020 election, in which Trump faced defeat. This marks the fourth instance of criminal charges being brought against the former president, and it’s the second case to allege that he attempted to undermine the election results.

The indictment from the Fulton County grand jury against Trump is the result of a comprehensive two-year investigation. The probe was initiated due to a phone call that took place in January 2021. During the call, then-President Trump suggested to Georgia’s Republican secretary of state that he should help him “find 11,780 votes,” which was the number needed to reverse his narrow loss to Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Among the individuals charged as co-conspirators in this indictment, which has just been made public, are Trump’s legal advisors Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Ken Chesebro, and Jeffrey Clark.

Additionally, Mark Meadows, the former Chief of Staff under Trump, is also facing charges in connection to these allegations.

The Trump campaign released this statement:

“Like Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, Deranged Jack Smith, and New York AG Letitia James, Fulton County, GA’s radical Democrat District Attorney Fani Willis is a rabid partisan who is campaigning and fundraising on a platform of prosecuting President Trump through these bogus indictments. Ripping a page from Crooked Joe Biden’s playbook, Willis has strategically stalled her investigation to try and maximally interfere with the 2024 presidential race and damage the dominant Trump campaign. All of these corrupt Democrat attempts will fail.

“Combined with the intentionally slow-walked investigations by the Biden-Smith goon squads and the false charges in New York, the timing of this latest coordinated strike by a biased prosecutor in an overwhelmingly Democrat jurisdiction not only betrays the trust of the American people, but also exposes true motivation driving their fabricated accusations.

“They could have brought this two and half years ago, yet they chose to do this for election interference reasons in the middle of President Trump’s successful campaign. He is not only leading all Republicans by a lot but he is leading against Joe Biden in almost every poll. President Trump represents the greatest threat to these Democrats’ political futures (and the greatest hope for America).

“The legal double-standard set against President Trump must end. Under the Crooked Biden Cartel, there are no rules for Democrats, while Republicans face criminal charges for exercising their First Amendment rights.

“These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President. Call it election interference or election manipulation—it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.

“They are taking away President Trump’s First Amendment right to free speech, and the right to challenge a rigged and stolen election that the Democrats do all the time. The ones who should be prosecuted are the ones who created the corruption.

“President Trump will never give up and will never stop fighting for you, as we all work to Make America Great Again in 2024.”
