President Donald Trump was formally indicted late Monday for a fourth time this year following charges that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has filed against him in Georgia.
According to Reuters, Trump and 18 allies are facing a staggering 41 counts related to allegedly trying to “overturn” the 2020 election results.
The indictment includes defendant names like President Trump’s former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and the president’s allies Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, per their report.
The indictment made the following allegation:
“At all times relevant to this Count of the Indictment, the Defendants, as well as others not named as defendants, unlawfully conspired and endeavored to conduct and participate in a criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia, and elsewhere.”
Preceding this official indictment, the Fulton County court mysteriously posted an indictment list of potential charges against President Trump. The docket was almost immediately removed from the site. Then, hours later, Trump was formally indicted.
Trump pointed this out on Truth Social: “And what about those Indictment Documents put out today, long before the Grand Jury even voted, and then quickly withdrawn? Sounds Rigged to me! Why didn’t they Indict 2.5 years ago? Because they wanted to do it right in the middle of my political campaign. Witch Hunt!”
Late Monday night, the Trump campaign slammed the latest charges in Georgia as an attempt to “damage and dominate” Trump’s reelection bid.
“The legal double-standard set against President Trump must end,” they stated. “Under the Crooked Biden Cartel, there are no rules for Democrats, while Republicans face criminal charges for exercising their First Amendment rights.”
