The Fulton County District Attorney in Georgia is preparing to issue a broad racketeering indictment against Donald Trump for his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to insiders. The indictment could down as early as next month. This would be the fourth indictment Trump would face following reports that he is charges are coming for his role in the Jan. 6 riots.
Reports detail that the Georgia district attorney have gathered enough evidence to pursue a large-scale racketeering indictment. The charges are predicated on statutes related to influencing witnesses and computer trespass. The witness influencing could pertain to Trump’s conversations with Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, in which Trump asked for additional votes to be found. The computer trespass charge involves a breach of voting machines in Coffee County, where sensitive data was copied and uploaded for access by election deniers.
Although Coffee County is not usually within Fulton County District Attorney’s jurisdiction, the racketeering statute allows for this inclusion as it was part of the broader effort to maintain Trump’s position as President.
This ongoing investigation has taken over two years and has seen scrutiny at both the state and federal level, including investigating Trump’s attempts to reverse his defeat leading up to the January 6 Capitol attack.
