Former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants indicted in Georgia election investigation

Trump indicted

Former President Donald Trump and 18 other individuals have been indicted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in connection to their alleged efforts to overturn Georgia’s election results in the 2020 election. The charges include racketeering, conspiracy, and making false statements.

Orchestrating a Plan

According to Willis’ indictment, Trump, along with some of his campaign advisors and political operatives, allegedly orchestrated a plan to pressure Georgia election officials to “find” votes in order to reverse Joe Biden’s win. The plan also allegedly involved scheming to send fake electors to Congress on January 6, 2021, in an attempt to falsely install Trump as president.

The amount of recommended indictments, as revealed by the foreperson for the Fulton County grand jury who heard months of witness testimony, was “not a short list.” Over 75 witnesses were called before the grand jury during the investigation, showing the thoroughness of the process.

The Co-Defendants

In addition to Trump, the grand jury has decided to charge several other individuals. They include:

  1. Two Republican activists who signed fake Elector Certificates: Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer and former Coffee County GOP chair Cathleen Latham.
  2. Former Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Kenneth Cheseboro, Jeffrey Clark, Jenna Ellis, and Ray Smith III.
  3. Former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows.
  4. Former Trump staffer Michael Roman.
  5. Georgia attorney Robert Cheeley.
  6. Former GOP finance chairman Shawn Still.
  7. Police chaplain Stephen Lee.
  8. Harrison Floyd, a leader with the organization Black Voices for Trump.
  9. Trevian Kutti, a Chicago publicist for Kanye West.
  10. Dallas attorney Sidney Powell.
  11. Scott Hall, a Georgia bail bondsman and Fulton County Republican poll watcher.
  12. Misty Hampton, Coffee County elections supervisor.

Denial and Racketeering Charges

Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing in the case, and in a statement released on Monday night, he criticized the “extreme anti-Trump bias” of the left-wing prosecutor and claimed that he had committed no crime.

Interestingly, the district attorney decided to prosecute Trump and his allies with racketeering charges, a charge typically associated with prosecuting the mafia. Racketeering charges come with the harshest prison sentences among the list of charges faced by the defendants.


The indictment of former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants in the Georgia election investigation is a significant development in the ongoing scrutiny of the 2020 election. The charges, including racketeering, conspiracy, and making false statements, highlight the severity of the alleged actions taken by the individuals involved. As the legal proceedings continue, the public will closely follow the case to see how it unfolds.
