Trumps Anklagen wegen krimineller Taten

By Duncan Mil

August 2, 2023 - Gegen Donald Trump wird zum vierten Mal in fünf Monaten Anklage erhoben wegen seiner Bemühungen den Wahlverlust von 2020 umzudrehen. Trump ist der erste ehemalige US Präsident, der wegen krimineller Handlungen verurteilt werden könnte.

The federal crimes with which Justice Department prosecutors have charged former President Trump include conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction, conspiracy to obstruct certification of the Electoral College vote and Conspiracy Against Rights, which could carry prison time if convicted.

Conspiracy to Defraud the United States makes it a crime for two or more people to “conspire either to commit any offence against the United States or to defraud the United States” or any federal agency and for one of them to perform some action that would affect the object of the conspiracy, which carries a fine or maximum prison sentence of five years if convicted.

Obstruction of an Official Proceeding criminalizes “obstructing, influencing, or impeding any official proceeding” or attempting to do so, which is punishable by a fine or up to 20 years in prison.

Obstruction charges relate to Trump’s alleged attempts to block Congress from certifying the Electoral College vote. The January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol building postponed the vote count.
