Trump’s mögliche Mitverschwörer
August 3, 2023 -
In der jüngsten Anklage gegen den ehemaligen Präsidenten Donald Trump werden sechs nicht namentlich genannte Mitverschwörer beschuldigt, ihm bei seinen Versuchen seine Niederlage bei der Wahl 2020 zu kippen, geholfen haben.
U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith has not named the six alleged co-conspirators. Still, media reports have identified the likely conspirators based on descriptions in his indictment.
Detailed descriptions of the actions of five of the people all but directly identify some of Trump’s closest associates -- all of who have denied wrongdoing.
Media outlets have identified the five co-conspirators as possibly Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s former personal attorney; White House lawyer John Eastman; Trump attorney, Sidney Powell; former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark; and attorney Kenneth Chesebro.
The description of the sixth co-conspirator is a “political consultant who helped implement a plan to submit fraudulent slates of presidential electors to obstruct the certification proceeding” and is not immediately apparent.
The indictment gives few details beyond references that the political consultant identified attorneys who could help carry out a scheme to present fake electors to Congress as lawmakers certified the election results.
