Trump’s four criminal cases
August 15, 2023 - An Atlanta grand jury has indicted Donald Trump for scheming to overturn his 2020 Georgia election loss. This fourth indictment brings the number of criminal counts he faces to 91.
The indictment charges Trump with 13 criminal counts, including racketeering and conspiracy. The 41-count indictment also charges 18 co-defendants, including his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, and a top former Justice Department official, Jeffrey Clark.
The indictment also names lawyers John Eastman, Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, Jenna Elli, Ray Smith, and others for violating Georgia’s RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) act.
The racketeering charge carries a sentence of five to 20 years, while a conspiracy conviction can result in a minimum sentence of one year.
“Trump and the other defendants charged in this indictment refused to accept that Trump lost, and they knowingly and willfully joined a conspiracy to unlawfully change the outcome of the election in favour of Trump,” the indictment says.
Trump has denied all wrongdoing, as Giuliani did before the indictment was made public.
