A grand jury in Fulton County indicted former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants on Monday evening in relation to efforts to dispute the 2020 election results in Georgia.  The 98-page indictment charges Trump with 13 counts.  Among the co-defendants are former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Trump’s former attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, and attorney Sidney Powell.  A total of 41 charges were filed in the case and all 19 defendants were charged on the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, as well as a number of other charges.  On Trump’s campaign website, he published a video saying, “Justice and the rule of law are officially dead in America. This marks the fourth act of election interference by Crooked Joe Biden and the communist Democrats who are absolutely destroying our country.” Trump alleges the latest criminal charges against him are a politically-motivated attack launched by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
