Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

Former President Donald Trump and the 18 others who were indicted on Monday by a Fulton County, Georgia, grand jury have been given a deadline of August 25 at noon to surrender.  The trial will likely take place within the next six months, which falls in the midst of GOP primary elections.  The charges against Trump and the others include one count of violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act and alleged engagement in “criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia—and elsewhere—to accomplish the illegal goal” of keeping Trump in office.  Fulton County DA Fani Willis claims that the charges are not politically motivated, saying, “I make decisions in this office based on the facts in the law.  The law is completely nonpartisan. That’s how decisions are made in every case to date.”
