A Georgia grand jury on Monday night handed up an indictment charging former President Donald Trump and 18 others with engaging in a broad conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.

CJF Editor’s note: Here is the INDICTMENT

The indictment was the dramatic conclusion to a 2-plus year investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, a Democrat.

In addition to the former president, the others facing charges include former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, attorneys Jenna Ellis, John Eastman, Kenneth Chesebro, Ray Smith, Robert Cheeley, and Sidney Powell; would-be Trump electors Shawn Still, Cathy Latham, and David Shafer; pastor Stephen Lee, election official Misty Hampton, publicist Trevian Kutti, former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, Trump campaign official Mike Roman, Scott Hall, and Black Voices for Trump leader Harrison Floyd.

Trump and Meadows are accused of working together to direct longtime aide John McEntee to disrupt and delay the Jan. 6, 2021, joint session of Congress to certify then-Democrat President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

All 19 defendants face racketeering charges under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also known as the RICO Act.

Trump also faces myriad conspiracy charges and multiple counts of soliciting a public official to violate their oath. He also faces charges for allegedly making false statements to state legislators and officials. Other charges are related to voting machines and so-called “false electors.” 

“Today, based on information developed by [the] investigation in Fulton County, a grand jury returned a true bill of indictment,” Willis said after the indictment was made public at about 11 p.m. ET.

Willis also said she has issued arrest warrants for all 19 defendants but gave them the opportunity to surrender voluntarily by August 25. In addition, Willis said she hopes to create a schedule that would start the trial in six months and plans to try all 19 defendants together.

The racketeering charge carries as mandatory prison sentence. 

There are reportedly 30 un-indicted co-conspirators.
