Trump Indicted by Georgia Grand Jury

Donald Trump has yet another indictment sitting on his pile.

On Monday, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis announced that 19 arrest warrants were issued, reported CNN.

This would encompass Trump and 18 of his associates, including former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Turn Yourselves In

Willis is giving all of the defendants in the case until August 25 to surrender to authorities.

Willis stated, "Georgia, like every state, has laws that allow those who believe that results of the election are wrong, whether because of intentional wrongdoing, or unintentional error to challenge those results in state courts."

She continued on that the defendants "engaged in a criminal racketeering enterprise to overturn Georgia's presidential election result subsequent to the indictment," reported Fox News.

Yes, she is hitting some of the defendants with RICO charges in addition to obstruction, so this really is a kitchen sink indictment.

The filing stated, "That conspiracy contained a common plan and purpose to commit two or more acts of racketeering activity in Fulton County, Georgia, elsewhere in the state of Georgia, and in other states."

For Trump, that RICO charge is a big issue because it comes with a mandatory five-year sentence or fine, and you know Willis will not be happy with a fine. On the flip side of that, Trump could be sentenced to 20 years if they really want to throw the book at him.

When you consider the fact he is in a state that is now more blue than red and the jury is likely to be mostly minorities, Trump is in big trouble here.

Trump went nuclear on Willis, as we expected, but his attorneys were also very critical of the indictment.

They stated, "This one-sided grand jury presentation relied on witnesses who harbor their own personal and political interests.

"We look forward to a detailed review of this indictment which is undoubtedly just as flawed and unconstitutional as this entire process has been."

If Willis is unable to make these charges stick, you better believe that Trump will come firing back with some lawsuits after all these cases play out.

Including this case, Democrat prosecutors now have Trump's entire primary season booked with trials, but that is just a coincidence, right?
