Donald Trump has been criminally charged for the fourth time this year, with Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis unveiling an indictment Monday night concerning Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in Georgia. The indictment features 41 counts — 13 against Trump — and charges against Trump-aligned lawyers including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. The core of the indictment, a racketeering charge, implicates all 19 defendants. That brings the total number of criminal charges this year against the runaway front-runner in the GOP presidential primary to 91. The indictment is Trump’s second involving his efforts to overturn the 2020 election and the second to be brought outside federal court. Trump was charged on the federal level in special counsel Jack Smith’s investigation of his broader efforts on the election front. Smith’s probe into Trump’s refusal to return classified documents also brought an indictment. Trump’s first indictment came in Manhattan over an alleged 2016 plot to cover up hush money payments to women who alleged he had affairs with them. As in Fulton County, that prosecution was brought by a Democratic district attorney.
