A grand jury in Georgia has indicted former President Donald Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and two other former advisers on charges of attempting to interfere in the state's 2020 election results. The charges are the first criminal charges to be filed against Trump in connection with his efforts to overturn the election results.
The indictment alleges that Trump and his associates contacted Georgia officials in the weeks after the election and pressured them to "find" enough votes to overturn Biden's victory in the state. The indictment also alleges that Trump and his associates made false claims about the election being stolen and threatened state officials with criminal prosecution if they did not comply with their demands.
The charges against Trump and his associates are serious and could have far-reaching implications. If convicted, Trump could face up to 10 years in prison. The charges could also make it more difficult for Trump to run for president again in 2024.
