Trump Indicted in Fulton County, Georgia? Accidental Court Leak Details 12-Count Indictment
Written by: Sam Orlando
In a shocking and potentially accidental move, a 12-count indictment detailing charges against former President Donald Trump was momentarily displayed on the Fulton County, Georgia, court website due to an administrative oversight. The document, which was swiftly taken down, comes amidst rising legal tension surrounding Trump's alleged 2020 election interference in Georgia.
According to the brief online posting, the charges against Trump include a severe felony violation of Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. The former President faces multiple counts, including:
Violation Of the Georgia RICO Act
Solicitation of Violation of Oath by Public Officer (multiple counts)
Conspiracy To Commit Impersonating a Public Officer
Conspiracy To Commit Forgery in the First Degree (multiple counts)
Conspiracy To Commit False Statements and Writings (multiple counts)
Conspiracy To Commit Filing False Documents
Filing False Documents
False Statements and Writings (multiple counts).
These charges, as per the temporary online record, span across multiple dates ranging from November 2020 to September 2021.
The inadvertent posting of this indictment document intensifies speculation surrounding Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis's impending decision on potential criminal charges in her investigation into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia.
Witnesses have recently confirmed plans to testify before a grand jury this week, further stirring the pot of legal actions surrounding the former president. Today, witnesses scheduled for later this week were called in early today, after the inadvertent posting. If these charges materialize, they would mark Trump's fourth indictment in under half a year.
These mounting legal challenges emerge as Trump eyes the GOP presidential nomination in a bid to regain the White House. Apart from the current spotlight in Georgia, he concurrently confronts federal charges for alleged 2020 election interference and possession of classified documents, along with criminal allegations in New York related to hush money transactions.
Fulton County court officials have yet to comment on the brief and inadvertent disclosure. However, with media outlets and public attention keenly tuned in, further details and clarifications are eagerly awaited.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
