Trump To be Indicted on Racketeering Charges in Georgia: Report

Former President Donald Trump To be Indicted on Racketeering Charges in Georgia, according to a recent report.

Insiders familiar with the grand jury’s direction in Fulton County, Georgia, have disclosed that former President Donald Trump is likely to face indictment next month on racketeering charges in connection with his efforts to overturn his election loss in the state.

Citing the sources, The Guardian reported District Attorney Fani Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, has gathered substantial evidence to support a comprehensive racketeering indictment.

Prosecutors are poised to establish the existence of an “enterprise” and demonstrate a pattern of racketeering activity, based on at least two qualifying crimes: Influencing witnesses and computer trespass, the sources said.

Trump’s legal quagmire has become precarious following his post-2020 election actions, where he allegedly made calls to top Georgia officials, urging them to find additional votes to secure the state’s 16 Electoral College votes and defeat President Joe Biden.

According to The Guardian, Willis has amassed enough evidence to pursue a racketeering indictment, focusing on statutes related to influencing witnesses and computer trespass. The computer trespass charge would entail proving that defendants accessed a computer or network without authorization to interfere with data or programs. This includes the incident where Trump operatives, reportedly paid by his attorney Sidney Powell, breached voting machines in Coffee County and copied sensitive voting system data from the county’s election office.
