(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Fulton County prosecutors have argued that a group of people, including a number of lawyers, local officials, a former publicist of a rapper, the former White House chief of staff, and a retired teacher had all collaborated in an attempt to overturn the presidential elections in the state and keep former President Donald Trump serving for longer.
In the first indictment, prosecutors start off by pointing out that Trump had lost the election on November 3, 2020. They proceed to point out that in one of the states that Trump had lost, Trump and his allies had attempted to willfully overturn the 2020 election. As the prosecutors point out, the group of defendants in this case had been unwilling to accept the fact that Trump had not won the state election and had thus entered a conspiracy that would switch the election outcome to a result that would be more favorable for Trump.
Trump is one of the 19 defendants to be indicted in this case. He is facing 13 charges while there are several other charges that are not applied to Trump in this case.
Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney has pointed out that while there were multiple people mentioned in the indictment there was a clear person at the center of the indictment and that was former President Donald Trump.
As Emory University law professor Kay Levine pointed out, everyone involved in the conspiracy was either working for Trump or attempting to do something that would benefit him. As such, he is at the center of this indictment.
