(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Friday former President Donald Trump’s ex-attorney Kenneth Chesebro allegedly provided evidence to Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney connected to the Georgia 2020 presidential election interference case.
Chesebro entered a plea deal with prosecutors which required him to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit filing false documents. He is the third co-defendant, in this case, to plead guilty in this case in an attempt to avoid serving any time in prison in connection to his charges in this case.
Willis’ investigation had looked into Trump’s attempts to overturn the election results in the state after losing to President Joe Biden. Following the election Trump had claimed, without evidence, that there was widespread voter fraud in the election and that he had in fact been the winner.
The investigation had stemmed from a phone call made by Trump to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he had called for him to find the necessary votes in order to change the result of the election. Allegedly there was also a plot for a false group of pro-Trump electors from Georgia that would state that Trump had been the winner of the Electoral College.
Trump has maintained that he committed no wrongdoings and that he was completely innocent in this case. He has also argued that the case against him was an attempt to block him from winning the 2024 presidential race, as he is currently the frontrunner of the GOP primary.
Chesebro’s plea deal could cause further issues for Trump in this case as he is likely going to provide prosecutors with emails, messages, and documents that can be used in this case.
