2020 ELECTION/GEORGIA/LEGAL: “When a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, stayed at the courthouse late on Monday [August 14, 2023] after hearing evidence in the election interference case against Donald Trump and his political allies, it seemed likely that an indictment decision was on the horizon.
Later that night — while Trump was reportedly at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club anticipating the news — a 98-page indictment dropped, revealing to the former president that he had been charged with 13 felony counts tied to his attempts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results. Eighteen of his allies were charged in tandem.
‘Donald is livid,’ a political source claims of the latest update in a string of criminal investigations involving Trump. ‘He will always say that he won, that the election was rigged, and this fourth indictment was a political ambush. That is the only way he can face the day.'”
