Put simply: Monday’s indictment of Trump includes 13 state charges of racketeering, seeking public officials to violate their oaths, conspiracies to impersonate a public official, to commit forgery, to falsify writings and statements, and then filing false documents.
Another 18 people will also face charges for their alleged roles to toss Georgia into Trump’s win column. And the 41-count indictment suggests there are 30 other unindicted co-conspirators. The 98-page filing was as expected as it was unprecedented. It takes Trump’s total criminal charges to date to 91. And, it may be the only one that Trump cannot escape with a self-pardon or payoff.
Unlike the case facing him in New York, which is potentially costly but still a civil one about bogus business records, the Georgia one carries potential jail time. Unlike the civil slander verdict already found against Trump in the case of a columnist who alleged sexual assault, the question in Georgia can similarly not be resolved by checkbook. And, unlike the federal cases in Florida about alleged mishandling and misrepresenting classified documents and in D.C. over his alleged role in sparking the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the Capitol, the one in Georgia would not presumably go away should Trump return to the White House.
