On August 13, after Fulton County, Georgia D.A. Fani Willis released a 98-page indictment alleging that Trump and his co-defendants partook in an organized criminal enterprise to attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Trump’s favor, despite knowing that he had lost the election.

The indictment cites Trump's infamous call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he pressured Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to flip the election results in that state.

The charges were approved by a grand jury of Georgia citizens. The charges include alleged efforts to induce officials to violate their oaths, forgery, false statements, and racketeering charges.
