Donald Trump is likely to face yet another indictment in the coming days, sources close to the matter told CNN.
The expected charge comes from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, which is reportedly looking into conspiracy and racketeering charges related to the former president’s push to overturn the outcome of the 2020 election in Georgia.
Fani Willis, the Democratic district attorney, is believed to be preparing more than a dozen indictments when she presents her case before a grand jury next week. The criminal investigation centers on allegations that Trump and his allies conspired to pressure election officials, submitted fake electors in an effort to change the outcome of the election, and even hacked voting systems in rural Coffee County in order to bring about a different result.
Trump acolytes caught up in the various schemes reportedly believe they will face charges in Georgia soon, with sources close to Trump himself saying that he is convinced he will be one of them.
The former president is already facing four other federal charges related to his attempt to stay in power, which stemmed from his pressuring of Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” votes in the state.
When asked to comment on the criminal probe, Willis’ office declined.
Senate Republican leader Geoff Duncan, former Georgia Senator Jen Jordan, and journalist George Chidi are all being subpoenaed to testify at the upcoming trial. All three previously gave testimony at a special-purpose grand jury that convened after the election; 75 other witnesses were heard in the investigation.
Various sources have told CNN that Willis and her team have been weighing racketeering charges in the Trump case. The rare statutes have been used in unusual ways to bring cases against teachers and musicians in the Atlanta area.
At a campaign event on Tuesday, Trump insisted it was a “perfect phone call,” referring to his call with Raffensperger. He continued to profess his innocence when speaking to supporters in New Hampshire that day, saying, “I probably have another one,” in reference to the pending indictments.
No details have yet been released as to the specifics of the charges, though the matter could become apparent as early as next week. People close to Trump have felt a heavy weight on their shoulders since the investigation began, but for now, all that’s left to do is wait and see.
