Former President Donald Trump now faces four new indictments after a grand jury met Tuesday to consider charges in relation to 2020 election interference.
Trump has already been previously indicted twice, most recently facing 37 charges relating to his alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort since leaving office. No other former U.S. President has ever faced criminal charges.
The grand jury Tuesday indicted Trump on charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States “by using dishonesty, fraud and deceit to obstruct the nation’s process of collecting, counting, and certifying the results of the presidential election”; conspiracy to impede the Jan. 6 congressional proceeding; a conspiracy against the right to vote and to have that vote counted; and obstruction of, and attempt to obstruct and impede, the certification of the electoral vote.
The charges mount while Trump is the leading Presidential candidate for the GOP and just three days before he is scheduled to speak at a dinner meeting of the Alabama Republican Party.
