(DailyVantage.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s legal issues aren’t over, as a fourth indictment may be coming. The charge would come from Georgia, where Donald Trump’s attempts to prevent an investigation by a district attorney failed.
Trump wants to avoid another criminal indictment, likely relating to his alleged attempts to undermine the 2020 election results. While the looming indictment hasn’t been formally confirmed, it seems likely that Trump will face another criminal case in the coming weeks. Trump is already facing criminal charges in New York, Washington, D.C., and Florida.
Among the crimes that Trump stands accused of are mishandling classified documents and making illicit payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump is under investigation in Georgia due to a phone call between the former president and the Georgia Secretary of State during which he allegedly asked the official to aid in flipping the state in the 2020 election, an illegal act if proven true.
Trump has already been charged with crimes related to the 2020 election in Washington, D.C., and will likely face trial during the primary season in next year’s presidential election. While Trump’s legal team remains silent about the looming additional indictment, his attorneys remain adamant that Trump is innocent and is simply the victim of political weaponization.
Trump’s looming Georgia charge may even utilize the RICO statutes and charge Trump with racketeering for his alleged election interference. RICO charges are typically used against organized crime groups, such as the mafia or cartels, meaning Trump may be the first United States president charged under the RICO statutes. Georgia officials haven’t announced whether their investigative probe will involve RICO charges, but it isn’t entirely impossible.
The election probe is an effort by the District Attorney of Fulton County, Fani Willis, who confirmed that a decision to press charges from her investigation is looming. Willis confirmed that an official announcement regarding the pending charges would occur before September. Trump has repeatedly proclaimed himself innocent concerning the various criminal indictments against him and will likely plead not guilty if charged within the state of Georgia.
