( – Fani Willis, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Ga., announced late on Monday that former President Donald Trump along with 18 others were indicted in connection with their efforts to change the presidential election results. The 19 co-defendants were given until Aug. 25 to voluntarily surrender and hear the multiple charges that they are facing.

In a press conference, Willis indicated that she wanted all of the defendants to be tried and that she was hoping to see the trial start in the next six months. She has also stated that she would like all defendants to be part of one trial.

The defendants have been charged with one count relating to Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, a law that is usually used when addressing organized crime. However, as the district attorney claims the defendants were all part of a criminal enterprise in Fulton County that had a singular illegal goal, to ensure that Trump would remain in the White House.

The indictment is the result of years of investigation as Willis has been trying to determine whether Trump and his allies had attempted to change the 2020 presidential election results in the state. She has repeatedly denied that the investigation was in any way politically motivated and has argued that all of the decisions made by her office were based on the facts of the case. She has also argued that “the law is completely nonpartisan” and that all decisions she makes in cases are made in the same way.
