A grand jury in the U.S. state of Georgia has indicted former U.S. President Donald Trump. He may be involved in attempts to influence the 2020 election, according to the indictment.
In total, the charges include 13 counts, including violation of the law on combating racketeering and corruption, incitement to violate the oath of public servants, conspiracy to forge and submit false documents, and others.
Former lawyer Rudy Giuliani and ex-assistant Mark Meadows are also defendants.
Previously, Trump’s home and office were searched.
The former president believes that the unprecedented level of corruption in the United States is the reason for the searches against him. He also believes that the Democrats do not want him to run in the 2024 presidential election.
The ex-president did not say what exactly the investigative actions were connected with, but indicated that FBI agents opened his safe and the estate “is under siege.”
The search lasted about nine hours. Media sources believe that the FBI was looking for classified documents that Trump could have taken from the White House.
