Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, former Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party David Shafer, and former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani (R) are among those charged.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, also indicted Tuesday were Trump’s co-defendants:
- State Sen. Shawn Still.
- Attorneys John Eastman, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Bob Cheeley, Ray Smith III, and Kenneth Chesebro.
- Former assistant U.S. attorney general Jeffrey Clark.
- GOP strategist Michael Roman.
- Former Coffee County elections supervisor Misty Hampton.
- Former Coffee County GOP chairwoman Cathy Latham.
- Atlanta bail bondsman Scott Hall.
- Publicist Trevian Kutti.
- Illinois pastor Stephen Cliffguard Lee.
- Harrison Floyd, who briefly ran for a suburban Atlanta U.S. House seat before serving as director of Black Voices for Trump.
The grand jury deliberated for around ten hours, heard testimony and then decided on possible charges on Monday.
Judge Robert McBurney of the Fulton County Superior Court approved the charges on Monday night at about 9:00 p.m. local time.
According to the New York Post, the grand jury was scheduled to meet through Tuesday but finished its agenda earlier than anticipated.
What allegations were made against the former President and who else may be mentioned in the indictments are still unknown.
“In the “worst case scenario,” the clerk said, “the indictments would be opened and made available to the public in three hours.”
Following the clerk’s office’s processing of the charges, Wills’ office declared it would hold a press conference.
“Willis has spent nearly three years looking into Trump’s alleged attempts to get the Georgia 2020 election results annulled.”
“Over the weekend, word spread that she intended to present several witnesses to the grand jury this week.”
Shortly after the grand jury handed down the indictments, the Trump campaign attacked Willis as a “rabid partisan who is campaigning and raising money on a platform of prosecuting President Trump through these bogus indictments.”
“Following Crooked Joe Biden’s lead, Willis purposely stalled her probe to attempt and tamper as much as possible with the 2024 presidential election and harm the Republican Trump campaign.”
“All of these dishonest Democratic initiatives will fall flat,” the statement declared.
The Trump campaign criticized the “intentionally slow-walked investigations by the Biden-Smith goon squads.” It said the indictments were filed before the 2024 election for “election interference reasons.”
The statement went on to say:
“The legal double standard set against President Trump must end. Under the Crooked Biden Cartel, there are no rules for Democrats, while Republicans face criminal charges for exercising their First Amendment rights.
These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President.
Call it election interference or election manipulation—it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.
They are taking away President Trump’s First Amendment right to free speech and the right to challenge a rigged and stolen election that the Democrats do all the time. The ones who should be prosecuted are the ones who created the corruption.”
A few hours before the grand jury handed down the ten indictments, the official court website of Fulton County, Georgia, published what seemed to be an indictment against Trump.
After approving the indictments, Judge McBurney was observed making jokes in front of the media.

The indictment against Trump in Georgia would be his fourth in the last five months.
Due to his alleged attempts to invalidate the results of the 2020 election and his management of White House papers, Special Counsel Jack Smith has filed two federal charges against Trump.
Additionally, Trump was charged with fabricating over 30 company records by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
