Following the release of a detailed investigation on the alleged voting fraud in Georgia during the 2020 election, the former president reportedly declared he would be cleared of all allegations contained in the Georgia indictment.
In a news conference to be held on Monday in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he would discuss the report, Trump made the announcement.
Additionally, Trump argued that the 18 additional defendants included in the indictment should be cleared and brought up on separate charges.
“A Large, Complex, Detailed but Irrefutable REPORT on the Presidential Election Fraud which took place in Georgia is almost complete & will be presented by me at a major News Conference at 11:00 A.M. on Monday of next week in Bedminster, New Jersey. Based on the results of this CONCLUSIVE Report, all charges should be dropped against me & others – There will be a complete EXONERATION! They never went after those that Rigged the Election. They only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!” Trump posted on his Truth Social site in the wake of the charges.
19 people, including the former president and his attorneys Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman, were named in a 41-count indictment that was made public late Monday night.
The indictment accuses the defendants of illegally conspiring to run and participate in a “criminal enterprise” in the wake of Trump’s loss in Georgia in the 2020 presidential election.
After Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis presented her findings from a nearly year-long special grand jury inquiry, a grand jury returned an indictment against Trump on 13 counts, some of which involve accusations of racketeering.
