Mark Meadows and Rudy Giuliani Charged in New ‘Fake Elector’ Indictment in Arizona

Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows, and other prominent Trump loyalists have now been indicted by an Arizona grand jury on criminal charges.

The allegations claim that they attempted to impede the legal transition of power from then-President Trump to Joe Biden.

Eleven pro-Trump Arizona Republicans, who claimed to be the state’s legitimate electors in 2020, were charged along with seven Trump aides.

The ex-president is not facing charges, but is named as an unindicted co-conspirator.

The 18 defendants are being accused by prosecutors of formulating a plan to make untrue allegations of election fraud in order to coerce Arizona election officials into reversing Biden’s slim victory in the state.

The indictment, dated Tuesday but made public on Wednesday, outlines the lawsuits filed, purported correspondence sent to county and state officials, and the act of signing the “fake elector” forms in December 2020.

Each of the 11 electors who support Trump are confronted with nine charges, which encompass conspiracy, fraud, and forgery crimes.

The charging documents explicitly identify only the 11 alternate electors by name.

However, the descriptions provided within the documents indicate that the other defendants include Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City who now serves as Trump’s attorney; Meadows, the White House chief of staff during Trump’s presidency; Epshteyn, a longstanding adviser to Trump; Eastman, an attorney involved in Trump’s endeavors to invalidate the election results; Bobb, another attorney who previously worked for Trump and now serves the Republican National Committee; and Roman, the director responsible for overseeing Trump’s campaign operations on Election Day in 2020.

The Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes’s (D) office stated that the identities will be disclosed to the public once they have been officially notified.
