NOW: Massive Election Interference Indictment

( – In a massive indictment late yesterday, an Arizona grand jury has chargеd Donald Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Mеadows, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and numerous others in an alleged scheme to overturn the 2020 election results.

State Attorney General Kris Mayes announced the indictment, where eleven Arizona Rеpublicans, including former state GOP Chairwoman Kelli Ward and state Senators Jacob Hoffman and Anthony Kern, with felony charges related to the “fake electors” plot are listed.

However, seven others remain unnamed as they have not been served yet.

Media outlets identified the unnamed individuals, which include Meadows, Giuliani, and Trump campaign associates Jenna Еllis, John Eastman, Christina Bobb, Boris Epshteyn, and Michael Roman. Charges include fraud, forgery, and conspiracy.

The document labels Trump as “Unindicted Coconspirator 1.” It stated, “Defendants and unindicted coconspirators schemed to prevent the lawful transfer of the presidency to keep Unindicted Coconspirator 1 in office against the will of Arizona’s voters.”

Meadows, Giuliani, Ellis, Еastman, and Roman had previously been charged in Georgia by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis over their alleged roles in an effort to overturn the Peach State’s 2020 election results, while Trump faces 13 felony counts in the Georgia case.

Furthermore, others indicted include Turning Points Action COO Tyler Bowyer, former Arizona GOP Executive Director Greg Safsten, and energy executive James Lamon, among others, for falsely claiming Trump won Arizona.

Investigations initially targeted local Republicans until attorney Kenneth Chesebro, allegedly the mastermind, shared new evidence, leading to a broader probe.

While Chesebro was not charged in Arizona but pleaded not guilty to one felony count of participating in filing false documents in Georgia, this marks the fourth state-level indictment of Trump allies for election meddling.

Additionally, Nevada AG Aaron Ford indicted six Republicans for submitting false certificates to Congress, and Michigan is pursuing charges against 16 pro-Trump electors. All are being handled by Democratic attorneys general or district attorneys.

Mayes emphasized that a state grand jury made up of everyday Arizonans “has now handed down felony indictments for all 11 Republican electors as well as several others connected to this scheme.”

He added, “These are serious indictments, but this is the first hurdle the state must pass in our constitutional criminal justice system. “We intend to prove these crimes were committed beyond a reasonable doubt.”
