ATLANTA – Former President Donald Trump and his associates were indicted by a Fulton County grand jury today in connection with the brazen attempt to overthrow the 2020 election.
The indictments followed an in-depth investigation by a Fulton County special grand jury. Common Cause Georgia previously called for the release of the grand jury’s report, as requested by the 26 ordinary citizens who sat on the panel, and echo our call for transparency today.
Statement from Aunna Dennis, Common Cause Georgia Executive Director
“Today’s indictment is a necessary step to hold former President Donald Trump and his associates accountable for the calculated and immoral attempt to reject the will of Georgia voters in the 2020 election.
We know today’s indictment is just the beginning of what might be a long process in the courts, and that an indictment is not a conviction.
Today’s indictment of Trump and his co-conspirators highlights Georgia voters’ steadfast insistence that anyone who attempts to steal our most sacred of rights must be held accountable.
The people of Georgia can now take a moment to reflect on what type of government we want moving forward.
Do we want a democracy in the hands of a wealthy few, or in the hands of the people?
Common Cause Georgia is committed to ensuring it is always we, the people, in charge as we move toward a government that is accountable to the voters.”
