Arizona grand jury indicts Trump allies for 2020 election interference

Eighteen allies of former President Donald Trump were indicted by an Arizona grand jury for alleged election interference in the 2020 presidential election.

Of the 18 total, 11 Republicans were named, while seven names were redacted. However, the document makes some names clear by describing their roles. This includes former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani, and Trump campaign operative Mike Roman.

Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes announced the indictment on Wednesday.

“As I have stated before, and we’ll say here again today, I will not allow American democracy to be undermined. It’s too important,” she said. “The investigators and attorneys assigned to this case took the necessary time to thoroughly piece together the details of the events that began nearly four years ago. They follow the facts where they lead, and I’m very proud of the work they’ve done to date.”


The indictment also mentions an “unindicted co-conspirator” who is clearly Trump. “In Arizona, and the United States, the people elected Joseph Biden as President on November 3, 2020,” it reads. “Unwilling to accept this fact, 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.”
