Former president Donald Trump was indicted in Georgia on Monday, along with 18 other people, in connection with their efforts to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the state during the 2020 presidential election. A total of 41 charges were brought against the 19 defendants, with Trump facing 13 counts.

Violation of the Georgia RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act

The most sweeping count Trump faces in the indictment is the state version of a federal anti-racketeering statute that allows prosecutors to charge a number of people they believe are involved in a complex scheme to commit crimes. In effect, it lets prosecutors combine a number of different, seemingly disconnected crimes if they believe these are committed as part of one overall enterprise.
