International News: Former U.S. President Donald Trump indicted in bid to overturn 2020 election

Posted: Tuesday, August 1, 2023. 5:05 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, prosecutors in the United States charged Former U.S. President, Donald Trump with conspiring to seize a second term after losing the 2020 election.

Investigators alleged abuses that threatened the foundations of American democracy.

Politico reports that the former U.S. President was charged with four felony counts, including conspiracy to defraud the United States and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding.

“Despite having lost, the Defendant was determined to remain in power,” the indictment said.

“So for more than two months following election day on November 3, 2020, the Defendant spread lies that there had been outcome-determinative fraud in the election and that he had actually won. These claims were false, and the Defendant knew that they were false,” it added.

In addition, 6 co-conspirators were also identified.

The former U.S. President is accused of amplifying “knowingly false” claims about election fraud and pressuring state legislators to falsely assert that the election outcome was in doubt.
