@coppercourier An Arizona grand jury has indicted former President Donald Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and 16 others for their roles in an attempt to overturn Trump’s loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election. The indictment released Wednesday names 11 Republicans who submitted a document to Congress falsely declaring that Trump won Arizona in 2020. They include the former state party chair, a 2022 U.S. Senate candidate, and two sitting state lawmakers, who are charged with nine counts each of conspiracy, fraud, and forgery. The identities of seven other defendants, including Giuliani and Meadows, were not immediately released because they had not yet been served with the documents. They were readily identifiable based on descriptions of the defendants, however. Trump himself was not charged but was referred to as an unindicted co-conspirator. With the indictments, Arizona becomes the fourth state where allies of the former president have been charged with using false or unproven claims about voter fraud related to the election. Heading into a likely November rematch with Biden, Trump continues to spread lies about the last election that are echoed by many of his supporters. “I will not allow American democracy to be undermined,” Democratic state Attorney General Kris Mayes said in a video released by her office. “It’s too important.” 📝 : Associated Press 📹 : @azagmayes . . . #azpolitics #azpol #arizonanews #aznews #arizona #arizonastate #az #everythingarizona #azleg #everythingarizona #rudygiuliani #markmeadows #accountability ♬ original sound – Copper Courier
