"A criminal enterprise": Trump and allies indicted in Georgia

Last night an Atlanta grand jury indicted former president Trump and 18 of his allies in the probe into efforts to flip Georgia's 2020 election results. Fulton County DA Fani Willis told reporters: "The indictment alleges that rather than abide by Georgia's legal process for election challenges, the defendants engaged in a criminal racketeering enterprise in order to overturn Georgia's presidential election result."

The big picture: This is the fourth indictment against Trump since April. Among those also charged are lawyers Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman and former white house chief of staff Mark Meadows.
