A state grand jury in Arizona on Wednesday indicted so-called "fake electors" who backed then-President Donald Trump in 2020, as well as key Trump aides, after a sprawling investigation into the alleged efforts to overturn Joe Biden's win in the presidential election in the state.

"Each of the 11 Arizona fake electors " Tyler Bowyer, Nancy Cottle, Jake Hoffman, Anthony Kern, Jim Lamon, Robert Montgomery, Samuel Moorhead, Loraine Pellegrino, Greg Safsten, Kelli Ward and Michael Ward " face nine felony counts for conspiracy, fraudulent schemes and artifices and forgery."


"An Arizona grand jury has indicted 18 allies of Donald Trump for their efforts to subvert the 2020 election " including former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Boris Epshteyn.

The indictment, which includes felony counts of conspiracy, fraud and forgery, also describes Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator."

"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," the 58-page indictment reads.

The names of seven of the defendants, including Meadows, Giuliani and Epshteyn, are redacted, but the document makes clear who they are by describing their roles. Others include attorneys John Eastman, Jenna Ellis and Christina Bobb, as well as Trump 2020 campaign operative Mike Roman.

Ken Chesebro, an attorney who helped devise Trump's post-election strategy, is described as "unindicted coconspirator 4."

The worst thing Donald Trump has ever done is win POTUS. The worst thing that has happened to the GOP is Donald Trump.

When Obama made fun of Trump at the correspondence dinner, it's like Obama knew what was going to happen.

And the ironic thing is that some of the forced birth babies to be born under Arizona's 1864 anti-abortion law will sit on the juries for these trials!

god bless swift justice!

Dotard knows how to pick'em.

Christina Bobb, a former Trump attorney and far-right television presenter who was a fervent supporter of efforts to overturn the 2020 election, is now the Republican National Committee's senior counsel for "election integrity."

Somebody bang on Giuliani's van door and tell him he has been indicted again.

And, wonder of wonders, I still don't see Gini Thomas' name ~ the wife of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice who worked hand-in-hand with John Eastman to pull off this scam.

"Ken Chesebro, an attorney who helped devise Trump's post-election strategy..."

Which, for the record, was BREAK THE LAW.

"... is described as "unindicted coconspirator 4.""

Think about that for a moment, would you? Concoct the ruse, convince the rubes, then turn state's evidence.

Eff him. Cheese-Bro should fry. He's the LAST guy who should get a deal.

Well...second last.

"I still don't see Gini Thomas' name"

Here's why (my two cents...)

Pretend she's Gini Smith. All her stupid calls, all her dumb invocations...not illegal.

Sure it reflects poorly on Clarence, but let's be serious: CT doesn't GAF what reflects, as long as he can still take the mega-bribes.

Wisconsin's impotent AG is going to let these scumbags try to steal another election.

I'm sure you're right about the letter writing, phone calls, texts, public comments, etc., none of which were technically illegal, I suppose. But I was thinking about John Eastman's boast about having a "connection" to the U.S. Supreme Court which turned out to be Gini Thomas.

As yet, there's no explanation of the role she played, or intended to play. But Eastman's boast would indicate he was expecting her to intervene with her husband on behalf of the fake electors scheme at some point along the way.

I suppose that could come up when Eastman is looking for somebody to throw under the bus at his own co-conspirator trial. I just find her too despicable for words and hope she gets dragged into this conspiracy, kicking and screaming all the way.

Same here. But about average for the deranged MAGAt.

She's the Original Karen.

Nobody is willing to dime out Gibber Thomas because those that have damaging info still see Clearance Thomas him as an ace in the hole.
