Trump files motion to have Georgia election-related indictment tossed

September 13, 2023

Former President Donald Trump might be facing multiple federal and state indictments, but that doesn't mean he and his robust legal team aren't fighting tooth-and-nail against them.

According to Fox News, Trump recently filed a motion to have his latest indictment out of Georgia quashed. He and 18 others were indicted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for their alleged roles in attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the Peach State.

Fox noted:

Trump attorney Steven Sadow filed two motions Tuesday that adopted motions from co-defendants Rudy Giuliani, a former Trump attorney, and Ray Stallings Smith III to toss Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ indictment.

In that particular indictment, Trump faces a total of 13 charges, including, "one count of violation of the Georgia RICO Act, three counts of criminal solicitation, six counts of criminal conspiracy, one count of filing false documents and two counts of making false statements."

Legal scholars, many of whom have written off previous indictments as "flimsy" cases, have said that the Georgia indictment is Trump's tallest legal hurdle, for the time being.

For his part, Trump entered a "not guilty" plea for all 13 charges, and every other charge brought against him in the two federal indictments and the first indictment out of New York prosecutor Alvin Bragg's office.

The former president has long-contended that the indictments are nothing more than "election interference" and a "weaponization" of the justice system in an attempt to hamstring his 2024 presidential campaign.

"It is election interference," Trump told Fox News Digital in August. "We did nothing wrong at all. And we have every right, every single right, to challenge an election that we think is dishonest that we think is very dishonest."

Special Counsel Jack Smith's Jan. 6-related indictment has been scheduled for March 4, 2024, a day before "Super Tuesday," one of the most important primary voting days of the entire cycle.

The former president and his lawyers have filed a number of motions and requests in an attempt to have the charges dropped or judges removed from various cases, as Trump has claimed that he's unlikely to receive a fair trial in many of them.

As far as hurting his 2024 presidential ambitions, if that's the ultimate goal -- to put it bluntly, it hasn't worked. In contrast, it has gloriously backfired.

Trump has raised mountains of campaign cash and maintained a commanding lead in virtually all state and national polls, and remains the clear frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.

The former president even once joked that he liked the idea of more indictments, as they tend to give him a major boost in all areas.
