Washington D.C. – Following news that former President Donald Trump has been indicted by a Fulton County, GA, grand jury, on charges related to the effort to overturn the 2020 election, People For the American Way President Svante Myrick released the following statement:

“Georgia was a critical part of the plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election, and today Fulton County prosecutor Fani Willis is seeking justice for the shameless attempt to subvert the will of the state’s voters. This indictment of Donald Trump is a central piece of the pursuit of justice. The indictment is not a surprise; everyone remembers the phone call Trump made to Georgia’s secretary of state, asking him to ‘find’ enough votes to declare Trump the winner. But like the other criminal indictments of Trump, it is deeply disturbing. Now the justice system needs to do its work to ensure he is held accountable for any crimes he committed, and if he is guilty, he can never be allowed anywhere near the levers of power again.”
