Here are some of the stories we are working on now
- Reaction: What are Atlantans, some of whom could be jurors, saying about the indictment? And what questions do they have?
- What’s in the indictment? Our reporters are taking a deeper look to help explain what the charges mean. We will also provide context from our other reporting on this story. Read the 97-page indictment here.
- Next steps: We are trying to learn more about the booking process, where the defendants will turn themselves in, and when. Before the indictment, Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat said Trump, were he indicted, would likely be booked and photographed just like any other accused criminal.
AJC journalists have covered the case since the initial election votes were counted in November 2020. The indictments are the result of a 2 ½-year criminal investigation that was launched soon after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis took office.
Willis announced she was investigating election interference in February 2021, weeks after a recording leaked of a phone call Trump placed to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
