The indictment by an Atlanta-area grand jury is the fourth to implicate the former president. It follows a 2½-year investigation by Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis (D) that also resulted in charges against Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and several of Trump’s advisers. The grand jury issued arrest warrants for those charged, and they have until noon on Aug. 25 to voluntarily surrender, Willis said.” Washington Post
