Trump set to face forgery charge from Georgia prosecutors – report

US

Georgia state prosecutors are set to bring charges including conspiracy to commit forgery against Donald Trump, Reuters reports.

The charges appeared on a document posted to the Fulton County court website on Monday – but it was later taken down.

Other charges listed were violation of the state’s RICO act, and solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer.

The document was dated 14 August and labelled the case as “open”.

It’s unclear why it was removed from the court’s website, and a spokesperson for the district attorney said it was “inaccurate” that charges had been filed.

“Beyond that we cannot comment,” they added.

Trump is already defending several other cases, just a year before he hopes to reclaim the presidency.

The most serious concern allegations he plotted to overturn his 2020 election loss, laying the ground for the infamous storming of the US Capitol.

He denies the claims and says they are politically motivated.

Trump’s other legal troubles include allegations he kept national security documents at his Florida home when he left office.

The ex-president has again pleaded not guilty.
