More Indictments for ex-President Trump

The story of a former New Yorker and US president continues … Long-time political journalist Susan Glasser, now at The New Yorker, sums up the state of Georgia’s charges — “the Georgia indictment cites the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, law against Trump, essentially defining him and his gang of alleged conspirators as an actual criminal gang. Among the acts they allegedly committed are false statements and writings, impersonating a public officer, forgery, filing false documents, influencing witnesses, computer theft, computer trespass, computer invasion of privacy, conspiracy to defraud the state, acts involving theft, and perjury. Trump, who learned much of his aggressive legal playbook from the late celebrity Mob lawyer Roy Cohn, has been compared many times throughout the years to a mobster. But this is the first time anyone has done so in a court of law.”
