Trump Named As Unindicted Co-Conspirator In Michigan Fake Electors Case

On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Michigan attorney general’s office investigation into interference in the 2020 election. Charges have already been brought in Michigan against 15 Republicans who acted as fake electors for Trump after President Biden defeated him in the state in 2020.  It is unclear whether Trump or any of his former aides or advisers face legal jeopardy in Michigan, the New York Times reports.  During pretrial hearings in the case this week, a special agent for the attorney general’s office said the investigation was still open. He named a number of people he said had taken part in the conspiracy but have not been indicted, including Trump; Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff, and Rudolph W. Giuliani, Trump’s former personal lawyer.

Georgia has brought charges against Trump, Meadows and Giuliani, among others. Nevada, like Michigan, has focused thus far on Republicans there who acted as fake electors, charging all of them. Charges are expected soon in Arizona, and Wisconsin is conducting an investigation. Trump has also been charged in two federal cases brought by Jack Smith, the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department, including one that focuses on election interference in 2020. Trump’s biggest legal challenge at the moment, though, is the criminal trial now in progress in Manhattan, where he faces charges related to hush money payments made to a porn star, Stormy Daniels.
