Former President Donald Trump was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury on four counts related to the efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, according to court documents (article available here).

The four-count, 45-page indictment accuses the former president of three distinct conspiracies, charging that he conspired to defraud the U.S., conspired to obstruct an official proceeding and conspired against people’s rights.

The indictment comes nearly two months after the former president and his longtime valet were indicted for allegedly mishandling classified documents and scheming to prevent government officials from retrieving them.
