Georgia state prosecutors seemed to have filed charges against Donald Trump, which included accusations of a conspiracy to “forge documents.”
However, the charges were quickly retracted from public view soon after being published, as per Reuters.
A document detailing these accusations was temporarily accessible on the Fulton County court’s website before its removal.
The alleged charges also cited a violation of the state’s “RICO Act” and an additional charge pertaining to Trump supposedly pressuring a public officer to breach their “oath.”
John Kruzel took to Twitter to announce, “GEORGIA CHARGES TRUMP WITH VIOLATION OF STATE RICO ACT- FILING.”

This was promptly followed by another tweet saying, “Out of an abundance of caution, I’ve deleted a tweet about a possible Trump indictment that was based on a colleague’s reporting as we await further information.”

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz instantly noted the corruption of justice and called for a “motion to dismiss.”
This is OUTRAGEOUS government conduct and is a very legitimate basis to deem the entire Grand Jury process tainted & corrupted.

Kingsley Cortes had provided the court document that showed the ostensibly predetermined outcome.

“Democrat DAs are now indicting BEFORE grand juries vote,” she remarked. “Welcome to tyranny.”
Vivek Ramaswamy, a Republican candidate for president, blasted the leaked pre-determined indictment.
“Here we go again: another disastrous Trump indictment,” he said. “It’s downright pathetic that Fulton County publicly posted the indictment on its website even before the grand jury had finished convening.”
“Since the four prosecutions against Trump are using novel & untested legal theories, it’s fair game for him to do the same in defense: immediately file a motion to dismiss for a constitutional due process violation for publicly issuing an indictment before the grand jury had actually signed one,” he continued.
“He should make a strong argument on these grounds & it would send a powerful message to the ever-expansive prosecutorial police state.”
“As someone who’s running for President against Trump, I’d volunteer to write the amicus brief to the court myself: prosecutors should not be deciding U.S. presidential elections, and if they’re so overzealous that they commit constitutional violations, then the cases should be thrown out & they should be held accountable,” he added.
