After years of seeming to avoid accountability for a variety of misdeeds, it seems increasingly likely that Trump will soon face charges, possibly in several casesv. In addition to Willis’ case in Georgia, Trump is also being investigated by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for possible crimes related to his payment of “hush money” to Stormy Daniels to cover up an alleged affair with the adult actress. Trump is also being investigated federally for taking classified and sensitive documents when he left office and refusing to return them for over a year until his Mar-a-Lago resort was raided by federal agents. Trump is also being investigated for causing the January 6 Capitol Hill insurrection; the January 6 committee recommended that the US Attorney General charge trump as the instigator of the violent riot.
It remains to be seen whether Trump will ultimately be charged with his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Georgia. Republicans seem intent to rally around the former president and protect him, even if they have to change the law to do so. On the other hand, this investigation and others may be too far down the road to be turned back. Either way, both critics and supporters of the former president will be watching intensely to see what happens in Georgia.
