Donald Trump and allies charged in Georgia for election meddling

Washington Correspondent

Donald Trump now has ten days to turn himself in – after a court in Georgia accused him and 18 others of attempting to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election there – in other words, “knowingly and willingly joining a conspiracy” to subvert the will of voters.

Mr Trump has described the charges as a witch hunt – claiming he would be completely exonerated.

But this is one case in which he cannot pardon himself – even if he’s elected president.
