Trump Indictment Grand Jury Once Again Convenes In DC

(TargetDailyNews.com) – The Washington, D.C. grand jury that originally indicted former President Donald Trump has once again convened amid speculation that it is now planning to indict co-conspirators in the same case that is accusing Trump of interfering in the 2020 presidential election.

Various news outlets reported on the grand jury convening at the E. Barrett Prettyman Courthouse during a morning break. The jury members left the courthouse at around 1:30 pm EST, according to NBC News.

The news comes after the second federal indictment of former President Trump on four charges related to interference in the 2020 presidential election. Trump is accused of conspiring to overturn the election results, as well as outright attempting to do so. The indictment also lists six unnamed co-conspirators, which many speculate will now be named following the grand jury’s recent meeting.

According to both of their lawyers, Trump confidants former New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani and John Eastman are likely co-conspirators one and two. The likely other co-conspirators listed in the indictment are attorneys Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell, as well as a former Trump administration Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark, according to NBC News.

On Monday, August 7th, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik met with federal prosecutors from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office for five hours. Tim Parlatore, Kerik’s attorney, said the meeting centered around Giuliani and his efforts to challenge the 2020 election results. Parlatore said further that the prosecutors had a “good faith basis” to believe that there was fraud on the part of Giuliani’s legal team.

Trump was arraigned on August 3rd in Washington, D.C. as part of the indictment, and has pleaded not guilty to all four charges.

The indictment is but the latest development in the former president’s now exacerbating legal struggles, with an April felony indictment from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg relating to the falsification of business records — normally a misdemeanor — as well as another from the Department of Justice accusing him of mishandling federally classified documents and unlawfully retaining them in his Mar-a-Lago, Florida residence.
