Georgia Prosecutors Seek Jail Time for Trump

Fulton county prosecutors have signaled they want prison sentences in the Georgia criminal case against Donald Trump and his top allies, Hugo Lowell reports for The Guardian. Trump, his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and his former election lawyer Rudy Giuliani face allegations that they violated the racketeering statute as part of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to exchanges in private emails. Prosecutors are not presently expected to offer plea agreements. Trump and 18 co-defendants in August originally pleaded not guilty to charges that they violated Georgia’s state racketeering statute as they sought to overturn the 2020 election. In the following weeks, four of the 18 negotiated plea deals and extricated themselves from the case.
