The Fulton County District Attorney’s charges against former President Donald Trump are likely to stick – and survive any of the likely coming motions to dismiss them – a legal expert and scholar of state and federal racketeering (RICO) laws tells Law&Crime.

Trump is charged along with 18 additional co-defendants in a sprawling, 98-page, 41-count criminal grand jury indictment secured by Fulton County DA Fani Willis (D) on Aug. 14. The 45th president personally faces 13 counts over his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

The counts include alleged, forgery, false statements, conspiracy to influence an election, perjury, influencing witnesses, and charges under the Peach State’s homegrown RICO Act over a series of ultimately failed efforts by the ex-president, his lawyers, and other GOP figures, to deny President Joe Biden Georgia’s 16 electoral votes.
