Trump announced the cancellation of a press conference that was to be held on Monday, in which he was going to present a “big, complex, detailed, but irrefutable” report on “the presidential electoral fraud that took place in Georgia.” The former president ended up canceling it because his lawyers have to dedicate themselves to “fighting to dismiss the accusation” and they prefer to present said report officially during the process against him, he explained.

On the other hand, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office established on Thursday that it is investigating the threats suffered by the members of the grand jury accused of Trump and the publication, through social networks, of their personal data.

Among those charged with the former president are his former personal lawyer and former New York mayor, Rudy Giuliani, and his former chief of staff Mark Meadows.

This is Trump’s fourth criminal indictment. Two weeks ago he was indicted by a Washington DC grand jury on four charges for allegedly trying to reverse the result of the 2020 US elections, which culminated in the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

In addition, in New York Trump has been charged with 34 charges for alleged payments to the porn actress Stormy Daniels, with whom he had an affair in the past, to buy his silence during the 2016 election campaign.
