This week’s criminal charges against former President Trump aren’t the first he’s faced for attempting to overturn his 2020 election loss. But the indictment handed down this week in Fulton County, Georgia, also names 18 other defendants who allegedly helped in his efforts.
The indictment — the first count of which is a sweeping racketeering charge for the alleged conspiracy — also mentions 30 unindicted co-conspirators, and touches upon several elements of the scheme to overturn democracy, including the fake-electors plot, the attempted corruption of the U.S. Justice Department, and the alleged breach of voting equipment in Coffee County.
It’s yet another illustration of how wide-ranging the effort to undo Trump’s loss was, and many of the names should be familiar to those who have paid attention to the post-2020 election denial movement that spurred partisan investigations and voting machine breaches in other states.
The Washington Post took a look at the clues pointing to the potential identities of the Georgia unindicted co-conspirators who were tied to the Coffee County breach, offering other familiar names like Doug Logan, Stefanie Lambert, Phil Waldron, and others.
