(TargetLiberty.org) – Former President Donald Trump’s campaign does appear to be losing momentum as the legal cases against him are increasing. On Monday night, Trump was indicted for a fourth time by Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney who was previously investigating his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential elections in Georgia.
In the past year, Trump was indicted three times, with two of the indictments being on a federal level. There are some Republican operatives who have pointed out that the legal cases against Trump could be considered concerning, however many others have pointed out that so far the controversies surrounding Trump had not changed his standing in the presidential race.
Brian Seitchik, who had previously worked for Trump’s campaign and is a GOP strategist, pointed out that so far the indictments and their content have not in any way affected Trump’s polling numbers. He pointed out however that it is possible that some of Trump’s voters will move away as a result of the indictment and that if he loses New Hampshire or Iowa then his numbers across the country are going to be quickly affected.
All three of the cases that Trump has been indicted have been completely separate. His first indictment from a court in New York is for falsifying business documents and is connected to a hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The first federal indictment relates to his alleged mishandling of classified documents while the second one is more concerned with his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, and his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.
His fourth indictment which was unveiled this Monday relates to his attempts to overturn the state elections in Georgia. The probe into his efforts was overseen by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and was launched after Trump’s infamous phone call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which he urged him to find the necessary votes to overturn the presidential election.
