the attempt to change the state's 2020 presidential election results.

former US President Donald Trump denounced accusations against him in Georgia of

trying to overturn the results of the state's presidential election as "false."


a candidate to represent the Republican Party in

the 2024 presidential election, wrote on his social media

platform Truth

"Sounds false to me!"

Why didn't they charge me two and a half years ago?

because they want to do this in the middle of my political campaign ".

Meanwhile :

Trump and 18 people charged with him over their practices during

the 2020 election have been assigned until 25 August to stand trial in Georgia

according to Fanny Willis' attorney general.

The prosecutor

who has been investigating the file since 2021

said she wanted the trial in this case to take place "within 6 months."

On Monday

a grand jury in Georgia agreed to file a 10-count indictment against

the former US president in the case of attempting to overturn

the outcome of the 2020 election in this state.

This will be

the fourth indictment filed against Trump this year

which could lead to :

the first televised trial of a former president in American history

involving charges commonly used to bring down gangsters.

Judicial analysts expect Atlanta District Attorney Fanny Willis to gather allegations against Trump and a number of co-conspirators in one case, under Georgia's RICO Act.

President Joe Biden's southern state

which won by less than 12,000 votes in 2020

poses the most serious threat to Trump's freedom as

he seeks to win the Republican nomination for re-election in 2024.

Even if elected

Trump in Georgia would not have any of the powers that presidents in

the federal system have to issue pardons or have prosecutors drop cases.
