Former US President Donald Trump has been criminally charged over his alleged efforts to overturn his 2020 election defeat.

He is accused of four counts, including conspiracy to defraud the US, tampering with a witness and conspiracy against the rights of citizens.

The indictment caps an inquiry into events surrounding the January 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol.

Mr Trump, 77, who is running for president again, denies wrongdoing.

He is already charged in two other cases: with mishandling classified files, and falsifying business records to cover up a hush-money payment to a porn star.

The election investigation has focused on Mr Trump’s actions in the two-month period between his loss and the riot in Washington DC, where his supporters stormed Congress as lawmakers certified Democratic President Joe Biden’s victory.

The man leading the inquiry, US justice department-appointed special counsel Jack Smith, said on Tuesday evening: “The attack on our nation’s capital on January 6, 2021 was an unprecedented assault on the seat of American democracy.

“As described in the indictment it was fuelled by lies.”

Mr Smith wrapped up his brief statement by pledging to seek “a speedy trial”, while emphasising that the former president “must be assumed innocent until proven guilty”.

Mr Trump is due to appear in court on Thursday in Washington DC.

The 45-page indictment lists six unnamed co-conspirators: four lawyers, a justice department official and a political consultant.

The court document accuses Mr Trump of a “conspiracy to impair, obstruct, and defeat the federal government function through dishonesty, fraud and deceit”.

  1. This is the kind of crap you see in Banana Republics. Shame on the democrats. Destroying this once great nation.

  2. @Just saying…when you said, “this once great nation,” I immediately thought that modesty prevented you from posting the long list of great deeds of the US, over the years past.

    Can you tease us with just a snippet of this list? Pretty please with sugar on top?

  3. @Nooks I only need 11,000 votes’: Trump begs GA leaders to ‘find’ votes. Begged, like a d@g

  4. Look at the pic of trump, turn his head upside down, and look at his neck, that’s where stormy daniels hide the money.
