“Arizona Charges Giuliani and Other Trump Allies in Election Interference Case”

As a follow-up to my previous post on this development, the N.Y. Times is now reporting that Giuliani and Mark Meadows are among those indicted:

“They were among a number of defendants whose names were redacted from the indictment, though it was clear from the context and the descriptions who they were.

“Also indicted were Boris Epshteyn, who remains one of Mr. Trump’s most senior lawyers; Mike Roman, a Trump campaign operative in 2020, and John Eastman, an architect of the fake electors plan. Two other lawyers who advised Mr. Trump and his 2020 campaign were also indicted, Jenna Ellis and Christina Bobb.”

UPDATE: The Washington Post also identifies the same individuals whose names were redacted in the indictment. The Post story also contains extensive details behind the electors scheme:

“Mayes’s case had been squarely focused on local conservatives up until late last year. Then,Arizona prosecutors and investigators met in December with Kenneth Chesebro, an attorney and an architect of the elector strategy who pleaded guilty in Georgia in October to a single felony count of participating in a conspiracy to file false documents. Chesebro provided Mayes’s team with records — some that had been previously unseen — that revealed more information about those involved in the Arizona effort, according to two people familiar with the investigation who requested anonymity to talk about the sensitive conversations. After that, they said the Arizona investigation widened.”
