Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on charges of inciting insurrection following the January 6th Capitol riot.
This is a historic moment, as no former president has ever been indicted before.
The House of Representatives impeached him on this charge, and the Senate acquitted him, but the Department of Justice has decided to proceed with criminal charges.
The indictment alleges that Trump encouraged his supporters to storm the Capitol in an effort to overturn the election results, and that he knew the violence was likely to occur.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and is expected to fight the charges vigorously.
If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison. This indictment marks a significant step in holding powerful individuals accountable for their actions, regardless of their position or influence.
It also raises questions about the balance between free speech and incitement to violence.
The case is likely to be closely watched and hotly debated in the coming months.
Ultimately, the outcome of this trial will have implications not only for Trump, but for the future of American democracy.
