Former President Donald Trump has been indicted on four counts of alleged crimes, including conspiring to defraud the United States, obstructing an official proceeding, attempting to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiring against people's civil right to have their vote counted. The indictment outlines how Trump used private phone calls, memos, and meetings to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to help overturn the election. It also mentions that on January 6, when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, the White House counsel called Trump to ask him to withdraw any objections and allow the certification, but Trump refused. The most serious charge carries a maximum potential sentence of 20 years in prison.
