Based on analysis, Trump appears to be an unindicted co-conspirator.

Quote:
Several former and current key aides to former President Donald Trump appear to be among those charged by the Arizona State Attorney General over their alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election. They include Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows and former Trump attorney John Eastman -- as well Boris Epshteyn, who remains one of Trump's closest advisers and a current member of his 2024 campaign team.

Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes also announced charges against 11 alleged fake electors, for their alleged role in their alleged efforts to subvert Joe Biden's 2020 victory in the state.

The charges include fraud, forgery, and conspiracy.

“Unindicted Coconspirator 1” in the indictment appears to be Trump as the language of the document says they were involved in a scheme to keep him and former Vice President Mike Pence “in office against the will of Arizona’s voters.”

In the indictment, another individual whose name is currently redacted, but appears to be Giuliani is described as “An attorney for Unindicted Coconspirator 1 who was often identified as {{the Mayor."

Trump’s former Chief of Staff Meadows appears to be one of the individuals whose name is redacted. That individual “was Unindicted Coconspirator 1's Chief of Staff in 2020,” the indictment reads, which seems to match Meadows’ job at the time.

Mayes said in a release all the names would be unredacted when all defendants have been served.

In filing the indictment, Arizona becomes the fourth state to file criminal charges against the so-called "fake electors" who allegedly announced they were ready to pledge electoral votes to Donald Trump in their respective states during the 2020 election, despite Joe Biden winning those states.

The 11 current named defendants in the indictment whose names are visible on the court document are Kelli Ward, Tyler Bower, Nancy Cottle, Jacob Hoffman, Anthony Kern, James Lamon, Robert Montgomery, Samuel Moorhead, Lorraine Pellegrino, Gregory Safsten and Michael Ward.

According to the indictment, 11 Republicans met in Arizona in December 2020, including then-Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward, two Republican lawmakers, and a top official with the Republican National Committee, and signed documents that falsely claimed they were Arizona's rightful electors.
