On Monday, a Georgia grand jury indicted Trump and 18 allies alleging they worked to try and overturn the results of the 2020 election.
A day later, Trump said he had plans to soon release a report exonerating himself.
His legal advisers, however, are telling him to cancel the event, saying it could put him in more legal trouble, according to ABC News.

Days after former President Donald Trump said he’d release a detailed report uncovering election fraud in Georgia that allegedly took place in the 2020 election, his legal team is pressing him to scrap the plan, according to a report from ABC News.

On Monday, a Georgia grand jury indicted Trump and 18 of his allies, alleging they conspired to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Trump has since denied the allegations, calling them politically motivated. 

A day after being indicted, Trump announced on Truth Social that he has plans to reveal a new report at a press conference next week in Bedminster, New Jersey, that would completely exonerate him from his litany of charges.

“A Large, Complex, Detailed but Irrefutable REPORT on the Presidential Election Fraud which took place in Georgia is almost complete & will be presented by me at a major News Conference at 11:00 A.M. on Monday of next week in Bedminster, New Jersey,” Trump wrote. “Based on the results of this CONCLUSIVE Report, all charges should be dropped against me & others — There will be a complete EXONERATION! They never went after those that Rigged the Election. They only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!”

But despite Trump’s post, the plans may not actually occur, especially after ABC News reported that his legal advisers have pressed him behind the scenes to cancel the event due to the risk of him possibly digging a deeper hole for himself to get out of in his Georgia elections case.

In his newfound Georgia case, state prosecutors have accused Trump of committing state RICO law violations, making false statements to state officials, filing false documents, soliciting a state officer to violate their oath of office, and more.

Trump’s indictment in Georgia is the fourth time he’s been indicted — both in state and federal court — over the past year over allegations he paid off an adult film star, mishandled classified documents, and tried to overturn the 2020 election. In all, he’s been charged with 91 total felonies. He’s also facing charges in New York regarding allegations he misled tax authorities and banks over the value of his assets in order to receive tax benefits and loans.

Whether or not Trump releases his report, he’s still required to surrender himself to Georgia authorities by August 25 to avoid getting a warrant for his arrest, which District Attorney Fani Willis said she has at the ready.
