Some suggest that former President Donald Trump could face a fifth criminal case, this time in Arizona. The southwestern state was among those where Trump and allies of his after the last presidential election sought to secure some kind of change to the race’s results. The scheme to assemble slates of sham electors for Trump, which has already resulted in criminal charges in two states, was also seen in Arizona.

“The attorney general’s office has confirmed that an investigation into Trump, his allies and Arizona’s fake electors is underway, but gave no indication on when charges would be announced,” a Fox affiliate from Phoenix said. Arizona Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs and Arizona’s former Republican Governor Jan Brewer both indicated that they either anticipated an indictment or thought it’d be appropriate, though there’d likely be others who could possibly face charges besides just the former president. “I have been an advocate for holding folks involved in trying to overturn the will of the voters in the 2020 election accountable, and this is part of that,” Hobbs said.

“I don’t think we’re going to change directions until there’s accountability at the top level,” she added to the outlet.

Trump’s most recent criminal case came in Georgia, where he and a dozen and a half allies of his are now facing criminal charges for alleged involvement in a criminal conspiracy that targeted the 2020 election results from Georgia. The others charged alongside Trump in the state constitute a who’s who of Trump’s closest allies from after the 2020 presidential race concluded, ranging from Rudy Giuliani to Sidney Powell to Jenna Ellis. Mark Meadows, who was chief of staff in the Trump White House as Donald left office, was also charged. All 19 defendants, who also included an individual who’s done publicity work for Ye (formerly Kanye West) and individuals involved in an election machine breach in Coffee County, Georgia, are expected to turn themselves in for processing by next week’s end (Friday).
