The Trump Organization’s chief financial officer and Donald Trump’s namesake company were charged on Thursday as part of an investigation that has hovered over the former U.S. president for years. Prosecutors in Georgia’s biggest county have opened a criminal investigation into Trump’s attempts to influence the state’s results in the November 2020 presidential election that was won by Democrat Joe Biden. E. Jean Carroll, a former Elle magazine writer, sued Trump for defamation in 2019 after the president denied her allegation that he raped her in the 1990s in a New York department store and accused her of lying to drum up sales for a book. In August 2020, a state judge allowed the case to go forward, meaning Carroll’s lawyers could seek a DNA sample from Trump to match against a dress she said she wore at the store. Trump has been named as a defendant in lawsuits over the storming of the U.S. Capitol building by his supporters in a bid to disrupt the certification by Congress of Biden’s election to the White House.
