Former President Trump may have some company after he was indicted Tuesday over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. 

The indictment in the special counsel’s investigation says Trump had six co-conspirators who helped him cling to power. 

While the indictment does not identify the co-conspirators, The New York Times say they appear to be Rudolph Giuliani, an attorney who oversaw Trump’s claims that the election was stolen; John Eastman, a law professor who laid out the legal basis for overturning the election; Sidney Powell, an often mocked lawyer who encouraged Trump to seize voting machines using the military; Jeffrey Clark, a Justice Department official at the time; and Kenneth Chesebro and James Troupis, lawyers who allegedly schemed to create fake electors. 

According to the indictment, Trump “enlisted co-conspirators to assist him in his criminal efforts.”

The co-conspirators have not yet been charged with a crime, but legal experts say they could find themselves indicted.
