    As a decision in Georgia’s investigation into Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the 2020 election there, the public might’ve inadvertently gotten a preview of potential charges against him.

    Reuters reported that a document was posted on Fulton County’s court website Monday, detailing numerous felony counts against the former president. The document, which was filed on August 14, listed the case of The State of Georgia v. Donald John Trump as being “open.”

    The charges named ranged from violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, also known as RICO, conspiracy to commit forgery, making false statements among other counts. The document was later removed from the site altogether following the Reuters report.

    Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney, is expected to return several indictments in her 2020 election inquiry as soon as Tuesday in what would be Trump’s fourth criminal indictment. In response to the document’s posting, Willis’ office confirmed that no charges have officially been filed in the matter as of Monday. An explanation for the inadvertent posting has not been given.

    It may soon be clear whether the reported charges ultimately line up with the ones Willis intends to seek. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the grand jury in the case appears to be moving faster than expected in completing their work. Two witnesses that were scheduled to testify before the panel on Tuesday, former lieutenant governor Geoff Duncan and journalist George Chidi, are now slated to testify Monday instead.
