Arizona Republicans spent two years blocking any state level criminal probe into Donald Trump’s attempt at overthrowing the 2020 election. But when Democrat Kris Mayes became the Arizona Attorney General earlier this year, she launched that criminal probe – which also included the Republicans’ followup attempt at overthrowing the 2022 midterms. Now it’s resulted in the first grand jury criminal indictments.

The Arizona grand jury indicted two Cochise County Supervisors today for having baselessly delayed the certification of the 2020 election results. These are lower level people, but these kinds of probes often tend to start at the bottom and work their way up.

The Arizona AG will presumably try to get these two indicted officials to flip on higher level officials, and ultimately work her way up to the biggest of fish, possibly including Donald Trump himself. That’s right, Trump could now be looking at getting criminally indicted in a fifth jurisdiction, meaning he’d have to stand criminal trial five different times. This would all serve to increase the odds that he’s convicted and sentenced to prison in at least one of them.
