Trump pleaded "not guilty" to trying to overturn the 2020 election

On Thursday, former US President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty in a federal court in Washington to charges of attempting to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Recall that a grand jury this week indicted Donald Trump on four crimes, including conspiracy against citizens’ rights, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official process, and obstruction of an official process.

Likewise, Trump and Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is also leading another investigation into the former president for misappropriation of classified documents, met in the courtroom as the indictment was formally read and the terms to be met were set.

The former president was revealed to have a sober expression on his face, his hands on the table and his attorneys, John Lauro and Todd Blanche, speaking in hushed tones.

Also in the audience were three of the police officers who defended the Capitol during the January 6, 2021 attack. Daniel Hodges and Aquilino Gonnell were wounded and Harry Dunn was pursued by violent protesters in the unprecedented attack on Congress for which Trump has been identified by a US Congressional Special Committee as chiefly responsible.

The court has set the date for the first hearing for August 28, which will not require Trump’s presence and which is typically used for scheduling to follow and adjust other procedures. This preliminary session comes just five days after the first Republican debate, which will be attended by various candidates for the party’s 2024 presidential nomination.
