Trump helped Kenneth Chesebro among three charged in Wisconsin over 2020 election conspiracy

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin’s attorney general filed suit Tuesday against an aide and two lawyers who advised Donald Trump during a meeting of Republicans who claimed to be the state’s presidential electors in 2020, even though Trump lost the state.

These charges are the first in Wisconsin related to an assembly election. Prosecutors separately charged Republicans involved in similar efforts in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Georgia.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul (D) charged Trump campaign aide Michael Roman and attorneys Kenneth Chesebro and James Troupis with one count of forgery each, according to online court records. Copies of the criminal complaints were not immediately available.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
