Hours before the grand jury finished its investigation, the clerk’s office for the Fulton County, Georgia, court system reportedly unintentionally posted a “sample working document” pertaining to the indictment of former President Trump.

Reuters was the source who discovered and distributed the docket page and reported that Trump had been charged.

But the accusations made against Trump on Monday night matched exactly what the publication had initially reported.

In a statement, the clerk’s office admitted that “in anticipation of issues that arise with entering a potentially large indictment.” and posted a “sample working document related to the former United States President, Donald Trump.”

“Unfortunately, the sample working document led to the docketing of what appeared to be an indictment, but which was, in fact, only a fictitious docket sheet,” the statement continued.

“Because the media has access to documents before they are published, and while it may have appeared that something official had occurred because the document bore a case number and filing date, it did not include a signed ‘true’ or ‘no’ bill nor an official stamp with Clerk Alexander’s name, thereby making the document unofficial and a test sample only.” it added.

“This was not a simple administrative mistake. A proposed indictment should only be in the hands of the District Attorney’s Office, yet it somehow made its way to the clerk’s office and was assigned a case number and a judge before the grand jury even deliberated. This is emblematic of the pervasive and glaring constitutional violations which have plagued this case from its very inception.” Trump’s lawyers claimed.
