A website for Georgia's Fulton County on Monday briefly listed what appeared to be criminal charges against Donald Trump, with the county's district attorney expected to indict the former president as soon as Tuesday. 

Reuters reported on a list of several criminal charges to be brought against Trump including ones on state racketeering, conspiracy to commit false statements and solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer. However, prosecutors say Trump had not been indicted in the probe of the 2020 presidential election.

A Fulton County grand jury began hearing from witnesses at about noon Monday.

The wire service also published a copy of the document listing the charges before it was removed from the site. 

A spokesperson for county District Attorney Fani Willis said the report of charges being filed was “inaccurate” but declined further comment, according to the Associated Press
