(FixThisNation.com) – Throughout the Fulton County, Georgia indictment of former President Donald Trump and 18 others related to their attempts to overturn the state election results in 2020 are references to Ruby Freeman.

Freeman was a poll worker whom Trump and his former attorney Rudy Giuliani had explicitly accused of having mishandled ballots in the election. This led the woman and her daughter Shaye Moss to face a lot of attacks and threats.

Freeman is mentioned in the indictment around 40 times, which is something that former Georgia District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming has pointed out, noting that this is a reflection of the actual victims that the district attorney is focused on protecting, along with all the state voters whose will Trump attempted to undermine.

Keyes Fleming added that the indictment is an attempt to recognize her efforts and service to her county.

When speaking with investigators in the House committee tasked with looking into the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, the woman recalled how she, her daughter, and another former election worker had faced a lot of harassment following the allegations about their mishandling of the ballots.

Freeman asked during her deposition if people knew what it was like to be targeted by the country’s president who is supposedly a representative of every single American. The committee’s hearing was aired, making the content of her deposition public.

Giuliani, who is an ally of Trump, has previously claimed that there was video evidence of the woman and her daughter hiding ballots in a suitcase that was right under the table.
