Cheeley is among the 19 people, including former President Donald Trump who are accused of conspiring to change the election results. In all, they face a total of 41 charges.

Cheeley is an Alpharetta attorney who is accused of giving state legislators video clips that he said showed election workers handling ballots at State Farm Arena, claiming that the poll workers double and triple counted votes, WSB reported.
