Georgia Launches Investigation Into Trump Phone Call
GEORGIA SECRETARY OF STATE'S OFFICE LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION INTO TRUMP'S PHONE CALL
(CNN) – The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has launched an investigation into former president Trump’s attempts to overturn the state’s election results.
That investigation includes questions about Trump’s now infamous phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2nd.
A recording of the stunning one-hour call was made public.
Trump is heard urging Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn the state’s election results after he lost to then-president-elect Joe Biden.
Raffensperger, who is a Republican adamantly defended the results and the integrity of Georgia’s voting system.
Trump repeatedly touted baseless claims of election fraud and lambasted Raffensperger for refusing to falsely say Trump won the election in Georgia.
The Fulton County District Attorney’s office is also looking into the call and is expected to announce if criminal charges will be filed against Trump this month.
