Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has said that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis might end up launching an investigation into the phone call he had with President Trump.
It’s being alleged that Trump pressured Raffensperger to find additional votes that would enable the president to change the outcome of the presidential election in the state.
Raffensperger revealed this bit of news during an interview he conducted on Monday on Good Morning America, just a day after the Washington Post ran a story that included the audio of the phone call. During the call, Trump pressed the secretary of state to find 11,000 votes for him.
Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos asked him if he planned to open an investigation, to which Raffensperger said, “I believe that because I had a conversation with the president — also, he had a conversation with our chief investigator after we did the signature match audit of Cobb County last week — there may be a conflict of interest.”
He added: ”I understand that the Fulton County district attorney wants to look at it. Maybe that’s the appropriate venue for it to go.”advertisement — content continues below
In the phone call, which the White House has not disputed, Trump urged Raffensperger to reexamine the election with people who “want to find answers,” adding that Ryan Germany, a general counsel in the secretary of state’s office, could face prosecution if they don’t do what he demanded.
“You should want to have an accurate election. And you’re a Republican,” the president said. “You know what they did, and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal offense, and you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk.”
“I never believed it was appropriate to speak to the president, but he pushed out. I guess he had his staff push us. They wanted a call. The challenge that we have — first of all, we’re in a litigation mode with the president’s team against the state of Georgia,” Raffensperger stated. “Whenever you say anything, then you do have to have your advisers there. They had to have their advisers there, with lawyers. And so I just preferred not to talk to someone when we’re in litigation. We let the lawyers handle it. But we took the call, and we had a conversation.”
This just goes to show you how contentious this presidential election has been and what makes it so different from others we’ve had in recent memory. And it doesn’t appear things are going to get more unified any time soon.
Radical leftist media has been on the warpath since the very beginning of the Trump presidency, working nearly around the clock to try and stop him from implementing his America first agenda. It’s no surprise they would relish the release of the audio recording containing this phone call.
