Georgia Prosecutors Launch Criminal Probe Into Trump’s Pressure Tactics To Overturn Election

Former President Donald Trump faces yet another criminal investigation–this time in Georgia, as prosecutors have announced a probe into Trump’s efforts to pressure lawmakers into overturning the state’s election results.

According to NBC News, Fulton County prosecutors are investigating Trump’s phone call made to Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Secretary of State while he was still president. In that call, Trump begged the Georgia lawmaker to “find” the votes necessary to reverse a victory for Joe Biden.

Sources told NBC that Fani Willis, the Fulton County prosecutor, sent a letter on Wednesday to government officials in the state, including Raffensperger, requesting that their offices save all documents related to the call.

NBC News has verified the contents of the letter, which explicitly details that the request is part of a criminal investigation against Trump related to several charges ranging from false statements to “any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”

Raffensperger’s office has also opened a separate investigation into that fateful phone call, in which Trump reportedly told him, “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”
