Trump Calls GA SOS To Request State Officials To ”Find” Votes To Overturn Election Loss, “I Just Want To Find 11,780 Votes”

An audio recording obtained by The Washington Post reveals a conversation between Donald Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Trump is heard pushing the SOS to “find” votes to overturn his election loss in Georgia.

According to CNN, Saturday’s one-hour call includes excerpts of Trump lambasting his Republican ally for refusing to lie about him winning the election in Georgia. He continued to throw out baseless claims of election fraud.

“The people of Georgia are angry. The people in the country are angry. And there’s nothing wrong with saying that, you know, um, that you’ve recalculated,” Trump said at one point during the call.

Raffensperger responded, “Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.”

In another portion, Trump is heard saying, “So look. 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.”

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, attorney Cleta Mitchell, and other Republican allies of Trump were also on Saturday’s call.

Apparently, Trump was displeased with the call and took to Twitter to detail the call and Raffensperger’s decision not to look into his unfounded conspiracy theories surrounding November’s election.

The SOS responded with his own tweet: “Respectfully, President Trump: What you’re saying is not true. The truth will come out.”

Trump’s latest shenanigan is just another on a long list of desperate attempts to save face and dismantle the already severed faith Americans have in the election system.

We are days away from Congress meeting to certify Biden’s 2020 Presidential election win, which could be one reason why Trump pestered Raffensperger Saturday.

This year’s traditional ceremony will look drastically different as Republicans from both chambers intend to object to the Electoral college votes.

Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was among 11 other Republican senators who said they would tout an objection to the Electoral College Votes if needed. They will also propose the election commission do an “emergency 10-day audit” of the results in the states that are being “disputed.”

Still, there is no evidence of the suggested widespread voting fraud, CNN reports.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer suggested that Trump’s call should be investigated when it comes to “election fraud” in a tweet at Sen. Cruz on Saturday.
