There is yet another leaked audio tape of former President Trump pressuring Georgia election officials to change the outcome of the 2020 race. This is a separate call from the January 2nd exchange with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger wherein Trump asked officials to find “11,780 votes.” In the newly released tape, Trump is speaking to Frances Watson, the chief investigator in Raffensperger's office. The then-president sounded pathetic as ever, telling her that he won Florida, Ohio, and Alabama and that he is positive he won Georgia as well by hundreds of thousands of votes. Trump criticized the state’s signature matching process and alleged voter fraud taking place in Fulton County specifically, which contains the majority-minority city of Atlanta.
In the waning days of his presidency, Donald Trump was dedicated to subverting the 2020 election results full-time. This was a crucial period for developing a vaccine distribution plan but instead Trump was focused solely on keeping power for power’s sake. The former president has been criticized for months over the “big lie” but it’s efforts like these that may have gone too far from a legal standpoint. Investigators in Georgia are looking into Trump’s calls with state election officials over a possible attempt at election fraud. This story could drag out for months or even years, as prosecutors decide whether or not to pursue a case.--
