The months between the November 2020 election and Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th of this year were turbulent, to say the least.
This was the first time in American history that a sitting President was adamant that he had had an election stolen from him, one way or another, and there was a very real fear that the political violence that we’d been seeing in places like Portland, Oregon would soon kick off some sort of Civil War.
Trump, like many of his allies, believed that some sort of “rigging” had occurred in 2020, and they were doing their damnedest to rectify that situation.
During this period of uncertainty, Donald Trump himself had spoken on the phone with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger, imploring him to help “find” a way to prove that Trump had actually won the Peach State.
Now, that phone call is the subject of a serious investigation that could threaten to see the former Commander in Chief charged with a crime.
Two grand juries have been convened in Georgia to investigate if Donald Trump tried to manipulate the general election.
Jurors in the secret proceedings are to be asked to subpoena documents and recordings for the investigation ‘in the very near future,’ Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told The Daily Beast.
Three cases have been referred to Fani Willis’ office by the Secretary of State – including to probe the infamous phone call in which Trump told the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to ‘find’ 11,780 votes.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing, however, stating that the phone call that he made to Raffensberger was “perfect” – a similar rebuke to those who believed a conversation that he had with the President of Ukraine years ago was an impeachable offense.
The Don was acquitted in the Senate over the issue of the Ukraine call, but there’s no telling how Georgia’s investigation is going to turn out.
