Raffensberger: Georgia District Attorney May Pursue Criminal Charges Over Trump Call

President Trump certainly doesn’t appear to be riding off quietly into the sunset.

President Trump is facing increased criticism early this week after a leaked phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger began to make the rounds in the mainstream media.

In the call, President Trump presses Raffensberger on a number of electoral questions, and critics of the phone call have suggested that the conversation was uncouth, at the very least, and possibly even criminal under certain interpretations.

Now, Raffensberger is hinting that this may already be in the works. 

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Monday that it was unlikely his office would open an investigation into his weekend phone call with President Donald Trump, but suggested a criminal probe could still be launched by an Atlanta-area district attorney.

Because Trump personally spoke with Raffensperger on Saturday and recently had a conversation with the chief investigator in the secretary of state’s office,Raffensperger told ABC’s “Good Morning America” in an interview that “there may be a conflict of interest” that would inhibit any potential investigation.

But Raffensperger went on to say: “I understand that the Fulton County District Attorney wants to look at it. Maybe that’s the appropriate venue for it to go.”

The release of the phone call to the press set off a number of tirades from Democrats around the nation, many of whom are urging Congress to again take up articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, despite the likelihood that he will be leaving the White House on January 20th.

On Wednesday, a number of President Trump’s allies in Congress are set to object to the results of the electoral college’s 2020 voting, but there appears to be a consensus at this time that these objections will fall short of the threshold needed to make an impact on the contest’s results.
