#TrumpTapes Trending: WaPo Releases Audio of Trump Call to Georgia SOS

The audio comes just 48 hours before the Georgia Senate runoff elections as well, complicating the already-messy race.

President Trump has been adamant that his loss to Joe Biden in the 2020 election was the work of “widespread voter fraud”, possibly in combination with some sort of malfeasance on the part of Dominion – a company responsible for operating voting machines in a great many locales around the country.

The Commander in Chief and his legal team have had a hard time selling this story to the courts, however, and have yet to make any real headway in a legal challenge to the election itself.

Politically, there are a number of Republican Senators who are willing to object to the electoral college’s results come Wednesday, as VP Mike Pence presides over a somewhat ceremonial counting of the ballots in the Capitol.  And, even if they were to succeed in rejecting the Biden victory, this doesn’t mean that President Trump would remain President.  In fact, there is growing concern that decertifying Biden’s win would merely result in the inauguration of President Nancy Pelosi on January 20th, as determined by the Constitution.

Trump is leaving no stone unturned, however, and the release of a phone call between he and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger seems to reiterate that reality.

President Donald Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn his loss in the state during a nearly hour long phone call on Saturday, WSB-TV reported.

In the phone call, which was first reported on Sunday by The Washington Post, Trump urges Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to find him 11,780 votes. President-elect Joe Biden won the state with 11,779 more votes than Trump.

“So look,” Trump said. “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.”
Raffensperger responds, “Well, Mr. President … the data that you have is wrong.”

The news had “#TrumpTapes” trending on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.
