Prosecutors in the U.S. state of Georgia have begun an investigation into former President Trump‘s attempts to influence the outcome of the presidential elections. The research includes the telephone conversation in which he pressured his interlocutor to “find” votes.
“ I just want to find 11,780 votes because we won the state,” said Trump at the beginning of January to the Republican Brad Raffensperger, the final responsible for the conduct of the elections in Georgia.
In the one-hour conversation, Trump exerted heavy pressure to undo Joe Biden’s election win in Georgia.
Parts of the conversation were published by American media in early January; listen here for yourself:
In a letter to, among others, Raffensperger, prosecutor Fani Willis now telling us that all documents relating to the conduct of the elections must be kept. The investigation will include possible violations of the electoral law in Georgia, the making of false statements, threats, extortion and pressure on those involved in the elections.
Although the prosecution does not explicitly mention Trump in the letter, according to American media, it is about him. That would have been confirmed by Willis spokesmen.
Meanwhile, the second impeachment trial runs against former President Trump, because of his role in the storming of the Capitol. Trump is accused of inciting the insurrection on January 6, killing five people.
