Trump tells Georgia election officials to 'find' votes to overturn Biden's win

Trump tells Georgia election officials to 'find' votes to overturn Biden's win

January 4, 2021: As the time comes near to leave his presidency, Donald Trump is insisting that he won the state of Georgia in the 2020 presidential race during a phone call with Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensperger. Begging and threatening him to “find” enough votes to move the state results in his control.

Trump said he needs to find 11,780 votes to change the result in Georgia.

Joe Biden won Georgia alongside other swing states, winning 306 electoral college votes to Mr. Trump’s 232.

Raffensperger and the secretary’s general counsel, attorney Ryan Germany, also pushed back on Trump’s assertions that ballots had been shredded or that the company Dominion had removed parts of voting machines in Georgia that would show more Republican votes.

Trump told Mr. Raffensperger he should re-examine the result in the state. He also warned Mr. Raffensperger that he would deter Republicans from turning out to vote in Tuesday’s runoff elections for the Senate if he refuses to recalculate the election result.

On Sunday, Mr. Trump tweeted that Mr. Raffensperger had not given details of the fraud the president alleges. “He has no clue!” the president tweeted.

Mr. Raffensperger tweeted back: “Respectfully, President Trump: What you’re saying is not true. The truth will come out.”

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, a Democrat, said Mr. Trump made a disgraceful effort to intimidate an elected official. He misrepresented the results of the 2020 election and that his call to Mr. Raffensperger was nothing less than a criminal investigation.

Durbin also said, “The president is unhinged and dangerous. Those who support his conduct, including my Senate colleagues, are putting the orderly and peaceful transition of power in our nation at risk.”

Top Republicans have said the Senate’s role in certifying the election is mainly ceremonial and should not be an opportunity for further lengthy debate about the result.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already recognized Mr. Biden’s victory and asked other Republicans not to object.
