The outgoing President Trump is continuing his unprecedented attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election. In the latest effort Trump reportedly berated the Republican Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffesperger in an hour-long phone call on which he demanded Georgia’s top elections official to reverse the results in the state. Trump reportedly spewed a number of false claims about election fraud to which Raffensperger replied, “The data you have is wrong,” according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The call was reportedly recorded.
Heard on tape:
Trump: “Fellas, I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break. We have that in spades already,” Trump said, suggesting more legal action. “Or we can keep it going. But that’s not fair to the voters of Georgia.”
At one point, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows urged Georgia officials “in the spirit of cooperation and compromise” to find a path forward that doesn’t involve the court system. ~ AJC
The move comes after Georgia held three recounts; all of which confirmed a decisive win for President-elect Joe Biden. Georgia also conducted a random signature audit of absentee ballots at Trump’s demand in the state’s Cobb County. The audit which was completed last week was done in conjunction with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI). It found that of the over 15,000 random ballots audited, only two were found that should not have been counted. One of them was a ballot that was signed by a legitimate voter’s husband; the other was signed on the wrong side.
In conclusion, Vic Reynolds with the GBI said that the signature audit showed an accuracy rate of 99.99% in Cobb County.
