Trump Sues Georgia Sec of State Over Leaked Phone Call

Date: Monday, January 4, 2021 9:12 PM EDT

MR. RAFFENSPERGER: Provisional ballots are allowed, you know, by state law.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: – you guys are so wrong and you’ve treated this – you’ve treated the population of Georgia so badly, between you and your governor, who wouldn’t – who was down at 21 – he was down 21 points and, like a schmuck, I endorsed him and he got elected. But I will tell you, he’s a disaster and he’ll never – I can’t imagine. The people are so angry in Georgia I can’t imagine he’s ever getting elected again, I’ll tell you that much right now. But why wouldn’t you want to find the right answer, Brad, instead of keep saying that the numbers are right? Because those numbers are so wrong and –

MR. RAFFENSPERGER: Mr. President, please –

PRESIDENT TRUMP: ... all we have to do, Cleta, is find 11,000-plus votes. So we don’t need that. I’m not looking to shake up the whole world. We won Georgia easily. We won it by hundreds of thousands of votes. But if you go by basic simple numbers we won it easily. Easily. So we’re not giving Dominion a pass, on the record. I will say that. .... But let the truth come out, and the truth – the real truth is I won by 400,000 votes at least. That’s the real truth. But we don’t need 400,000 votes. We need less than 2,000 votes. And, you know, are you guys able to meet tomorrow, Ryan?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: OK. Thank you, Brad. Thank you, Ryan. Thank you. Thank you, everybody.

MR. MEADOWS: Thank you.

MS. MITCHELL: Thank you.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. Bye.

MR. GERMANY: Mr. President.

(END OF CALL)

Wow - Just Wow.

There is much more in the complete transcript.

Trump Files Suit

Here's the Entire Call

Who Broke the Law?

Trump Proves He is Delusional

In case you were wondering if Trump was just playing his fans or if he truly was delusional, you have your answer.

For starters, there was no way Raffensperger was going to partake in this mad scheme. He had already turned down Trump's overtures several times.

Even if Raffensperger agreed to look for votes, and managed to find them, Georgia would not swing the election.

Besides, Raffensperger already investigated all of Trump's false claims.

If anyone broke the law it's Trump and his team for election tampering. Violating state law in a federal election is a federal crime.

Once again, kudos to Brad Raffensperger for recording the call and disclosing it.

Georgia Senate Elections

Earlier today I noted Democrats are In the Lead in Both Georgia Senate Races

It would not surprise me in the least if this reckless move by Trump ultimately is the deciding factor in both races.
