The Georgia Secretary of State’s office opened an investigation on Monday into former U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results, an official in the office told Reuters.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office had faced calls to open a probe after Trump was recorded in a Jan. 2 phone call pressuring Raffensperger to overturn the state’s election results based on unfounded voter fraud claims.

“The Secretary of State’s office investigates complaints it receives,” said Walter Jones, a spokesman for the Secretary of State’s office, describing the investigation as “fact finding and administrative.”

“Any further legal efforts will be left to the attorney general,” he said.

Legal experts said Trump’s phone calls may have violated at least three state criminal election laws: conspiracy to commit election fraud, criminal solicitation to commit election fraud, and intentional interference with performance of election duties. The felony and misdemeanor violations are punishable by fines or imprisonment.

In the Jan. 2 phone call, Trump urged Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to “find” enough votes to overturn his Georgia loss. The transcript quotes Trump telling Raffensperger: “All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes,” which is the number Trump needed to win. Trump made another phone call in December to Georgia’s chief elections investigator, Raffensperger’s office said.

Additionally, two Democratic members of the U.S. Congress - Kathleen Rice, of New York, and Ted Lieu, of California - have asked in a Jan. 4 letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a criminal probe into Trump’s call to Raffensperger.

  • The election was stolen don't try to tell the world that we had a fair presidential election tell the world you are worse than any socialist or communist country.

    • Exactly!

  • OMG - shades of impeachment 1 all over again.  And this is coming from a state that allegedly has a Republican Govenor and Secretary of State.  Disgraceful!.

  • Baloney - more crap

  • Sooo an illegal election in Georgia is OK. SHEW. Smells like KKK to me.

    • isn't that something?

  • Let them take it to court. Trumps lawyers will be able to show to the court the evidence of massive voter fraud in Georgia with Raffensperger not alowing an audit of the signatures or the machines in his cover up scandal.

  • None of this matters. Trump said it was a perfect call just like his call with Zelensky was perfect. That is the end of it at least for any real American patriot who loves Trump and his country. 

    • Exactly!
