Former President Donald Trump could be charged with multiple crimes over election interference in Georgia, a new report says.
a leading think tank in Washington, DC, analyzed publicly available evidence which showed that Trump and his allies attempted to pressure Georgia officials to “change the lawful outcome of the election.”
the smoking gun evidence is Trump’s infamous call to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 3, where the former president told him to “find 11,780 votes” to overturn Biden’s victory in the state.
“There’s no way I lost Georgia,” Trump repeatedly said throughout the call. “There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”
Biden won the state by nearly 12,000 votes.
Brookings Institution, a leading think tank in Washington, DC did a report on this and concluded that Trump could be charged with multiple crimes.
“We conclude that Trump’s postelection conduct in Georgia leaves him at substantial risk of possible state charges predicated on multiple crimes,” the report said. “These charges potentially include criminal solicitation to commit election fraud; intentional interference with performance of election duties; conspiracy to commit election fraud; criminal solicitation; and state RICO violations.”
