Trump Under Investigation For Trying To Stand Up To Election Irregularities

( Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is speeding up her probe into Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, examining a wide array of witnesses and preparing a batch of subpoenas for next week.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who beat a Trump-backed opponent in Tuesday’s primary, will be one of Willis’s key witnesses next Wednesday, sources told Yahoo News.

A lawyer whose client has been contacted by Willis’ team said Fari is aggressive and motivated beyond expectations.

Willis’ inquiry looks to be Trump’s most significant legal concern, as there are no obvious signals that the DOJ or the NYDA will charge him. She’s recruited ten prosecutors and agents to investigate Trump. A handful of them came to Washington this month to meet with Jan. 6 committee investigators, who gave private witness testimony and other evidence pertinent to Trump’s efforts to change Georgia’s 16 electoral votes, a person familiar with the matter said.

Willis anticipated focusing on Trump’s Jan. 3, 2021, hour-long phone chat to Raffensperger. He pushed him to “find” just enough votes to overturn the election results and hinted he might face criminal charges if he didn’t.

Sources say Willis’ agents and prosecutors are casting a wider net in an apparent effort to establish that Trump’s phone call was part of a broader conspiracy to pressure or intimidate state officials and lawmakers into changing the results of the 2020 election by promoting bogus voter fraud claims.

In recent weeks, Willis’ team has examined witnesses concerning Georgia Republican lawmakers’ efforts to designate an alternate slate of electors who would certify Trump as the state’s electoral vote winner. The team had also questioned senators who attended heated sessions when Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani made misleading remarks about a video he claimed demonstrated voter fraud. State and FBI authorities disputed this claim.

Raffensperger remains the star witness, and Raffensperger’s phone conversation with Trump is likely the case’s centerpiece. During his reelection campaign, he promised to advocate for a constitutional amendment to prevent noncitizens from voting. However, he has never wavered from his claim that there is no proof of fraud that would affect the 2020 election results. In a victory speech to fans, he repeated that Trump improperly pressured him.

He remarked, “We researched everything, and it wouldn’t have changed the race.” “I figured most Georgians want honest politicians. People desire leaders that stand for the truth and don’t cave.
