Donald Trump Is Still Trying to Overturn the Election in Georgia
Even in the face of a congressional probe and criminal investigations into election tampering, former President Donald Trump is still trying to have the results of the 2020 presidential contest overturned in Georgia.
President Joe Biden narrowly carried the Peach State and its 16 Electoral College votes by a margin of 11,779 votes. Trump in his refusal to accept defeat pressured state elections officials to “find me 11,780 votes.”
And he is still at it.
“Large-scale voter fraud continues to be reported in Georgia. Enclosed is a report of 43,000 absentee ballots counted in DeKalb County that violated the chain of custody rules, making them invalid. I would respectfully request that your department check this and, if true, along with many other claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities, start the process of decertifying the election or whatever the correct legal remedy is, and announce the true winner,” Trump wrote on Friday in an angry letter to Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state.
“As stated to you previously, the number of false and/or irregular votes is far greater than needed to change the Georgia election result. People do not understand why you and Governor Brian Kemp [R] adamantly refuse to acknowledge the now-proven facts and fight so hard that the election truth not be told,” Trump continued. “You and Governor Kemp are doing a tremendous disservice to the great state of Georgia and to our nation – which is systematically being destroyed by an illegitimate president and his administration. The truth must be allowed to come out. Thank you for your attention to this matter.”
Trump’s letter was posted to Twitter by spokesperson Liz Harrington:
