ATLANTA- A spokesperson for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed his office has opened an investigation into the actions of former President Donald Trump—alleging the former President tried to overturn the state’s 2020 election results.
The claims are in response to Trump’s January 2nd phone call in which he pressed Raffensperger to ‘find’ votes.
“I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state,” Trump said in the phone call leaked by The Washington Post. “There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”
“The Secretary of State’s office investigates complaints it receives,” Communications Manager for Voter Education Walter Jones told Reuters. Adding, the investigation is “fact finding and administrative.”
“Any further legal efforts will be left to the attorney general,” Jones said.
