In a recorded hour-long phone call, President Trump told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger that he wanted to “find 11,780 votes” in his favor to overturn Joe Biden’s win in the state. The Washington Post also reported that Trump appeared to threaten Raffensperger, saying that his refusal to comply with Trump’s demands would be “a big risk.”
The Washington Post obtained a recording of the conversation in which Trump alternately berated Raffensperger, tried to flatter him, begged him to act and threatened him with vague criminal consequences if the secretary of state refused to pursue his false claims, at one point warning that Raffensperger was taking ‘a big risk.
The GA Secretary of State posted earlier Sunday that ‘the truth will come out’ in response to Trump’s Tweet about their phone call.
