Donald Trump made it clear before he got elected that he intended to be the President of half the people. After he got sworn in – he kept his promise to be for Republicans – only! With the Extortion Call to Raffensperger, we have to look at the real possibility Putin helped rig the 2016 – in every way! Did KGB Putin suggest to his good buddy he start bullying elected officials – the good ol Soviet Union Style!
The FBI may be called in. I hope VP Elect, Kamala Harris is putting together a team of Special Prosecutors – because this is worse than Watergate!
The January 2 phone call, audio of which was originally obtained by The Washington Post, featured pleas from the president for Raffensperger to “find” more than 11,000 votes cast for Trump. The specific number of votes Trump requested—11,780—would give him one more vote than President-elect Joe Biden received in the state
Representatives Ted Lieu of California and Kathleen Rice of New York announced on Monday they sent a criminal referral to FBI Director Christopher Wray in response to the leaked phone call.https://www.dianomi.com/smartads.epl?id=3533
“The President of the United States, in an approximately one-hour long phone call, threatened and berated Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to ‘find 11,780 votes’ to overturn the President’s defeat in the state,” Lieu and Rice wrote in their letter to Wray.
“As Members of Congress and former prosecutors, we believe Donald Trump engaged in solicitation of, or conspiracy to commit, a number of election crimes. We ask you to open an immediate criminal investigation into the President,” the letter continues.
Newsweek reached out to the White House for comment but did not hear back before publication.
