Donald Trump may face many criminal charges as a result of his phone call to Georgia officials, in which he requested that they ‘find 11,780 votes’ to assist him overturn Joe Biden’s election victory in 2020.
According to a Brookings Institute assessment, Trump and his allies attempted to ‘alter the legitimate outcome of the election’ by assaulting the Georgia electoral process and vote count.
Trump and some of his associates, including Rudy Giuliani, could face charges of election fraud, intentional interference with an election official’s execution of election-related responsibilities, and conspiracy, according to the DC-based institute.
It also says Trump broke Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis has been looking into since his January 2 phone chat with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Much of the 107-page Brookings Institute research concentrates upon the infamous call in which Trump pressed Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp to ‘find’ votes.
During the phone discussion on January 2, Trump claimed that Raffensperger could reverse the certified findings, which the secretary of state flatly denied.
