GA District DA Investigates Trump’s Call To Find Votes

Fulton County District Attorney, Fani Willis, revealed she has a Five month old, Anti-Corruption Team, to explore if an State Laws were Broken, when Trump and his Allies tried to Overturn Election Results there.

Her Investigators have Interviewed at least Four Officials at the Secretary of State’s Office, asking questions that show a particular interest in Secretary, Raffensperger’s (R) separate Phone Conversations with Trump and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Late last year, Raffensperger said that Graham called him a week after the hotly contested November Election, asking if the State Official could Exercise his Power to Toss-Out Mailed-In Ballots in Counties that had High Rates of Signatures, that didn’t Match those on File. Graham has since Denied that he tried to get Raffensperger to Dump Legal Ballots.

Then there’s the Jan. 2nd Shakedown Call between the White House and Raffensperger’s Office. On that Call, which was Recorded and Leaked, Trump pressured Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes” that Didn’t Exist, in order to Erase Joe Biden’s Lead and Flip the Election Results. Raffensperger was on the Call with his Deputy Secretary of state, Jordan Fuchs, and his Agency’s Top Attorney, Ryan Germany. Trump also had several Advisers on the Call, including White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, and Cleta Mitchell, from the Conservative Legal Community.

DA Investigators Interviewed a Number of People around May, who could have been Influenced by Trump's Plea to find Votes, including Germany, Agency Communications Director, Ari Schaffer, Chief Operating Officer, Gabriel Sterling, and the External Affairs Director who Oversees the Agency’s Outreach Programs, Sam Teasley.

Germany is heard on the Recorded Call, making a Notable Stand against Trump’s Conspiracy Theories when he said, “That’s not accurate, Mr. President.” Schaffer worked as a White House Researcher in the First year and a half of the Trump Administration. And Sterling briefly rose to National Prominence, last year, when he Delivered an exasperated Speech to News Reporters from a Podium at the State Capitol, demanding that the Conspiracy-Fueled Threat of Violence “has to stop.” “Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language,” Sterling said at the time.

DA Investigators asked General Questions “about the Graham call, about the Trump call, about how things work at the office,”. “They genuinely wanted to understand: If you’re trying to influence, what were you trying to influence, and how would it have worked?”. Another Person of the Probe said they had Indications that much of the Investigation is Done. “They’ve interviewed all the people that they wanted, then they got the documents that they wanted,” this Person said

There were Explicit attempts among High-Level Officials, such as Trump Campaign Manager, Bill Stepien, to wall themselves off from much of what: Giuliani, Trump, and Members of “Team Rudy” were doing during that Tumultuous, and eventually Violent Presidential Transition. Some in the Administration and on the Campaign were deeply Embarrassed by it. Some Predicted, likely accurately, that there would be potential Legal Exposure for themselves if they got too Close to what Giuliani and others were doing. “I did everything short of sticking my fingers in my ears when someone would say, ‘Hey, you hear what Rudy’s been doing today?’” One of the President’s Ex-Aides said.

There were some instances when many of these Top Trump Officials claim they learned about what Trump, Giuliani, and other Election-Deadenders were Privately up to or Plotting, only after reading about it in the Press. The Two former Senior Trump Aides said the reason they found out about the Jan. 2nd Call was simply because of Publicly Reporting on it.

Observers have noted that this Fulton County Investigation, out of Atlanta, is proceeding slowly. Earlier this summer, Willis is Struggling to Dedicate adequate Resources to Investigate Trump, because her Office faces a growing Crime Wave and is trudging through “a historic backlog of 12,000 cases” she Inherited from her Predecessor.

The effort to potentially Indict Trump faces a steep uphill climb, and Not only because it is still Unprecedented for a Local Prosecutor, to pursue a Criminal Case, against a former President. Willis, who is still in her First year in Office, is operating with County Funds that seem rather slim compared to the War Chest that Trump has amassed from Loyalists.

In an effort that may turn out to be more fruitful, Prosecutors appear to be Building an easier Case against Giuliani, who took a Weeks-long Post-Election Road Trip through Battleground States to cast Doubt on Ballot Results in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

Prosecutors are eyeing “false statement” Charges against Giuliani, who acted on Trump’s Behalf when he spoke before Georgia’s State Senate Judiciary Subcommittee, on Dec. 3rd, 2020, and Detailed his Rigged Election Conspiracy. Giuliani Lied that the State counted 96,600 “phantom votes,” Repeating the same Bonkers Claim that fueled Sidney Powell’s so-called “Kraken” Lawsuit, which was promptly Tossed-Out by a Federal Judge. Giuliani also presented Fake Evidence of Voting Machine Flaws and “mystery ballot boxes.” And he Repeated the Claims a week later, on Dec. 10th, before the State’s House Governmental Affairs Committee.
