The top prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia, has opened a criminal investigation of a phone call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger by then-President Donald Trump, who last month urged the official to “find” him enough votes to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis sent a letter to Raffensperger and other state government officials asking that they preserve documents related to Trump’s highly unusual call, a state official with knowledge of the letter told NBC News.

Raffensperger’s office confirmed to CNBC that it received the letter Wednesday, but declined to comment further. The letter comes as the Senate is conducting an impeachment trial for Trump that could end with the ex-president being banned from ever running for the White House again.

The letter says the request is part of a criminal probe that “includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local government bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”

The letter was sent two days after Raffensperger’s office opened its own investigation of Trump’s Jan. 2 phone call to the secretary of state.

In that call, Trump told Raffensperger, “All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes.”

That was the number of votes Trump needed to overtake Biden’s lead in Georgia, one of several he needed to reverse Trump’s Electoral College loss.

At the time, Trump and his allies were promoting a series of baseless claims that he had lost the election due to widespread ballot fraud in states including Georgia.

The call to Raffensperger occurred four days before Trump urged supporters at a rally near the White House to help him fight to overturn the election results by getting Congress or Vice President Mike Pence to refuse to confirm Biden’s win.

After that rally, thousands of Trump supporters rioted outside and then inside the U.S. Capitol, where Congress was meeting in a joint session to confirm the results.

Five people died in connection with the riot, including a Capitol police officer.

Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for inciting the riot.

His trial in the Senate began Tuesday with a debate over whether a former president could be tried after leaving office.

Evidence in the case is being presented today.

Twitter temporarily bans account of Republican lawmaker for violating its integrity policy

US tech giant Twitter has temporarily suspended the account of a newly elected Republican congresswoman for violating its integrity policy multiple times over baseless claims of election fraud.

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account was locked for 12 hours on Sunday after the company flagged at least two tweets as “disputed” and prevented them from being shared or retweeted as they carried the “risk of violence”, said a Twitter spokesman.

An ardent Donald Trump supporter, Green posted baseless claims over the Georgia elections on the social media platform after Democrats won the two State’s Senate seats.

The congresswoman is also known for having embraced QAnon conspiracy theories in the past and was endorsed by the president as a “future Republican star”.

QAnon followers believe in a conspiracy theory that Trump is waging a secret war against a global liberal cult of Satan-worshipping paedophiles. They have not offered any credible evidence for it.

“Americans’ rights are being stripped away and they aren’t being heard by the people they elected to represent them,” Greene said in a statement.

“With Big Tech silencing them, they literally can’t be heard. The censorship has got to stop.”

“If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having a conservative view,” she added.

Greene’s suspension is the latest in a series of high-profile social media bans and lockouts in the wake of the January 6 riot at the US Capitol where five people died.

Twitter banned Trump two days after the incident, and since then has scrubbed more than 70,000 accounts with QAnon ties.

Apple and Google have also barred downloads of Parler, a Twitter-like app popular among conservatives, and Amazon has kicked the platform off its servers.

That has outraged many Republicans, who say tech giants are infringing on their right to free speech.

Trump last week became the first US president in history to be impeached twice when the House of Representatives voted to charge him with inciting the January 6 mob attack on Congress.
