US election: Criminal probe into Trump’s ‘find the votes’ call

rosecutors in the US state of Georgia are investigating attempts by former President Donald Trump to overturn results from last November’s election.

Mr Trump was recorded telling the state’s top election official to “find” more than 11,000 votes, enough to give him victory there.

The official is heard replying that Georgia’s results are correct.

Joe Biden’s win in Georgia and other swing states secured him the presidency.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis sent a letter asking state officials to preserve documents including those relating to the phone call and saying that a criminal investigation was being carried out.

“I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Mr Trump told Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in a recording of the call released by the Washington Post last month.

In the months after the election, Mr Trump made unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud and claimed that votes were stolen from him.

The call was made on 2 January, just four days before the US Congress confirmed Mr Biden’s election victory.

What does the letter say?

Ms Willis said in the letter, addressed to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, that the investigation included:

  • potential violations of state law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud
  • the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies
  • conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office
  • any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration

“This letter is notification that all records potentially related to the administration of the 2020 general election must be preserved, with particular care being given to set aside and preserve those that may be evidence of attempts to influence the actions of persons who were administering that election,” she added.

“I know we all agree that our duty demands that this matter be investigated and, if necessary, prosecuted, in a manner that is free from any appearance of conflict of interest or political considerations.”

Mr Raffensperger’s office opened its own investigation into the phone call on Monday.

What happened during the Trump call?

In excerpts of the 2 January phone call, Mr Trump can be heard alternately cajoling and pressurising Georgia’s secretary of state.

He insisted that he had won the election in Georgia and told Mr Raffensperger that there was “nothing wrong with saying you have recalculated”.

Mr Raffensperger responded by saying: “The challenge you have, Mr President, is that the data you have is wrong.”

Later in the call, Mr Trump said the rumour was that ballots had been shredded and voting machinery had been removed from Fulton County in the state – claims denied by Mr Raffensperger’s lawyer.

The president then threatened the official with possible legal consequences.

“You know what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal offence. You can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer,” Mr Trump said.

He then called for the extra 11,780 votes – which would have given him a total of 2,473,634 votes in the state, one more than Mr Biden, who received 2,473,633 votes.

The president told Mr Raffensperger he should re-examine the result in the state.

Trump Lawyer’s: ‘YouTube Has Removed My Opening Statement From The Senate Committee Hearing… Why is Google so afraid of the truth?’: WATCH IT HERE (VIDEO)

One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers said YouTube removed his opening statement from a Senate Homeland Security hearing on election fraud.

“YouTube has decided that my opening statement in the U.S. [Senate], given under oath and based upon hard evidence, is too dangerous for you to see; they removed it. To this day, ‘our evidence has never been refuted, only ignored.’ Why is Google so afraid of the truth? #BigBrother,” lawyer Jesse Binnall wrote on Twitter.

Another video of his testimony at the hearing, uploaded on Dec. 17 by a separate account, appeared to still be up.

YouTube has decided that my opening statement in the U.S. Seante, given under oath and based upon hard evidence, is too dangerous for you to see; they removed it. To this day, “our evidence has never been refuted, only ignored.” Why is Google so afraid of the truth? #BigBrother

Earlier this month, YouTube announced it would remove “content alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. presidential election.” The Google-owned company said that it was because the “safe harbor” deadline on Dec. 8 in the presidential election had passed.

There are still outstanding legal challenges regarding the Nov. 3 election, while dueling slates of electors voted for Trump during the Dec. 14 meeting of the Electoral College.

“For example, we will remove videos claiming that a presidential candidate won the election due to widespread software glitches or counting errors. We will begin enforcing this policy today, and will ramp up in the weeks to come,” YouTube wrote. “As always, news coverage and commentary on these issues can remain on our site if there’s sufficient education, documentary, scientific, or artistic context.”

It did not elaborate on the context it requires, and the announcement drew widespread condemnation from conservatives and free speech advocates. They argued that YouTube’s decision was tantamount to censorship of dissenting views.

During the hearing, Binnall, who filed lawsuits on behalf of Trump in Nevada, asserted that the election was riddled with fraud in the Silver State.

“Thousands upon thousands of Nevada voters had their voices canceled out by election fraud and invalid ballots,” he told senators during the hearing. “Here is how it happened. On August 3rd, 2020, after a rushed special session, Nevada legislators made drastic changes to the state’s election law by adopting a bill known as AB4,” he said, referring to the state law that relaxed restrictions on mail-in ballots.

Binnall also said that the campaign was denied transparency when they attempted to seek audits of voting machines or ballots.

As they probed the alleged irregularities, Binnall told the hearing they were refused access by state election officials to the code of voting machines for a forensic review or whether “they were hooked up to the internet.” He asserted, “We weren’t allowed near them … we weren’t allowed a forensic audit.”

“We were denied [transparency] at every single turn” in Nevada, he said, adding that one Nevada official “locked himself in his office” and wouldn’t open the doo Trump’s lawyers tried to serve him a subpoena.

Rudy Giuliani To Key States Counties: Let Team Examine Voting Machines to Prove Trump Won; The Only Reason You Would Be Resisting Us Is Because You Know You Did Something Crooked

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani called on counties in key election states to allow his team to examine voting machines to prove that Trump won.

In Arizona’s Maricopa County, the Board of Supervisors voted to reject a subpoena for voting machines on Friday. Giuliani suggested that in Arizona, “we get a warrant to search all of the machines … Why would you ever not want people to look at voting machines? voting machines aren’t private.”

“They don’t contain medical information,” Giuliani told Steve Bannon’s “War Room.” “They don’t contain illegal information. We don’t get to see who you vote for. It’s public information; [it] doesn’t even belong to you. The only reason you would be resisting our examining those machines is because you know you did something crooked.”

The former New York City mayor suggested that keeping the machines away from audits is a sign officials are trying to hide malfeasance.

He asked: “If those machines were straight as an arrow, they’d have put them out a month ago. Are people stupid? Don’t they realize when somebody resists a subpoena to examine voting machines, and we’re claiming fraud, and they’re claiming no fraud, the person who wants to reveal it is the one who’s right.”

On Friday, the Board voted not to comply with an Arizona State Senate subpoena for an audit of the voting machines, instead opting to file a lawsuit. Last week, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Eddie Farnsworth, a Republican, had issued the subpoena to audit Dominion Voting Systems machines and ballots in the county, with a deadline for Friday at 5 p.m.

But the Chairman of the Maricopa Board, Clint Hickman, said the subpoenas to examine the machines and ballots were a “slap in the face,” while another supervisor, Steve Gallardo, remarked that Farnsworth “knows better” than to issue subpoenas. The two said they were concerned that an audit would reveal voters’ private information.

Requests for comment sent to a board spokesperson and the five board members weren’t returned.

Republican Senate President Karen Fann backed Farnsworth’s subpoenas for the county board to overturn the machines and certain ballots.

Fann said in a statement to the Washington Examiner days ago: “One subpoena calls for a scanned ballot audit, to collect an electronic ballot image cast for all mail-in ballots counted in the November 2020 general election in Maricopa County, Arizona. The second subpoena calls for a full forensic audit of ballot tabulation equipment, the software for that equipment and the election management system used in the 2020 general election.”

Maricopa County uses Dominion Voting Systems, a company that has drawn scrutiny in recent weeks. The firm has repeatedly denied that its machines can switch votes from one candidate to another, while its CEO, John Poulos, said their voting systems were approved by the federal Election Assistance Commission and said the firm has no ties to foreign governments.

“No one has produced credible evidence of vote fraud or vote switching on Dominion systems because these things have not occurred,” Poulos said during a hearing with Michigan state legislators last Tuesday, adding that both he and his employees have faced death threats amid allegations that the Dominion machines were used to commit election fraud.

Giuliani, later in the interview, said that officials should make the dozens of Arizona machines “available,” and “we can do it publicly.”

“You can have the press there, make sure we don’t do any damage to the machine. Give us eight hours,” he added. “And we’ll show you how many false votes were in this machine, and how it was used to manipulate the vote. Do that in Georgia, do that in Arizona, do that in Michigan, and do that in Pennsylvania.”

In those areas, it’s necessary to look at the machines for a transparent election audit, Giuliani suggested.

“Let us see the machines, let us examine them. We’ll examine them on television if you want. It takes eight hours to do 22 machines. So we give one day to one place one day to another,” Giuliani said.
