Breaking Down Georgia's Upcoming Elections and Trump's Influence

"And then you have Georgia. And this is where I think the ultimate Trump endorsement power will be at tested at its most roots. I think, look, Herschel Walker and our Senate writes down here. Again, a very open primary, but at the end of it, Herschel Walker is had a commanding lead ever since he got in the race is his popularity. He's known. Nobody really in the state of Georgia who's watched football or anything else in the last 30 years does not remember Herschel Walker as a running back from the university of Georgia who led him to a national damage deal. And husband trophy. This is just not something that is unknown in Georgia and the Georgia football team is very powerful when you look at touching voters or hearing that you played for Georgia football. And again, with the problem coming up with this election in Georgia is the Trump endorsement is very much at play and very much a factor, but there's also the anti endorsement if you would that Donald Trump has made and going after Brian Kemp on multiple occasions. Brad raffensperger Secretary of State, attorney general Chris Carr. He said in endorsed Mark Jones in the lieutenant governor's race and at the same time put out a post saying that he would never endorse Butch Miller, who was the other one in the Senate race. So again, he's played in a lot of races, two in particular that I'm focused on and just to see from a take position is the insurance commissioner's race and the attorney general's rice here. Both Patrick witt and John Gordon, who's running for attorney general Patrick witt against John King for insurance, are facing incumbents in the primary. Right now, internal polling shows that these candidates are struggling with name ID, struggling to get caught up. The Trump endorsement helps them. The Trump endorsement sort of bills over that gap of lack of credibility with voters who don't know who they are with have been running for the tenth district. Congressional seat in this process, John Gordon had been on the sidelines completely, both of them announced their candidacies and get in the race during qualifying time. So this has been a very shortened race for them.

"End up in Joaquin 53 at midway 52 down in Juliet I'm James Sears On Chicago's very own 7 20 WGN Talking to the newsmakers and asking your questions John Williams middays on WGN There is this hearing will kick off actually I guess it did a short while ago to determine if Republican representative Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia should be constitutionally barred from running for reelection because of what happened January 6th that the insurrection and the role that she played I don't know if she's on the witness stand now We'll find out in just a minute but it's going to be a long day of hearing and she will as a result be the first lawmaker Maybe the only one but certainly the first to testify under oath about their involvement in what happened on January 6th and my understanding is maybe I maybe you're as new to this as I am but the Fourteenth Amendment this revolves around a civil war era provision which says any American official who takes an oath to uphold the constitution is disqualified from holding any future office if they quote engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same Or have given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof Okay let's visit with a reporter in Atlanta This is Sandra parish with WSB radio I Sandra this is John you're on WGN in Chicago Hi John How are you I'm doing well so maybe you're monitoring this a little more closely there than we are here What else should we know about what's happening today Well so once the judge hears all the evidence he will make a recommendation He's not actually going to impose anything He will forward his recommendation on to Secretary of State Brad raffensperger which you may or may not have heard new surrounding him and president Trump because of Trump's claims about voter fraud And so he's been in the news and he's running for reelection and he will be making the decision on all of this That's quite interesting Raffensperger will be He will be It would be up to the Secretary of State to determine if she can seek reelection Yeah we all certainly remember that name And he is a Republican right He is I don't know what that means relative to this case but if this is a politically charged thing then I wonder where his allegiance is has he said anything about how he feels about this Now he is not to my knowledge he has not come out openly and said anything in regards to this It's like you mentioned it is a historical event I think no one was really expecting what we would hear from Marjorie Taylor Greene today because often she is colorful in her remarks She's been pretty temperate throughout her testimony She's been talking probably I don't know going on about an hour and a half now And she was deemed to be a hostile witness I mean she was fighting back on some of the questions that the attorney was asking her But she maintains that she did not have anything to do to incite the riots of January 6th a lot was focused on her social media She called for people to come out and attend the march for Trump And she says in no way was she trying to incite anything I think another post that she liked on Facebook had to do with shooting a bullet to the head for Nancy Pelosi would be quicker than removing to remove her from House speaker And so at this point something she says that she she tweets or when she was on Twitter some things her staff members did and so there's been a lot of focus on that as well So she's not on trial per se She's not going to be found guilty of a crime here right Correct Correct This all has to do with her running for future office And so there is this hearing before a judge and one attorney or she's got a legal team I guess representing her and then who's making the case against her whose prosecuting her if you will So the suit was brought by 5 of her constituents in the 14th congressional district and the attorney Ron fain is the one who is questioning her I'm not sure if there's more than one attorney for this challengers but he is the main one who's some questioning her today Now that fangirl was on MSNBC the other day and he said that he's going to ask green about calling for Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden to be quote unquote executed for treason and telling her followers that they could not allow a peaceful transfer of power She used the code word 1776 encouraging rioters to storm the capitol If they say okay you did that If they get those goods on her then does that automatically mean that she can't run for Congress again You know I think it's all open to how the interpretation this judge will hear this case and decide if those remarks are inflammatory enough that she actually they're focusing on the January 6th riots So they did bring up they brought up Nancy Pelosi as you know as I mentioned before the bullet to the head would be quicker to remove her from office A lot of these things she's denying that she did or she doesn't know who did it or she had staff members who did it She's been handed a lot of papers They have written copies of it And so but throughout the morning to about her testimony she definitely had some hostile remarks and hasn't admitted to doing anything So I'm going back to this Fourteenth Amendment here The constitution it disqualifies a person from holding future office if they engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same I guess that would be the sitting government rebellion against the government or have given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof So is that engaging in insurrection or is that I mean I see how you might conclude that it is but I don't know where you draw the line between free speech sarcastic speech angry speech even dishonest speech Does do those things mean you can't How do you score.

"Saw some clips and this is a fantastic movie It is fantastic There is no denying your eyes are not lying when you see these guys just coming with bundles of ballots and shove them into these boxes And let me ask you something at this point has law enforcement at any level seen this movie Well I will tell you that through the vote has filed an official complaint with the Secretary of State of Georgia and this guy Brad raffensperger a Republican by the way has based upon the information provided opened up a new investigation And he's in fact recently issued subpoenas He says he's going to get to the bottom of it Now the reason this is a little bit dicey is this is the same Brad raffensperger who got into a verbal spat with Trump This is the same guy who declared the election with completely secure in Georgia This is the same guy who was lionized in the media as a Republican standing up against Trump So for this guy to now turn around and go you know what I was the sheriff but they're robbed They committed the robbery right under my nose and I really didn't notice it's going to be pretty hard for him to do that So I don't really know where this is going to go I'm optimistic that they're looking at it then there's of course the Republican attorney general barnaby and Arizona I'd love him to see the movie He's going to be jumping out of his seat So there are things that Republican attorneys general secretaries of state and even Republican legislatures can do Of course I have less hope that the Democrats in places like Michigan or Pennsylvania are going to spring into action In fact they might spring into action to figure out how do we cover this thing up

Caught on Tape! John Solomon Describes 2020 Election Ballot Box Stuffing

"So John, I want to also ask you, you guys have done a great job covering this at just the news dot com. Also this there's a new movie that's coming out with dinesh de Souza 2000 meals and you've been involved in helping cover this and helping publicize this. Tell us about what we think might be in this movie. I don't want to try to tip the hand too much. I'm actually going to be with dinesh tomorrow. I'm going to see the footage myself. Tell us about it. Yeah, so there is a complaint pending in the state of Georgia before Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger. He says the information is credible and deserves to be investigated. That complaint alleges, it comes from true the vote, an election expert a conservative election expert named Katherine engelbrecht. They obtained the video footage for all those dropboxes that were distributed for the first time in the 2020 election. Before 2020, we didn't use dropboxes deliver votes. But they put all these boxes out and often unsecure areas. And the only thing we had for protection was video surveillance cameras. Katherine's group went and got those video surveillance camera. And what they show, what they appear to show is people walking into the dead of night. When I mean the dead of night, I mean, midnight to 5 a.m. dropping in large stacks of ballots into the ballot boxes. Why is that a problem? It looks like ballot box stuffing is what we would have called it in the old days of tammany home. Well, in 2021, it's called harvesting. You are not allowed under Georgia law or Arizona law, Wisconsin law, Michigan law, to gather other people's ballots and deliver them for them. The person themselves has to go and deliver it. The only exception is for your immediate family. You can take your wife or your children to their ballots with you when you go. Any stranger, it's illegal. It's called harvesting in Arizona that begun prosecuting people for this. Well, these videos show what appeared to be harvesting, but Catherine's group went further. They went and got one of the people who participated in this scheme to admit he did it and described the large network of people 242 people were told that he described who participated this in Georgia both during the general election where Joe Biden allegedly defeated Donald Trump and then in the runoff where the Democrats won the two seats in captured the United States Senate, that there were 242 people making regular trips delivering these

"This is Bloomberg law with June brazo from Bloomberg radio So look all I want to do is this I just want to find 11,000 780 votes which is one more than we have Because we won the state The phone call between former president Donald Trump and the Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger seems to be the centerpiece of the criminal investigation in Georgia into whether Trump and others broke the law by trying to pressure state officials into throwing out Joe Biden's presidential election victory And now Fulton county district attorney Fannie Willis has gotten a court's permission to convene a special grand jury in the investigation Joining me is former federal prosecutor Robert minz a part in a Carter in English Bob why did the prosecutor request a special grand jury The Fulton county district attorney made that request because she said that key witnesses in the investigation including for example the Georgia Secretary of State would not cooperate without being subpoenaed to testify So the special grand jury was created to give her the power to bring these individuals before the grand jury Interestingly the special grand jury gives her the power to have a grand Curie whose sole focus is this investigation And they are able to meet on a more regular basis and will move this investigation along at a much quicker pace Of course the big question is whether Trump's attempts to reverse the outcome in Georgia were criminal What will the prosecutor be looking at The fallen county district attorney is going to look at certain key events that occurred on January 2nd 2021 Specifically at 3 p.m. on Saturday there was a phone call which is recorded between president Trump and the Secretary of State in which prosecutors may allege that president Trump tried to push and coerce the Secretary of State into accounting Georgia's presidential votes in a way that favored president Trump Specifically the language in the phone call includes president Trump stating to the Secretary of State we won very substantially in Georgia And then the president went on to say it's more illegal for you than it is for them because you know what they did and you're not reporting it That's a criminal offense and you can't let that happen And then he says what is probably the keywords in that telephone call I want to find 11,780 votes That's going to be the key fact in that investigation have prosecutors will try to prove that what the president was doing was threatening the Secretary of State that if he did not yield to that request that he himself could face criminal charges The particular statutes that the prosecutor in Georgia will be looking at R two criminal solicitation to commit election fraud and conspiracy to commit election fraud Let's focus on the criminal solicitation statute because it seems pretty straightforward Tell us about the requirements there That makes it a crime when a person commits the offense of criminal solicitation to commit election fraud when that intent another person engages in contact the constitutes a felony Here the underlying felony would essentially be tampering with the election results And what prosecutors would have to show was that Trump was demanding that the Secretary of State alter the final vote tallies so that it would appear that he won the election when in fact he did not As far as the criminal solicitation does it seem as if the phone call would almost be enough That's a great question It does seem like the phone call is quite damning but when you look closely at the words that were spoken it is not nearly as clear cut as it first appears The key to this prosecution is that the state will have to show that president Trump knew in fact that he lost the election and that he was asking the Secretary of State to quote unquote find votes that did not exist It would be a defense to discriminate case if president Trump could show that he actually believed he won the state of Georgia But if all he was asking the Secretary of State to do was to find real votes was to locate votes that are actually were made legally for him that would be a defense to these criminal charges So the entire case turns on the intent of the president did he ask the Secretary of State to find votes that didn't exist knowing that he in fact had lost the election Or did he have a real genuine belief that he won the election And he was simply asking the Secretary of State to find actual votes Most people have heard the saying that a prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich So the question isn't so much whether she can get an indictment but rather whether she only wants an indictment if she can get a conviction Prosecutors have to show that there is probable cause that a crime has been committed and that the individual named in the indictment has committed that crime That's the lowest standard we have in our criminal justice system There's probable cause in order to get the indictment However in order to get the conviction it's proof beyond a reasonable doubt which is the highest legal standard we have in our legal system While it's relatively easy for prosecutors to get an indictment because of the lower criminal standard and because the grandeur is only here the prosecutor's side of the case but a prosecutor never wants to get an indictment that they don't believe they can ultimately prove in court and particularly in a case like this that would be enormously high profile with the stakes enormously high I don't think we're going to see the prosecutor pursue this case unless she believes that she can ultimately get a conviction if this case were to go to trial Thanks bob That's Robert mince of mccarter and English Coming up next affirmative action at risk

"It's morning edition from NPR news I'm Debbie Elliott in orange beach Alabama And I'm a Martinez and Culver City California For months a district attorney in Georgia has been investigating whether former president Donald Trump and his allies committed crimes when they tried to overturn the 2020 election there Now she asked a judge to call a special grand jury Sam greenglass with member station W a BE in Atlanta has been following this And let's start off with some background What exactly is this district attorney investigating So Fannie Willis is the DA here in Fulton county where Atlanta is And her investigation stems in large part from that infamous January 2021 call that Trump made to Georgia's Secretary of State Brad raffensperger Trump asked him to help overturn the results of the presidential election in Georgia which Trump lost but he asked raffensperger to quote find 11,780 votes Raffensperger refused but Willis has said her office has reason to think that the election was subject to what she called criminal disruptions Here's what Willis told W ABE in September We will put the facts that are learned literally because I'm old school up on a wall with those facts are We will see if the elements of a crime are met if they are I will present a case to the grand jury Okay so what is a special grand jury and why does the DA want one A huge reason Willis wants a special grand jury is subpoena power She says her office has been basically having trouble getting witnesses and potential witnesses to talk without that subpoena And she said Secretary of State raffensperger is one of the people who has not agreed to talk on Fox News last night raffensperger called the investigation politically motivated This is page pate He's a trial attorney here in Georgia And I think he explains really well what Willis is looking for Not only does she need to show that former president Trump made this call and made those statements she needs to get in some evidence of what was his intent So I think especially if she really wants to move forward with a prosecution she wants more than just his voice on a phone call The other thing is that regular grand juries sit for about two months and they hear a whole bunch of different cases a special grand jury would be devoted just to this one investigation and it could go on for as long as they need So could this special grand jury actually charge Trump or his allies with something or anything No A special grand jury actually can indict anyone But Gwen thumbing She's a former district attorney in Georgia says they're still really important What it can do is issue a final report that would effectively be a road map as to all of the evidence it reviewed And be able to make recommendations as to which charges if any would be appropriate based on that evidence And then after that prosecutors have to decide whether to take the case to a regular grand jury and seek charges for say things like conspiracy to commit election fraud Has Donald Trump said anything Yes Trump put out a statement yesterday saying his call with raffensperger was perfect And the special grand jury should instead investigate voter fraud Again no proof of widespread voter fraud But as you can tell the ghost of 2020 is everywhere in Georgia at the state legislature on the campaign trail Our state's Republican governor and Secretary of State raffensperger are both facing Trump backed primary challenges because Trump says they didn't do enough to help him overturn the election in Georgia You really love the word perfect That's W ABE politics reporter Sam green glass thanks a lot Thank you The federal government is trying to make at home rapid COVID-19 tests.

"Welcome back to the Jim bohannon show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo on 866-505-4626 so you look at the situation with voting in this country and the Secretary of State of Georgia Brad raffensperger was going down the list of things he would like to see brought about either by legislation or if necessary constitutional amendment regarding who votes and under what circumstances please continue Well Jim HR one HR four in effect they say you can not remove people off the voter rolls Well 11% of all people are moving every year That's a huge number in every state And so your list are just the people that live in the state anymore They could pass away And so they do just sit there And that's just another way of opening up the door for potential fraud Especially when you remove photo ID I would note one of the things I know for a fact that I had it in my power to devote in two different states in I forget what year it was now This would have probably been in the 90s or something I don't recall Exactly but I was selling a house in the Illinois as I had moved to Maryland and I was registered to vote in the state of Maryland and did intend to and in fact did cast a ballot but I found out of the process of handling my housing sail in Illinois that I in fact was a voter in that state according to their voting roles which I promptly changed and corrected but not that of course one person would have mattered that much but I could have on that particular election I could have gotten up early flown to Chicago cast a ballot turned around come back and cast a ballot in Illinois according to the voter rolls so this notion that the voting rolls are just honky Dory as you note no they're not And it's not just people who move What percentage of the average voter roll and you may or may not have a figure here mister raffensperger But what percentage of the people in a given state are just flat out dead who are on the listed as a voter Well we actually updated ours in the 2020 race People said that there was 10,000 dead people We did our check We had found four people Harry or Martha died a few months before the election So their spouse voted for them but we only had four So for us it's not been an issue because we really tracked that And also being part of Eric the electronic registration information center we share that information and Eric has really good data analytics We could stay up on that Now what is the problem that some have with the notion of states sharing this information I mean if you have people who are dead or have moved I mean let's face it had that been in effect on my example Somebody would have noted hey Jimbo head and moved from Illinois and he's now a legal resident of the state of Maryland and that my name would have been stricken from the voter rolls in Illinois I'm not sure if that the particular compact did not exist in or if it didn't include those two states But there I was Go ahead It's relatively new It started about ten years ago but more and more states are joining it So firstly all the southeastern states are part of it excluding Tennessee but also California Oregon and Washington state So as red state blue states it's really just sharing of information when people move into your state so we can begin the process of a movie off of the states you move from It just makes sense And that's just when you do things that make sense then that really makes it a lot easier for Americans to accept the law and respect the law because we are a nation of law the rule of law is our cornerstone for our American constitutional republic And when they do things that just undermine that security then you lose respect for the rule of law And we can't go down that path Jack and Worcester Ohio good evening Taking my call I have two questions But first I'll just say I'm looking majority on this And entirely against non citizens being allowed to vote I know with the majority on that Now I just have a couple of questions for the Secretary of State And these are an allegations These are just concerns that I would like to get a straight answer since the Secretary of State is on as a guest here Historically in Georgia have the weights and predominantly black communities to vote been longer and will they be in 2022 That's a very good point of all the charges I have heard about restricting vote long lines It did sound to me as if there was a need for more voting prefix in portions of Georgia but you tell me in mister secretary Well number one counties set how many precincts they have And worm had the longest lines are actually Democrat counties with Democrat board of commissioners Democrat election boards and then Democrat election directors So if there's issues there the Democrats are doing to their own people That said But we actually then worked with the counties in the 2020 cycle and we gave them good information so that we said you don't have enough machines or you have too many voters for the number of machines you have in your precincts And our screenshot we tracked the wait times at every single precinct and we had an average of three minutes in the afternoon of election day but we also put into SB two O two that we can not have lines longer than an hour If you have any precinct that is aligned longer than an hour next election you have to ad equipment or bust that precinct in half to make sure you keep.

"Brad raffensperger told W AB's Jim burris this week that it's extremely troubling that two Fulton county elections employees were able to allegedly shred about 300 voter registration applications state law requires officials to preserve documents related to primary or general elections for 24 months Now raffensperger is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to intervene This after his office opened its own investigation despite Fulton's election director firing both employees involved Monday Here's raffensperger on the state's next steps Interviewing all the people involved in that not just the two people that actually shredded the documents of the determinator But also any of the other employees in the office and then their managers and the managers manager You've been critical a Fulton county in the past and that's been no exception with this instance calling the elections team and director talking about their malfeasance and kind of their inability to do their jobs What about this specifically is indicative of that to you Well obviously the haven't done a strong enough job on employee training Every employee of the state law says that you need to keep your records all records available for up to 24 months after an election We haven't even had this election yet And they have already just started disposing of the applications And so extremely troubling and obviously it goes back to the management team has not done adequate employee training The director of Fulton county elections immediately contacted your office Fulton commission chair rob Pitt's contacted Fulton county's district attorney What more do you think could have been done in the moment once this was discovered What didn't Fulton county do that they should have It's good that both the Fulton county reported the incident and then also that additionally that the phone county district attorney is looking into it Now you're looking at the action for those violations those infractions what does that look like What are those former employees What will they be facing but also then election boards and also the election director many times are part of that total investigation So we'll dig into all that and we'll bring that before the state election board for their determination By the end of the day the buck does stop with the county election official The director of elections is in charge of that in charge of trade making sure that all of us employees follow the procedures And so we will just have to look at the totality of what happened And then we can give the state election board that whole picture What would you say to the 300 or so unnamed voters potentially who are affected by this If you filled out an application and haven't gotten your official documentation that you are registered voter go ahead and go to my voter page at the Secretary of State's website SOS GA gov and go ahead and look up your name and see if you're on my vote of page If you are then you're good to go Make sure that your correct actress is on there at the same time But if your name's not on there then please let us know immediately Fulton county commission chairman rob Pitts told us the counties response was proactive and he calls criticism from the Secretary of State political He says it's still unclear why the employees shredded the forms We had non grew expensive training with the poll workers In fact we'd even had a mock election to walk through on Friday morning and so and I always say that you know there's no such thing as a perfect election Something can all ways go wrong But we were we thought we were totally prepared and we are totally prepared But that being said there can always be an equipment malfunction or human era or a disclaimer employee or even sabotage So in this case we have no idea what the district attorney is going to come up with But the point is when it came to our attention my intention mister Barron's attention we immediately contacted the appropriate authorities And so that's why we are now So there's reason to believe that the shredding of these applications was intentional Well we don't know that I'm just racking my brain trying to understand why with new employees do it Why They were a protocol in place that you saw ballot for an African was not legible You put it in another town called supervised take a look at it Can you understand how this may look bad though to some people from the outside Even if you were there you can not control what an employee will do every minute of every day And that's exactly what happened We don't know what the motivation was Was there human error whether malith and mine was now famous or the sabotage We don't know But I think we will know soon but they've been terminated That was fought in county commission chairman rob Pitt and earlier Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger speaking to our Jim burruss earlier this week Let's go to a vote of a different kind but still very controversial The Georgia board of regents which oversees the state's university system is changing its ten year process for professors As Martha Dalton told us

Democrats and Zuckerberg Had a Plan for Georgia, Republicans Didn't

"25 of the 26 cities and counties that receive the $1 million from Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life were one by Biden in 2020. The ten largest center for technology civic life grants in Georgia are the following Fulton Cobb gwinnett da cab. Clayton Douglas Cherokee won by Trump, Henry N muskeg. By mispronouncing of them, I'm sorry. I don't live in Georgia. The 9 out of ten of the biggest counties received massive money from Zuckerberg in fact Fulton county and Cobb county and gwinnett county received a combined $15 million. From the Zuckerberg center for technology and civic life for the actual administration of election. I know a lot of you are saying how on earth is this possibly legal, while the attorney general of Georgia didn't think to do anything about this? The Secretary of State Brad raffensperger was perfectly fine with this. Governor Brian Kemp signed a consent degree of Stacey Abrams that allowed the downfall of Georgia to occur. The federalists continues by saying the center for technology and civic life demanded the promotion of universal mail in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favored mail in over in person voting. I just want to reemphasize this. You have a private company or corporation or nonprofit funded with $420 million that comes in and demands the suspension of the law. Where the state legislatures this was in my opinion, one of the sneakiest, Treacher at most treacherous and deceitful actions but honestly, the state legislatures in Georgia, they did not meet in the summer of 2020 best of my knowledge about election integrity at all. The summer leading up to the election they should had a special session in July, they should have said hold on a second, we need to have a pregame meeting here. We gotta have a huddle. And this goes to show how weak incompetent and spineless the Republican Party is.

I have a few things that I could talk over with you. Maybe we can get this thing fixed up. The Maricopa County board of supervisors had just received this subpoena, demanding election officials hand over millions of ballots to state Republican politicians who were launching fraud investigations. He wanted us to turn over the ballots as soon as possible. So that the state Senate can get to work. Get to work doing one of the objectives was to get their hands on the ballot before the January 6th hearing in the capital. They wanted evidence to support these certifying the election. It's constitution be damned, really. Right. One of the main reasons I became a Republican in the 1980s was I thought the Republican Party was the party of the rule of law. The party of the constitution. In Michigan, a Wayne county Republican election official voted to certify the election, then changed her mind after a call from Donald Trump. I have provided them with a copy of my affidavit, rescinding my vote. In Georgia. Trump not only called the state's top elections investigator. Whatever you can do, Francis. But in what now is being investigated as a possible crime. Trump tried to convince George's Secretary of State Brad raffensperger to change the vote count. And there's nothing wrong with saying that, you know, that you've recalculated. It seems clear and clear that Trump was actually trying to steal the election. He was actually trying to create conditions where he would be declared the winner, even though he actually lost the election..

Much malign election integrity law. SB 202, calling the legal action a politicized intrusion. Into the state of Georgia is constitutional authority to regulate the time place and manner of its election. So The one hand we have garland interfering with Texas. Now we have, um, interfering with Georgia. And by the way, they've also made a threat to the states that are conducting audits of the past election. He's making another threat.
