Trump placed a call to a Georgia elections investigator: ‘Find the fraud!’

In addition to Trump’s now infamous call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger pressuring him to overturn the vote and declare him the winner, Trump called “Georgia’s lead elections investigator urging him to ‘find the fraud‘ in a lengthy December phone call, saying the official would be a ‘national hero,’ according to an individual familiar with the call who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the conversation.”

The president’s attempts to intervene in an ongoing investigation could amount to obstruction of justice or other criminal violations, legal experts said, though they cautioned a case could be difficult to prove.

The Post is withholding the name of the investigator, who did not respond to repeated requests for comment, because of the risk of threats and harassment directed at election officials.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
