Georgia election officials have opened up an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s January phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in which Trump urged him to “find” votes so he could overturn the result of the state’s presidential election.
“The investigation was prompted by a complaint from George Washington University law professor John Banzhaf III,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. “By opening the inquiry, the secretary of state’s law enforcement investigators will be looking into allegations involving Raffensperger, who is their boss. Election investigations can take months or years before they’re referred to the State Election Board, where Raffensperger is the chairman.”
