He just wants to be the dictator of our country, and yet, Donald Trump is in a whole lot of trouble. The investigations into his actions just keep piling up. He might consider that good marketing during his project, namely seizing the state for the guy he refers to in the third person, Trump. But the Department of Justice (DOJ) disagrees. Take a look at what he did in Georgia. Uh, oh.
The former White House resident was so intent upon keeping his office, that he tried to overthrow our government — on January 6 and in a second attack. In the latter, Trump used personal persuasion with Georgia’s elections officials in early January, aka sedition.
Trump called Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and urged the man to “just find” him 11,780 votes. That would have given the ex-president the state, in other words, via a second attempted coup. Georgia’s District Attorney’s investigation into Trump’s actions to block Joe Biden’s win has been picking up speed. Not only did the Georgia DA investigate the ex-president’s phone calls, he has shared information with the January 6 House Select Committee, according to The Guardian.
A DOJ task force has been investigating threats to election officials across the country, including in Georgia. There election officers and workers received death threats or warnings of violence for nothing more than doing their jobs. More threats rolled into these officials, especially after Trump singled out one official during his rally for not backing his baseless fraud claims.
Willis has said prosecutors have been going over the law’s violations:
‘Potential violations of Georgia 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 and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.’
Attorney General in President George H.W. Bush’s administration, Donald Ayer, said in an interview, according to The Guardian:
‘Trump engaged in a pattern of repeated personal communications aimed at altering the vote count and making himself the winner in Georgia.’
‘He did so in the absence of any even arguable evidence of voting or counting irregularities. Unless there are other presently unknown facts that would explain it, this conduct appears to satisfy the requirements of a number of Georgia criminal statutes.’
Former Georgia prosecutor and Democrat, Michael J. Moore, spoke to The Guardian:
‘Her resources to address local crime are already taxed and any investigative steps taken on Capitol Hill means her likely marathon of a case against the former president may be a little closer to the finish line.’
The head of the Fulton County Board of Elections, Richard Barron, told The Guardian that two FBI agents interviewed them in early September. He told them he had received two death threats. The one he received this summer was “full of white supremacist language,” which warned he would be “served lead” also known as “shot:”
‘I hope the FBI makes some arrests. People need to be held accountable for making threats against public officials.’
Barron said that threats against him and his primarily Black staff exploded after the election. Democrats also won two Senate seats in the historically red state. That was when the threats against him took off.
Former Acting Chief of the Fraud Section at DoJ, Paul Pelletier, relayed what the DOJ investigation into the threats must be aggressive:
‘Absent rigorous law enforcement, responsible citizens will shy away from seeking these types of important public jobs, especially if they feel their families will be under threat.’
Republican Lobbyist Ed Rogers, who is also from Alabama, said:
‘I think the Trump presence in Georgia has not been good for the GOP’s politics the last two years, Politics is about addition, and vengeance is not consistent with addition.’
