Hey guys, remember that time Hair Füror tried to shake down the Georgia Secretary of State? (“Find me 11,780 votes [insert vague threat here]”)
What a dope:
(CNN)The office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed to CNN on Monday that it has started an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the state’s election results, including a phone call the former President made to Raffensperger.
During the call, Trump pushed Raffensperger to “find” votes to overturn the election results after his loss to then-President-elect Joe Biden, according to an audio recording later obtained by CNN.
The Hill in their write-up has the exact quote in question:
“The ballots are corrupt, and they’re brand new, and they don’t have seals, and there’s a whole thing with the ballots. But the ballots are corrupt. And you are going to find that they are — which is totally illegal — it is 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, that’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer,” Trump said during the hourlong phone call.
“All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state,” he continued.
