Donald Trump’s old tweets keep haunting him.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has highlighted a dozen posts by the former president on Platform X, formerly known as Twitter, in her sweeping 2020 election crime trial against him.
The tweets were featured in a section of the 13 counts against Trump, which detailed 150 counts involved in his alleged conspiracy to block the 2020 election.
Here are the quoted tweets 98-page document.

Trump went nil in a Georgia state legislature hearing and called out local officials in the Peach State. During that hearing, his allies alleged baseless voting offenses to overturn the election.
“Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Great!” Trump said.
“Wow! A blockbuster testimony is taking place in Georgia right now. Ballots have been filled by Democrats as Republicans were forced out of the grand count room. There are many more to come, but that alone results in an easy state victory!” Trump posted.
“People in Georgia were caught off guard bringing in huge amounts of ballots and putting them in ‘voting’ machines. Great job @BrianKempGA!’ Trump wrote.

Trump attacked Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and former Lieutenant Gov. Geoff Duncan, accusing them of defying his call for a special session to review the election.
Duncan testified before a Fulton County grand jury this week on the matter.
“Man, what a surprise. Has anyone informed the so-called Governor @BrianKempGA and his puppet Lieutenant Governor @GeoffDuncanGA (says he has no power to do anything) that they could easily solve this mess and WIN? Verification of signatures and calling of a special meeting. So easy!” Trump wrote.

Trump again railed against Kemp over the Peach State election.
“What an idiot Governor @BrianKempGA of Georgia is. Could have been this easy, but now we have to do it the hard way. Request this clown to call a special meeting NOW and open signature verification. Otherwise, January 5 could be a bad day for two great senators,” Trump said.

The former president took to social media to promote Georgia’s state election hearings and poked fun at Kemp.
“The Atlanta hearings on the Georgia election overthrow are now being broadcast. Listen. @OANN @newsmax and many more. @BrianKempGA should resign. He’s an obstructionist who won’t admit we won Georgia BIG! The other swing states also won,” Trump said.
“Atlanta election overthrow hearings will now be broadcast LIVE via @RSBNetwork!” Trump posted.
“We now have far more votes than it takes to turn Georgia around in the presidential race. There was massive VOTER FRAUD. Thank you to the Georgia Legislature for today’s insightful session,” he said.

On Jan. 2, 2021, Trump had a controversial phone call with Georgia’s Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger, in which he stressed the need to “find 11,780 votes” — enough to reverse his election defeat.
That call kick-started the Fulton County investigation into Trump.
“I spoke to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger yesterday about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling or unable to answer questions such as the “ballot under the table” scam, ballot destruction, “voters out of state”, dead voters and more. He has no idea!” said Trump.
January 5, 2021
With about two weeks left of his presidency, Trump railed against then-Vice President Mike Pence and attempted to pressure him to annul the 2020 election.
““The Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently elected voters,” Trump claimed.
January 6, 2021
On the day of the Capitol riot, Trump tried again to pressure Pence to annul the 2020 election.
“If Vice President @Mike_Pence prevails for us, we will win the presidency. Many states want to reverse the mistake they made in certifying false and even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their state legislatures (which they absolutely must have). Mike can send it back!” said Trump.
“States want to correct their votes, which they now know were based on irregularities and fraud and that corrupt practices never received the approval of the legislature. All Mike Pence has to do is send them back to the States AND WE WIN. Do it Mike, this is a time for extreme courage!” Trump posted.
All of the key figures mentioned in Trump’s old posts on X have since dismissed his election claims.
Duncan, for example, criticized the former president’s behavior and insisted the latest indictment should be a “wake-up call” for Republicans.
“The right thing to do is to denounce Donald Trump for lying, misleading us, and leading our Republican Party right into the ditch,” he said told CNN.
Duncan also reported that his testimony was a “very intense meeting” and declined to give many details about what transpired.
Raffensperger stressed the importance of defending the law.
“The most fundamental principles of a strong democracy are accountability and respect for the constitution and the rule of law,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “You either have it or you don’t.”
Kemp has argued that the allegations of voter fraud were false.
“The 2020 Georgia election was not stolen. “For nearly three years, anyone with evidence of fraud – under oath – and failing to prove anything in court,” he tweeted.
Trump also faces a four-count indictment for alleged election fraud, a 40-count indictment for alleged keeping of classified documents, and a 34-count indictment from Manhattan for alleged hush-money payments.
He has flatly denied the wrongdoing.
Willis has given Trump and 18 of his allies named in the Georgia indictment until August 25 to surrender voluntarily.
“All of these sham trials and Biden administration cases, including local ones, should be tried after the 2024 presidential election. “What they did is already meddling in the elections, but if the trials happened before the election, it would be meddling on a scale that our country has never seen before,” Trump said bubbled on Truth Social.
