Trump insists he “did NOT do anything wrong” when calling Georgia officials after the 2020 vote

Former President Donald Trump reiterated Thursday that he did “NOT wrong” after the 2020 election after a special Georgia grand jury requested subpoenas be issued for several members of his legal team, including Rudy Giuliani.

“I did NOTHING wrong in Georgia, but others did. They FRAUD in the 2020 presidential election and these are the ones who should be investigated (and prosecuted)!” said the 45th

The Fulton County grand jury this week requested that Trump allies Giuliani, John Eastman, Cleta Mitchell, Kenneth Chesebro and Jenna Ellis be compelled to testify.

A similar inquiry was made by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over calls he made to Georgia Foreign Minister Brad Raffensperger and his associates after Election Day.

The grand jury’s investigation is part of an investigation into efforts by Trump and his legal team to overturn Biden’s victory in Georgia and other key states.

The 45th President also defended his “PERFECT” calls to Raffensperger, urging him to “find” 11,870 votes so he could beat Biden’s vote count in Georgia and win the state.

Biden garnered 11,779 more votes than Trump in certified results, becoming the first Democrat to win Georgia since Bill Clinton in 1992.

“Both calls in Georgia were PERFECT. I had an absolute right to make it, and indeed the story about the one call was retracted or excused by the Washington Post for having received horribly wrong information about it, and when they heard the actual call, they realized that their story was wrong,” Trump said in a post on his social media page.

“Thank you to the WP I, as well as everyone else (just look at the Democrats!) who have the absolute right to challenge the results of an election. This one, CORRUPT, MANIPULATED & STOLEN!” he continued.

The Washington Post, in March 2021, amended a correction to a story it published on January 9, 2021, about a call Trump made to Frances Watson, Georgia’s chief election investigator.

In the correction, the paper said Raffensperger released an audio recording of Trump’s December conversation with the investigator.

“The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call based on information provided by a source. Trump didn’t tell the investigator to “find the scam” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did. Instead, Trump asked the investigator to examine the ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, and claimed she found “dishonesty” there,” the rectification reads.

“He also told her that she has ‘the most important job in the country right now,'” the newspaper said, linking to a recording of the call.

The Georgia probe is separate from the probe being conducted by a select House of Representatives committee, which has held six public hearings into Trump’s role in last year’s Capitol riots.
