Rachel Maddow reported:
We actually have a few latest news to start this hour. We can report exclusively tonight that the lawyers of former president donald trump have now met in person the Fulton County District law firm in Georgia. It’s been months now that we learned for the first time that the prosecutor who runs this Office had opened a criminal investigation Georgia’s alleged violation state law that arose when Georgia election officials were pressured and intimidated after the last presidential election they should, indeed, falsified the the results of this state election.
It was a year ago, January 3, last year when the Washington Article published this shocking audio report of a extraordinary one hour phone call it president trump made personally to Georgia top election officials say him that he needed to find exactly the number of votes in the state that would allow Trump will be falsely declared the winner there.
Now in Georgia, as in every state in the country, put pressure on electoral officials interfere with the law administration of an election, put pressure on electoral officials modify the election results, it is of course a crime. The Fulton County State Attorney’s Office, Georgia, opened this investigation under Law of the State of Georgia. Pressure or intimidate election officials is a Georgia state crime. It’s a crime in every state of the country, and of course, it is also a federal crime.
Georgia election interference case could be Trump’s biggest legal danger
PoliticusUSA has been following the Georgia case closely and reporting on it long before the national media got wind of it, as it is a virtually open and closed case against Trump.
There is no doubt that Trump broke state laws against interference in the outcome of an election. He’s on tape, against the law.
A special grand jury participated in the investigation to collect evidence. Trump and associates like Rudy Giuliani and Lindsey Graham are at the center of the investigation.
Right now, the Georgia case is the most significant legal criminal threat to Trump, and his lawyers meeting with prosecutors show they are taking the case seriously.
