Tapes reveal Trump never told Georgia officials to ‘find the fraud’ but did press them to investigate


While election officials in Georgia were verifying signatures on absentee ballot envelopes in one metro-Atlanta county in late 2020, President Donald Trump pressed a lead investigator to look at a different county, saying the investigator would “find things that are gonna be unbelievable.” Trump also told the investigator: “When the right answer comes out, you’ll be praised.” The December phone call, described by a person familiar with it who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to describe the sensitive nature of the discussion, is yet another link in the chain of the extraordinary pressure campaign waged by Trump on state officials as he sought to overturn the results of the November election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.
