If anyone is still looking for a smoking gun to implicate Donald Trump in a criminal act, Trump himself just fired it. Shooting off his big mouth again, Trump openly pressured Georgia’s Secretary of State to alter the the election results in order to make Trump the victor. And it’s all been captured on tape.
Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.
The Washington Post broke this story with the release of excerpts from an hour long phone call between Trump and Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Trump is heard explicitly pressuring Raffensperger and even threatening to charge him with criminal acts if he doesn’t comply with Trump’s flagrantly unlawful demands:
“You know what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan [Germany], your lawyer. That’s a big risk.
“They are shredding ballots in my opinion, based on what I’ve heard. And they are removing machinery, and they’re moving it as fast as they can. Both of which are criminal finds. And you can’t let it happen, and you are letting it happen. You know, I’m notifying you that you’re letting it happen.”
Wow. WaPo just released a recording showing President Trump attempting to blackmail Georgia's Secretary of State to overturn the election.

So Trump was officially giving notice to these Georgia officials that he intends to hold them criminally liable for the fake offenses he is accusing them of. That notice was clearly meant to scare them into submission. And by his own admission, his demands to overturn the election were based entirely on “rumors” and “what I’ve heard.” He still has no actual evidence, which is why he already lost about 60 lawsuits alleging election fraud.
It’s a desperate act by a desperate man who knows that when he leaves the White House he will be the one liable for an array of criminal and civil violations of the law. It’s literally driving Trump crazy (or crazier) than he’s ever been. And it exposes him to even more legal peril than he was in prior to this bizarre incident.
But that’s not the only act of desperation by Trump this weekend. On Saturday he dispatched his loyal but incompetent trade advisor, Peter Navarro, to Fox News to assert a blatantly unconstitutional “right” to delay Joe Biden’s inauguration. And Fox’s “Judge” Jeanine Pirro happily embraced the ludicrous notion.
The Trump tape (full hour and transcript here) also contained a familiar tactic used by Trump to twist the arms of his victims. He told Raffensperger that “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.” That’s the preamble to his “quid pro quo” that culminated with the threats above.
That’s exactly the same thing he tried on President Zelensky of Ukraine, which got him impeached. And it isn’t too late to impeach him again. Even if he’s out of office when the impeachment is conducted, It’s useful to establish the illegality of his behavior and to prohibit him from holding office in the future. It is also necessary as an attempt to deter him from committing more crimes in the few weeks he is still president. Lord knows what he’s capable of at this point, and in this deranged state of mind.

The Georgia Attorney General should be able to file charges against him and bring him to court after the Trumpenstien is out of office.
Hey, teddie! What was that sh!t you spouted earlier today about how your refusal to accept the electoral votes was a defense of democracy? Hahahahahahahahahahaha! There’s your election fraud, and it’s you boy doing it. Maybe if you got your head out of his a$$, your vision would improve….
I’m pretty sure that’s a felony.
“Thank you”, to whomever on Georgia’s end of call, decided to release that phone call for the public to hear! Trump can’t just “lie & deny” this time. This IS how he does business…like a 2-bit criminal thug. And we can safely presume that many other times he has made the same kind of calls to all sorts of people, for his own personal reasons & benefit. That’s how Trump does his business. That is NOT how the USA does its business & we cannot have such a person as this representing us ever again!
Apparently, a latge portion of the Rethug Party thinks it’s just fine & appropriate…I vehemently disagree!!
We can only imagine how many phone calls from President Trump have sounded very much like this one, that we know nothing about. Ones to foreign leaders & allies. We have a rule that ALL presidential phone calls are to be officially recorded & records are to be kept. They belong to us, not personal property of the president. This is just 1 of a multitude of rules & laws that Trump has NOT abided by & those around him have allowed him to violate. So, we may NEVER know the ttuth of anything he has said or done, unless “the other side” chooses to share their recordings with us.
I’m just thankful that this time, the other end of such a call has chosen to share the truth with us all.
Now, will we act upon it?
Love the article but things are deteriorating rapidly. This of course is all based on hi never satisfied attention seeking behavior. I only hophis disgusting rally 1/6/2021 will not result in as much trouble were already in
