On Monday, the selection for a special grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, was underway to investigate whether or not Trump and his allies broke the law in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election.
Trump had insisted his January 2, 2021 phone call in which he pressured Georgia election official, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, to help him and "find" him more votes was "perfect."
Around the time when Democratic District Attorney Fani Willis took office, an audiotape recording of the phone call–in which Trump urged Raffensperger to "find 11,780 votes...which is one more than [the 11,779 vote margin of defeat] we have, because we won the state."–leaked to the public.
Trump lost the election by more than 7 million votes nationwide and by 74 votes in the electoral college.
Despite being told there was no electoral error, Trump emphatically claimed he won Georgia by "hundreds of thousands of votes."
Social media users remain optimistic justice will prevail.
As Fulton County began impaneling jurors for the probe, Trump was furious and took to his Truth Social platform where he grumbled about another "witch hunt" against him continuing in Fulton County, Georgia.
Trump said of the southern state where President Joe Biden prevailed and claimed victory was “one of the most corrupt areas anywhere in the country."
Ron Filipkowski shared a screenshot of Trump's broken record complaint on Twitter and said Georgia was the state Trump is always worried about, "Because this time, the 'perfect calls' are on tape."
Trump continued grousing:
“A ‘Special’ get Trump Grand Jury has been convened to discuss a ‘PERFECT’ phone call that was made by me, as President, directly from the White House and with many lawyers and other people knowingly on the call, and with my assumption that the call was being recorded."
He maintained his innocence by insisting the call would have been legal because he was President at the time.
“As President I am the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the U.S. The Election was rigged and stolen!” he asserted, even though Trump's repeated claims of a rigged or stolen election have been debunked many times over.
In January, District Attorney Willis requested the grand jury to examine election interference in the state in order to issue subpoenas after more than 50 potential witnesses declined to speak to her investigators voluntarily.
Fulton Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney told the 26 prospective jurors, including three alternates, they were granted investigative authority and subpoena power to help Willis determine whether or not a crime has been committed.
