Georgia Sec. of State Claims Trump’s Push to ‘Find’ Votes was a ‘Threat’

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger claims former President Trump’s call last year asking him to find votes that would prove he won the Peach State was a “threat.” After Biden flipped Georgia Raffensperger became a rival to the former President as the state conducted multiple recounts following the 2020 election.

The Hill reports:

Raffensperger wrote in his new book “Integrity Counts” that he felt Trump threatened him multiple times during their now infamous phone call in which the president asked the state secretary to “find” nearly 12,000 ballots in January, The Associated Press reported.

“I felt then — and still believe today — that this was a threat,” Raffensperger wrote. “Others obviously thought so, too, because some of Trump’s more radical followers have responded as if it was their duty to carry out this threat.”

In the phone call he had with Raffensperger, Trump could be heart saying, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”

In the same call, Raffensperger rejected Trump’s claim and said he would not acquiesce to the request.

Raffensperger will have to fight hard to remain Georgia’s Secretary of State now that Republican Rep. Jody Hice announced he would be leaving Congress to challenge Raffensperger for the office. Trump has already endorsed Rep. Hice.

Trump endorsed Jody Hice to become Georgia’s next Secretary of State in March through his Save America PAC.

“Wow, just heard the good news. One of our most outstanding Congressmen, Jody Hice, has announced he is running for Secretary of State in the Great State of Georgia. Jody has been a steadfast fighter for conservative Georgia values and is a staunch ally of the America First agenda,” Trump wrote. “Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity. I have 100% confidence in Jody to fight for Free, Fair, and Secure Elections in Georgia, in line with our beloved U.S. Constitution. Jody will stop the Fraud and get honesty into our Elections! Jody loves the people of Georgia, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement.”

Finding Ballots is a threat??? I bet the School Parents were behind it! Those Domestic Terrorists! They probably have Training Camps all over America and they plan to take over the World! Merrick Garland should send a memo to the FBI to investigate those People who think they have a right to care about what their Children are being taught! The nerve of them, have they no shame?

Do you notice how many democrats act like little pussies when they are cornered doing something guilty? Yup! What a bunch of sissies afraid of their own shadows and chickens when they should be doing something to help Americans!

The present Demonrat party has fallen into ignorance, lying, and manipulation to achieve this DISASTER CALLED AMERICA!! Even our enemies are LAUGHING AT US because they see how stupidly our country is being run, YET AMERICANS DO ZERO, NADA, NOTHING TO STOP THIS INSANITY!

If Americans choose to do nothing, then they deserve to live in this squalor of incompetence coming from D.C.! Guess living a FREE LIFE DOESN’t matter any more????

I listened to the entire conversation, it was more like: hey! Rathensburger! Why are you allowing ballots with really late dates, like way after the election to count? And, why dont you reject these obviously false votes? Why are you allowing a silicone valley billionaire to put up more voting boxes( that were not supervised),in your state? Hey rathensburger! How could you let this happen?
