Jack Smith’s Interview with Georgia Secretary of State

Investigators from Jack Smith’s special counsel office are set to interview Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday in Atlanta. This interview is part of a federal probe into efforts to subvert the peaceful transition of power in 2020.

Trump’s Phone Call to Raffensperger

In January 2021, then-President Donald Trump called Raffensperger with a demand to “find” the votes needed for him to win the state of Georgia. At points during the call, Raffensperger felt that Trump was threatening him and his family if he did not comply. Trump has maintained he did nothing wrong in his exchange with Raffensperger.

Investigation by Fulton County District Attorney

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is also conducting an investigation into efforts to overturn the 2020 election in the state. Raffensperger testified before a grand jury as part of this investigation and Willis is expected to announce in August whether anyone will face charges.

Raffensperger, an elected Republican, has written about the phone call in his book “”Integrity Counts””. He has stated in the book that he felt threatened by Trump’s demands. The secretary of state and his family, as well as other election workers in the state, faced an onslaught of threats as a result of the call.

Investigation into Trump and 2020 Election Interference

Investigations at both the federal and state levels are taking place to uncover any illegal attempts to disrupt the 2020 election in Georgia. Raffensperger is to be interviewed as part of this process and the Fulton County District Attorney is expected to make an announcement in August as to whether anyone will face charges.
