Georgia prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into former President Donald Trump’s attempt to “influence the administration of the 2020 Georgia general election,” Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis announced Wednesday.

Willis sent a letter to numerous Georgia state election officials, including Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, requesting that they preserve documents related to Trump’s phone call last month in which he pushed Raffensperger to “find” votes to reverse his election loss, CNN reports, citing a person familiar with the investigation.

She said the “investigation includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia election law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local government bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office, and any involvement in violence of threats related to the election’s administration.”

There have been no credible allegations of any issues with voting that would have impacted the election, as affirmed by dozens of judges, governors, election officials, the Electoral College, the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security and the US Supreme Court.
