Here’s The Moment Trump Incriminated Himself And Opened The Door For Indictment In Georgia
Former President Donald Trump, who is under criminal investigation by Georgia authorities over his attempt to overturn the 2020 election in the state, appears to have incriminated himself during CNN’s town hall Wednesday.
As pointed out by legal analyst and Brookings Governance senior fellow Norm Eisen, Trump offered Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis significant “proof” of his 2020 election interference after being asked about his infamous call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Host Kaitlan Collins asked Trump, “Given the fact that there are indictments expected to come in that case this summer — is that a call you would make again today?”
“Yeah, I called questioning the election. I thought it was a rigged election. I thought it had a lot of problems. Listen to this: There are like seven lawyers on the call…we’re having a normal call, nobody said, “Oh, gee, he shouldn’t have said that,” Trump replied.
Collins interjected, “You asked him to find the votes.”
“I didn’t ask him to find anything,” Trump shouted. “I said you owe me votes because the election was rigged.”
Reacting to the exchange, CNN host Jim Scuitto asked the analyst about the potential repercussions of Trump’s claim that Raffensperger “owes him votes.”
“It’s the most important kind of proof for a prosecutor, Jim. Intent proof. Whatever he believed, once the election had been certified, he can’t demand that the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger just find 11,780 votes. It’s vigilante justice,” Eisen replied.
“Think of it this way,” she continued. “If I believed the bank owed me $11, 780, and I went in there and threatened the teller, ‘Give me my $11,780’ — even if I believe it belongs to me — you can’t do that, and you can’t do that in an election.”
