As the Fulton County, Georgia, district attorney’s office and a grand jury ramp up their investigation into Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election results in Georgia, federal prosecutors have obtained an email showing that the Trump campaign instructed a group of Republicans in Georgia who were planning to cast Electoral College votes for former President Trump to conduct the plan in “complete secrecy” so the media is not alerted.
According to CNN, the email was written by Trump campaign Georgia operations director Robert Sinners, who instructed the fake electors to tell security at the state capitol that they had appointments with two state senators.
“I must ask for your complete discretion in this process,” Sinners wrote.
“Your duties are imperative to ensure the end result — a win in Georgia for President Trump — but will be hampered unless we have complete secrecy and discretion,” Sinners wrote.
The Washington Post also reported that the email was sent on Dec. 13, 2020 and instructed the electors not to “mention anything to do with Presidential Electors or speak to the media.”
Fake documents were sent to the National Archives in December alleging electors for the Electoral College supported Trump in seven states President Biden had won.
People from Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania have since been subpoenaed to appear before the House Select Committee investigating the Jan 6 attack on the US Capitol for their involvement with the alleged illegal scheme.
