Attorney George Conway has informed President Trump that he just committed a crime on tape and is looking at some jail time.
The Attorney was reacting to a Washington Post bombshell report that contained audio of Donald Trump begging and then demanding Georgia’s secretary of state recalculate the presidential election vote totals in his state and find him close to 12,000 votes.
In a stunning phone call, Trump threatened GA officials to find him votes to tilt the election.
George Conway tweeted for the president — and whoever is acting as his lawyer these days — the relevant penalties for attempting or proposing fraud.
According to 52 U.S.C § 20511(2)(B): “A person, including an election official, who in any election for Federal office- knowingly and willfully deprives, defrauds, or attempts to deprive or defraud the residents of a State of a fair and impartially conducted election process, by- (A) the procurement or submission of voter registration applications that are known by the person to be materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent under the laws of the State in which the election is held; or
(B) the procurement, casting, or tabulation of ballots that are known by the person to be materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent under the laws of the State in which the election is held,hall be fined in accordance with title 18 (which fines shall be paid into the general fund of the Treasury, miscellaneous receipts (pursuant to section 3302 of title 31), notwithstanding any other law), or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”
Newsliks has reported that Trump told Republican Brad Raffensperger, “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state. There’s no way I lost Georgia. There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”
That, Conway suggested, amounted to election tampering
With that in mind, he helpfully tweeted for the president — and whoever is acting as his lawyer these days — the relevant penalties for attempting or proposing fraud.
According to our report, President Trump pressured Georgia’s secretary of state to “find” enough votes to overturn the election, according to audio clips from a phone call.
Mr. Trump, who has spent almost nine weeks making false conspiracy claims about his loss to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., told Brad Raffensperger, the state’s top elections official, that Mr. Raffensperger should recalculate the vote count so Mr. Trump would win the state’s 16 electoral votes.
“I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have,” Mr. Trump said on the call, a recording of which was obtained by The Washington Post, which published excerpts from the audio on its website Sunday. “Because we won the state.”
