Two House Democrats urged FBI Director Christopher Wray to launch a criminal investigation into President Trump after an audio recording of his call with Georgia’s secretary of state was released. In the phone call, the president pressured Brad Raffensperger to “find” more than 11,000 additional votes so he’d have more than President-elect Joe Biden in the state.

“As members of Congress and former prosecutors, we believe Donald Trump engaged in solicitation of, or conspiracy to commit, a number of election crimes,” Reps. Ted Lieu of California and Kathleen Rice of New York wrote in a letter to Wray on Monday, first reported by NBC News. “We ask you to open an immediate criminal investigation into the president.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The Democrats laid out three laws they believe the president may have violated: That “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…,” secondly, “No person acting under color of law shall … willfully fail or refuse to tabulate count and report such person’s vote,” and finally, “A person commits the offense of criminal solicitation to commit election fraud in the first degree when, with intent that another person engage in conduct constituting a felony under this article, he or she solicits, request, commands, importunes, or otherwise attempts to cause the other person to engage in such conduct.”

In the call, first reported by The Washington Post, Trump asks Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes” in the Peach State. Raffensperger, who repeatedly attempts to debunk the president’s claims of widespread election fraud in Georgia, refuses the request and questions his sources of information.

Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin also called for a criminal probe of the conversation yesterday.

“His disgraceful effort to intimidate an elected official into deliberately changing and misrepresenting the legally confirmed vote totals in his state strikes at the heart of our democracy and merits nothing less than a criminal investigation,” Durbin said.

  1. How about prosecuting all these leakers who intentionally leak confidential Presidential conversations and who edit them to change the dialogue? If you can’t (won’t) prosecute the.leaker then prosecute those.that recieved the info
    and passed it without permission.

  2. They literally have nothing here. But then if they are going to do that they can then here all the evidence how Georgia was stolen and votes flipped from trump to Biden.

  3. Are you f☆☆king kidding me these people are pushing the patience of the American people to the point we’re on the brink of a civil war and I’ve got nobody to blame but themselves

  4. No, let’s start a criminal investigation into all the Biden’s. Let’s spend 2 years and 40 million dollars. I promise it would be far more fruitful than Meuller’s investigation into Trump.

  5. i comments that yesterday when this Cow stupid and annoying Pelosi remains as a speaker of the house..looking for another scandal for president Trump.the more they hates President trump the more 75 millions voted for him lift him up ..with 6 children just worried to change her diaper 4 times a day not to give Virus or covid all those closer to her every day.,

  6. Wow The hypocrisy of these democrats! Talking about defrauding the citizens, counting all votes, blah blah blah! Exactly what they have done! Do as I say not as I do…….

  7. If Wray opens an investigation into Trumps phone call and has done nothing on The Biden’s China connection he should be arrested for
    Dereliction of his duties.
