Former US President Donald Trump is being targeted by an investigation in the US state of Georgia, due to the attempts to change the result of the presidential election, informs The New York Times and Axios.com website.
The Fulton District Prosecutor’s Office in Georgia on Wednesday sent requests to several officials, including Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp, to keep the relevant documents in the investigation.
“The investigation includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia regulations prohibiting election fraud, false statements to state and local institutions, conspiracies, illegal operations, breaches of the oath of office, and any involvement in violence or threats associated with the administration. “a document issued by the Fulton District Prosecutor’s Office shows.
Donald Trump is suspected of calling Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2 to ask him to find votes to change the outcome of the November 2020 presidential election, won by Joseph Biden.
Donald Trump did not acknowledge the result of the presidential election, denouncing alleged electoral fraud.
Applying for election fraud can result in a sentence of at least one year in prison in the US state of Georgia.
Donald Trump is also under criminal investigation in New York State for alleged financial fraud.
If convicted in these states, federal pardon would not apply. In addition, in Georgia, state pardons are not granted by the governor, but by a special commission.
Donald Trump has been indicted by the House of Representatives for “instigating the insurrection,” and the trial is taking place in the Senate. The former US president is unlikely to be condemned by the Senate, as a two-thirds majority is required.
