Audio of call between President Trump and Georgia officials released

Audio of a call between President Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger was released by the Washington Post yesterday. During the call, President Trump urged Raffensperger to “find” enough votes to overturn Georgia’s presidential election results, and Raffensperger said that the state stands by its vote totals (following a full hand recount in November). The discussion came ahead of this week’s formal certification of Electoral College votes, which Congress is expected to complete on Wednesday.
