Trump demands Georgia election official 'finds' thousands of votes to overturn Biden

10 Jan 2021

Donald Trump has been recorded pleading with Georgia's election chief to help him 'find enough votes' to overturn the result in the state.

Audio of the phone call was obtained by The Washington Post and NBC News just weeks before the US president is set to leave office.

Mr Trump can be heard launching into a barrage of discredited conspiracy theories in the conversation with Georgia's secretary of state Brad Raffensperger.

The president even suggested Mr Raffensperger could be held criminally liable if he refused to find thousands of ballots had been illegally destroyed in Fulton County.

There is no evidence to support Mr Trump's claims of 'shredded ballots' in the county.
