(ConcernedPatriot.com) – This week, the grand jury’s evaluation of a phone conversation between former President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, which has been inaccurately reported multiple times, could determine if Georgia will charge Trump.
The indictment in Fulton County would probably accuse Trump and a number of his associates of applying unlawful pressure and techniques to persuade state authorities to invalidate the outcome of the state’s 2020 presidential election through their adamant objections.
TRUMP: "I made a PERFECT PHONE CALL OF PROTEST. What does Phoney Fani have to do with me? She should instead focus on the record number of murders in Atlanta!" https://t.co/QQNXtd1KPD

Although it is frequently claimed that Trump instructed Raffensperger to “find me the votes,” the conversation’s transcript reveals that Trump said, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”
Trump may not have intended it as an order but rather as a way of expressing his wish to record what he may have thought to be his true victory in the state, which he seemed to be winning on Election Night before Joe Biden won the mail-in vote.
On Monday, Professor Jonathan Turley of the George Washington University Law School pointed out that Trump’s remark has been extensively misrepresented and that his detractors have hardly tried to consider the possibility that he may not have meant what they have asserted he meant.
“Thus far, the focus has been on the controversial call that Trump had with Georgia officials — a call widely cited as indisputable evidence of an effort at voting fraud. Yet, the call was similar to a settlement discussion, as state officials and the Trump team hashed out their differences and a Trump demand for a statewide recount.
Trump had lost the state by less than 12,000 votes.
That might be what he meant when he stated, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.”
While others have portrayed the statement as a raw call for fabricating the votes, it seems more likely that Trump was swatting back claims that there was no value to a statewide recount by pointing out that he wouldn’t have to find a statistically high number of votes to change the outcome of the election.
It is telling that many politicians and pundits refuse to even acknowledge that obvious alternate meaning.”
On his Truth Social platform, Trump has been criticizing the integrity of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, claiming that she ignored crime in Atlanta while pursuing what would be the fourth charge against him.
