Georgia Grand Jury Heard Another Trump Call Recording

Georgia Grand Jury Heard Another Trump Call Recording

A Georgia grand jury heard an audio recording of a purported conversation between former President Donald Trump and the state’s former top elections official, as part of an investigation into alleged voter fraud during the 2020 presidential election, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The recording, which was previously reported by the Wall Street Journal, was among the evidence presented by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office to the grand jury on February 10.

The conversation reportedly included Trump and Brad Raffensperger, the then-Georgia secretary of state, discussing the state’s election results. Trump has denied the conversation took place.

The recording, which was reportedly obtained by the Wall Street Journal, has not been publicly released. It is unclear what other evidence was presented to the grand jury, which met for the first time last week.

The grand jury is investigating a range of potential election-related crimes, including allegations of voter fraud. Willis’ office has been investigating whether Trump and his associates illegally sought to influence the election outcome in the state.

The grand jury’s proceedings are confidential and could last several months. It is unclear whether any charges will be brought as a result of the investigation.

The audio recording is the second call that has been scrutinized as part of the investigation. In January, Willis’ office subpoenaed records related to a call between Trump and Doug Collins, a former Republican congressman from Georgia.
