In a speech from The State of Georgia, which is experiencing a “crucial” supplementary vote for two Senate seats, Harris described the call as “a blatant and outright abuse of power by the President of the United States.”

Harris said the leak reflects the “frustration” of Trump, who continues to refuse to acknowledge his defeat in last November’s election against Biden.

The recording shows that Trump asked Ravensberger, also a Republican, to find 11,780 votes to reverse the result in his favor, causing widespread uproar, even among the party.

The newspaper explained that Trump used several methods to address Ravensberger, ranging from flattery and begging, to reprimand and threat, indicating that he threatened the secretary of state of Georgia with criminal consequences, if he refused to respond to his demands.
But the leaked call showed A.W. Revenberger’s rejection of Trump’s insistence on recount ings, telling him that he relied on baseless conspiracy theories, that Biden’s victory in the state was fair and accurate, and that he was sticking to the election results in several states, including Georgia.
Trump has come under heavy criticism, even from within the Republican Party, amid fears that leaks could hurt the party’s candidates’ chances of competing for georgia seats, and thus lose the Senate majority to Democrats.
Trump, as well as Biden, are scheduled to appear in Georgia on Monday as part of a heated election battle.
