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.
