US President Donald Trump was caught on tape pressuring the Georgia Secretary of State to rig the election in his favor. Trump told him during a phone conversation that he needs him to “find” him 11,780 votes.

When the Secretary told him it’s a crime to rig the election, Trump threatened him that he’d be criminally liable.

The conversation Saturday, Jan 2, was the latest step in an unprecedented effort by a sitting president to pressure a state official to reverse the outcome of an election that he lost.

Trump confirmed in a tweet Sunday, Jan 3, that he had spoken with Georgia’s Secretary of state, Republican Brad Raffensperger, a day earlier.

Audio snippets of the conversation were posted online by The Washington Post. The Associated Press later obtained a recording of the call from a person who was on the call.

In it, Trump is heard saying: “All I want to do is this. I want to find 11 780 more votes, which is one more than we have.”

The release of the audio has led to the trend of the hashtag #TrumpTapes. Here
