This information and petition came out on Tues. Jan. 5, 2021:
Donald Trump was just caught on tape trying to overturn the result of the 2020 election. We cannot let him get away with it.
On Saturday Trump called Georgia’s Secretary of State and, according to an audio recording of the call obtained by the Washington Post, Trump asked him to find enough votes to overturn Biden’s win and hand Georgia to Trump.1
“I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Trump demanded.
Congress cannot let Trump get away with this brazen attempt to destroy our democracy. Sign the petition: Tell Congress to impeach Trump for trying to steal the election!
Trump abused his power to seek to influence Georgia’s Secretary of State to change the vote count, and made threats if they refused his demands. That’s trying to corrupt the election, through and through.
Even if Trump fails, and Georgia’s Secretary of State has so far resisted Trump’s demands, this sets a terrible precedent. We have to hold Trump accountable now in part to ensure nobody else tries this in the future.
Congress has the constitutional means in the form of impeachment to stop Trump from abusing his power in order to cling to office. We should use that tool, now. It’s clear he’s delusional, desperate, and corrupt.
