A top Georgia prosecutor is reportedly considering whether to open a criminal investigation into President Donald Trump's alleged "attempts to overturn the results of the state's 2020 election," the New York Times reported. In fact, the Times reported that a criminal probe into Trump has become "increasingly likely."
According to the report, the central concern of a possible investigation would be Trump's call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) earlier this month in which Trump allegedly demanded that Georgia officials overturn Joe Biden's victory there.
The controversial phone call was cited in the new article of impeachment against Trump, which House Democrats passed this week.
Although Trump's supporters have defended his call with Raffensperger, others have claimed the call is evidence that Trump committed a crime.
In fact, Slate claimed that Trump broke federal and state laws, citing one federal law that prohibits one from "knowingly and willfully...attempts to deprive or defraud the residents of a State of a fair and impartially conducted election process, by...the procurement, casting, or tabulation of ballots that are known by the person to be materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent under the laws of the State in which the election is held."
