Multiple newspapers have reported that former President Donald Trump attempted to pressure Georgia House Speaker David Ralston to call a special session to overturn his loss in the state during the 2020 election.
Multiple sources have cited a recorded phone call between Trump and Ralston as evidence, although it has not been made public.
The grand jury investigating Trump's actions in the state after the election heard the recording.
Furthermore, it has been claimed that Senator Lindsey Graham reportedly suggests that Trump was so desperate to defend election fraud claims that he would have believed aliens stole the ballots.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis opened the Georgia investigation in early 2021, shortly after another recording of a phone call between Trump and a top state official was made public.
The Fulton County grand jury investigating potential election interference by Donald Trump in the Georgia 2020 election hears a recording of a phone call in which Trump pressured Georgia House Speaker David Ralston to call a special session and overturn his loss.
Multiple sources report that Ralston deflected the request, but it is believed to be part of wider efforts by Trump and allies to put pressure on state officials after the 2020 election.
Several grand jurors claim that Senator Lindsey Graham reportedly suggested that Trump was so desperate to defend election fraud claims that he would have believed aliens stole the ballot if someone had told him so.
Other grand jurors have not supported this characterisation of Graham's testimony.
The investigation stems from Fani Willis, the Fulton County District Attorney, opening an investigation based on a phone call by Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
Trump was recorded asking Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to win Georgia.
