New Evidence in Georgia Criminal Investigation of Trump
Notes of Telephone Call Show Criminal Intent - Law Professor Complainant
The new evidence - detailed notes about a telephone call from Trump to two top Justice Department officials in which he suggests faking claims about widespread voter fraud - was filed by public interest law professor John Banzhaf, whose original complaint triggered the now-ongoing and very far reaching criminal investigation of the former president. A copy of his filing today appears below:
DATE: July 30, 2021
TO: The Honorable Fani Willis, District Attorney of Fulton County
FROM: Public Interest Law Professor John Banzhaf
RE: EVEN MORE Evidence Supporting Earlier-Filed Criminal Complaint Against Donald Trump
As the author of the criminal complaint which helped spark your ongoing criminal investigation of former president Donald Trump, I write to provide still more evidence which might be useful to your office and its investigators.
More specifically, I now file with your office, and incorporate in your files by reference: Notes from December 2020 phone call between Trump and Justice Department officials (https://www.cnn.com/
"Former President Donald Trump pressured acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen to declare that the election was corrupt (http://www.cnn.com/
Further, attached to this email, and also therefore deemed filed and incorporated, are the actual notes referred to above.
Based upon what I know about your investigation, it would appears that these notes, and testimony which you may wish to obtain from Rosen and Donoghue, would provide strong evidence of Trump's criminal intent.
Please do not hesitate to contact me again if I can be of any further assistance.
