February 9th – On the 8th local time, the Georgia Election Commission of the United States officially launched an investigation into Trump.
The investigation began after a law professor filed a formal complaint, ABC reported.
In a complaint, the law professor alleged that Trump had previously violated the law in a call asking Georgia election officials to overturn the election results.
The report said that the investigation may last for several months.
“This is a State Board of Elections investigation, and we have received complaints and will be addressed in the same way as all complaints,” Walter Jones, a spokesman for the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, confirmed that the investigation has been launched, saying.
Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2 to ask him to find enough votes to overturn the state’s election results, according to previous reports.
During the phone, Trump threatened Rafingsperger that he would face potential criminal proceedings and take “significant risks” if he did not do so, but Trump was eventually rejected.
