– In early December 2020, Trump called individual Georgia lawmakers as he tried to persuade the General Assembly to demand a special legislative session that could reverse Biden’s victory.
– False allegations of voting fraud in Georgia played a key role in Trump’s unsuccessful effort to persuade the U.S. Justice Department to help him stay in office. That effort ultimately led to the resignation of Byung “BJay” Pak, the top federal prosecutor in Atlanta.
– Some of the Georgia Republican politicians who aided Trump are now seeking higher office, and even those who didn’t embrace his claims in 2020 are making them part of their campaign strategies in 2022. If those Republicans win, they would be in a better position to help overturn a future election.
