Trump's demand to find more Georgia votes looking increasingly 'unlawful' as 'more facts comes to light': former prosecutor

“If you just look at his [Trump’s] conduct on his face, calling state officials, asking them to find additional votes that he needs, you know, that’s the sort of conduct that clearly rings the bell for criminal interference with an election,” Vance explained. “It’s complicated, because there are difficulties involving the First Amendment, involving official power, and frankly, it is a big burden to put on a district attorney in one county in Georgia to ask her to shoulder that burden when others haven’t. But Alex, I still have taped to the wall in my office the exact number of votes he asked for: 11,780. It’s been in front of me all these months, because if you simply think about what he did, asked them to find him one more vote than he needed to win Georgia, a crucial state, there is no way that we can ignore that conduct. Perhaps it’s lawful, but awful. But increasingly, as more facts come to light, it looks like it’s simply unlawful.”
