The Detroit News published a recording of a November 2020 phone call where Trump pressured Michigan Republican officials not to certify their county’s election results.
RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel was also on the call, pushing the officials to reject certification.
“If you can go home tonight, do not sign it… We will get you attorneys,” Ronna McDaniel said. (Trending: Trans Athlete Breaks College Record After Joining Women’s Team)
The call raises questions about potential legal ramifications for both Trump and McDaniel.
Attorney Ty Cobb said the call reveals “the depths to which Trump personally participated in fraudulently pimping the ‘Big Lie.’”
Michigan ultimately sent a fake certificate to Congress claiming Trump won the state’s 2020 election, leading to felony charges for Republicans.
This echoes previous instances of Trump pressuring officials in Georgia and Arizona, sparking discussions about election interference and potential legal consequences.
