Donald Trump Calls Georgia Investigation Against Him ‘a Witch Hunt’ and ‘Not the American Way’


Former President Donald Trump on Thursday and Friday issued a pair of statements commenting on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s attempts to investigate him for alleged election misconduct.

On Thursday, Trump emailed supporters and said his phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger after the November 2020 election “was perfect.”

“I knew there were large numbers of people on the line, including numerous lawyers for both sides. Although I assumed the call may have been inappropriately, and perhaps illegally, recorded, I was not informed of that. I didn’t say anything wrong in the call, made while I was President on behalf of the United States of America, to look into the massive voter fraud which took place in Georgia,” Trump wrote.

“Just last week, it was further determined that they are looking into ballot harvesting in Fulton County, after supposedly watching tapes of it actually taking place. This alone could be tens of thousands of votes. What this Civil Special Grand Jury should be looking into is not my perfect phone call, but the large-scale voter fraud that took place in Georgia. Then they would be doing a great job for the people. No more political witch hunts!”

As FOX5 Atlanta reported this week, Willis wants Fulton County Superior Court judges to impanel a special purpose grand jury. This, to investigate possible attempts to disrupt the 2020 election.

Trump commented again on Friday, via an emailed statement.

“So let me get this straight, I am being investigated in Georgia for asking an Attorney General with many lawyers and others knowingly on the phone to look for corruption, which definitely took place in the Georgia Presidential election — but the people who committed the crime are in no way, shape, or form under investigation and are instead being protected?” Trump asked.

“The people looking for the crime are being hounded and the people who committed the crime are being protected. This is not the American way.”
