A criminal investigation into former president Donald Trump has been initiated by prosecutors in Fulton County. The investigation will look at Trump’s attempt to overturn Georgia’s election results. Furthermore, his phone call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger will be investigated as Trump tried to pressure Raffensperger into finding votes that would give him the win.

Fani Willis, the prosecutor in Fulton, sent a letter to various officials in state government requesting they preserve documents in relation to “an investigation into attempts to influence the administration of the 2020 Georgia General Election,” for their investigation.

Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Gov. Geoff Duncan, Attorney General Chris Carr. and Raffensperger were all sent the letter regarding Donald Trump.

Per the New York Times, here is what the letter states:

“This investigation includes, but is not limited to, potential violations of Georgia law prohibiting the solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.”

Former President Donald Trump is currently in the middle of a second impeachment trial with the Senate. The House impeached him for a second time after his “incitement of insurrection” on the Capitol last month.
