He needs to be impeached again.

Ahead of the Georgia runoff elections, Donald Trump is fracturing his party to the point that the GOP could lose control of the Senate. Signatures on Georgia ballots have already been examined at least twice. Still, Trump is impervious to reality as he once again lashed out at Republican Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, to “find” enough votes to overturn the election results after being soundly defeated by President-elect Joe Biden in both the electoral and popular vote.

In a phone call audio to Raffensperger that the Washington Post obtained, Trump seemed desperate while at the same time, he sounded like a mob boss, asking the Georgia Secretary of State to “find 11,780 votes.”

Trump begged Rafensperger to act and went as far as to threaten him with vague criminal consequences if the secretary of state refused to pursue his baseless wild-eyed claims. At one point, the outgoing president warned him that he was taking “a big risk.”

Throughout the call, Raffensperger and his office’s general counsel rejected Trump’s assertions, explaining that the president is relying on debunked conspiracy theories and that President-elect Joe Biden’s 11,779-vote victory in Georgia was fair and accurate.

Trump insisted he was correct, and Raffensperger responded, “Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is, the data you have is wrong.”

At another point, Trump said, “So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.”

Apparently, Trump is as bad at math as he is at facing reality.

“There’s no way I lost Georgia,” Trump said once again. “There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.”

The threat.

“That’s a criminal offense,” Trump said. “And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer.”

Here’s the audio:

Literally, every single claim Trump made has been debunked. And what the president is doing is election fraud. Every accusation from a narcissist is a confession. It’s on audio, and it is an impeachable offense. I’m sure Susan Collins is concerned.
