(TargetLiberty.org) – Since the election, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) has undermined President Trump’s campaign in its efforts to resolve the state’s voting irregularities. Despite a telephone conference on Saturday – which Raffensperger’s team leaked to Liberal journalists – the president and Raffensperger haven’t managed to work out their differences. Now, the administration has run out of patience.
The Saturday conference between Trump, Raffensperger and their respective teams was aimed at settling pre-existing litigation. On Sunday, Georgia GOP chairman David Schafer revealed on Twitter that the president had filed state and federal lawsuits against Raffensperger in December for violating Georgia election law. Under both state and federal law, such discussions are confidential. However, Raffensperger’s team secretly recorded the discussion and his office later leaked it to the Washington Post, which is now using it to attack the president.

The 1917 Espionage Act makes it a crime to convey information aimed at harming the US. If Raffensperger or any of his team are convicted under the act, they could face up to 20 years in prison.
