Former President Donald Trump is once again accused of wrongfully pressuring Georgia lawmakers to overturn the results of the 2020 election. This time, the allegations come from a new book by Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker.

The book, titled “I Alone Can Fix It,” details Trump’s efforts to stay in power after losing the election to Joe Biden. According to the book, Trump made multiple calls to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and other state lawmakers, pressuring them to find enough votes to change the outcome of the election.

In one call, Trump told Raffensperger that he needed to “find 11,780 votes” to win the state. He also said that Raffensperger was “screwing” him and that he would be “a national hero” if he could find the votes.

Raffensperger and other state officials have repeatedly said that there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in Georgia. They have also said that they are committed to following the law and upholding the results of the election.

The allegations against Trump are the latest in a series of legal challenges he faces related to his efforts to overturn the election. He is also facing a criminal investigation in Georgia for his alleged attempts to pressure Raffensperger.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has called the allegations against him “baseless.” He has also said that he is the victim of a “witch hunt” by his political opponents.

The allegations against Trump are likely to further divide the country and could have implications for the 2024 presidential election. If Trump runs again, he is likely to face questions about his conduct in 2020.

The book by Leonnig and Rucker is based on interviews with more than 200 people, including Trump, his aides, and state officials. It is the most comprehensive account yet of Trump’s efforts to stay in power.

The book is scheduled to be released on September 6, 2023.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the book:

  • Trump was obsessed with winning Georgia and believed that it was the key to staying in power.
  • He made multiple calls to Raffensperger and other state officials, pressuring them to find votes for him.
  • He also tried to pressure the state legislature to overturn the election results.
  • His actions were illegal and could have serious consequences.

The book is likely to further damage Trump’s reputation and could make it more difficult for him to run for president again in 2024. It is also a reminder of the dangers of a president who is willing to undermine democracy in order to stay in power.
