Donald Trump sent a letter to Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger last week, demanding that he "decertify" the state's 2020 election results. This isn't something that can be done, especially since the Electoral College already voted, but Trump made the demand anyway by citing nonexistent voter fraud as the main reason. But Trump's letter couldn't have come at a worse time for him, as he is currently being investigated in the state for election interference. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening.

Late last week, Donald Trump's spokesperson, Liz Harrington, announced via Twitter that Donald Trump had sent a letter to Georgia's Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, asking him to quote, decertify the 2020 presidential election results for the state of Georgia. Now that's not actually a thing that can happen, especially considering the fact that not only had it already been certified, but also the electoral college has already voted. And Joe Biden is the president of the United States. So there's literally nothing Brad Raffensperger can do. But in the letter, Donald Trump said, there's so much fraud out there, right? There was so much fraud in Georgia. You know it. I know it. We all know it. Except that, of course, none of it actually happened. But here's the interesting part of this. You see, Donald Trump is actually still under investigation by the Fulton county district attorney, Willis.

Who's actually looking into whether or not Donald Trump attempted to interfere with Georgia's elections. Now I know it's been awhile since we've gotten any news on that investigation, but last week it was announced that, hey, this investigation is still happening. There is a grand jury empaneled, and now Donald Trump asked the secretary of state again, could you decertify this? That's the big story. And honestly, it's hilarious because most outlets reporting on this, haven't mentioned that fact. They've totally left out the fact that this could be considered yet another attempt by the former president to interfere with Georgia's election, which does nothing except for bolster the case that Willis is likely to bring against Donald Trump. Instead of sitting by quietly, you know, not meddling in it whatsoever.

Donald Trump just went out there last week and made his legal problems in Georgia so much worse and made it so much more likely that he could ultimately end up being prosecuted. That's what happened with this stupid letter. You know, I've said a hundred times and I'll have to keep saying it for years I'm guessing at this point. But sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all. Unless, of course, Donald Trump is trying to get himself prosecuted in the state of Georgia in which case, good job, because you may have just guaranteed it at this point. They're not backing off this investigation. And of course, for those who may not quite remember, the investigation taking place in the state of Georgia has to do with Donald Trump's phone call to Brad Raffensperger where he told him, go find the votes.

And if he was implying that he wants Raffensperger to create the votes, then that would absolutely be a violation of Georgia state law, preventing anyone for any reason, regardless of their office, from interfering with the way that Georgia conducts their elections. And now this other letter, honestly, the way I see it here, this is almost a completely separate prosecutable offense here because it is Donald Trump Once again, attempting to interfere with Georgia's elections, with their election results, by begging them to decertify this. There's no good way out of this for Donald Trump.
