Kamala Harris brands Trump’s call to Georgia official ‘bold abuse of power’

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Kamala Harris brands Trump’s call to Georgia official ‘bold abuse of power'” – below is their description.

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris branded Donald Trump’s call with a Georgia election official a ‘bold abuse of power’.

A recording of an hour-long call between Mr Trump and fellow Republican, Brad Raffensperger, was leaked to the Washington Post.

In the call Mr Trump pleaded with Mr Raffensperger to “find” the 11,779 votes which enabled Mr Biden to win the state.

At another point in the conversation, Mr Trump appeared to threaten Mr Raffensperger and Ryan Germany, the secretary of state’s legal counsel, by suggesting both could be criminally liable if they failed to find that thousands of ballots in Fulton County had been illegally destroyed. There is no evidence to support Mr Trump’s claim.
