Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Pressed Georgia Official to Find 11,000 Votes in Heated Call” – below is their description.
Top Justice Department officials told Trump that his claims of election fraud in Georgia were false, including that vote counters secretly pulled ballots from a suitcase late at night, according to video of testimony.
Former Attorney General William Barr said the department conducted an investigation into the suitcase claim and determined it had no merit.
Byung J. Pak, who served as U.S. attorney in Atlanta during and in the days after the election, said the investigation included interviews with witnesses. Richard Donoghue, who served as acting deputy attorney general after Barr resigned, said he told Trump that there was no suitcase and that it was a container of valid ballots.
Raffensberger also said the state’s investigations of fraud — including Trump’s assertions that dead people voted — found nothing substantive.
“We found two dead people. Subsequent to that, we found two more,” Raffensperger said.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel

In This Story: Vote
Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.
In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
