In another legal blast to Donald Trump, Prosecutors in Georgia have found connections between the former President’s supporters and the voting system breach in the State in 2021.
Here are the details of the news.
Prosecutors Link Donald Trump To 2021 Georgia Voting Breach
Through their newly found evidence, Georgia prosecutors investigating former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election have established Trump’s connection to the January 7, 2021, voting system breach in the State’s Coffee County.
According to the reports, the newly discovered pieces of evidence, mainly text messages, and documents, indicate Trump’s well-planned top-down approach to accessing sensitive voting software.

The evidence shows that Trump and his allies attempted to access Coffee County’s voting systems before January 6, 2021, to produce evidence that could have fueled Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud to delay official proceedings of President Joe Biden’s victory.
Among the messages obtained by the Prosecutor, one of the messages on January 1, 2021, read, “Just landed back in DC with the Mayor, huge things starting to come together. Most immediately, we were just granted access by written invitation to Coffee County’s systems. Yay! ”

The message was included in the group chat of members of Trump’s law firm Sullivan Strickler that the former President hired specially to find voter fraud evidence in Georgia and to explore the voting systems in the heavily Republican County.
The report says the ‘Mayor’ in the text is referred to Trump’s then-lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Misty Hampton, a former Coffee County elections official, supposedly created the ‘written invitation’ and falsely claimed that the County’s voting machines could easily flip votes from one candidate to another.

That invitation was then reportedly circulated to the members of Sullivan Strickler by Katherine Freiss, an attorney of Trump’s inner circle, which included Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
As per the records, Hampton delayed the certification of Biden’s victory in the State by refusing to recount results by the deadline.
One of Georgia’s fake electors was featured in a surveillance video with data experts from Sullivan Strickler reportedly making copies of the election systems in Coffee County.

Another local election official, Cathy Latham, is also reported to help Trump supporters access the voting systems.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has been investigating Trump and his team’s attempt to overturn 2020 election results in Georgia by illegally accessing the voting systems after the 2020 election in the State.
While Trump’s January 2021 call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, threatening him with criminal charges and asking him to “arrange 11,780” votes have been considered important evidence in the probe, the new messages and documents could be a central part of the investigation.

Willis is expected to indict Trump and his allies in the election subversion conspiracy. If indicated, the 77-year-old Republican Presidential front-runner would face his fourth indictment since the former President entered the 2024 race.
Trump was recently indicted with four felony charges for his alleged attempts to influence the 2020 Presidential election results.
Like in every other case, Trump denied wrongdoing on Sunday and defended his call to Raffensperger as ‘perfect.’
Trump wrote on the Truth Social platform, “I made a PERFECT PHONE CALL OF PROTEST. What does Phoney Fani have to do with me? She should instead focus on the record number of murders in Atlanta.”
In his Sunday post, the former President reiterated his false claims of “rigged and stolen” elections and labeled Willis as a “publicity-seeking District Attorney who is not interested in Justice.”
