( – On Wednesday, Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger is expected to be interviewed by investigators from special counsel Jack Smith’s office. AG Merrick Garland appointed Smith last November to handle two Department of Justice investigations concerning Trump. One investigation focuses on the alleged mishandling of classified documents by Trump, while the other examines his involvement in the Capitol insurrection on January 6, 2021. In December, Smith subpoenaed Raffensperger for any documents relevant to the latter case but did not request his presence or testimony at that time.

According to The Washington Post, Raffensperger’s upcoming interview with investigators from Smith’s office has been reported. However, Raffensperger’s office has declined to provide further details. The interview will likely center around the controversial call made by Trump to Raffensperger, during which Trump urged him to “find” 12,000 votes to secure a victory in Georgia. Specifically, Trump instructed the secretary of state to find just one vote more than what Biden had received to win the state.

Despite Georgia repeatedly affirming that President Biden won the state in the November 2020 elections, the case in Georgia has been a focal point for Trump and his allies in their efforts to overturn the election results. Raffensperger’s appearance is expected to address the legality of Trump’s request to “find” the necessary votes to reverse the election outcome in the state.

Additionally, Fulton County DA Fani Willis is investigating Trump’s attempts to overturn the state election. She previously indicated that charges related to this case could be brought forward during the summer.
