Donald Trump’s old tweets are coming back to haunt him.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis highlighted a dozen of the former president’s posts on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, in her sweeping 2020 election racketeering case against him.
The tweets were showcased in a section of the 13-count indictment against Trump that outlined 150 instances that played a role in his alleged conspiracy to thwart the 2020 election.
Here are the tweets cited in the 98-page document.
Trump zeroed in a Georgia state legislature hearing and called out local officials in the Peach State. During that hearing, his allies peddled unfounded claims of electoral malfeasance in a bid to overturn the election.
“Georgia hearings now on @OANN. Amazing!” Trump said.
“Wow! Blockbuster testimony taking place right now in Georgia. Ballot stuffing by Dems when Republicans were forced to leave the large counting room. Plenty more coming, but this alone leads to an easy win of the State!” Trump posted.
“People in Georgia got caught cold bringing in massive numbers of ballots and putting them in ‘voting’ machines. Great job @BrianKempGA!’ Trump wrote.
Trump lashed out at Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and former Lt. Gov Geoff Duncan, blasting them for resisting his call for a special session to evaluation the election.
Duncan testified before a Fulton County grand jury in the matter this week.
“Gee, what a surprise. Has anyone informed the so-called (says he has no power to do anything!) Governor @BrianKempGA & his puppet Lt. Governor @GeoffDuncanGA, that they could easily solve this mess, & WIN. Signature verification & call a Special Session. So easy!” Trump wrote.
Trump again slammed Kemp over the Peach State election.
“What a fool Governor @BrianKempGA of Georgia is. Could have been so easy, but now we have to do it the hard way. Demand this clown call a Special Session and open up signature verification, NOW. Otherwise, could be a bad day for two GREAT Senators on January 5th,” Trump said.
The former president took to social media to promote Georgia state hearings on the election and ripped into Kemp.
“Hearings from Atlanta on the Georgia Election overturn now being broadcast. Check it out. @OANN @newsmax and many more. @BrianKempGA should resign from office. He is an obstructionist who refuses to admit that we won Georgia, BIG! Also won the other Swing States,” Trump said.
“Hearings from Atlanta on the Georgia Election overturn now being broadcast LIVE via @RSBNetwork!” Trump posted.
“We now have far more votes than needed to flip Georgia in the Presidential race. Massive VOTER FRAUD took place. Thank you to the Georgia Legislature for today’s revealing meeting,” he said.
On Jan. 2, 2021, Trump had a controversial phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during which he emphasized the need to “find, uh, 11,780 votes” — enough needed to overturn his election loss.
That phone call was the impetus for the Fulton County investigation into Trump.
“I spoke to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger yesterday about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling, or unable, to answer questions such as the ‘ballots under table’ scam, ballot destruction, out of state ‘voters’, dead voters, and more. He has no clue!” Trump said.
With about two weeks left in his presidency, Trump railed against then-Vice President Mike Pence, seeking to pressure him to decertify the 2020 election.
“The Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently chosen electors,” Trump claimed.
On the day of the Capitol riot, Trump again sought to pressure Pence into decertifying the 2020 election.
“If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!” Trump said.
“States want to correct their votes, which they now know were based on irregularities and fraud, plus corrupt process never received legislative approval. All Mike Pence has to do is send them back to the States, AND WE WIN. Do it Mike, this is a time for extreme courage!” Trump posted.
