On Monday, ex-President Trump expressed strong objections to a potential indictment related to him in Georgia, insisting he did not meddle in the 2020 state elections.

In a pair of posts on Truth Social, Trump asserted he played no part in distorting the election. He continued his baseless allegations, suggesting those who “manipulated” the election to work against him should be the ones held accountable.

“I never meddled with the election! The real culprits who manipulated and took the election are the ones who should face legal consequences,” Trump wrote in one of the posts.

In another, he urged, “Can someone inform the Fulton County grand jury that I played no role in altering the election?”

Fulton County’s District Attorney, Fani Willis, is preparing to present her case to a grand jury concerning Trump’s attempts to challenge Georgia’s 2020 presidential election outcomes. Willis has indicated that decisions related to charges will be made public by September 1.

Apart from this, Trump faces accusations in three separate incidents – a payment-related case involving Stormy Daniels in Manhattan, and two federal cases tied to the 2020 election events and his management of classified materials. Denying all accusations, Trump asserts that these charges are evidence of the legal system being misused for political motives against him.

A significant point that might be brought up in the Georgia case is a January 2021 conversation Trump had with Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, where he suggested Raffensperger “find” enough votes to reverse the state’s results in favor of then-President Biden.

Trump maintains that the phone call was completely appropriate and has voiced criticisms against Willis for her dedication to the case.

“This was a completely justifiable call of objection,” stated Trump.

He argues that Willis overlooks a plethora of evidence related to those he alleges worked against him in the election, choosing to solely target him. He further stated he is willing to present this information to the grand jury.

Moreover, Trump also took issue with former Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, who was recently summoned to give evidence before the grand jury. Duncan, Georgia’s lieutenant governor from 2019 to 2023, has openly expressed his disagreements with Trump.

Trump’s stance is that Duncan shouldn’t be a witness and labeled him ineffective for not investigating alleged voter fraud, accusing Duncan of continuously resisting the facts.
