Nick Ackerman, the Attorney General (AG) who investigated the Watergate scandal against former US President Richard Nixon 50 years ago, said that the Georgia election interference case, in which former President Donald Trump alleges widespread fraud, is most likely to send Trump to prison.
It is worth noting that former US President Nixon was accused of spying on the Democratic Party’s election campaign in what was known as the Watergate scandal, after which Nixon was forced to resign from the presidency to avoid imprisonment at the time.
“I think that’s enough,” Nick Ackerman, a former attorney general of Watergate, told MSNBC news network.
He referred to a January 2021 call between Trump and a Georgia state official, which would send Trump to prison.
Fulton County in Georgia has formed a special grand jury to investigate Trump’s efforts to nullify the state’s 2020 election results. The case centers on the call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State in Georgia Brad Ravensberger.
Trump asked Ravensburger to “find” 11,780 votes to overturn President Biden’s victory in the state, and called the phone call “perfect.”
In Georgia, the investigative committee began hearing witnesses this month, including Ravensberger, and a grand jury will eventually recommend whether county prosecutors should criminally prosecute Trump for election interference.
