Emails show fake electors for disgraced former president told to conduct scam in “secrecy”

“A Trump campaign staffer instructed a group of Republicans in Georgia who were planning to cast Electoral College votes for former President Trump to conduct the plan in ‘complete secrecy,’ according to an email obtained by media outlets. The Washington Post and CNN reported Monday evening that the email, written by Trump campaign Georgia operations director Robert Sinners, instructed the fake electors to tell security at the state capitol that they had appointments with two state senators. … Fake documents were sent to the National Archives in December alleging electors for the Electoral College supported Trump in seven states President Biden had won. People from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have since been subpoenaed to appear before the House Jan. 6 committee investigating the Capitol attack for their involvement with the alleged scheme.” (06/06/22)
