The Facts

  • Surveillance video obtained by CNN and The Washington Post allegedly shows the former GOP chair for Coffee County, Ga., leading operatives for then-Pres. Trump's attorney, Sidney Powell, into the county election offices on Jan. 7, 2021 - the same day as a voting-system breach.

  • Powell was a prominent figure promoting Trump's election fraud theories.

The Spin

Democratic narrative

The evidence that people close to Trump were accessing voting information for nefarious reasons keeps mounting. Powell is a conspiracy theorist who’s bought multiple baseless and debunked challenges to overturn the 2020 election results, and Latham was a fake elector. Both were already under investigation before these videos surfaced, and now investigators are clearly closing in on them, and possibly Trump.description

Pro-Trump narrative

Investigations like the one in Georgia are political weapons being used by Democrats to benefit their party and raise their own profile for personal gain. If Democrats had been accused of similar things, there would be little action taken. These accusations are double standards and a witch hunt.
