Dear Friend,

This month, Democracy Now! turns 25—that’s 25 years of bringing you the voices and stories you won’t hear in the corporate media. Democracy Now! has always refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. Nothing is more important to us than telling you the truth. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please make your contribution of $25 or more in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love. Wearing two is even better.
-Amy Goodman

Georgia Prosecutor Opens Criminal Probe of Trump over Election Interference

HeadlineFeb 11, 2021

In Georgia, the district attorney of Fulton County has opened a criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s “attempts to influence the administration of the 2020 Georgia general election.” District Attorney Fani Willis has asked state authorities to preserve all records tied to the effort to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the state. On January 2, Trump asked Georgia’s secretary of state, the Republican Brad Raffensperger, to “find 11,780 votes” — the exact number of votes he needed to win. In another call, Trump urged an investigator in Raffensperger’s office to “find the fraud.” Georgia’s secretary of state’s office has launched its own probe into Trump’s calls to state officials.
