An aide to former chief of staff Mark Meadows' was part of the Trump administration's attempt to pressure Georgia officials into changing the 2020 election results.

According to documents that American Oversight obtained, Cassidy Hutchinson contacted Georgia's Deputy Sec. of State Jordan Fuchs on Dec. 30 to attempt to influence other members of Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's (R-GA) team. At one point Meadows actually went down to Georgia to visit with Georgia Chief Investigator Frances Watson.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) first contacted Raffensperger at the end of November to talk to him about the election. Graham denied calling the Georgia officials, according to NBC News.

"That's ridiculous. I talked to him about how you verify signatures. Right now a single person verifies signatures and I suggested as you go forward can you change it to make sure that a bipartisan team verifies signatures and if there is a dispute, come up with an appeals process," Graham claimed.

Trump first called Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) Saturday morning, Dec. 5, to pressure him to change the results of the election.

American Oversight also noted that on Dec. 23, then-President Trump called Watson to pressure her directly and find "the right answer."

Weeks later, on Jan. 2, Trump called Raffensperger, saying that he must "find" the votes that would change the outcome of the election.

At some point, Georgia officials began recording the phone calls and after denials from the Trump White House and Trump allies, they released the recordings.

Those calls are now part of the evidence in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis' investigation.

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti says it is time for Hutchinson to hire a defense lawyer:
