the investigation against Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump could get into legal trouble for telling a Georgian election official to change the election results. Meanwhile, two of the country’s lawmakers have written to the FBI to take action against Trump.

Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Rafensparger on January 2. The audio of their long phone conversation was first published by The Washington Post last Sunday, sparking an uproar across the United States.

At a news conference on Monday, the city’s mayor, Muriel Baizer, called on citizens to stay home on January 8. He called on the citizens to avoid those who would try to cause any kind of conflict. “Violence will not be tolerated in the city and we will not be allowed to do anything to disrupt life,” he said.

But Biden said in a speech in Georgia last night that he did not understand why Trump wanted to be president. As president, Biden said he was unwilling to do anything.
