The Federal Judge Carter, who serves with the District Court for the Central District of California, ruled that Donald Trump signed , under oath, a statement that he was told was false by his lawyers on the 2020 Gergia election vote totals which he kept insisting where the subject of ‘ voter fraud’, which his lawyers KNEW was NOT the situation…
