Donald Trump has been recorded pressurising Georgia's Secretary of State to overturn US president-elect Joe Biden's victory in the state.

The Washington Post obtained a recording of a phone call between Trump and Brad Raffensperger, during which Trump asked him to "find 11,780 votes".

He also suggested Raffensperger could face a criminal investigation and warned that failure to act could harm the chances of Republican candidates in Georgia's run-off elections this week.

Lorcan Nyhan from The Communications Clinic joined us to discuss these latest developments.
