Larry Ellison was on the call with Sean Hannity and Lindsey Graham to discuss reversing the election results

According to a report in The Washington Post, Larry Ellison, the world's richest man and co-founder of the Oracle software company, was involved in the call to develop a plan to contest the outcome of the US presidential election in November 2020. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Fox News host Sean Hannity, Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulo and True the Vote attorney James Bopp Jr. also participated in the call.

As reported by the Post, the call details True the Vote, a non-profit organization that promotes unsubstantiated claims about electoral fraud, and a voting rights organization led by politician Stacey Abrams of Fair, Georgia. A court filing related to the legal battle emerged amid the feud. Last year, Fair Fight filed a complaint against True the Vote, alleging that the group attacked voter eligibility in Georgia.

“Jim was on a call this evening with Jay Sekulo, Lindsay O. Graham, Sean Hannity and Larry Ellison,” wrote True the Vote co-founder Katherine Engelbrecht in an email seen by the Post. "He explained the work we were doing and he asked for a preliminary report as soon as possible that could be used to rally his troops internally, so I'm working on it right now. " The email was also posted on Twitter by the Puck reporter. Teddy Schleifer.

An anonymous call participant also confirmed to the Post that Alison was on the call, and indicated that Graham might be the one to invite her. The source reportedly speculated that the technical executive was brought in to discuss the baseless allegations that the voting machines used during the election somehow interfered with the results. Asked why Graham invited Ellison to the call, Graham's spokesman Kevin Bishop told the Post "probably because Ellison supported Trump." The Verge contacted Oracle with a request for comment, but did not immediately hear back.

Although Ellison stepped down as CEO of Oracle in 2014, he still serves as the company's chief technology officer and remains an executive chairman. In February 2020, Ellison organized a major fundraiser for Trump, and worked closely with the former president to collect information about trial data involving unproven anti-malarial drugs in the treatment of COVID-19. Most recently, Ellison donated $15 million to a Super PAC that supports Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who has expressed interest in being Trump's running mate in the 2024 presidential election.

Alison is also the biggest supporter of Elon Musk's Twitter acquisition, which has invested $1 billion in the cause. In the past, Ellison has called Musk a "very close friend," and even joined Tesla's board of directors in 2018.
