Larry Ellison was involved in former President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election. According to a report in the Washington Post, the Jewish billionaire founder of Oracle, who is also a big donor to the Republican Party, took part in a November 2020 telephone call with Trump allies in which the participants talked about how to overturn the election results.
Larry Ellison is also known to have been a big supporter of Donald Trump’s. But he might not like the idea of getting caught up in the whole January 6 scandal. The U.S. Congress is currently holding an investigation into what exactly happened that day when a mob stormed the Capitol as well as into the possibility that Trump and his people may have tried to nullify the lawful election results.

Fox News host Sean Hannity, Sen. Lindsey Graham, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, and James Bopp Jr. from the conservative group True the Vote were said to have been in on the call with Larry Ellison.
“Jim was on a call this evening with Jay Sekulow, Lindsey O. Graham, Sean Hannity, and Larry Ellison,” True the Vote’s founder, Catherine Engelbrecht, wrote to a donor, according to court filings reviewed by the Washington Post. “He explained the work we were doing and they asked for a preliminary report ASAP, to be used to rally their troops internally, so that’s what I’m working on now.”
The contents of the call were revealed to a donor to the organization True the Vote named Fred Eshelman. According to the Post, Eahelman wondered about Ellison’s involvement and asked, “Why was he on call with Senator Graham? Is he part of data/analysis solution, is he a potential large donor, other?” Eshelman’
Bopp confirmed his participation in the call to the Washington Post, but denied that there was anything nefarious or illegal going on in their conversation. He told the Post ,“The question that I think was being discussed was whether or not congressional hearings on how the 2020 election was being conducted would be beneficial to whatever people were doing.”
