President Trump held a call lasting more than a hour with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and other election officials also involved in the outrageous election fraud in November. In an act of total dishonesty, Raffensperger recorded the conversation and leaked the audio to the media. On Monday, Jan. 4, President Trump filed two lawsuits against the secretary of state for leaking confidential litigation procedures.
The Washington Post on Sunday published the audio of a phone call made Saturday by President Donald Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, in which both can be heard discussing the election results and election fraud within the state.
While the conversation lasted more than an hour, The Post published heavily edited and out-of-context excerpts, tending to show a bad image of President Trump and sought to make listeners believe that the president tried to pressure Raffensperger into reversing the election results.
Far from what the Post claimed, the conversation sought to find common ground in the election fraud lawsuits and the president warns of the legal consequences on the issue.
During the conversation, President Trump sought to expose numerous examples of irregularities and anomalies that were reported in the Georgian elections.
Raffensperger is heard seeking to counter the president’s claims, largely with simple arguments that the issues raised by President Trump have already been investigated.
President Trump named various election fraud mechanisms used, such as dead people voting, the case of the false water pipe rupture that was used as a pretext to expel Republican observers from the precinct, absentee voting from nonexistent addresses, voters from other states, people voting on behalf of other people, and a long list that gives an account of a shocking case of election fraud.
Finally, President Trump during the call said, “The bottom line is that when you add it all up and then start adding, you know, 300,000 fake ballots.”
Basically, during the call President Trump sought to make his position clear, assuring that had it not been for outrageous election fraud, he would have been the clear winner of the state of Georgia.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and President Trump’s campaign lawyer Cleta Mitchell also participated in the conversation.
Georgia Republican President David Shafer announced that President Trump and his team filed two lawsuits against Secretary of State Raffensperger for publishing the confidential conversation.
“President @realDonaldTrump has filed two lawsuits—federal and state—against @GaSecofState. The telephone conference call @GaSecofState secretly recorded was a ‘confidential settlement discussion’ of that litigation that is still pending,” Shafer reported in a Twitter message.
Shafer continued, “The audio published by @TheWashingtonPost is heavily edited and omits the stipulation that all discussions were for the purpose of settling litigation and confidential under federal and state law.”
