New audio of phone call that vindicates Trump was DELETED by Georgia investigator, found in her ‘trash’
The media conspiracy against Trump became a lot more serious on Monday when the Washington Post retracted its January story claiming that President Donald Trump had pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find the fraud” in the 2020 election and said that he’d be a “national hero” if he did.
A recording of the call definitively proved that the quotes cited by theWashington Post, and then parroted by other outlets, were never actually said by the president at all.
The Washington Post claimed its quotes were confirmed by an anonymous source, and at least five major news outlets claimed to independently confirm that Trump said things he never said.
- NBC News reported it “confirmed The Post’s characterization of the Dec. 23 call through a source familiar with the conversation.”
- USA Today claimed a “Georgia official speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal matters confirmed the details of the call.”
- ABC News reported: “President Donald Trump phoned a chief investigator in Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office asking the official to ‘find the fraud’ and telling this person they would be a ‘national hero’ for it, an individual familiar with the matter confirmed to ABC News.”
- PBS NewsHour and CNN likewise appeared to claim they independently “confirmed” the story through their own anonymous sources.
