Fox News host Martha MacCallum pressed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday evening over whether he approved the release of the weekend phone call between himself and President Donald Trump.

“Did you OK the release of the phone call? Did you say, ‘OK, let’s release the audio of the phone call’?” MacCallum asked the state official.

“The information is out there. It is what it is,” Raffensperger responded.

“That’s not an answer to my question,” MacCallum continued. “Are you going to answer my question? Were you aware of the decision, and were you in favor of the decision to release the phone call, sir?

“I think that we had to respond to the president’s Twitter, and we responded with the facts that were in the call,” Raffensperger said. “That’s how it got out there. So now the world can make up their own decisions, listen to the whole thing — both sides of the aisle, right down the middle. And they can make their own decisions.”

WATCH:

Shortly after the November election, incumbent Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler called for Raffensperger’s resignation, claiming he failed to provide “honest and transparent elections.” Perdue and Loeffler face a tough runoff election Tuesday that will decide the Republican Senate majority’s fate.

“Senator Perdue still owes my wife an apology for all the death threats she got after he asked for my resignation,” Raffensperger told MacCallum. “I have not heard one peep from that man since. If he wants to call me, face to face, man to man — I’ll talk to him, off the record. But he hasn’t done that.”

Just another RINO sucking up to the Democrats. His political career should be over, if the GA people are paying attention. We don't need these kinds of people holding Republican seats. He should be ashamed of accusing Perdue for his wife getting death threats. She is getting them, because of his actions.

Does he have a "501c3" corporation? If so.. he has taken money... is there an off shore account? Then he took Chinese money. What is 'Smartmatic' and why did China buy a majority of the company October 3rd for 400 million... paid to "Offshore"??

It makes me sick how the Dems always view themselves so righteous. This man allowed an election to be stolen! Then he illegally records a private presidential conversation! And since he knows he's recording it and that he'll leak it to the press, as is proven by the fact that he wouldn't say he didn't, he was careful about what he said while the president just kept blurting out truthful accusations that he may have been more careful about if he knew he was being recorded. You dems are demented, hence your nickname. You live in another reality, one that you create where your crimes aren't crimes which is why you hate God. May God avenge Trump tomorrow!

There is no "Off The Record" with this guy. He has a record of not honoring his word. The proof is the reason for this article.

'“Senator Perdue still owes my wife an apology for all the death threats she got after he asked for my resignation,” Raffensperger told MacCallum. ' Mr. Raffensperger, Did Senator Perdue make a death threat to your wife? I think not. Buck up and be a man instead of the measly mouse you are. Why not blame Perdue's grandmother for the death threats OTHER PEOPLE made. I have three words for you: "You're an ass".

Sounds like Raff is a very insecure guy. Sniffing while saying Sen Perdue didn’t call him back.
Leo January 5, 2021

How is Perdue responsible for his wife getting death threats? His wife is probably getting death threats because he committed fraud and people are fed up. Maybe he should apologize to his wife for being a corrupt asshole and causing her shame. Lying sack of shit.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
