The Washington Post reported Sunday that they had obtained clips of a phone conversation between President Donald Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

The Post published just four minutes of what they say is an hour-long conversation between Trump and Georgia election officials.

Here is the audio from the call:

On the recording, Trump appears to insist that he won the state by an overwhelming majority, and asks Raffensperger to “recalculate” the vote count.

“I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Trump says, though from the conversation it appears he believes those votes were “stolen” in incidents of election fraud, not that he believes Raffensperger could manufacture the votes out of thin air.

“All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state,” Trump states. “Flipping the state is a great testament to our country; it’s a testament that they can admit to a mistake. A lot of people think it wasn’t a mistake, it was much more criminal than that. But it’s a big problem in Georgia and it’s not a problem that’s going away.”

Trump goes on to say that there is “no way I lost Georgia. There’s no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes,” and that Raffensperger should “be careful of the political corruption” in places like Fulton County, where he claims ballots were “shredded” and where he suggests that voting machine manufacturer Dominion “is moving fast to get rid of their machinery.”

Raffensperger and other officials on the call pushed back on the president’s claims, but Trump insisted that Raffensperger and his staff take action on vote fraud allegations.

“Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong,” Raffensperger says. “We have to stand by our numbers; we believe our numbers are right.”

“So, tell me, Brad. What are we going to do? We won the election and it’s not fair to take it away from us like this. And it’s going to be very costly in many ways,” Trump concludes.

“The people of Georgia know that this was a scam, and because of what you’ve done to the president, a lot of people aren’t going out to vote [in the Tuesday runoff elections],” Trump elaborated. “A lot of Republicans are going to vote negative because they hate what you did to the president.”

“Everyone’s going to look very good if the truth comes out,” Trump added, finally. “And the real truth is I won by 400,000 votes at least. That’s the real truth.”

The president, clearly unsatisfied with the call, referenced it on Twitter Sunday morning, accusing Raffensperger of turning a blind eye to corruption.

“I spoke to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger yesterday about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling, or unable, to answer questions such as the ‘ballots under table’ scam, ballot destruction, out of state ‘voters’, dead voters, and more. He has no clue!” the president said on social media.

“The Governor, @BrianKempGA, and his puppet Lt. Governor, @GeoffDuncanGA, have done less than nothing,” Trump added.

Looks like they need to find somebody to run against Brian Kemp next cycle. I'm ready to vote him out over this.

Raffensperger should start looking for apartments in Belize or Paraguay. He's toast. He's looking at $50,000 in attorneys' fees and the likelihood that he'll lose and be liable for a couple of million in damages. And then there's the likelihood that the Georgia or FBI authorities will be knocking on his door and charging him with crimes. He can cough up the couple of million in kickbacks he got from Dominion for buying all those crooked vote counting machines and pay it over to Trump immediately to minimize the duration of the pain of litigation. Political idiots suppose that PDT is stupid. Yet he made billions in the New York real estate and construction business, fighting or negotiating with politicians, the mafia, the unions, and many others. The President set a trap for Raffensperger, and he didn't just step in it, he jumped into it. Complete fool, crooked fool.

So... anyone believe the relevant county in Georgia had anywhere near 100%- '900' of absentee military votes go to Biden? In what universe?

RINO Raffensberger should have been fired months ago by Kemp. We need to start a recall on Kemp and Raffensberger. Both are worthless cowards unwilling to uphold the rule of law. And the ridiculous deal Kemp made with Stacey Abrams tells all. What a clueless move. He gave Stacey Abrams a license to steal. And nothing has changed since the general election. Dems will attempt to steal both of the Senate seats, too. Mark my words.

I think Trump released the entire call so he could make his really great case for fraud and the Georgia officials had no defense and looked really weak and it was obvious that these creeps know there was huge fraud because they refused to release any evidence to Trump’s attorneys that could prove it for weeks. Listen to the entire call not the clips in the MSM.

Funny isn't it? Dinesh D'Souza gets a $130K fine for financially donating to a long time friend's political campaign and was threatened with prison YET Soros donates millions to prosecutors and others to vote the way he dictates...Raffensperger being one of them no doubt and no-one does anything about it. As I said waaaaay back in the 60's Soros should have been deported then but now it is too late. Now he should go the way of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg...electric chair and as well those he has bribed should suffer the same fate Raffensperger.

Recording a phone conversation without the other's consent or knowledge I believe is ILLEGAL, especially the president. Charges need to be brought up against that commie cocksucker immediately.

True Patriots need to be prepared! The lying, cheating, traitorous actions by our representatives, selling the American people out while padding their pockets with foreign money will not stop until the American people stop it! This is “TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION,” exactly what our forefathers fought and died for in the Revolution War 1763-1775. If we are truly sick of it all, we will rise up and take our country back or we will sit back and do zero! What will it be?

You know that if Obama were caught doing this, all of you would be shitting yourselves, lighting up your torches and vowing to hang him from the nearest tree. ADMIT IT. What a bunch of self-deluded, brainwashed cretins you all are. It's pathetic and it's why this country has lost so much of the respect it used to have from around the world. Not that a single one of you will see that - or want to, LOL.

They are at it again. Can't even let the President have a conversation without using it to defame him. Well I think this time it will backfire on the ones who don't like Trump because it just makes the Conservatives more and more determined to NOT ACCEPT BIDEN AS PRESIDENT. CONGRESS do the right thing on JANUARY 6 and makes our DAY!

Raffensperger needs to marched in front of a firing squad. He's clearly bought and paid for by China, and I'm absolutely sure this "clip" was edited to portray President Trump (who DID win Georgia, and numerous other "contested" states) in the worst possible light. Treason is a crime, and Brad Raffensperger is indisputably guilty of it.

Trump has been playing against a stacked deck even before being elected. Far to many our our "public servants" in BOTH political parties wanted no part of a Trump presidency. He would put a stop to much of their self serving government policies put in to make them and their family even richer and more powerful. Their illegal deals with other nations would be exposed so he had to be stopped no matter what the cost. If they had to destroy what's left of America to get rid of Trump they would do so. Under no circumstances could Trump be allowed to be re-elected. The media played a big part in this and will continue to do so after China Joe becomes President. Nothing negative will be printed or said about Joe or Harris. That appears to be the future of America for the next 4 years !

It was all over Sky News here in the UK tonight!!!! Doing their best to try to make it look as if Trump is the one trying to ''Steal'' the election through manipulating the vote!!! Brad ''Spaff-ensperger'' is nothing more than just another 'bought and paid for'' RINO POS scumbag!!!

I think recording anyone without their knowledge is against the law. Not sure what or who has bought Raffensperger off but he is NOT a Republican.

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.”
