First half of Trump’s call with Georgia’s Republican secretary of state

First half of Trump's call with Georgia's Republican secretary of state 1

 

In excerpts from an hourlong phone call, President Donald Trump pushed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" votes to overturn the election results after his loss to President-elect Joe Biden, according to an audio recording of a phone call obtained by CNN and first reported by the Washington Post. The White House declined to comment to CNN. CNN has reached out to Raffensperger.
Astonishing new evidence of a desperate President Donald Trump caught on tape trying to steal the election exposes the depth of his corruption and makes his Republican Capitol Hill allies complicit in his bid to thwart the will of voters.
In a fresh abuse of power, Trump tried to bully a top Georgia GOP official into finding votes to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state. The staggering telephone call, audio of which was obtained by CNN and first reported by The Washington Post, amounted to the most serious threat yet posed by his authoritarian instincts to American democracy.
Even before the latest outrage, this week already marked a watershed moment for Biden's coming presidency, a ruptured Republican Party and the integrity of the US political system.
A GOP attempt, for example, to block Congress' certification of Biden's win based on lies and false conspiracy theories about fraud on Wednesday has no chance of succeeding because of the Democratic majority in the House and the lack of a majority to overturn the results in the Senate. But it will further convince millions of Trump voters that the election was rigged. Scores of GOP lawmakers plan to choose the vanquished President and his voters over the cherished principles of free elections in a fracturing that will have lasting consequences for the GOP and the nation.

I like this guy. Welp time to rub one out.

    • Maybe he did because he believes his squirrel eating base will like it. He just wants to stay a couple of steps ahead of the bailiffs, who will be closing in in a couple of years.

    • Reeeeeeeeeeeeee reeeeeeeeee reeeeeeeee reeeeeeeee

  4. Trump tomorrow: “I never had a conversation with the secretary of state in Georgia. I don’t even know the guy.”

    • @Robert Brown Get a new joke.

    • @azul8811  you know, I believe you are correct. Trump has said those things. Even I have said the words -bleach- -injection- –disinfectant-
      -fraud- -votes- – dominion- -Georgia-
      -Etc*
      By the way, do you know how to comprehend a sentence? Do you understand the meaning of the word imply? More importantly, it’s antonym?

      @Wayne Hand he’s a recovered drug addict just like hunter. Unlike trump who sniffles thru a whole after taking coke before a debate debate and calls the Georgia republican to say “I just want to find 11,780 votes” while he’s poppin pills

    • @Tavien Harbison they’ll tell you first hand that they’ll always be a crackhead. 🤷‍♂️

    • Deborah Freedman | January 4, 2021 at 5:55 PM | Reply

      At least Sheen was high, what is Trump’s problem?

    • Tavien Harbison | January 4, 2021 at 7:30 PM | Reply

      @Wayne Hand you obviously don’t have first hand experience with addicts that are recovered

    • @Tavien Harbison most relapse. There is good news,though. These two gentlemen are millionaires and can afford all the crack they can smoke!

      @Jens Raab i think you still can try to impeach him after he leaves office, right? And if dems mop the GA Senate floor, then it’s a possible things to do first in Biden administration.. I don’t really care about Democrats, I don’t…

      But i care about those poor secret service that glued to ex-President when he leaves office, i mean you really want to sacrifice the greatest service man in USA just to guard ex POTUS in jail?? No freaking way, they sacrifice enough to guard him under covid, they already gambling their life for doing the job because some toddler wrap in grandpa body’s is crazy enough to not wearing mask in pandemics time, gtfoh

  17. “Like nobody has ever seen them stuffed before” 😂😂😂😂. I don’t think he could be any more ignorant. You can’t fix stupid! 😂😂😂😂

      You know what’s even scarier? All you Trumpers…. here’s your proof. Just Google “2020 Gallup poll Most Admired in America” Then ask yourselves if you lost fair and square. I dare you…..

    • @Matt Lourer I think it’s pretty safe to say that almost everyone in Washington DC is corrupt, and only out for the betterment of themselves. Democrat or Republican….both parties are a joke at this point. A bad joke…you know the kind, the kind that makes everyone really uncomfortable.

    • That’s right, and Raffensperger is really really stupid. So is CNN to play this for the world to hear how corrupted the election was!

  18. Tr*** “proving” he didn’t lose: They’ve done many polls in Georgia…

    Also Tr*** : Polls are fake! Don’t trust the polls!

    He sounds like a gambling addict desperately trying to convince his bookie he needs two more weeks to pay him off.
