New audio of Trump asking election investigator to overturn results

 

In a phone call to the Georgia secretary of state's office in December, then-President Donald Trump urged a top investigator to find fraud in the 2020 presidential election, telling her that she would be "praised" for overturning results that were in favor of Joe Biden, according to audio of the call obtained by CNN.
The report is the latest example of Trump's extraordinary efforts to influence Georgia election officials as they certified the results, even though there is no evidence of widespread fraud in the election. Trump's actions have drawn the attention of Georgia's Republican secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, as well as a Fulton County prosecutor who has launched a criminal investigation.
"When the right answer comes out, you'll be praised," Trump tells Frances Watson, the chief investigator at the Georgia secretary of state's office, in a six-minute conversation on December 23, according to the Journal.
"I won everything but Georgia. And I won Georgia, I know that. By a lot. And the people know it. And something happened there. Something bad happened," Trump reportedly told Watson during the phone call.
The Washington Post was the first to report on details of the call. On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal published a recording of the call that it obtained.

  1. I like how the investigator is just like “Right….right….right” – probably polishing her nails while listening to that orange boob ramble.

    1. How Trump constructs his Dec 23 call to Francis Watson:
      1) Trump complements Watson at the start of the call, and Watson says that Mark Meadows had visited her the day before to talk about election fraud.
      2) Trump: ‘Something happened. Something bad happened’ ‘They dropped ballots. They dropped all these ballots’ ‘The dishonesty, that we’ve heard from – just good sources. Really good sources’ ‘I won Georgia, I know that, by a lot, and the people know it.’ Trump claimed he won by ‘hundreds of thousands of votes’ and that Georgia residents were ‘so angry’.
      3) Trump told the investigator she had ‘the most important job in the country right now’
      Now the instruction:
      4) ‘You’re going to find things that are going to be unbelievable’. He told her she would be ‘praised’ when the ‘right answer comes out.’ ‘Whatever you can do, Frances, it’s a great thing’ and then Trump references to January 6. ‘We have that date of the 6th, which is a very important date’.

    2. New York Times / 3/20/21: ‘Where Europe Went Wrong in Its Vaccine Rollout, [and Why Trump Administration’s Warp Speed won the day.’]

      The calls began in December, as the United States prepared to administer its first batches of Covid-19 vaccine. Even then, it was clear that the European Union was a few weeks behind, and its leaders wanted to know what they could learn from their American counterparts.

      The questions were the same, from President Emmanuel Macron of France, President Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission, and Alexander De Croo, the prime minister of Belgium.

      “How did you do it?” Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the Trump Administration’s vaccine czar, recalled them asking on the calls. “And what do you think we missed?”

      Since then, the rollout gap between Europe and the United States has only widened, and some of the countries hardest hit early in the pandemic are facing a deadly third wave of infections. France, large parts of Italy, and other regions are back in lockdown. Roughly 20,000 Europeans die of Covid-19 each week.

      Brussels, by comparison, took a conservative, budget-conscious approach that left the open market largely untouched. And it has paid for it.

      In short, the answer today is the same as it was in December, said Dr. Slaoui. The bloc shopped for vaccines like a customer. The United States basically went into business with the drugmakers, spending much more heavily to accelerate vaccine development, testing and production.

      “They assumed that simply contracting to acquire doses would be enough,” recalled Dr. Slaoui, whom President Donald J. Trump hired to speed the vaccine development. “In fact what was very important was to be a full, active partner in the development and the manufacturing of the vaccine. And to do so very early.”

      ‘Not Equipped for a Gunfight’
      The European Union trailed the United States and Britain from the start.

      Washington had already spent billions on clinical trials and manufacturing by the time Europe decided to pool its resources and negotiate as a bloc. In mid-June, the European Commission, the bloc’s executive branch, announced a joint vaccine purchase with a $3.2 billion pot.

      In Washington, Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s vaccine program, had a $10 billion budget. European officials say it’s unfair to compare the two figures because neither amount is a complete picture of all the money spent on vaccines. But there is no dispute that in Washington, officials had decided that money was no object if vaccines could avert the economic cost of a lockdown. Europe, on the other hand, was on a tight budget, so its negotiators chased cheaper doses.

      “Pricing has been important since the beginning,” Sandra Gallina, the E.U.’s main vaccine negotiator, told lawmakers in February. “We are talking about taxpayers’ money.”

    3. White Liberal Supremacists whom make up the majority of the Democrat Party are extremely toxic and dangerous for Black Americans . The very wise and prescient Malcolm X said it best about White Liberals and CNN’s Van Jones, self-declared Marxist, added to his warning :

      “The White Liberal differs from the white Conservative only in one way; the Liberal is more deceitful, more hypocritical, than the Conservative. Both want power, but the Liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Black Man’s friend and benefactor and by winning the friendship and support of the Black Man , the Liberal is able to use the Black Man as a pawn or a weapon in this political football game, that is constantly raging, between the Liberals and the Conservatives. The American Blacks are nothing, but a political football.”

      -Malcolm X , 1963

      “It is not the racist white person with the white hood that we have to worry about. It is the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park … she weaponized race like she had been trained by the Aryan nation”

    1. @Joe Shome Jail? Maga hat I’m talking about was a kid waiting for bus..

All while believing they are the tolerant side.. you got see how foooked up that is.. no? you cant still believe their bs,! Or maybe you just want to be led.

    2. @Angela Reminiscenza …says somebody who voted a whole criminal gang into the WH. Yes, communists are criminals and you love it.

    3. How Trump constructs his Dec 23 call to Francis Watson:
      1) Trump complements Watson at the start of the call, and Watson says that Mark Meadows had visited her the day before to talk about election fraud.

  2. Even though most of us want to see him held accountable, it’s disheartening because it almost feels like he won’t ever be truly held accountable for his actions

    1. I agree but the rules have changed now. He can’t hide behind Presidential immunity anymore and he knows it!

    2. 57 votes guilty 43 vote not guilty in any other country in the world he is guilty except in the senate of the USA

    3. @Jav C they tried to impeach him twice cause the man uttered the words “drain the swamp” . that scares many curry it politicians. Then they will do anytging and make up anything to get u out of office and make sure u never get to run again. Russian collusion? Innocent. Attack on the capital? Actually it was extremists from both sides that planned this ahead.

    4. @9ine6ix 4ourtwenty anyone who still listen to what their TV says are sheep indeed. People let that man live rent free in their head because of what the TV says. God forbid anyone does research anymore if they have questions

    5. Every time they investigated Trump, they ended uncovering crimes by Democrats and Washington bureaucrats.
      What do you think will happen if they investigated this time?

  3. It Sounds Like he has been drinking and also he is being very strange, I would not expect this from a honest Person , trump sounds creepy weard he should of never been president trump was for trump He didn’t Care about the American People

    1. @LilMissTravelPants lefties invented new word to escape every discussion. So what if Hillary is whining about stolen election and Russia conspiracy for 5 years!!? Whataboutism has no room!”

    2. @Shane Guinn read Washington time they had to retract the arrival on the Trump Georgia conversation. Because the real tape was found in a garbage can by her desk. And as usual the media only played what they want the lame brains want to hear.

    1. @tzamuch knepelmacher Show us your posts between 2016 and 2020 where you called on Trump and his fans to STOP WITH THIS HATE.

      There’s a reason Trump’s averaged approval rating never broke 50% — he was the most brazenly hateful POTUS in history. His supporters don’t get to cry foul now.

    1. @Jorge Andrade, Cod Nurmberg „6. Gradul de risc care trebuie asumat nu ar trebui să depășească niciodată cel determinat de importanța umanitară a problemei care trebuie rezolvată prin experiment. ” Vă rugăm să luați în considerare IFR pentru variolă și COVID: 30% față de (să fim „generoși”) 0,20% – 1%. În opinia mea, nu putem fi siguri că un număr real de efecte adverse și decese sunt raportate și publicate … Cu toate acestea, este o chestiune de timp. Sperăm că nu prea mulți oameni vor muri sau vor deveni literalmente infirmi între timp.

    2. @ZrACKs ultRa And now this “news story” has been confirmed to be a complete lie. SMH, democrats.

    3. The real story is this was a story on no facts therefore it’s been reported as fake he never said what they accused him of

    1. The ignorance on this one is your side. Clearly you didnt listen to the full audio recording. This is a spliced video. Trump before this listed off a bunch of numbers of supposed illegal voters and then said GIVEN these numbers I dont care if you change the voter to me winning by one or 100k but these illegal votes need to be taken into account. I know CNN is making him look bad but when u look at it at face value and the context he places it in, he WAS NOT telling the governor to Change the votes without reasoning

    2. @Abdul Jabars YES, a dangerous cult religion, which has taken over our government, news outlets, and Big tech. and wants to punish anyone that opposes their views. I am glad to see Someone with some common sense in this chat.

    1. Because this is a man whom has made no secret of his toddler-like temper tantrums and inability to accept actual reality, I’m guessing that he is placated quite often. Probably even by those actually in his corner! So he can’t comprehend that he’s being strung along.
      Example: “Oh yes Donald, you’re an amazing lover and companion,” from Melania.

    2. A lifetime of never being told “no” will do that to a man. Sarcasm? I’ve never heard of him but he sounds like a nice guy

  4. Hes talking about the certification of Biden and not the mob riot. I can’t stand to see him getting away with his many many crimes. If that were you or me, we would be locked up talking to a lawyer…

  5. All of the “ums” shows how completely uncomfortable the Georgia Offical was with Donnie’s shakedown.

    1. Once again, you’ve been duped by more fake news from CNN. The story has been retracted. You libs never learn…..

  6. Interesting what lie can we tell about this call like the Georgia one? “Find the fraud” never happened

  7. The cloudy ship literally sniff because custard startlingly compete without a large blizzard. awesome, nice substance
