SURPRISE! That Washington Post Story About Trump Pressuring Georgia Election Officials Was Garbage

Remember after the 2020 election when the Washington Post ran a big story about Trump supposedly pressuring election officials in Georgia to find fraud?

It turns out it was all garbage. Naturally, we’re only finding this out now.

It’s another classic example of fake news.

Townhall reports:

The Washington Post Story About Trump ‘Pressuring’ Georgia Election Officials Was Total Garbage

The Washington Post issued a stunning “correction” Monday afternoon about President Donald Trump’s December 2020 phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and his chief investigator Frances Watkins.

The paper originally claimed Trump “pressured a Georgia elections investigator in a separate call legal experts say could amount to obstruction” and said the investigator needed to “find the votes.” Now the paper says those “precise words” weren’t used and quotes were “misattributed” to Trump. From the story, bolding is mine:

Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source.

Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.

The media just lies and lies and lies and gets away with it.

And now to make matters worse, they are bending over backwards to cover for Biden.
