Well this one sort of flew under the radar didn’t it? That’s because the leftist main-stream media very, desperately and quietly retracted it. During the second farce impeachment of President Donald Trump we heard nothing but howls of condemnation based on the Washington Post and CNN’s breathlessly false reporting that President Trump pressured Georgia officials to “find the fraud”. The Washington Post was forced to issue a correction on this mid-March.
According to The Hill,
“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,” the Post said Thursday in a 129-word correction published atop the story.
“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.'”
In a story released March 17th here at The GOP Times, we laid it out: “These claims were cited by leftist outlets to an “anonymous source” (read as: they were total bullshit). The audio confirms that Trump made no such statements nor any others that could be considered inappropriate for the entirety of the call.
President Trump’s call and tone, especially taken into context with his call with Secretary of State Raffensperger only serves to highlight that the President was deeply concerned with the irregularities in Georgia’s process and the serious allegations of electoral fraud, furthermore he was keenly aware of all that was riding on this single state’s election.”
People Still Buy The Political Assassination of Trump Even Though It Was Retracted
What is truly sad about this is that even after the “correction” as the Washington Post refers to it, the damage has already been done, the narrative is out there and the leftists will not believe anything else.

The twitter comments on the Daily Wire’s tweet alone are disturbing indicators that the Democrat-Socialists will not even accept the truth from their own sources. Twitter user @alreadygreatMD wrote “We all heard the phone calls. One quote does not erase Trumps pressure to overturn a fair election. #GOPStealsOurVotes #GOPLiesAboutEverything“, @daddysboy58 wrote “Fact is tump(sic) is on tape illegally tying to pressure Georgia into changing the votes.” Many twitter check-marked leftists semantically tried to defend the Washington Posts action as “Correction” no “Retraction”, obtusely missing the point. They lied, and the Democrats used those lies as evidence, and all of them did so KNOWINGLY.
Here is the actual exchange between President Trump and Investigator Watson which exonerates him and condemns CNN and Washington Post,
President Trump said: “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 said on the call.
“I hope you go back two years as opposed to just checking one against the other because that would just be sort of a signature check that doesn’t mean anything. But if you go back two years, and if you can get to [Fulton County], you are going to find things that are unbelievable. The dishonesty that we’ve heard from them Right? You know just good sources, really good sources. but Fulton is the mother lode you know as the expression goes, Fulton County.”
“If you go back two years or four years you’re going to see a completely different signature. But hopefully uh you know I will when the right answer comes out you’ll be praised. I mean I don’t know why, you know, they’ve made it so hard. They will be praised, people will say ‘great’ because that’s what it’s about that ability to check into and to make it right. Because everyone knows it’s wrong. There’s just no way”
Investigator Watson answered: “I can assure you that our team and the [Georgia Bureau of Investigation], that we are only interested in the truth and finding the information that is based on the facts. We’ve been working 12-16 hour days and, you know, we’re working through it. So I can assure you that.”
Don’t believe us? Here’s the full call audio, check it out for yourself. “Retracted” or “Corrected” or “Caught” it doesn’t matter what you call it. WaPo and CNN knowingly printed lies about President Trump, and the Democrats knowingly used those lies as evidence against him during their second attempt to impeach him. There need to be consequences for this.
