Trump defends ‘PERFECT’ Georgia phone calls amid probe, cites debunked WaPo report to prove his case

As the Democrats focus their single-minded attention on former President Donald Trump’s alleged attempt to overturn Georgia’s election results, Trump continues to defend two calls he made to the Peach State.

Citing a Washington Post report on one of the calls in question — and the subsequent retractions that came after the reporting was proven to be false — President Trump took to his social media platform of choice, Truth Social, to make his case.

“BOTH of my phone calls to Georgia were PERFECT,” Trump stated. “I had an absolute right to make them &, in fact, the story on the one call was given a retraction, or apology, by the Washington Post because they were given terribly false information about it, & when they heard the actual call, they realized that their story was wrong.”

“Thank you to the W.P.,” he added.

“I, as does anyone else (just look at the Democrats!), have the absolute right to challenge the results of an Election,” Trump maintained. “This one, CORRUPT, RIGGED, & STOLEN!”

 

Months after The Washington Post published a report by Amy Gardner headlined, “Trump pressured a Georgia elections investigator in a separate call legal experts say could amount to obstruction,” WaPo was forced to check themselves.

“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 correction reads. “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,” WaPo admits. “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.'”

Also corrected was the headline, “to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.”

In essence, the WaPo retraction disputes the Dem’s unrelenting narrative that, when he wasn’t attempting to wrestle control of The Beast from his Secret Service driver, an unhinged, unstable, and definitely dangerous Donald Trump was on the phone making treasonous demands of an elected Georgian official.

On Tuesday, former Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) were among seven Trump “advisers and allies” to receive subpoenas from Fulton County, Ga., District Attorney Fani T. Willis in her ongoing criminal investigation of alleged election interference by Trump and his associates, according to The New York Times.

“The move was the latest sign that the inquiry has entangled a number of prominent members of Mr. Trump’s orbit, and may cloud the future for the former president,” The Times stated.

And, of course, as with the Jan. 6 Committee hearings, that is the true point of Fulton County’s probe into Trump’s calls to Georgia.

Take it from former Trump White House advisor Peter Navarro, who was dragged out of a D.C. airport in handcuffs for failing to respond to a Jan. 6 subpoena.

“They have only one mission,” he told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson of the Jan. 6 Committee. “To concoct a fake hoax around January 6 based on criminal charges against Trump to prevent him from running for re-election.”
