“If President Trump wouldn’t have tweeted out anything and would’ve stayed silent, we would’ve stayed silent as well,” Raffensperger said. “If you’re going to put out stuff that we don’t believe is true, then we will respond in kind.” 

“A day after the call, Trump said in a tweet that Raffensperger was “unwilling, or unable, to answer questions” about the president’s baseless claims of widespread fraud in the November election.”


Gabriel Sterling, top election manager and Republican had a news conference today going over every point in the phone call. All the lies by Trump and his staff were investigated and refuted by GA officials and GBI long before.

  1. I watched Gabriel Sterling a while ago when he was going through what they have had to deal with and all the stupidity of what different people said was ‘proof’ of fraud. I watched Mr. Sterling slowly go through and do it again for anyone who wanted more explanation on different clips of video. The news conference isn’t going to satisfy those who don’t want to be set straight, but not much can be done about that.

    You could see the frustration in this man’s demeanor and in his voice. He simply must be thinking that there is really a bunch of ignorant people out there in his own party – starting with the guy he voted for and THAT guys’ supporters.

    1. Again, inconvenient facts get in the way of the cult attempting to destroy democracy.

      Your use of the word “ignorant” is apt, but tactful, given the plain and increasingly clear evidence of incompetence and guilt.

    2. I’m glad you and Mr. Rothman mentioned Gabriel Sterling’s press conference. It gave me the opportunity to look it up on YouTube and see what happened for myself:

      Sterling did a superb job defending against the allegations. What remains is for his office to release the data that supports the defense he offered. And, thankfully, he said he was prepared to do so.

  2. RE: “Trump broke ‘confidentiality’ when he tweeted lies after the phone call.”

    Did he (break confidentiality)? I expect the law suit will decide.

    I’d also suggest that accusing Trump of tweeting “lies” is dishonest.

    I only mention it because I wish the Forum would aspire to a higher level of discourse.

    1. Raffensperger and the attorney responded to all of Trump’s allegations.

      Trump tweeted they did not.

      It is on record.

      The video was not going to be released until Trump made that tweet to 80 million people.

      Pretty simple.

      As far as lies, Gabriel Sterling addressed them again and the “data” Trump was spewing was debunked long ago and repeated again.

      Please go to the Antarctic to verify the penguins.

        Where is the lie you claim? In the audio of the phone call, GA representatives said they couldn’t answer questions or provide data by law. Do you deny they said that?

        1. They answered him and said their data found no problems. Old news. If Trump doesn’t accept the truth, that is his problem which has now become a national problem because of his rhetoric.

          Simple.

          Saying that the moon is green cheese doesn’t make it so.

          Trump lost, it was verified and certified. Asking to “find” 12k more votes is pressuring to commit a felony. Extortion really, since he threaten the careers and freedoms of Raffensperger and Germany.

        2. …”they couldn’t answer questions or provide data by law. ”

          Um, doesn’t the phrase “by law” mean anything in the Trumpiverse?

          Again only laws that are convenient.

      I spoke to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger yesterday about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling, or unable, to answer questions such as the “ballots under table” scam, ballot destruction, out of state “voters”, dead voters, and more. He has no clue!

      All those phony allegations have been addressed long before and repeatedly. The answers by GA said so.
      Trump is full of poop.

      Attacking GA required proof and the tape showed that and that is why it was released.

    Uh… I think I know what you meant, but…

    Obviously, they use a Gerber Rule for setting their integrity bar when it comes to disenfranchisement, but even still Trump managed to violated even a Ga Republican’s sense of integrity. Limbo!

          1. One of my first photo shoots was for a hospital data system back in 1978 or so. Room full of computers with reels that stopped and started as if epileptic.

            I did not get my first Apple until about 1995 or so.

            Hard to fathom how relatively peaceful things were compared to “digitally instant” everything today.

            Sigh.

          2. Quit teaching in the field a couple of years ago and had to read/research daily before I did to keep up with the young PhDs. The pace of change, particularly in the last 10/12 years was insane. A young person’s game…
