“Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen,”

Add this to the phone calls made to state election officials to “find” 10,000+1 votes or be prosecuted. (Be a shame for a nice lawyer like you to lose his license…)

Are these “offers they could not refuse”? But they did, evidently.

PS: Growing up in Mafia country these words are eerily reminiscent.

  1. I believe that Trump was saying something to the effect of; there’s probably more than a hundred thousand vote fraud here but I just need you to identify ten thousand. A reasonable request. Exactly what any of us would propose.

    This incident was much like the one with the Ukraine leader where the the media tried to say the mere act of talking on the phone to another leader was the worst thing that ever happened. It’s part of the job, talking to other leaders.

    If just for a week, our media had to tell the truth, well, that would be a very welcome change.

      Anyone with not a scrap of integrity or belief in the Rule of Law, perhaps.

      Threatening officials with lose of livelihood is really extortion and illegal interference in a state election.

    2. “I believe yadda yadda yadda”

      The AG of the United States does not get to “just say the election was corrupt.” He needs evidence and there was NONE. The acting AG understood very well that he was being asked to commit a serious crime which is why he ignored the criminal instruction in question.

      When you hear Trump say “Leave the rest to me” what do you think he could possibly have in mind other than a coup. That is exactly what the military leaders feared he was cooking up. Right out of the Reichstag fire playbook.

      The truth is gradually coming out and the supporters and enablers of sedition are going to have to answer for what they did.

      BTW, your characterization of what Trump did and was impeached for vis a vis extorting Ukraine and making their campaign help a quid pro quo for him to do his duty is a JOKE. It wasn’t “mere talking.” It was criminal extortion.

      1. Yadda. I bet more people accept Trump’s reality than accept yours. And now you’ve got Obama in his third term, a senile president, a vice president nobody likes or respects, and your PR department (the media) is believed by about 10%. Even the smartest people are wondering how the Dems get out of this swamp they built.

        Here’s how Trump sums up things in a recent press release:::::

        “Have you noticed that the Radical Left is now admitting I was right about everything they LIED about before the Election?

        Hydroxychloroquine works.
        The China Virus came from a Chinese lab.
        Hunter Biden’s laptop was real.
        Lafayette Square was not cleared for a photo op.
        The “Russian Bounties” story was fake.
        We did produce vaccines before the end of 2020, in record time I might add.
        Blue state lockdowns didn’t work.
        Schools should be opened.
        Critical Race Theory is a disaster for our schools and our Country.

        Our Southern Border security program was unprecedentedly successful.”

        Only the smartest people can be wrong so continuously.
