If Only Trump Had Not Tweeted!
Meet Brad Raffensperger. Take a moment and listen to all three clips. The first is at Crooks and Liars.
In an interview with 11Alive reporter Brendan Keefe, the reporter asked Raffensperger directly:
“If the president hadn’t tweeted, and tweeted something that was false, would we have ever heard that call recording?”
Brad: “No, it was a private conversation as far as I was concerned. He broke privacy when he put out a tweet, but then his tweet was false,”
Oh. So being threatened by Trump to throw the election — TO COMMIT A FEDERAL CRIME — would have been “just between us boys” if Trump hadn’t tweeted his usual lies? Was this about feeling dissed?
“If President Trump hadn’t tweeted out anything and would’ve stayed silent, we would’ve stayed silent as well. And that would’ve just been a conversation between him and I, man to man, and that would’ve been just fine with us. But he’s the one that had to put it out on Twitter.”I Wouldn’t Have Released The Call If Trump Hadn’t Lied, Crooks and Liars, Susie Madrak

And meet this Brad Raffensperger. “I do not know how the 1 hour conversation got out there.
In an interview with NBC’s Blayne Alexander, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger discusses his phone call with President Trump. Raffensperger denies knowing how the audio was released and firmly pushes back on the president’s claims of voter fraud in the state.
And another Brad Raffensperger? A Chameleon perhaps?
Earlier in 2020, Brad’s department purged 198,000 voters from Georgia’s voting rolls due to their moving. Greg Palast of Rolling Stone found few had actually moved by working with the USPS.
Meanwhile on January 5th, the Georgia Senate Vote is going on statewide.
The G卐P: Party of Hate® needs to die.
So, why has Raffensperger, good Republican operative that he is, not played along with Trump? I don’t doubt for a second that he would have cheated if the right opportunity had arisen since he’s already shown himself to be unscrupulous, not to mention that cheating seems to be rule #1 in the Republican play book nowadays. So maybe he figured he might face consequences for “misplacing” Democratic votes or other forms of cheating not easily hidden behind the veil of plausible deniability (like purging voter rolls)?
Even a rat will leave a sinking ship.
i’m afraid Ron has the answer.
they opposed Trump when they wanted the job themselves.
when he won they saw that he could be a useful idiot enacting their policies and absorbing the blame.
now he has become both dangerous and a liabiity and a loser.
time to change the tune. but not the dance.
i don’t know if “both this and that and the other thing” is bad grammar, but to my ear it sounds like the most natural way to say it.
noam chomsky, where are you when i need you?
