The Democrats tried to impeach Donald Trump not once, but twice and failed.
Yet, the Democrats and their bedfellows, the corrupt media, are still trying to put Donald Trump in jail.
And, just when you thought the election was over, the media dropped a bombshell on America.
An article in a January issue of The Washington Post told a story of how Donald Trump pressured an investigator in Georgia’s elections department.
The story spread like wildfire.
In the article, Trump was quoted urging the investigator to “find the fraud” and that she would be a “hero” for doing so.
As a result of this story, the District Attorney in Fulton County, Georgia opened an investigation into whether or not Trump obstructed justice.
The Democrats even used these quotes in their articles of impeachment.
This was a huge story and had many believing that former President Donald Trump had gotten himself involved in some shady bribery.
Fast forward two months, and Americans are now learning that the entire story was based on lies and made-up quotes.
Donald Trump never said those things to the investigator. It was all made up.
The Washington Post ran with a story that they knew would harm Trump because they wanted to be the heroes that brought him down.
According to a lengthy correction released by the post, an audiotape of the call between President Trump and the investigator did in fact exist, but Trump never told the investigator to “find the fraud” or that they would be a “hero” for honoring his wishes.
Those quotes were completely made up.
“Correction: 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. 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.’ A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump,” the lengthy correction issued by The Post read.
There is audio to prove it, but that doesn’t matter to the Fake News Media; they run what they want, especially if it will in some way take down Trump and his supporters.
Five other so-called media outlets supposedly “confirmed” The Post’s reporting based on their own anonymous sourcing.
In the world of news, the only way that happens is if the same source shopped the fake quotes to other outlets, and they all just accepted them at face value without ever confirming details or accuracy.
But, again, we’re dealing with a media that is in bed with the Democrats, so anything that takes Conservatives down is fair game in their book.
Of course, now The Post says that they’re fulfilling their responsibility by issuing a correction.
How nice of them.
It’s a full two months after the story ran. It had already set in motion the belief among some Americans that Trump was involved in criminal activity in Georgia.
The apology is a dollar short and a day late.
The damage has already been done.
This is quite possibly the most significant example of actual media disinformation we’ve seen to date.
