Democrats still want Americans to believe that former President Donald Trump was fomenting distrust of government and potential revolution by claiming the election was “rigged.”
But within the space of a couple of days, Trump has gotten good news regarding elections that should shame his critics.
For one thing, The Washington Post was forced to admit it made-up quotes in a story about Trump’s post-election challenge in Georgia.
The Post, days after the tragic Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, claimed Trump told Georgia’s chief election fraud investigator that see could “find the fraud” in the vote and become “a national hero.”
Yet, a recently released tape of the conversation notes that Trump told the investigator could uncover “dishonesty,” and subsequently, that “when the right answer comes out, you’ll be praised.”
The problem, as happened so often when Trump was in the White House and the media got stories wrong, is that the reporter relied on an anonymous source.
The Post then was forced to post a correction, saying in part, “The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.”
Trump’s other good news, also from Georgia, was that a local judge signaled that he may unseal absentee ballots for review by a watchdog group claiming election fraud. Joe Biden narrowly won Georgia and th lawsuit contends Fulton County election workers fabricated ballots or counted some twice.
Judge Brian Amero said on Monday that he might allow the review for the sake of transparency. Reportedly 30,000 ballots are at issue.
“We want to do this in such a way that dispels rumors and disinformation and sheds light,” Amero said during a hearing. “The devil’s in the details.”
Lastly, in Michigan, which Biden also flipped from Trump, a judge ruled that the state’s Democratic secretary of state violated the law by allowing greater leeway in determining the validity of signatures on absentee ballots.
Her decision, the judge said “places the thumb on the scale in favor of a signature’s validity” without addressing the issue with the Legislature
That ruling reinforced a Trump claim of election wrongdoing in Michigan.
As Breitbart News noted, the “ruling undercuts the Democrat narrative that Republican legal challenges to 2020 election procedures were without merit and had therefore all been rejected by the courts.”
