Quelle surprise! .... Repugs mad that Raffensperger recorded the call


Republicans are lining up not to denounce President Donald Trump's demand that the Georgia secretary of state commit a crime and invent nearly 12,000 votes be "found" for him. Instead, they're denouncing that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for recording the call.

While Raffensperger hasn't explained his motivations, his lawyer was on the call with him, and that lawyer may have been behind the demand to record the call to protect the Secretary and his office.

Former Rep. Kelli Ward (R-AZ), who is now the chair of the Arizona Republican Party, lashed out at Raffensperger, saying that when the president calls her, she's just honored to talk to him. ..............(more)

No one should talk to Trump without a recording device running.

None of his coconspirators did.

And with crazy dump lawyer saying Pence should face firing squad, this guy was smart to record & release to press!

I'm still slogging through it and it's a complete disgrace.

Trump is a proven liar. It would be insane to be in any conversation with him without recording it. I'd hang up before not recording it.

May none of us ever have to listen to that man's phone calls ever again.

(who am i kidding? we're going to hear about so many phone calls and bank accounts and crimes, it's exhausting)

and not a dictator whose words are not public information.

Republicans cannot comprehend the term "public servant" because they are servants of big business.

They wouldn't be so angry if the conversation didn't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump was dishonorable.

If these Republican fascists think they will fool anyone but their brainwashed cult with this sort of blatant BS, they are more ignorant than I ever imagined.

They are only mad that he got caught, and not with what he said?
