One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers blasted Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for “secretly” recording a “confidential settlement discussion” between the president and himself, and then leaking the audio.
Lawyer Kurt Hilbert was referring to leaked audio of Trump telling the Georgia official, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.” However, only portions of the audio were being shared, rather than the full audio, so it appeared that Trump was trying to convince Raffensperger to be dishonest then that wasn’t the case at all.
Hilbert told Fox News, “We are disappointed that the secretary of state and his staff secretly recorded and released a confidential settlement discussion to settle the two pending lawsuits.”
“While they may think that behavior is appropriate, we do not,” he continued. “Consequently, we will not be commenting on settlement discussions.”
On Sunday, Trump tweeted about his call with the SOS and said, “He was unwilling, or unable, to answer questions such as the ‘ballots under table’ scam, ballot destruction, out of state ‘voters’, dead voters, and more.”
Trump added, “He has no clue!”
I spoke to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger yesterday about Fulton County and voter fraud in Georgia. He was unwilling, or unable, to answer questions such as the “ballots under table” scam, ballot destruction, out of state “voters”, dead voters, and more. He has no clue!
