Wash Po Admits It Was All Fake News Issues MASSIVE Correction About Trump Phone Call With Georgia Official
It was all a lie that was used to form a Democrat narrative.
In Decemember the Washington Post published a report claiming that then-President Trump told Frances Watson, chief investigaotr of the Georgia secretary of State’s office to “find the fraud” and that she would be a “national hero” if she did.
It turns out that was fake news.
From the Washington Post:
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 Post’s article now reads at the top of the story. “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,” the correction continued. “He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’”

The Post has also changed the headline, text in the original report, and removed “quotes misattributed to Trump.”
The misquotes made by the Washington Post prompted the Fulton county District Attorney Fani Willis to start a criminal investigation surrounding the phone call; looks like that investigation is going to up in smoke.
It turns out that President Trump never said “find the votes” and that it was all a lie created by the Washington Post.

There are two current investigations that are ongoing in Georgia based on the Washington Post report, it appears the newspaper is making the corrections now before those investigation conclude.
