Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol said that he was pressured by Trump to “find” 11,780 votes in Georgia – the amount needed for Trump to win the state.

The committee played an audio recording of Trump’s claims to Raffensperger, with the Republican secretary of state explaining how every claim made by Trump was false.

“The numbers are the numbers, and the numbers don’t lie,” Raffensperger said, and three separate recounts in Georgia resulted in the same conclusion: Joe Biden had won the election in the Peach State.

  1. And current (Democrat) White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had tweeted that the Republicans had stolen the 2018 Georgia election away from Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams. So if the current Democrat White House does not trust the Georgia elections, why should the Republicans have to trust it? In fact, Democrat candidate Stacey Abrams filed a lawsuit even filed a lawsuit over the way elections were held (trial opened April 2022).

    Further, what I remember was that at the State Farm Arena where votes were being counted, the Republican poll watchers had come out with a complaint that they were tricked into leaving (based on being told that the counting was shutting down for the night and everyone had to leave, but found out only later that counting had continued in their absence). This same Raffensperger came out with a declaration that no such thing took place. But when security video showed that indeed such trickery took place, Raffensperger changed his story and pretended that it did not matter (that the Republican appointed watchers were absent) because because (allegedly) government election official observers had come to observe. In other words, he used a game of semantics to get around the problem.

  2. “The NUMBERS a don’t lie”

    Coming from the mouth of corrupt politicians

    Biden got 84,000,000 (84 MILLION) votes. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT? Me neither

    Numbers don’t lie, of course NOT!

    The people who PUT THOSE NUMBERS THERE lie!

  3. The numbers don’t lie, the liars are trump and his henchmen. This evil criminal knew he lost and has caused death, injury and hatred.

  4. They are ALL lying, all of those Rhinos. As the lyrics of the famous chasideshe nigun so accurately said, “don’t believe your lyin anayim”.
    The only ones we can believe are those that the Trumpkopf has given his baracha on a given day (and check back frequently since as Mo Brooks learned, today’s baracha can quickly become tomorrow’s kalallah).

  5. The sad part is not about drech such as Trump, Giuliani and the other clowns. What really scares a lot of us is that so called “normal” Republican have twisted themselves into pretzels so they can stay in Trump’s good graces by supporting or at least trying not to contradict his insane rants.

  6. I think that Schiff’s face says a lot! The smirk on his face screams “Backroom discussions and Plotting”!

    Adam Schiff should have already been fired for lying multiple times in the previous Impeachment Trial.

    Someday the truths will come out and Schiff will not look good! I do not see a happy ending for him unless he repents!

  7. Of course the numbers can lie. What kind of hypocrisy is that? If there was fraud of sorts in the election, then the number is that you have are a lie. Joe Biden did not get 85 million votes. There’s not a snowball’s chance in purgatory that he came anywhere close to that. Anyone who believes that is on drugs.

  8. People wonder how Germans elected the nazis y’sv in the 30’s. Now we see plainly how people are easily manipulated by evil. Look at the lunatic GOP in Texas. White supremacists have us as their major target r’l, if you support trump you support them.

  9. Those 3 men who testified under oath yesterday were Republicans who voted for Donald Trump. Rusty Bowers who is an ultra conservative Republican has said he would vote for Trump again in 2024 if he were on the ballot. Can anyone explain why they think these 3 men would lie under oath,
    Republican former Attorney General Barr laughed when asked about the Mule video. Why must one pay to view the 2000 Mules?

  10. The question is whether Trump had reason to be suspicious enough to investigate further (was there smoke, e.g. why the unprecedented difference between in-person and mailed ballots), not whether there was actual fraud. As long as Trump had reason to question the results, his actions were justified, even though further investigation revealed legitimate reasons from what at first site appeared to signs of fraud (i.e. many Republicans “split their tickets” and didn’t vote for Trump, and Republicans were more likely to vote in person rather than mailing in ballots).
