Officials in Raffensperger’s office recorded the call with Trump on Saturday, according to a source who was on the call and had direct knowledge of the conversation.
Raffensperger supposedly told his advisers he did not want the recording or a transcript of the call released unless Trump “attacked him”or “misrepresented the call”, according to the source. Trump tweeted Saturday about the election irregularities in Georgia and the voter fraud that occurred in Fulton County.
The audio recording was reported by the Post several hours after Trump said on Twitter that he had spoken to Raffensperger on the phone in an attempt to convince him to look into the election fraud in the November 3rd election. According to Trump, Raffensperger refused to do so. In response, Raffensperger cryptically delivered a strong message to the President on Sunday.
“Respectfully, President Trump: What you’re saying is not true. The truth will come out,” the tweet declared.
