New York Times CAUGHT LYING About President Trump AGAIN


How is The New York Times still credible?

Before they made their core business about attacking President Trump, The New York Times was probably the industry leader in manufacturing consent.

This is the very same publication which was a mouthpiece for the state in 2003, and helped to push a false narrative, force-fed to the public, designed to sell The Iraq War.

Since that time, they have just done more of the same wholesaling of deep state lies and pro-state propaganda, and nothing highlights that more than their continued attacks on President Trump.

Their latest lie alleges a phone conversation between President Trump and a DOJ official, which was reported entirely out of context:

This is what The New York Times originally said:

President Donald J. Trump pressed top Justice Department officials late last year to declare that the election was corrupt even though they had found no instances of widespread fraud, so that he and his allies in Congress could use the assertion to try to overturn the results, according to new documents provided to lawmakers and obtained by The New York Times.

The exchange unfolded during a phone call on Dec. 27 in which Mr. Trump pressed the acting attorney general at the time, Jeffrey A. Rosen, and his deputy, Richard P. Donoghue, on voter fraud claims that the department had disproved. Mr. Donoghue warned that the department had no power to change the outcome of the election. Mr. Trump replied that he did not expect that, according to notes Mr. Donoghue took memorializing the conversation.

‘Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me’ and to congressional allies, Mr. Donoghue wrote in summarizing Mr. Trump’s response.

The Federalist called out The New York Times:

While the Times claimed the above exchange occurred during a phone call in which Trump “pressed” Rosen and Donoghue “on voter fraud claims that the department had disproved,” the “just say that the election was corrupt” comment came in an entirely different portion of the discussion, the handwritten notes establish.

That comment followed Donoghue’s assurance that the department would “look at whether there were more ballots in PA than registered voters.” Donoghue’s commitment to investigate this potential fraud came in response to Trump’s earlier assertion that Pennsylvania had only 5 million voters in the state, but there were 5.25 million votes casts.  

“Clearly fraud,” the handwritten notes show Trump saying to the two top DOJ officials, while Donoghue added his own commentary, of “possibly true?” in a parenthetical.
