New Report Confirms Brad Raffensperger’s Office Committed a Crime in Jan. 2021 as The Gateway Pundit First Reported in Feb. 2023

A new report confirmed that Brad Raffensperger’s office most certainly committed a crime in January 2021 during their phone call with President Trump.

This report was originally published by Joe Hoft at The Gateway Pundit on February 21, 2023. The Gateway Pundit discovered that Jordan Fuchs, Georgia’s Deputy Secretary of State, who was on the call with President Trump, taped the call from Florida without announcing it.  This was a criminal act since Florida is a two party consent state.  You must notify an individual if you record them in Florida.  Jordan Fuchs did not do that when she recorded President Trump. Her second illegal act was destroying the audio recording. It was later discovered in her computer’s trash folder!

On Thursday Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist confirmed our reporting from February last year.

A new book from Mike Isikoff and Daniel Klaidman admits that a widely misunderstood phone call, on which Willis’ political prosecution rests, was illegally recorded. That means the entire prosecution could crumble with defendants having a new avenue to challenge Democrat lawfare.

Find Me the Votes: A Hard-Charging Georgia Prosecutor, a Rogue President, and the Plot to Steal an American Election is a fawning political biography of Willis. For context on the bias of the authors, Isikoff was an original Russia-collusion hoaxer, and his articles to that end were used to secure warrants for the FBI to spy on innocent Republican presidential campaign advisers such as Carter Page.

This confirms Joe Hoft’s earlier reporting at The Gateway Pundit.

After all the controversy involving the phone call President Trump made to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in early January 2020, there may actually be a crime committed after all. 

President Trump lined up a call with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on January 2, 2021.  President Trump had bucketloads of ballot and process issues identified in the state’s 2020 Election.

Raffensperger certified Joe Biden’s uncertifiable win in the 2020 election in Georgia by 12,000 votes. However, multiple experts identified hundreds of thousands of issues in the state.

President Trump hired an audit firm to audit the state’s results after the election and he and Georgia Senator and former judge William T. Ligon found hundreds of thousands of issues with the election results that were ignored by Secretary of State Raffensperger.

ARROGANT CORRUPTION: To This Day Georgia’s Secretary of State Raffensperger IGNORES Multiple Issues Identified by President Trump’s Auditor and Georgia State Senator and former Judge William Ligon from the 2020 Election

President Trump made a call to Raffensperger on January 2, 2021, asking Raffensperger to look at some of the items that were uncovered by his auditor.  There was plenty of evidence for a man of integrity to know that the election was uncertifiable.

Instead of responding to President Trump’s issues as promised during the call, Raffensperger and his team taped the call without announcing that it was being taped and shared pieces of the call with the Washington Post.

Never-Trumper Fulton County DA Fanni Willis later put together a grand jury to look into the call to see if there were any crimes committed related to the call.  Unfortunately for Willis, the case ended up being a “nothingburger“.

After all this time and money spent, it is odd that one question never was asked of any of the witnesses in the grand jury.  Who taped the call of President Trump and was it legal?  

Georgia is a one-party consent state.  This means that in Georgia, you are legally allowed to record a conversation if you are a contributor, or with prior consent from one of the involved parties.  This would suggest that it was ok for Raffensperger and his team to secretly record the call with President Trump.

However, Florida is a two-party consent state.

Florida recording law stipulates that it is a two-party consent state. In Florida, it is a criminal offense to use any device to record communications, whether they’re wire, oral or electronic, without the consent of everyone taking part in the communication. Fla. Stat. § 934.03(2)(d). This means that in Florida you are not legally allowed to record a conversation you are taking part in unless all parties are in agreement.

Why does this matter?

Because there is reason to believe that Jordan Fuchs, Georgia’s Deputy Secretary of State, who was on the call with President Trump, taped the call from Florida.

Yesterday, on the Joe Hoft Show at, Georgia’s election integrity guru, Garland Favorito, from VoterGA shared that Fuchs is believed to have been in Florida when she taped the call with the President and if so, that would likely be illegal.

Starting at the 18:30 mark in the video below Favorito discussed election integrity issues in Georgia.

Favorito then discussed the recent political effort by Fanni Willis, a Soros-funded DA, and her grand jury.

“We all knew there was nothing suspicious about that phone call, nothing criminal, everyone knew it from the very beginning and yet, Fanni Willis chose to issue this political witchhunt.

After the witchhunt ended up with nothing, the judge in the case and Willis’s accomplice, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney decided to release select information from the grand jury’s testimonies in an unprecedented move, “which is unheard of”.

They had nothing.

Favorito then shares at the 32:20 mark this shocking revelation:

Let me just add one more point to what you just said…but here’s the other thing.  There is one thing that is illegal about this call and that was the recording of the call, which the evidence indicates down here was the recording was made by the Assistant Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs when she was in Florida.  And that is, Florida is a two-way state and therefore recording of the call without notifying the parties, if you’re recording from a two-way state, that is a violation of federal law.

And that is one of the things that I believe Fanni Willis covered up and prevented the grand jury from knowing that information.  And if you remember it was generally accepted down here and in other circles that it was Jordan Fuchs who leaked the information to the Washington Post and distorted the story and then the Washington Post had to back peddle about what it had previously written about that call.

When asked about how he knew this, Favorito shares that “that’s where she was (Florida) at the time of the call.”

Favorito shares that there are social media posts showing that she was in Florida at the time of the call on January 2, 2021.

This could very well be a crime.  Was sharing the recording obtained illegally also a crime?
