Everything Trump Touches Dies, written by a former Republican, delved into Donald Trump’s fatal attraction. Then, we saw former Vice President Mike Pence, who only once disagreed publicly with Donald Trump, was thrown under the bus. Trump’s January 6 insurrectionists demanded “Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!” Check out who is next.
Wilson’s book’s full title was Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever, according to Amazon. Wilson was a Republican political campaign strategist and commentator who not only wrote about Trump, he helped found the Lincoln Project. The organization has worked to actively shine a light under the rock that was president and anyone in his closest orbit.
Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has come too close to Donald-sun, and was burned by his own actions.
After Trump lost the election to President Joe Biden, he went on a months’ long rampage. Over 60 lawsuits eventually lost during his sham about winning for the presidency. That was when the Donald dug deeper into his bag of dirty tricks.
He continued to tell the big lie about winning and sent his Chief of Staff to Georgia to snoop around. The ex wanted Meadows to get into the room auditing voter signatures, but the state locked him out. The former chief of staff could only peek into the window. Yet, he announced that “Georgia’s signature verification system is rife with fraud,” Reuters reported.
Meadows also collection some rather interesting phone numbers last December. Unexpectedly, Georgia’s secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, received a call from the then-president on Jan. 2. Trump tried to manipulated and then, pressure him into a so-called ‘find” of enough votes to throw the election for 45’s second term.
Trump pressured Raffensperger to “find 11,780 votes:”
‘There’s nothing wrong with saying that, you know, that you’ve recalculated.’
Georgia’s secretary of state’s Chief Investigator, Frances Watson also received a call from Trump uring her to weed out the “dishonesty” that let him lose.
Trump tried to appeal to her baser instincts, but fortunately for our democracy, neither bent to the desperate politician’s will:
‘When the right answer comes out, you’ll be praised.’
Others on the call were:
‘three lawyers advising Trump – longtime Republican attorney Cleta Mitchell and Georgia-based lawyers Kurt Hilbert and Alex Kaufman – along with Fuchs and the secretary of state’s general counsel, Ryan Germany.’
Germany said no to the data share. That was against Georgia law. Meadows tried again:
‘When we get off of this phone call, if you could get together and work out a plan to address some of what we’ve got with your attorneys where we can we can actually look at the data.’
Atlanta’s former U.S. Justice Department prosecutor Kurt Kastorf said:
‘They very clearly pressured the secretary of state to share some data. If the data sought was confidential, that would be a pretty strong argument that this is interference with election operations.’
Georgia State University law professor Clark Cunningham noted that the prosecutors would most likely want to know why Meadows went to Georgia during the recount, which was highly unusual:
‘Clearly, there was some kind of interaction between Meadows and Watson that Trump’s leveraging for the call.’
