This is typical Republican rhino behavior they don’t even have the guts to face the music.
One day after Georgia Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger released a private conversation between himself and President Trump he called a press conference but, he decided not to show up.
Raffensperger sent Gabriel Sterling, a voting systems manager for the Georgia Secretary of STate’s Office and he claimed the President is “intentionally” misleading the Georgia State Legislator and the American people. Sterling accused the PResident and his team of lying and used slides to “debunk” President Trump.
GA election official Gabriel Sterling says President Trump and his team “intentionally misled” Senators, Representative and supporters about allegations of voter fraud and irregularities. Sterling continues point-by-point “debunking” rebuke of Trump ahead of GA runoff votes.

Then Sterling decided to use democrat talking points claiming to show how President Trump and his legal time lied about fraud claims in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
Raffensperger did run to friends in the local Georgia media claiming that he released the phone call because “Trump lies.”

However, the real reason Raffensperger may not have shown up at the press conference is that he may be the defendant in some upcoming court cases.
President Trump has filed two lawsuits – federal and state – against Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party announced that “Raffensperger secretly recorded the ‘confidential settlement discussion’ of that litigation that is still pending.
The audio published by @TheWashingtonPost is heavily edited and omits the stipulation that all discussions were for the purpose of settling litigation and confidential under federal and state law.

No one likes a rat and Raffensperger may pay a heavy legal price for releasing his phone call with the President.
