MARK MEADOWS, White Home chief of employees: So, Mr. President, if I, if I’d have the ability to leap in, and I’ll give Brad an opportunity. Mr. Secretary, one, clearly, there’s, there are allegations the place we imagine that not each vote or truthful vote and authorized vote was, was counted. And that’s at odds with the illustration from the secretary of state’s workplace. What I’m looking forward to is there are a way that we will, we will discover some form of settlement to, to, to have a look at this somewhat bit extra totally. As you realize, the president talked about Fulton County, however in a few of these areas the place there appears to be a distinction of the place the info appear to guide. And so, Mr. Secretary, I used to be hopeful that, you realize, in a spirit of cooperation and compromise, is there, there’s one thing that we will at the very least have a dialogue to have a look at a few of these allegations to discover a path ahead that’s much less litigious.
RAFFENSPERGER: Nicely, I’ve listened to what the president has simply mentioned. President Trump, we’ve had a number of lawsuits, and we’ve needed to reply in court docket to the lawsuits and the contentions of — we don’t agree that you’ve got one. We don’t, I didn’t agree concerning the 200,000 quantity that you simply talked about. And I am going via that time by level. What we had performed is we gave our State Senate about one and a half hours of, of our time going via the election subject by subject. After which on the State Home, the Authorities Affairs Committee, we gave them about two and a half hours of our time, going again level by level on all the problems of rivalry. After which just some days in the past, we met with our U.S. congressmen, Republican congressmen, and we gave them about two hours of our time speaking about this previous election. Going again primarily what you’re, what you’ve talked about right here, targeted in on primarily, I imagine it’s the absentee poll course of, I don’t imagine that you simply’re actually questioning the Dominion machines as a result of we did a hand re-tally, a 1 % re-tally of all of the ballots and in contrast that to what the machine mentioned. And it got here up with just about the identical consequence. Then we did the recount. We’ve received just about the identical consequence. So I, I suppose we may most likely take that off the desk. I don’t suppose there’s a problem about that. I believe what you had been —
TRUMP: Nicely, Brad, Brad, not that there’s not a problem, however as a result of now we have a giant subject with Dominion and different states and maybe in yours. However now we have, we haven’t felt we would have liked to go there, and simply to, you realize, possibly put somewhat completely different spin on what Mark is saying. Mark Meadows. Yeah, I wish to go additional, however we don’t really want to. We’ve got all of the votes we want. You realize, we received the state. Should you took, these are essentially the most minimal numbers, the numbers that I gave you. These are numbers which can be licensed, your absentee ballots despatched to vacant addresses, your, your out-of-state voters, 4,925.
You realize, while you add them up, it’s many extra occasions, it’s many occasions the 11,779 quantity. So we may undergo. We’ve got not gone via your Dominion, so we will’t give them blessing. I imply, in different states we predict we discovered large corruption with Dominion machines, however we’ll need to see. However, however we, we solely misplaced the state by 11 thous — by, by that quantity, 11,000 votes and 779. So with that being mentioned, with simply what now we have. And, you realize, with simply what now we have, we’re providing you with minimal, minimal numbers, we’re doing essentially the most conservative numbers attainable. We’re many occasions, many, many occasions above the, the margin. And so we don’t actually need to, Mark — I don’t suppose now we have to undergo the machines as a result of, as a result of what’s the distinction between successful the election by two, two votes and successful it by half 1,000,000 votes? I believe I most likely did win it by half a mill — I imply, you realize, one of many issues that occurred, Brad, is now we have different folks coming in now from Alabama and from South Carolina and from different states, and so they’re saying, ‘It’s unattainable so that you can have misplaced Georgia.’ We received. You realize, in Alabama, we set a report, received the very best vote ever. In Georgia, we set a report with a large quantity of votes. They usually say, ‘It’s not attainable to have misplaced Georgia.’
And I may inform you by our rallies, I may inform you by the rally I’m having on Monday night time, the place, they have already got traces of individuals standing out entrance ready. It’s simply not attainable to have misplaced Georgia. It’s not attainable. Once I heard it was shut, I mentioned there’s no approach. However they dropped quite a lot of votes in there late at night time, you realize that, Brad. And that’s what we’re engaged on very, very stringently. However no matter these votes, with all of it being mentioned, we misplaced by 11 to — primarily 11,000 votes. And now we have many extra votes already calculated and licensed too. So I simply don’t know. You realize, Mark, I don’t know what’s the aim. I received’t give Dominion a move as a result of we’ve discovered too many unhealthy issues. However we don’t want Dominion or the rest. We’ve got, now we have, now we have received this election in Georgia primarily based on all of this. And there’s, there’s nothing unsuitable with saying that, Brad. You realize, I imply, having the, having an accurate. The folks of Georgia are offended, and these numbers are going to be repeated on Monday night time, together with others that we’re going to have by that point, that are rather more substantial even, and the folks of Georgia are offended, the folks of the nation are offended. And there’s nothing unsuitable with saying that, you realize, um, that you simply’ve recalculated as a result of the two,236 and absentee ballots, I imply, they’re all actual numbers that had been, had been performed by accounting corporations, legislation corporations, and many others. And even if you happen to lower ’em in half, lower ’em in half and lower ’em in half once more, it’s extra votes than we want.
RAFFENSPERGER: Nicely, Mr. President, the problem that you’ve got is the information you’ve is unsuitable. We, we talked to the congressmen, and so they had been shocked. However they — I suppose, there’s an individual named Mr. Brainard that got here to those conferences and offered knowledge, and he mentioned that there was lifeless folks, I imagine it was upward of 5,000. The precise quantity had been two. Two. Two those who had been lifeless that voted. And so, that’s unsuitable, that was two.
TRUMP: Nicely, Cleta, how do you reply to that? I imply, you inform me.
CLETA MITCHELL, Trump lawyer: I’ll say Mr. Secretary, one of many issues that now we have requested, and we did — What we mentioned was, and if you happen to take a look at, if you happen to learn our petition, it mentioned that we took the names and beginning years and, you realize, we had sure data out there to us. We’ve got requested out of your workplace for data that solely you’ve. And so we mentioned there’s a universe of people that have the identical title and identical beginning yr and died. However we don’t have the data that you’ve got, and one of many issues that now we have been suggesting formally and informally for weeks now could be to attempt, is so that you can make out there to us the data that may be essential to substantiate —
