Raffensperger: If Trump Didn’t Make ‘False Tweet,’ We Would Have Stayed Silent

‘We would have stayed silent as well, that would just be a conversation between him and I’

EXCERPT:

RAFFENSPERGER: "No, there was no agreement and we didn't know what the purpose of the call really was. I assumed it was about the November election on really Wednesday. If President Trump wouldn't have tweeted out anything and would've stayed silent, we would have stayed silent as well. And that would have just been a conversation between him and I, man to man, and that would have been just fine with us. But he's the one that couldn't, you know, had to put it out on Twitter. And so, if you're going to put out stuff that we don't believe is true, then we will respond in kind."
