Post Correction Reveals Another Falsehood In House Impeachment Memo

The Washington Post has corrected a story that President Trump falsely told a Georgia election official to “find the fraud” to help overturn Biden’s victory in the state.

That is the second major falsehood connected to a media report that appeared in House impeachment brief, which in turn accused Trump of inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

The first was that Trump supporters killed Capitol Hill police officer with a fire extinguisher. That one appeared in the New York Times. Sicknick had a stroke.

The House memo footnoted both accounts. The newspapers then published corrections. But not, of course, before House impeachment managers presented a case for “high crimes and misdemeanors” based on those falsehoods.
