ANOTHER ANTI-TRUMP HOAX JUST FELL APART

Democrats and the left-wing media pushed a conspiracy theory centered around an alleged “7-hour gap” in Trump’s White House phone records on January 6, suggesting he used “burner phones” to coordinate the capital riot… 🙄
Here are some of the fake news headlines:
📰 The Atlantic: What Is Trump Hiding About His Phone Records?
📰 Slate: Gap in Trump Jan. 6 phone records is proof of criminal intent
📰 Mediaite: Nearly 8-Hour Gap in White House Phone Logs Raises Questions of Whether Trump Used ‘Burner Phones’
📰 Business Insider: January 6 committee investigating whether
Trump used burner phones as the riot unfolded
…can you tell how desperate they were to believe this story?
In an unexpected twist, CNN was the outlet that debunked the hoax.
Here’s what they said:
“…the gap might have a less mysterious explanation. According to multiple sources… the January 6 log reflects Trump’s typical phone habits. He mainly placed calls through the [official White House] switchboard when he was in the residence but rarely used it when he was in the Oval Office. The fact the log does not show calls on January 6, 2021, from the Oval Office is not unusual”
A separate report from Axios detailed how Trump’s executive assistant Molly Michael was absent that day and her duties are typically to keep notes on Trump’s phone calls – which explains why the calls weren’t noted.
Sorry, Dems. Keep trying.
