This time, Donald Trump might not have been the real target.
When a recording of the president’s weekend phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger leaked to the media almost immediately, the obvious result was yet another mainstream media mauling of the man in the White House.
But for George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, the leak might really have been aimed at torpedoing Republicans in Tuesday’s Senate races in the Peach State – especially now-former Sen. David Perdue.
And considering the results as of Wednesday afternoon, it might have worked.
In a series of Twitter posts Monday, a day before voting began in Georgia, Turley argued that Raffensperger was “evasive” during an interview that day with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, but was very clear about his anger toward Perdue.
