Can you record the phone call of the president of the United State?


Recommended Posts

Former White House counsel to Richard Nixon, John Dean, took to Twitter Sunday evening to speculate that the one behind the now-infamous extortion tape of Donald Trump may have been the president or one of his staff.

 

Dean noted that the audio of the recording made Trump sound the loudest and the clearest. That indicates that the person recording it is the clearer one. He also said that it sounds almost as if the others on the call are on a speakerphone, which would make sense if Trump or his staff was recording it near the president's phone.

 

If Trump was the one behind the call, it begs the question of whether other calls he makes are recorded. How many of them were recorded? With whom? And why they haven't been released by the president who pledged full transparency.

Think of the phrases that Trump spoke...his lies....they are clear on the tape...and those sound bites will be the quotes on Newsmax and the other far right stations. Trumps voice will be the loudest and the clearest to the base. All about optics.

But then.....Raffensperger admitted that he released the tape because Trump lied about the content of the call on twitter, so it was released.

 

 

To those wondering if it was legal for Raffensberger to record the call, under GA Code 16-11-66(a) “Nothing shall prohibit a person from intercepting a wire, oral, or electronic communication where such person is a party to the communication.”

I thought recording someone with out their knowledge is a Federal crime.

 

I wonder if it is kinda like splitting hairs tho...since Trump is the President and it could be considered a public record.

You can record anything you want.

 

Whether it is admissible in court is based on the laws of the state.

Not true.

 

But in some states it is not allowed as evidence unless they knew it was being recorded.

Yes, but it cannot be used in any court case if the President was not first asked if he was okay with the recording and did agree to be recorded.

 

But that is not the issue here, so don't fall for the okie doke.  The issue here is that his words are okay and harmless, but just like with Ukraine the Democrats are attempting to turn his words into something which they are not. He is clear and concise in asking Raff to intervene in a frauded election ---which is an impeachable offense only for Presidents  named Trump.

There was no indication that  Trump did not consent to this being made public.

Trump normally threatens lawsuits over any sort of criticism he does not like.

Note that he has not protested this call being released.

It is pretty clear that no one will be punished for releasing it. So this discussion is moot.

Recording of the phone call is not illegal in GA in and of itself. Now using it in a legal setting is not so cut and dry. If Trump was to use it in a civil lawsuit against someone involved, he could do so but only if he could prove that he did not know of its recording and/or if the recording was edited.

David Shafer: President Donald Trump has filed two lawsuits – federal and state – against Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. This was after Raffensperger secretly recorded the “confidential settlement discussion” of that litigation that is still pending. The audio published by the Washington Post is heavily edited and omits the stipulation that all discussions were for the purpose of settling litigation and confidential under federal and state law.

Those clever LWNJs made the president call the Republican Sec of State and ask him to jockey the vote count so that that the president wins a state he lost. How do ya suppose they pulled it off Einstein?

Your naiveté is expected.  And embarrassing.

Trump simply did WASH DC 101.  The norm, the DC culture.

Obama's spy state is much scarier than a Trump political phone call.
