Gabriel Sterling, the Republican Chief Operating Officer of the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, has made a plea to supporters of former President Donald Trump to see the truth after Rudy Giuliani’s admission that he lied about the 2020 presidential election.
Moss and Ruby Freeman Suing
Giuliani, a former Trump lawyer, conceded that he made defamatory and false statements about two Georgia poll workers, Shaye Moss and Ruby Freeman, who are currently suing him for defamation after he falsely asserted they committed election fraud to benefit President Joe Biden.
Giuliani’s admission was seen as a ploy to avoid further discovery in the defamation case, as he had previously faced the prospect of severe penalties for failing to turn over requested electronic communications. Sterling, in response, wrote on Twitter that Trump supporters were fed nonstop falsehoods about the election, which Trump lost decisively to Biden.
"Rudy Giuliani admits that he lied about Shaye Moss and Ruby Freeman," Sterling wrote. "We've known for years that he lied about them and the events at State Farm Arena. For those that still believe there was widespread voter fraud, these people are admitting they lied to you."
Sterling’s plea comes as Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is holding a special grand jury to investigate efforts by Trump and others to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. The grand jury will examine potential criminal conduct by individuals, including Trump, who sought to influence the election’s outcome in the state. Sterling’s tweet also highlights the ongoing legal battles over the election results and the impact they have had on public trust in the electoral process.
Trump Supporter Tweets
Despite Sterling’s plea, some Trump supporters responded to his tweet in support of the former president. However, Sterling’s message was well-received by others, who expressed their gratitude for his honesty and commitment to the truth. Sterling’s plea is a reminder that political leaders have a responsibility to be truthful and transparent, especially when it comes to the democratic process.
Sterling’s plea to Trump supporters to see the truth after Giuliani’s admission is a reflection of the ongoing legal battles over the 2020 presidential election results. The grand jury investigation and Sterling’s tweet highlight the importance of honesty and transparency in the democratic process and the need for political leaders to uphold these values.
