The Washington Post has published an astonishing retraction two months after a bombshell story about a phone call between then-US President Donald Trump and an elections investigator in Georgia.
The newspaper reported in January that Trump had spoken to Frances Watson in December, asking her to “find the fraud” in the state and that she would be a “national hero” if she did.
But a newly surfaced recording – which had been deleted from Watson’s device and was only recovered by officials responding to a freedom-of-information request – has revealed the quotes attributed to Trump, and relayed to media by an anonymous source, were false.
