No matter how painful it may be, TuskerDaily must admit that New York Senator Chuck Schumer was 100% correct when he directly challenged Sen. Ted Cruz back in January.
Chuck Schumer Was 100% Correct
Chuck Schumer Was 100% Correct when, on January 3, 2020, he pounced on the Washington Post exclusive.
Schumer puffed out his chest and pounced, challenging Texas Senator Ted Cruz and his supposed gang of MAGA supporters:
Hey @SenTedCruz and his gang:
You want to investigate election fraud? Start with this

Needless to say, after what TuskerDaily reported yesterday about the validity of the WaPo’s ‘find the fraud‘ anonymous source.
Since Chuck Schumer’s tweet directly linked to the Washington Post exclusive, which has since discovered was based more on ‘feelings’ rather than ‘facts’.
Schumer’s track record of being wrong 100% of the time still stands.
The Washington Post admits to lying in their correction:
Former President Donald Trump told Georgia 2020 election investigators “to find the fraud,” in December.
The Washington Post’s correction ran atop an online version of the updated original story that had quoted an anonymous source about a phone call Trump made to Georgia’s top elections investigation official shortly before Christmas.

Oddly, the correction appears online as a preface to the original story, yet the headline still accuses Trump of possible obstruction:
“Correction: Two months after publication of this story, the Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator.
The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source. Trump did not tell the investigator to “find the fraud” or say she would be “a national hero” if she did so.
Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find “dishonesty” there. He also told her that she had “the most important job in the country right now.” A story about the recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes misattributed to Trump.
Trump Calls Out The Washington Post’s ‘Find The Fraud’ Lie
Trump acknowledged that while he “appreciated” that the error had been fixed, he blasted WaPo because they knew their story had been a “hoax” from the start.
“A strong democracy requires a fair and honest press. This latest media travesty underscores that legacy media outlets should be regarded as political entities–not journalistic enterprises,”
