Donald Trump posted a three-page rant Tuesday morning, declaring his actions during his now-infamous telephone call to the Georgia Secretary of State were “perfect” and above reproach. The ex-president made the social media posts just hours before a judge will decide on releasing the special grand jury’s report from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis‘ investigation into the ex-president’s actions interfering with the 2020 election.

Calling Willis’ investigation into Trump an “Imminent threat,” USA Today reports the special grand jury’s report includes “any recommendations related to the possible prosecution of the former president and his allies.” The newspaper adds the investigation is “perhaps the most serious legal threat facing the former president.”

Talking Points Memo adds the “grand jury’s own recommendation is that they should be made public.”

Trump on Tuesday repeated many of the same lies he has made in defense of his possibly unlawful call to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

“My phone call to the Secretary of State of Georgia, and a second call which the Marxists, Communists, Racists, and RINOS don’t even want to talk about, were ‘perfect’ calls,” Trump falsely declared, writing “perfect” in all-caps.

“Many people, including lawyers for both sides, were knowingly on the line. I was protesting a rigged & stolen election, which evidence proves it was,” he continued, which is a lie. “I won Georgia by a lot, but only needed a small number of votes from that total number. They cheated in many ways including stuffing Ballots, all caught live on tape.”

Again, that is false.

“With many people on the line on what was a perfect call protesting the Rigged Georgia Election, which I have a clear right to do, and in fact an obligation to do since I made the call as President, how come not one person said, while on the call, that I acted inappropriately, or made a statement of protest at what I said, & then slammed down the phone,” he asked. “Not one, even with so many opposing people, lawyers, and others on the line. No admonishment at all. We nicely agreed to speak again,” Trump claimed.

The one-term twice-impeached ex-president under multiple criminal investigations made additional false claims, and concluded by writing, “The Election in Georgia was rigged and stollen,” he said, once again misspelling “stolen.” “We have all the evidence needed. That is the crime!”

Tuesday’s hearing, TPM notes, is expected to be aired aired live on the judge’s YouTube channel.

    Your old Apple devices can make you thousands of dollars on eBay – exact products revealed including an iPhone model

    THE most valuable Apple products from previous generations have been revealed.

    Anybody who has saved OG items from the brand that were hot in their heyday could be making some serious cash on eBay.

    While today's typical consumer is often in a rush to get their hands on the latest iProducts, throwback Apple goods have maintained their own value.

    Here are some of the most iconic old electronics that could mean a nice payday for your eBay account.

    ORIGINAL IPOD

    When the iPod was first released, it was an instant hit - it became a window into someone's personality.

    In Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs, he explains that the device's release had everyone asking each other "what's on your iPod?"

    Journalists even asked President George Bush about his tunes at the peak of iPod-mania.

    A factory-sealed first-generation iPod is listed on eBay for a stunning $23,000 - while an untouched first-gen iPod may truly be a rare find, a working one can fetch you $1,500 on Etsy.

    CLAMSHELL IBOOK

    The iBook looks clunky by today's standards but its thick clamshell design and colored options were cutting edge at the time, one memorable appearance taking place in the 2001 movie Legally Blonde.

    It was the first laptop to truly harness wi-fi and mobile computing, normalizing the presence of on-the-go work, school, and play.

    The iBook goes for a range of prices on eBay, mostly huddling around $200 - but one seller with a collection of iBooks is calling for $2,499 for one of their units.

    EARLY IPHONE

    Just 74 days after launch, Apple made an adjustment to the early lineup of handsets in an announcement celebrating one million iPhones sold.

    In the same statement, the company elected to discontinue the four-gigabyte version and put the eight-gigabyte version on center stage.

    Consequently, the four-gigabyte version is the rarer and more valuable of the originals, even though it has less storage power.

    There are a limited amount of boxed, never activated four GB first-generation iPhones on eBay, starting at around $5,000 on the low end at getting up to $10,000.

    But used, functional four GB iPhones are still worth a solid chunk of change for a retired gadget sitting in a drawer.

    Working, pre-owned four GB originals are selling for mostly in the $100 to $350 range but one seller is asking for $1,200.

    The original iPhone came with the data storage content engraved on the back of the phone - check the back of your vintage device to see which you've got.

    LENNON EDITION IPOD TOUCH

    The 16-gigabyte iPod Touch John Lennon Edition with the original box and earbuds, courtesy of 2007, goes for a nice chunk of change on eBay.

    With starting bids at $500 for some of the more pristine versions of this iPod, many more online shoppers are eligible to snag this time-capsuled music goodie from one of Apple's golden eras.

    Perhaps it could be an easy payday for the seller.

    The packaging is branded with dead Beatles legend John Lennon, who fronted the band as a vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and visionary alongside bandmates Paul McCartney, 80, Ringo Starr, 82, and the late George Harrison.

    Though he would likely rebel about the use of his face for such a an endorsement, Lennon's presence makes this music-driven device even more worth it for fans of the band or any other big listeners.

    While the seller kept everything else in pristine condition, the original charger is not included with the device posted, but they will still toss one in.
