On Wednesday, President Donald Trump unleashed on Georgia governor Brian Kemp for “slow walking” the signature verification process in the state of Georgia.
The President accused Kemp of not wanting the “results to get out” before January 6th.
“They are slow walking the signature verification in Georgia,” President Trump tweeted. “They don’t want results to get out prior to January 6th. They know what they are trying so hard to hide. Terrible people!”
Check out what The Epoch Times reported:
A lawyer for Trump on Dec. 1 wrote to Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger for the “immediate audit” of tens of thousands of ballots.
“The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from the absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia—far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket’s current margin of 12,670 votes,” according to a news release from Trump’s team at the time.
President Trump is clearly angry with the leadership in the state of Georgia. Last week, the President retweeted a tweet from attorney Lin Wood, claiming that Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger would be “going to jail.”
“President Trump is a genuinely good man,” Wood’s tweet read. “He does not really like to fire people. I bet he dislikes putting people in jail, especially “Republicans.” He gave @BrianKempGA & @GaSecofState every chance to get it right. They refused. They will soon be going to jail.”
Wood also attached a photoshopped picture of Kemp and Raffensperger wearing pro-China masks.
Shortly after the tweet was retweeted by President Trump, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that the state of Georgia would be conducting a statewide audit.
“We are confident that elections in Georgia are secure, reliable, and effective,” Raffensperger said in a statement. “Despite endless lawsuits and wild allegations from Washington, D.C. pundits, we have seen no actual evidence of widespread voter fraud, though we are investigating all credible reports. Nonetheless, we look forward to working with the University of Georgia on this signature match review to further instill confidence in Georgia’s voting systems.”
The Daily Wire reports:
Raffensperger announced on Monday that the state would be reviewing signatures in Cobb County due to a complaint specific to the county. While the complaint referred to Cobb County election officials’ conduct during the primary election, the review will cover ballots sent in the primary and in the general election.
President Trump has consistently called for a signature audit of Georgia’s votes sent by mail, hammering the state’s Republican governor and secretary of state. The state has already conducted two statewide recounts, finding a number of mistakes totaling thousands of votes, but not enough to flip the state from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to Trump, who trails by about 12,000 votes.
