President Trump and a Republican voter in the state of Georgia filed a strong lawsuit on Friday, Dec. 4 seeking to challenge the state’s election results, arguing systematic and centralized fraud intended to favor Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
President Trump’s latest presentation to the court is aimed at challenging the results of the state of Georgia. The Democratic candidate was given a tiny lead of 12,670 votes as the winner of the presidential election, amid an absolute crisis of mistrust in which dozens of witnesses in sworn affidavits said that election laws were repeatedly violated, always in favor of Joe Biden.
According to Fox News, the lawsuit filed on Friday states, “Due to significant systemic misconduct, fraud, and other irregularities occurring during the election process, many thousands of illegal votes were cast, counted, and included in the tabulations from the Contested Election for the Office of the President of the United States, thereby creating substantial doubt regarding the results of that election.”
The lawsuit highlights irregularities at the State Farm Arena in Fulton County, where numerous witnesses said that election officials, at one point on election night, informed Republican observers that they should leave because the vote count was suspended due to a broken water pipe.
According to the reports, accompanied by video records, after the observers left they continued the vote count and from one moment to the next the results were reversed. Before the suspension, President Trump had a 40,000 vote lead over his Democratic opponent, and after the observers withdrew, Joe Biden automatically moved to the front.
“After Fulton County Elections Officials lied and defrauded the Republican poll watchers and members of the press, whereby in reasonable reliance the Republican poll watchers and members of the press left the State Farm Arena (where they had been observing the ballots being processed), without public transparency Fulton County Elections Officials continued to process, handle, and transfer many thousands of ballots,” the lawsuit states.
On Thursday, video footage taken by security cameras at the State Farm Arena showed suitcases full of ballots appearing after the supervisor told Republican observers and reporters to leave the vote-counting center because of an alleged broken water pipe.
The Trump campaign posted the video in question on its official twitter account, along with a message that read, “Video footage from Georgia shows that poll workers were told to stop counting and leave, while 4 people stayed behind to continue counting ballots in private,” Team Trump tweeted.

Incredibly, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told Fox News early on Friday that the video of the alleged incident does not show election fraud and the ballots were stored in the appropriate containers.
During the week, President Trump pressured Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp via Twitter and during an interview on Sunday by Fox News, to rescind the vote certification issued by Raffensperger, and to ensure proper certification of signatures on absentee ballots.
Why won’t Governor @BrianKempGA, the hapless Governor of Georgia, use his emergency powers, which can be easily done, to overrule his obstinate Secretary of State, and do a match of signatures on envelopes. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state….

On Friday, Brian Kemp, in a dialogue with “The Ingraham Angle,” finally requested a signature audit, although he has not yet done so officially.
