President Trump pressured Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp via Twitter and during an interview on Sunday by Fox News, to rescind Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s certification of votes and ensure proper certification of signatures on absentee ballots. 

After Georgia certified Democratic candidate Joe Biden as the winner on Nov. 20, the Trump campaign called for a recount in light of the huge number of election fraud allegations in the state. 

The president’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, noted, “Without signature-matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted.”

Today President Trump addressed Republican Gov.  Brian Kemp on his Twitter account, saying, “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.”

And in another message he continued, “Also, quickly check the number of envelopes versus the number of ballots. You may just find that there are many more ballots than there are envelopes. So simple, and so easy to do. Georgia Republicans are angry, all Republicans are angry. Get it done!”

As reported by Fox News, Georgia Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both involved in the January runoff election, endorsed President Trump’s demands for reliable signature verification and called for Raffensperger’s urgent resignation as the man responsible for mishandling the situation.

One of the lawyers in charge of the Georgia election fraud allegations, Lin Wood, posted a series of messages on his Twitter account on Tuesday with a subpoena suing Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. 

Wood, in his Twitter posting, included two images of a subpoena for Atlanta Hawks Vice President Scott Wilkinson and Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger, who is listed as “the defendant.”

During the Fox News “Sunday Morning Futures” program, President Trump harshly criticized Kemp for not being decisive in his stance on the obvious fraud cases in Georgia.

During the program, President Trump indirectly labeled the governor as an accomplice to the fraud, even expressing regret for having given him his support during the 2018 election race when he faced Democrat Stacey Abrams.
