Donald Trump’s effort to expose voter fraud in the 2020 election hit a setback.
But it didn’t come from the Democrats.
It happened when a key Republican governor just sold out Trump on this voter fraud challenge.
President Trump implored Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp to call a special session of the legislature and authorize a signature verification process for mail-in ballots to prevent Democrats from stealing the state of Georgia’s Electoral College votes through voter fraud.
“Gee, what a surprise. Has anyone informed the so-called (says he has no power to do anything!) Governor @BrianKempGA & his puppet Lt. Governor @GeoffDuncanGA , that they could easily solve this mess, & WIN. Signature verification & call a Special Session. So easy!” the President posted on social media.
Governor Kemp responded by stabbing President Trump in the back by releasing a statement declining the President’s request to call a special session of the legislature to address election integrity issues in the 2020 contest.
“While we understand four members of the Georgia Senate are requesting the convening of a special session of the General Assembly, doing this in order to select a separate slate of presidential electors is not an option that is allowed under state or federal law,” Governor Kemp’s statement read.
Governor Kemp then falsely claimed that state law prevented the legislature from naming a pro-Trump slate of electors.
“State law is clear: the legislature could only direct an alternative method for choosing presidential electors if the election was not able to be held on the date set by federal law,” the statement continued. “In the 1960s, the General Assembly decided that Georgia’s presidential electors will be determined by the winner of the state’s popular vote.”
This is just not true.
In the Constitution, the framers vest the power with naming electors to the Electoral College with the state legislature.
The Supremacy Clause of the Constitution would override any state law preventing the Georgia legislature from picking its own slate of electors if they believed the race was stolen by Democrats through a massive voter fraud scheme.
At a rally for the Republican senators ahead of the two January 5 runoff elections, President Trump essentially invited a close ally—Congressman Doug Collins—to challenge Kemp in the 2022 Republican primary.
In 2018 Kemp surged from out of nowhere to win the nomination and gubernatorial election solely because Donald Trump endorsed him.
Kemp turned his back on the President and now the President is willing to endorse a challenger to the governor.
And now it looks like Brian Kemp’s political career could end because of a Donald Trump endorsement.
