In a move that has shocked many within the Republican Party, Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp is refusing President Donald Trump’s request that Kemp call a special session of the legislature in an attempt to overturn his Georgia’s election results.
“Gov. Brian Kemp, the Georgia Republican, issued a joint statement Sunday night that said it would be in violation of state law for him to call a special session of the legislature to overturn his state’s election results,” according to Fox News.
“Kemp, along with other Republicans in the Peach State, has been on the receiving end of tough criticism from President Trump over what he sees as blatant inaction amid his claims of widespread voter fraud…
“Trump took to Twitter on Sunday to call out Kemp and Lt. Gov Geoff Duncan…
“The Associated Press reported that Kemp spoke with Trump over the phone on Saturday and the president asked if he would order the session, but the governor refused. Duncan told CNN in an interview that he is concerned that the president is presenting misinformation… [emphasis added}
“Kemp has been severely criticized by Trump who said he was “ashamed” for endorsing him for governor. Kemp reflected on the intense criticism coming from high-profile figures, including the president and attorney Lin Wood Jr.”
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! https://t.co/5cb4QdYzpU
