President Donald Trump is pushing the Georgia governor to improve recount efforts going on in the state.
“Why won’t Governor Brian Kemp, 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,” said Trump on Twitter. “It will be a ‘goldmine’ of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state….”
Trump is referring to certain actions by the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Breitbart News reports:
Raffensperger has claimed that matching the signatures is no longer possible because the ballots have been separated from the outer envelope. But Trump argued that verifying the signatures in the recount would eliminate any potential fraud — both in the 2020 election and the Georgia Senate runoff election.
“Georgia Republicans are angry, all Republicans are angry. Get it done!” said the President.
….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!
