2020 Presidential Election In Georgia 'Not Stolen': Kemp
"Gov. Brian Kemp responds a day after former President Donald J. Trump and co-conspirators were indicted on election interference charges.
ATLANTA, GA — While former President Donald J. Trump alleges fraud in the 2020 presidential election, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said Tuesday there is no public statewide evidence of fraud.
Kemp said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, the election was not stolen in Georgia, and claimed no one has publicly shown any evidence of election fraud in the state while under oath. He said the statewide election process was "secure, accessible and fair."
"The future of our country is at stake in 2024 and that must be our focus," Kemp said in the post.
His comments came from his campaign account on X and not his official governor's account.
Kemp was seemingly replying to Trump's Truth Social post that hinted Tuesday at a forthcoming detailed report on the 2020 presidential election.
Trump revealed a press conference will be held at 11 a.m. Monday in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he said he will present the report's findings.
He said in the Truth Social post:
"Based on the results of this CONCLUSIVE Report, all charges should be dropped against me & others - There will be a complete EXONERATION! They never went after those that Rigged the Election. They only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!"
Kemp's comments came a day after Trump and 18 co-conspirators were indicted in Fulton County and accused of trying to overturn the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.
During the 2020 presidential election, Trump ran against Democratic President Joe Biden. Shortly after Biden's win in Georgia, Trump claimed the election was stolen.
After news broke of Trump's indictment Tuesday night, Trump called the Georgia probe a "witch hunt."
According to the Associated Press, the indictment accused Trump of trying to steal voting machine data and using one of his attorneys to access a rural county's voting machines.
"The nearly 100-page indictment details dozens of acts by Trump or his allies to undo his defeat, including beseeching Georgia’s Republican secretary of state to find enough votes for him to win the battleground state; harassing an election worker who faced false claims of fraud; and attempting to persuade Georgia lawmakers to ignore the will of voters and appoint a new slate of electoral college electors favorable to Trump," the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee will oversee Trump's Georgia election interference case, Forbes reported Tuesday.
