President Donald Trump is officially contesting the results of the presidential election in the state of Georgia based on evidence that tens of thousands of votes were potentially fraudulent.
The Trump Campaign filed an election contest today in Georgia state court seeking to invalidate the state’s November 3, 2020 presidential election results. Joining President Trump and the Trump campaign in the lawsuit is David Shafer, Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, who is also a Trump presidential elector.
“What was filed today clearly documents that there are literally tens of thousands of illegal votes that were cast, counted, and included in the tabulations the Secretary of State is preparing to certify,” said Ray S. Smith III, lead counsel for the Trump Campaign. “The massive irregularities, mistakes, and potential fraud violate the Georgia Election Code, making it impossible to know with certainty the actual outcome of the presidential race in Georgia.”
Attached to the complaint are sworn affidavits from dozens of Georgia residents swearing under penalty of perjury to what they witnessed during the election: failure to process and secure the ballots, failure to verify the signatures on absentee ballots, the appearance of mysterious “pristine” absentee ballots not received in official absentee ballot envelopes that were voted almost solely for Joe Biden, failure to allow poll watchers meaningful access to observe the election, among other violations of law.
Data experts also provided sworn testimony in the lawsuit identifying thousands of illegal votes: 2,560 felons; 66,247 underage voters, 2,423 votes from people not registered; 1,043 individuals registered at post office boxes; 4,926 individuals who voted in Georgia after registering in another state; 395 individuals who voted in two states; 15,700 votes from people who moved out of state before the election; 40,279 votes of people who moved without re-registering in their new county; and another 30,000 to 40,000 absentee ballots lacking proper signature matching and verification.
“The Secretary of State has orchestrated the worst excuse for an election in Georgia history,” added Smith. “We are asking the Court to vacate the certification of the presidential election and to order a new statewide election for president. Alternatively, we are asking the Court to enjoin the certification and allow the Georgia legislature to reclaim its duty under the U.S. Constitution to appoint the presidential electors for the state,” Smith concluded.

The legal filing comes after Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said he wants a signature audit of the presidential election after a video surfaced yesterday that the Trump campaign says shows election officials counting secret suitcases full of ballots overnight hours after the election after poll watchers and the media had been told to go home.
Kemp told host Laura Ingraham in a Fox News town hall that he was upset after seeing a new video presenting during hearings in the Georgia Senate that appears to show thousands of potentially illegal votes being counted in secret.
“I called early on for a signature. Obviously the secretary of state, per the laws in the Constitution, would have to order that. He has not done that. I think it should be done,” Kemp said of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
“I think especially what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that. I think in the next 24 hours, hopefully, we will see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today, and we will be able to look and see what the next steps are,” he added.
The video has gone viral on Twitter and has been shared by a Georgia congressman who also wants an investigation.
A few days ago, President Donald Trump’s campaign submitted a request to the Georgia Secretary of State for an audit of the absentee ballots cast during the presidential election, citing potential fraud that could invalidate tens of thousands of ballots.
For the fifth time, the Trump Campaign has requested that the Georgia Secretary of State perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the November 3rd General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from the absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia – far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket’s current margin of 12,670 votes.
The Trump Campaign says it has substantial evidence of other violations of Georgia’s Election Code and numerous other serious discrepancies in voting across the state which call into question the validity of the Secretary of State’s certification of the presidential election.

Trump Campaign attorneys requested that the Georgia Secretary of State uphold his duty to preserve the legitimacy of his state’s elections, saying: “It is not possible for you to accurately certify the results in the presidential race from the November 3, 2020, election until and unless there is a thorough audit of the signatures, which we have now requested four times in writing prior to this request. You cannot in good faith conclude the ongoing statutory recount until you have instituted a signature matching audit,” said Ray S. Smith, III, Counsel to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.
“Until the signatures are matched, the vote count in Georgia is a complete fraud,” added former New York City Mayor and Personal Attorney to President Trump, Rudy Giuliani. “There is no way of knowing which ballots are honest and which ballots are fraudulent.”

Meanwhile, Trump does not want pro-life conservative voters in Georgia to boycott the January Senate runoff elections. He wants every Republican voter to turn out to support pro-life Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.
President Donald Trump rallied the GOP Friday on Twitter, asking American conservatives to keep their eyes on the heated Georgia run-off Senate race for January and not to boycott the two Senate races, despite frustration among supporters over alleged fraud allegations.
He made the statement in response to a Newsmax tweet that Trump supporters in Georgia may consider boycotting the election in January. Trump said “no.”
The President, who is now the most influential leader in the Republican Party, regardless of the outcome of the 2020 election, said even though “the 2020 election was a total scam, we won by a lot (and will hopefully turn over the fraudulent result), but we must get out and help David and Kelly, two great people.”
He added, “otherwise we are playing right into the hands of some very sick people. I will be in Georgia on Saturday!”
Loeffler is facing a high-stakes runoff election against pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock in January. Because Republicans hold such a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, her seat is key to stopping Democrats from expanding late-term abortions and forcing taxpayers to pay for unborn babies’ abortion deaths.
Though Warnock is a Christian pastor, he supports abortion on demand and has the endorsement of the largest abortion group in America, Planned Parenthood.
Loeffler has a 100-percent pro-life voting record. She also co-sponsored the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks on unborn babies capable of feeling pain, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would protect newborns from infanticide.
March for Life Action, Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life and other leading pro-life groups are working hard to support Loeffler and U.S. Sen. David Perdue, a pro-life Republican who also is facing a runoff election against pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff.
A recent Remington Research Group poll shows Perdue and Loeffler are ahead but only by small margins, Newsweek reports. According to the poll, voters chose Perdue over Ossoff by 50 percent to 46 percent; an additional 4 percent were undecided. The poll found Loeffler had a 1-percent lead over Warnock (49 percent to 48 percent); 3 percent of voters remain undecided.
