Trump Says Kemp Should Use Emergency Powers to Overrule Raffensperger

President Donald Trump on Monday suggested that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp use his emergency powers to overrule decisions made by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger concerning the Georgia recounts.

“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. It will be a “goldmine” of fraud, and we will easily WIN the state…”

Raffensperger has claimed that the matching of signatures is no longer possible because the ballots have been separated from the outer envelope and that there is no way to re-combine them.

Trump has also suggested comparing the number of envelopes to ballots, claiming that unequal numbers would also reveal inconsistencies.
