Trump’s Legal Advisers Beg Him to Cancel Press Conference to Refute Georgia Allegations
Former President Donald Trump’s anticipated press conference aimed at refuting the allegations outlined in the indictment from the Fulton County
Former President Donald Trump’s anticipated press conference aimed at refuting the allegations outlined in the indictment from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office is now uncertain, as multiple sources familiar with the situation have revealed concerns among his legal advisors. These advisors have cautioned that proceeding with a press conference based on dubious claims of voter fraud could potentially exacerbate Trump’s legal challenges, prompting some attorneys to advise him to reconsider and potentially cancel the event.
The announcement of the planned press conference came through a social media post shortly after Trump and 18 co-defendants were indicted in Georgia on Monday. In the post, Trump stated his intention to present “A Large, Complex, Detailed but Irrefutable REPORT on the Presidential Election Fraud which took place in Georgia.”
The response to Trump’s assertion was swift, with Georgia’s Republican governor and other prominent figures countering his claims. Governor Brian Kemp addressed the issue on social media, asserting, “The 2020 election in Georgia was not stolen. For nearly three years now, anyone with evidence of fraud has failed to come forward — under oath — and prove anything in a court of law.”
Even Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence echoed the sentiment, aligning themselves with Kemp’s position. Pence emphasized, “The Georgia election was not stolen.”
The credibility of Georgia’s 2020 presidential election has been rigorously examined through multiple audits and recounts. The results were verified in three distinct counts, including a meticulous hand count of nearly 5 million ballots. Moreover, the allegations made by Trump were investigated not only by his own Justice Department under Attorney General Bill Barr but also by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
