Trump’s lawyers advised the cancelation.
- Donald Trump will no longer hold a press conference addressing his fourth indictment and 2020 election fraud in Georgia.
- Trump initially said he would release an “Irrefutable REPORT on the Presidential Election Fraud” in Georgia that he believed would result in his “complete EXONERATION.”
- Trump’s lawyers advised against the media event, according to the former president.
- “Rather than releasing the Report on the Rigged & Stolen Georgia 2020 Presidential Election on Monday, my lawyers would prefer putting this, I believe, Irrefutable & Overwhelming evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities in formal Legal Filings as we fight to dismiss this disgraceful Indictment,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
- The initial announcement of the conference was made shortly after a Georgia grand jury voted to charge Trump and others with what they believe was a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.
TRUMP’S PROCLAMATION OF THE CONFERENCE:
- Trump described the report to be “Large, Complex, Detailed” on Truth Social.
- He alluded to a perceived bias in investigations, asserting that authorities “never went after those that Rigged the Election.”
- He went on to claim that they “only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS.”
- After Trump was indicted in Georgia, the Trump campaign released a statement, reading, “The legal double-standard set against President Trump must end. Under the Crooked Biden Cartel, there are no rules for Democrats, while Republicans face criminal charges for exercising their First Amendment rights.”
- “These activities by Democrat leaders constitute a grave threat to American democracy and are direct attempts to deprive the American people of their rightful choice to cast their vote for President,” the statement continued. “Call it election interference or election manipulation—it is a dangerous effort by the ruling class to suppress the choice of the people. It is un-American and wrong.”
- Georgia State Senator Colton Moore (R) initiated an effort to scrutinize Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who recently indicted Trump.
- Moore wrote a letter to Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, which says, “We, the undersigned, being duly elected members of the Georgia House of Representatives and Georgia Senate, and comprising 3/5 of each respective house, hereby certify to you, in writing, with a copy to the Secretary of State, that in our opinion an emergency exists in the affairs of the state, requiring a special session to be convened under that section, for all purposes, to include, without limitation, the review and response to the actions of Fani Willis.”
- “As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis,” Moore tweeted. “America is under attack. I’m not going to sit back and watch as radical left prosecutors weaponize their elected offices to politically target their opponents.”
