At a protest on Wednesday, Lin Wood, a pro-Trump lawyer, urged Georgian Republicans to sit down for the state’s upcoming Senate remote elections, arguing that the two presidents should first support a special legislative session to support an investigation into Donald Trump’s state defeat. .
“They didn’t get your vote,” he said of Wood Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. “Don’t give it to them. Why would you go back and vote for another election you made, for God’s sake! Fix it! We need to fix it!”
The two January 5 sessions will decide which party will ultimately control power in the U.S. Senate. But Wood, who was celebrated on the right after representing a Kentucky Catholic student in Covington in defamation lawsuits, has repeatedly urged Trump supporters to boycott the race in order to draw attention to what he sees as a huge fraud in the state’s election infrastructure.
There is no such fraud. Reports in Georgia have proved that President-elect Joe Biden won the state, and local GOP officials have asked Trump and his allies to honor that result. Nonetheless, Wood and other Trump activists say they want Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) to convene a separate meeting to investigate the race. Kemp has so far resisted his call.
Wood’s latest remarks, made at a heated meeting, come at a time when national Republicans are increasingly afraid that Trumpist anger over the election results could result in depressing turnout on January 5th. and Trump’s ally, Vernon Jones, showed this fear by encouraging the crowd to vote during the runoff. But after Jones made his request, an unimpressed Wood said he disagreed with it and called on Republicans to vote on Loeffler and Perdue only if they called for a special meeting.
“Don’t be fooled twice,” Wood said. – This is Georgia, we’re not stupid.
Wood appeared alongside attorney Sidney Powell, who gained tremendous follow-up to Trump from below, with his post-election promises to “release Kraken” by proving that Trump won the election. Powell, whose claims were so foreign that the Trump campaign sought distance from him, said on Wednesday that the runoff should not have happened according to the theory that Perdue and Loeffler cleared 50 per cent in the first ballot (none).
“I think I would encourage all Georgians to let them know that you will not vote at all as long as your vote is safe,” Powell said.
Wood also averted dissatisfaction with the Republican Party by claiming that the “deep state” had infiltrated it, claiming that both Georgia’s GOP and Republican National Commission Chairman Ronna McDaniel had abandoned its donors by not giving more support to Trump’s election. challenge against the results. .
“If you sent money to the Republican Party of Georgia, or sent money to the National Republican Party, where the hell are they?” Wood said. – Where’s Ronna McDaniel?
