As officials in several key states weigh their options on supporting Trump or not, Trump has issued a warning to the Republican Attorney General, Chris Carr, in the battleground state of Georgia: Don’t try and rally other Republicans against the lawsuit.
U.S. Senators. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue issued a joint statement saying they “fully support” the lawsuit for the Supreme Court to reject election results in Georgia and three other states.
Chris Carr’s office says the lawsuit by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is “constitutionally, legally and factually wrong.”
The complaint asked the court to delay the Monday deadline for certification of presidential electors in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Trump and Carr spoke at the urging of Senator Perdue, who along with Senator Loeffler also received calls from the President about the fact that Carr is opposing the lawsuit, according to three Republican officials who also described Trump as “furious” in the call with Loeffler over Carr’s position.
Just moments after Trump and Carr hung up, the two Georgia senators issued this joint statement showing their support for the lawsuit.
This all comes after Trump asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday to let him join the lawsuit challenging the November election results.
The lawsuit repeats false and already disproved allegations about mail-in ballots and the voting process in Georgia and the other states mentioned in the suit.
It’s the latest in a series of attempts by the President to overturn his loss to former Vice President Joe Biden, which made him the first Republican Presidential candidate to lose Pennsylvania since George H.W. Bush 1992.
President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) on Wednesday to block millions of votes from four battleground states, where President-elect Joe Biden was declared the winner, in a desperate ‘Hail Mary’ bid to topple the 2020 election.

Easton claims that the four battleground states, – Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, – violated the Constitution due to election management.
Trump says the battleground states used the pandemic “as an excuse” and “ignored or suspended the operation of numerous state laws designed to protect the integrity of the ballot.”
Trump claims that during the 2020 election, officials deliberately weakened measures to ensure fair and impartial elections by creating new rules for conduct, based on distancing and sanitary measures created by the intrusion of Covid-19.
Trump claims that the rules were never approved by legislature of those said states, required by the Article II of the Constitution of the United States.
Trump has offered no direct evidence that the Covid-19 measures taken to assure the safety of election officials affected the results, nor does he offer proof of why the election results in states where he won would be exempt from the same legal argument.
