Georgia Rejects Trump’s Request 

On Saturday Trump phoned Kemp asking him to directly break the Law.

On Sunday, Kemp Rejected the Plea and chastised Trump.

Mr. Trump asked Mr. Kemp in a phone conversation Saturday to call a special session of the state legislature and to push lawmakers to appoint pro-Trump electors who would swing the Electoral College in his favor. Mr. Trump repeated the request at a rally Saturday night in Georgia, which Mr. Kemp didn’t attend.

“The governor is not going to call us into a special session,” Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan, said on CNN. “We’re certainly not going to move the goal posts at this point in the election. We are going to continue to follow the letter of the law.”

A second Republican elected official, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, said on ABC, “I don’t believe that there’s the will in the general assembly for a special session.’’

“State law is clear: the legislature could only direct an alternative method for choosing presidential electors if the election was not able to be held on the date set by federal law,” Messrs. Kemp and Duncan said in their statement.

Any attempt by the legislature to retroactively change that process for the November 3rd election would be unconstitutional and immediately enjoined by the courts,’’ they wrote.
