It’s not just Democrats who want to lock up Donald Trump.
Establishment Republicans secretly support the lawfare against Trump in the 2024 election.
And one top Republican just helped Democrats put Trump in jail with this ugly betrayal.
There is no Republican in America that Donald Trump has a more complicated relationship with than Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
Trump’s endorsement in the 2018 Republican Primary won Kemp the nomination.
And Trump’s campaigning for Kemp pushed Kemp to victory in the General Election against Stacey Abrams.
But Kemp broke with Trump in 2020 and certified the results in Georgia.
Trump then recruited former Senator David Perdue to Primary Kemp in a failed bid to exact payback.
Now that Fulton County’s Democrat District Attorney is indicting Trump on baseless charges in an attempt to interfere in the 2024 election, some Georgia Republicans want to fight back.
State Senator Colton Moore demanded Governor Kemp call the legislature in for a special session so the GOP majority can investigate and impeach Willis.
“As a Georgia State Senator, I am officially calling for an emergency session to review the actions of Fani Willis,” Moore stated. “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.”
Trump praised this move.
“Highly respected Georgia State Senator Colton Moore deserves the thanks & congratulations of everyone for having the courage & conviction to fight the Radical Left Lunatics who are so badly hurting the Great State of Georgia, & the USA itself,” Trump wrote.
But Kemp – who has made no secret he wants to see a different nominee in 2024 – rejected the call to hold Willis accountable for what is clearly a political persecution.
“Now, my concerns with the Fulton County District Attorney’s handling of this case in the special purpose grand jury have been well-documented. We are now seeing what happens when prosecutors move forward with highly charged indictments and trials in the middle of an election. Simply put, it sews distrust and provides easy pickings for those who see the district attorney’s action as guided by politics,” Kemp began.
Kemp claimed Willis – who attended a fundraiser for a Democrat opponent of a candidate running for Lt. Governor who Willis was investigating in the Trump case – made no overtly political or unethical moves that would warrant her removal under a new Georgia law.
“But let me be clear. We have a law in the state of Georgia that clearly outlines the legal steps that can be taken if constituents believe their local prosecutors are violating their oath by engaging in unethical or illegal behavior. Up to this point, I have not seen any evidence that D.A. Willis’ actions or lack thereof, warrant action by the prosecuting attorney oversight commission,” Kemp added.
Willis also forced Trump to take a mugshot and scheduled her trial one day before the Super Tuesday Primaries in a blatant act of Election Interference.
But still, Kemp claimed Willis did nothing unethical.
“The bottom line is that in the state of Georgia, as long as I’m Governor, we’re going to follow the law in the Constitution regardless of who it helps or harms politically,” Kemp declared. “And in Georgia, we will not be engaging in political theater that only inflames the emotions of the moment.”
At “The Gathering” – an event hosted by center Right pundit Erick Erickson – Kemp told the crowd that any GOP nominee needs to be focused on the future and ignore the past – a veiled shot at Trump over contesting the 2002 election.
And now it looks like Kemp’s opposition to Trump includes standing with Democrat prosecutors waging lawfare.
