‘She’s Going Through Hell’: Trump Rips Brian Kemp, Brad Raffensperger Over Lawsuit To Remove Marjorie Taylor Greene From Ballot

Donald Trump rips Brian Kemp

Donald Trump on Thursday slammed Georgia governor Brian Kemp, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger amid an effort to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) from the electoral ballot for inciting political violence, despite the fact that neither official was involved in a recent federal judge’s ruling on the matter.

“The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, and Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, perhaps in collusion with the Radical Left Democrats, have allowed a horrible thing to happen to a very popular Republican, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. She is now going through hell in their attempt to unseat her, just more of an election mess in Georgia,” Trump said in a statement issued through his Save America PAC and shared o Twitter by his spokesperson Liz Harrington.

“Brian Kemp should be voted out of office—vote for David Perdue,” Trump ranted. “REMEMBER, Brian Kemp will never be able to win the General Election against Stacey ‘The Hoax’ Abrams because a large number of Republicans just will not vote for him,” he added.

Trump’s diatribe against Kemp and Raffensperger comes after U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg ruled that a legal challenge against Greene’s candidacy by a group of Georgia voters could move forward.

The lawsuit alleges that Greene “voluntarily aided and engaged in an insurrection to obstruct the peaceful transfer of presidential power,” which would disqualify her from serving in Congress under the 14th Amendment.

According to a section of the 14th Amendment, no lawmaker, among other requirements, “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

Greene responded to the lawsuit by claiming in a statement that she had “never encouraged political violence and never will” and added that the effort came from “the same evil playbook the dishonest Communist Democrats use against President Trump and his family.”
