Trump-Backing Lawyers Urge Georgia Republicans Not to Vote in Senate Runoff

HeadlineDec 03, 2020

Two Republican attorneys who have previously worked on Trump’s behalf led a rally of Trump supporters in Atlanta, urging Georgians not to participate in a Senate runoff election on January 5. This is Sidney Powell, who was ousted last month from Trump’s so-called Elite Strike Force legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani.

Sidney Powell: “I would encourage all Georgians to make it known that you will not vote at all until your vote is secure.”

Powell was joined by Republican attorney Lin Wood, who said Georgia Republicans should refuse to vote for incumbent Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, saying they haven’t done enough to overturn the results of the election.

Lin Wood: “They have not earned your vote. Don’t you give it to them! Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election? For God’s sakes, fix it!”

If Republican Senators Perdue and Loeffler lose their reelection bids to Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock, Democrats will claim a narrow 51-50 majority in the Senate with Vice President Kamala Harris serving as a tie-breaker.
