Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, both Republicans, on Monday rebuffed President Donald Trump's calls to overturn the state's election results more than a week after they certified Joe Biden as the winner.

The statements by the two officials amount to an unusual public rejection of Trump, who continues to exert immense influence in the party and whose shadow hangs over January's runoff election, in which two Trump-allied GOP senators are hoping to retain their seats.For weeks, Trump has made a series of unfounded claims of fraud in the state, for which there is no evidence. Biden won the state with more than 12,000 votes, and both Kemp and Raffensperger have pledged they will abide by the law.Trump White House

"Georgia law prohibits the Governor from interfering in elections. The Secretary of State, who is an elected constitutional officer, has oversight over elections that cannot be overridden by executive order," Cody Hall, the communications director for Kemp, said in a statement."As the Governor has said repeatedly, he will continue to follow the law and encourage the Secretary of State to take reasonable steps -- including a sample audit of signatures -- to restore trust and address serious issues that have been raised."Election officials, however, have said it is physically impossible to do an"audit of signatures" from mail-in ballots. Trump and Kemp have previously demanded an"audit of signatures" from mail-in ballots, but election officials have repeatedly said it is literally impossible at this stage in the process. Election officials already verified voters' signatures twice, and then the ballots were permanently separated from the envelopes.Read MoreAlso on Monday, Raffensperger insisted during a press conference that"the truth matters" and pushed back against the"massive" spigot of election disinformation being spread by Trump and Republican allies. "There are those who are exploiting the emotions of many Trump supporters with fantastic claims, half-truths, misinformation, and frankly, they are misleading the President as well, apparently," he said. He also said that a post-election audit, along with the ongoing recount, prove that the election was fair. "Once this recount is complete, everyone in Georgia will be able to have even more confidence in the results of our elections," he said, adding that the recount is on track to finish by a Wednesday night deadline.The secretary of state said his office will continue to investigate any credible claims of illegal voting and any violations of state election law. According to Raffensperger, there are currently more than 250 open cases of election irregularities still being investigated from 2020. Nearly 5 million votes were cast statewide.Biden Transition

JohnBerman The facts are right. As we see what damage The Donald can do, he's just like 'a baby whining in his seat demanding to eat his baby food.' I mean it's pointless. He refuses to concede, which makes himself more of a loser than a winner willing to concede. Just to be clear he lost. JohnBerman So why did you guys take down your coverage for election night,when you said they would stop the count for 3hrs?I used to be able to find it on YouTube but I can't find it anywhere.DonaldJTrumpJr FLOTUS IvankaTrump POTUS

JohnBerman We are tired of all the whining. JohnBerman JohnBerman Yes he is a strong figther. Greets from heerlen limburg netherlands JohnBerman Donald Trump and his Groß Luge in voter fraud JohnBerman It's not over and we all know there was Election fraud. Everybody should watch the Patrick Byrne video and He explains it step by step. From Sharpies to Drag and Drop to 1 to 6 in the morning vote dumps.

JohnBerman JohnBerman I remember when CNN was the most reliable news source....like 20 some years ago....now it’s nothing but tabloid gossip.... JohnBerman I red trump got $170 million for recounting the votes. What happens if he stop all lawsuits. Is the money his, because if so he is a very smart thief. Don’t you agree

JohnBerman JohnBerman CNN's track record is as solid as lemmings versus a cliff. JohnBerman COVID 19 TRUMP 0 JohnBerman He couldn't be enjoying it more, unless Stormy Daniels were spanking him, too. Sadly the corruption in election fraud exists. Once revealed, every american should appreciate honest election result. Only votes from each legal legitimate American citizen. No one should want a presidency won by greed, lies, or corruption. Americans are smart & know best

So not all Republicans are ready to lean over a barrel and wait for a Trump surprise? I hope this catches on. 👍🙂 CCN is a fake news member of deep state! And CNBC, Washington post, New York times, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and BBC also! Kemp was also accused of cheating by Stacey Abrams two years ago. JohnBerman

JohnBerman It just might change. JohnBerman Definition of insanity is, losing multiple recounts and still expecting to win the election. stopthestupid JohnBerman Seriously? Can you even call yourself news? You are so bias and so blatantly rude against the President of the United States it’s sad.. I remember when news told the truth and did not try to manipulate the masses..

Ur disgusting JohnBerman Maybe the shyster going to rejoin his herd..Hopefully. JohnBerman He still believe it n deem himself 'legal ' president if they only legal votes😁 JohnBerman I will be glad when Trump is out of the White House so that CNN will have to come up with another obsession. It’s really getting weird how obsessed CNN is with him

Fact: Brian & Brad STOLE the election for Biden. JohnBerman JohnBrennan is a traitor and shame on CNN for giving him a platform JohnBerman JohnBerman Fake news, no one even watches your channel hence tweets - Twitter forces fake news into everyone’s profile and timeline JohnBerman 😂😂😂😂😂 JohnBerman This narrative is biting you in the A.. you are destroying yourselves

JohnBerman For somebody who hates losing he sure is good at it. JohnBerman Liberals are seem much more angry since the election, strange.

JohnBerman Nothing A would like better than a good fight- but.. JohnBerman Y’all just reported that China misreported COVID numbers. IT’S NOVEMBER. JohnBerman Một số Giới chính trị cao cấp và giới tinh hoa Mỹ hầu như gục ngã trước các đồng tiền và gái của ĐCSTQ! Họ đã làm tổn hại đến lợi ích của đất nước Hoa Kỳ. Họ rất sợ Trung Quốc lôi ra các bằng chứng. Thế giới ngầm tại Mỹ đã bị ĐCSTQ điều khiển!

JohnBerman A presidency should never be about 'winning'. The age of competing is over. The age of cooperation and sharing is beginning. You can go against the flow but life is always easier working with the 'tide'. Welcome to the New Age of Aquarius JohnBerman If paid attention to actual news they would report on actual election fraud going on in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Today there was an 8 hour hearing and they completely missed it. How could a media outlet be so incompetent. I don't know.

They’ll get caught in their own trap. rhinos join the dirty demorat swamp creatures, where they belong Recounting the votes without an audit is only attesting to fraud...where is the transparency? Why not allow an audit? This is only going to bring more doubts in our GA elections. Marxism will never win~

Smart This same news, but approached objectively, can be read in The Washington Times. “Over turn”? Why don’t republicans LindseyGrahamSC just open up an investigation into Biden and China? Do what democrats did to Trump for 4 years. We have the intel. Got to certify your results before the public hears about your treason. Seems legit.

More bullshit fake news from ... didn’t the rioters destroy the cnn building? They should get rid of cnn immediately so America can be a better place... cnn = 💩 that’s right, cnn is just a pile of DOGSHIT through and through
