(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s latest indictment in Fulton County, Georgia is different from his previous indictments as it also highlights the role played by his allies in Trump’s false fraud election claims being perpetuated. Fani Willis’, Fulton County District Attorney, highlights how many Republican officials played a role in the attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.
This key difference makes it harder for Trump to defend his actions by using his usual narrative of being a victim and the cases against him being pushed by the Democrats and President Biden because he is leading the 2024 Republican presidential primary race. On Friday, Trump posted three times on social media to allege that the legal cases against him constituted “election interference.”
However, his claims are a bit harder to support in Georgia where two Republican figures, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Gov. Brian Kemp had opposed his attempt to overturn the election results.
Kemp in particular has been open about the doubts he feels regarding the former president’s 2024 candidacy which in large part is based on his grievances regarding the 2020 presidential election. On Friday during a conservative gathering, Kemp argued that the Republicans should easily be able to take back the White House, but that they can only do that by placing their attention on the future rather than focusing on something that had taken place three years earlier.
Earlier that week Trump had also claimed he would host a press conference to present irrefutable evidence of election fraud in Georgia, which led to Kemp responding that the election had been fair and not stolen.
