( – Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has once again refuted former President Donald Trump’s unfounded claims that the 2020 presidential election had been “rigged” so that Joe Biden could win the White House.

On Monday, Trump along with 18 others were indicted and charged with a total of 41 charges, including charges under Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Trump himself has been charged with 13 different counts in this indictment which include conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, false statement and writings, and impersonating a public officer among other charges. Trump has maintained that he is completely innocent and has committed no wrongdoings.

Republican governor Kemp is currently in his second term and he refuted the claims that the 2020 election was rigged. As a result of the tense relationship between Trump and Kemp, in the 2022 election, Trump endorsed former U.S. Senator David Perdue in the state’s gubernatorial race. However, despite these attempts, Kemp was able to win his reelection by over 50 percentage points.

Kemp in his latest post on X, formerly known as Twitter, stated that the election was not fraudulent and that in the last three years, no one has come to present evidence in court of election fraud. He proceeded to argue that the election had been fair, secure, and accessible and that this would continue throughout his time as the state’s governor. He then pointed out that the attention should be placed on the country’s future and the 2024 presidential election.
