Former President Donald Trump has come to the defense of Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, accusing top Georgia Republicans of conspiring with Democratic lawmakers to oust her.
On Thursday, Trump released a statement on Twitter via his spokesperson Liz Harrington, hitting out at Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
The lawsuit was filed by a group of voters in Georgia and alleged that Greene's actions before and on the day of the January 6
It is unclear if any of the voters behind the suit have any connection to Kemp or Raffensperger.
"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," Trump wrote.
Noting that Greene was "going through hell," the former president accused Kemp and Raffensperger of orchestrating "attempts to unseat her." He also claimed that the pair had added to the "election mess in Georgia."
In the statement, Trump once again threw his weight behind GOP gubernatorial candidate David Perdue, who is challenging Kemp for the Republican nomination and is slated to go up against Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams for the hotly-contested Georgia seat.
"Brian Kemp should be voted out of office — vote for David Perdue," Trump wrote. "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."
Trump endorsed Perdue in favor of Kemp after accusing the latter of being a weak governor and a "RINO" (an acronym for "Republican-in-name-only").
The two men have had a fraught relationship since Kemp broke with Trump and said he would "continue to follow the law" despite Trump's baseless claims of nationwide voter fraud.
Meanwhile, Raffensperger became a prominent figure and a target for the far-right for standing up to Trump and thwarting the former president's attempts at overturning President Joe Biden's election win in Georgia.
For her part, Greene has continued to protest the lawsuit against her, insisting that there was "no insurrection" and that "no Republican member" — herself included — had anything to do with January 6, 2021.
