On Thursday, Trump’s legal team voluntarily dismissed the president’s remaining lawsuits against Republican Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, citing an out-of-court settlement agreement to discuss alleged evidence of voter fraud with state officials. Kemp and Raffensperger have accepted the voluntary dismissal, but refute the lawyers’ claims about the agreement.
The voluntary dismissal by Trump’s legal team followed the formal certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory early Thursday morning. In the statement to the court, the president’s lawyers said that they were dismissing the suits, which name Kemp and Raffensperger, after reaching an out-of-court settlement agreement that involved discussing with state officials data allegedly showing voter fraud.
Georgia Attorney General Christopher Carr said Thursday that Kemp and Raffensperger “do not object” to the voluntary dismissal, but asserted that they “do object to the false grounds articulated in the notice,” as reported by Bloomberg. State officials have made clear repeatedly that they view the claims
