Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp roused the ire of President Trump in recent days for not doing more in response to reports of election fraud in his state. But that may be changing now that Gov. Kemp is calling for a signature audit after CCTV footage was presented on Thursday showing election workers purportedly unloading suitcases of hidden ballots. 

Katie wrote earlier about the video presented by the Trump campaign's lawyers during an emergency hearing in Georgia on Thursday. The video allegedly shows election workers in Fulton County wheeling in suitcases full of ballots after an election worker told poll watchers and others to go home for the night. The ballots were allegedly then counted for two hours without witness supervision. 

Hours after the hearing, Gov. Kemp is reportedly now calling for a signature audit to be conducted in the state.  

President Trump has tied his own cause of uncovering voter fraud in the state of Georgia to Republican prospects of winning two Senate runoff races in January that will determine whether or not the GOP retains control over the upper chamber of Congress.

In his first television interview since Election Day, President Trump told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo on Sunday that he was ashamed of himself for having endorsed Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in the governor's 2018 race against Democrat Stacey Abrams.
