Trump cancels press conference to show 'conclusive' election fraud report
Willis charged Trump and 18 of his political allies with charges under the state's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.
Former President Donald Trump announced this week that he would not hold a planned press conference to unveil a report on election fraud that he had claimed would provide him with "complete exoneration."
"Rather than releasing the Report on the Rigged & Stolen Georgia 2020 Presidential Election on Monday, my lawyers would prefer putting this, I believe, Irrefutable & Overwhelming evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities in formal Legal Filings as we fight to dismiss this disgraceful Indictment by a publicity & campaign finance seeking D.A., who sadly presides over a record breaking Murder & Violent Crime area, Atlanta," he posted on Truth Social this week. "Therefore, the News Conference is no longer necessary!"
Earlier in the week, Trump announced the press conference, which had been slated for next week, in the immediate wake of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis's bringing charges against him over his efforts to challenge the 2020 presidential election results in the Peach State. Trump contends he legitimately won Georgia and that the race went to Biden due to election fraud.
"A Large, Complex, Detailed but Irrefutable REPORT on the Presidential Election Fraud which took place in Georgia is almost complete & will be presented by me at a major News Conference at 11:00 A.M. on Monday of next week in Bedminster, New Jersey," he posted on Tuesday. "Based on the results of this CONCLUSIVE Report, all charges should be dropped against me & others - There will be a complete EXONERATION! They never went after those that Rigged the Election. They only went after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!"
Willis charged Trump and 18 of his political allies with charges under the state's Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Trump himself also faces a litany of conspiracy charges and multiple counts of soliciting a public official to violate their oath.
A trial date has not been set as of press time.
