President Donald Trump pressured Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr not to drum up public opposition to the Texas attorney general’s Supreme Court lawsuit to overturn 2020 election results in several swing states, including Georgia’s.
According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the president directly called Carr late on Tuesday night to push back on the Georgia official’s critical comments about the much-maligned suit, in which Carr blasted it as “constitutionally, legally, and factually wrong.”
The two men spoke at the urging of [Sen. David] Perdue, who along with [Sen. Kelly] Loeffler also received calls from Trump about Carr’s opposition to the lawsuit, according to three Republican officials, two of whom described Trump as “furious” in his call with Loeffler over the attorney general’s stance.
Minutes after Trump and Carr hung up, the two senators issued a joint statement proclaiming their support for the Paxton lawsuit.
