Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams weighed-in Monday on Robert Mueller’s final report; saying the American people should be “deeply suspicious” of the special counsel’s summary that cleared the President of any “collusion” with Russian officials.

“I tend to think it’s like having your brother summarize your report card to your parents. We should be deeply suspicious… In a more legalistic and political frame, it is deeply inappropriate for an avowed partisan -who in part auditioned for the job by disparaging the report- to be responsible for summarizing the report,” said Abrams.
“As someone who has a recent experience of having the referee being in charge of the score keeping and being the contestant, I’m always suspect of a process that doesn’t have independence,” she added.
ABRAMS CLAIM: Stacey Abrams Says She Was Nearly Blocked from Voting in Georgia Election
Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacey Abrams claimed she was nearly blocked from voting this week; doubling-down on her previous comments that “voter suppression” led to an “unfair” midterm election.
Abrams was speaking with NPR when she stated an Election Day staffer attempted to stop her from casting her ballot; saying “The day I voted, I had to correct the poll worker who said I had filed for an absentee ballot.”
“I did it quietly. I didn’t turn it into a major conversation because, for me, it was about getting through the process,” she added. “But it was also emblematic to me of the privilege that I have.”
“I know the law … There are thousands, millions in Georgia who do not know what their rights are and therefore do not know that they shouldn’t have to wait in four-hour lines in the rain with their children. They shouldn’t have to worry about whether they will lose their jobs in order to exercise their democratic right to vote for their leader,” said Abrams

DEM DENIAL: Stacey Abrams ‘ASSEMBLES LEGAL TEAM’ to Fight Georgia’s Election Results
Democratic candidate for Governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams is escalating her legal fight against the GOP’s Brian Kemp; refusing to concede the race and “assembling a legal team” to contest the results.
“Democrat Stacey Abrams’s team announced she’s filing litigation in a Georgia county, at a Thursday news conference after Georgia Republican Brian Kemp claimed victory in the governor’s race Wednesday,” writes the Daily Caller.
Abrams’ argument centers around her claim that absentee ballots in specific districts were not delivered to voters in time for the 2018 midterm elections.
“Our point is the one that has been made twice now,” said her lawyer. “To put it very simply all the votes haven’t been counted. How can anybody claim a victory when there are enough votes that have not been counted that could cause a runoff here? … We believe everybody is entitled to have their vote counted.”
Kemp currently leads Abrams 50.3% to 48.7%.
