This keeps Georgia alive for Trump.
Trump’s attorney Lin Wood filed an emergency motion in Georgia’s 11th Circuit court of appeals.
The motion stated that Georgia’s election process was flawed and was unconstitutional due to illegal mail-in ballots and procedures used in the 2020 election.
Lin Wood hopes to be heard before December 14th which is the day Georgia has to certify its election results.

CBS 46 News covered Lin Wood’s motion and had this to add:
On the eve of Thanksgiving, U.S. Attorney L. Lin Wood filed an emergency motion in Georgia’s 11th Circuit court of appeals, requesting a review of the election process ahead of the January Senate runoffs.
In the filing, Wood alleges the state’s election process was flawed and deviated away from the Constitution; all the while arguing that Georgia’s election process may be riddled with doubt and public ridicule given the outcome of the the presidential election.
The suit states, “Appellant further submits that the procedures enacted by the Secretary of State and the State Board of Elections relate to the enormous quantity of mail-in-ballots cast in Georgia pursuant to the unlawful “Consent Decree, ”which precludes ascertainment of these ballots’ compliance with the detailed requirements for demonstrating the authenticity of such votes and the eligibility of those purportedly casting such ballots to vote in Georgia.”

The Epoch Times stayed busy too:
The attorney whose efforts to block the certification of Georgia’s 2020 election results was rejected by a federal judge has filed an appeal to the 11th Circuit Court seeking an emergency review of the lower court’s decision.
Lin Wood, an attorney with President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, has escalated his efforts for an emergency request to prohibit the certification of the state’s election results or the tabulation of “defective absentee ballots.” He filed a notice informing the district court that he is appealing its decision to deny his emergency motion for relief to the U.S. Court of Appeals.
He said the request was made because the “Court erred in not granting the temporary restraining order for the unconstitutional, unlawful election,” according to a court filing (pdf). He also asked the court to consider the matter as a matter of urgency because presidential electors will meet on Dec. 14.
Things are coming down to the wire in Georgia but things look brighter today than they were yesterday.
Lin Wood isn’t taking no for an answer and that’s the same energy every patriot has in their heart right now.
