Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp said that new testimony has raised additional questions about the presidential election and a signature audit should be performed.

During an interview, Kemp, who has been immensely criticized by President Trump over his approach to allegations of voter fraud in Georgia, referenced a surveillance video that allegedly shows poll watchers being led out of a room after being told that the vote count was complete for the night. Once the poll watchers were gone, the video shows a woman pulling suitcases out from under a table that allegedly contained ballots.

A Trump lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, tweeted that the video is the "smoking gun from Georgia."

"I think [a signature audit] should be done. I think especially [given] what we saw today... it raises more questions," Kemp said

One of Trump campaign's legal team lawyers, Jenna Ellis, responded to the Kemp interview on Twitter saying the campaign team had requested signature verification five times.

"I think in the next 24 hours, we will see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we will be able to look and see what the next steps are. That's where we are now," Kemp said. "[Georgia] is literally the firewall," he said. "I think we all have to pull together and figure out what we have got to do to ensure people that their votes are going to come. I believe it will and that's why I'm working so hard for David [Perdue] and Kelly [Loeffler] and I will continue to do that."
