Gavin Newsom California Governor

The effort to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom announced it has reached 2 million signatures, despite only needing 1.5 million to force a special election.

If 1.5 million signatures are validated, a special election will be held in the 60-80 days following official validation.

“The People of California are speaking loud and clear. We have cleared another milestone. Politics as usual in California are over as we know it to be,” said Orrin Heatlie, Chairman of The California Patriot Coalition, RecallGavin2020 Committee.

Officials in California have until April 29 to validate signatures. The Hill reports that in February, officials had verified 80% of the signatures collected. The Hill says many of the signatures are collected by volunteers.

1.8 million signatures have been submitted to 58 county offices for review.

In a speech Tuesday, Newsom said he and his administration “won’t change course just because of a few nay-sayers and dooms-dayers.”

“So to the California critics, who are promoting partisan power grabs and outdated prejudices, and rejecting everything that makes California truly great, we say this: We will not be distracted from getting shots in arms and our economy booming again. This is a fight for California’s future,” he said.

The recall group had until March 17 to reach 2 million signatures.

On Monday, former President Donald Trump once again took to his social media platform Truth to keep the public apprised on his life. “Wow, in the raid by the FBI on Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else.”

Daily Mail reports that Trump likely had not only a U.S. citizens passport, but also a red colored ‘diplomatic’ passport issued for official government travel when he was President. “If true, he cannot leave the country” adds Daily Mail.

“This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never before seen in our country. Third World” Trump wrote.

Trump told Fox News Digital that he offered to do “whatever he can” to fix the simmering tensions because people are “So angry at what is taking place.”

“People are so angry at what is taking place,” Trump told Fox when asked about reaching out. “Whatever we can do to help—because the temperature has to be brought down in the country. If it isn’t, terrible things are going to happen.”

He added: “The people of this country are not going to stand for another scam.”

Daily Mail reports that Federal law enforcement agencies are warning of ‘an increase in threats and acts of violence’ directed at FBI personnel after agents executed a search warrant on Trump’s Florida home.

Trump also told Fox News Digital that he had his representatives reach out to the DOJ to offer assistance as outrage in his base ensues over the FBI’s raid on his private residence.
