Outgoing President Donald Trump continues to push lies about the electoral process in the United States. On Wednesday, after a Georgia state legislative committee held a hearing covering election-related issues in the state, Trump pompously proclaimed on Twitter that “[we] now have far more votes than needed to flip Georgia in the Presidential race,” which is false. Sure, at the hearing, top Trump defender Rudy Giuliani presented a laundry list of supposed evidence, including a claim of thousands of ballots cast in the names of deceased individuals — but these claims are not meaningfully substantiated. In previous cases, alleged instances of “dead people voting” have been the fault of mere clerical issues, and on the flip side, a conspiracy to cast ballots in the name of dead people would require a level of national coordination for which there’s just zero legit evidence.

On Wednesday, Trump also alleged mismanagement of the mail-in ballot signature verification process in Fulton County, Georgia, where the Trump team has falsely claimed that election workers covertly counted ballots that had been stored in a “suitcase” after observers left the room. In fact, the supposed “suitcase” was merely an ordinary ballot-transporting container, officials explained. Trump claimed that top Georgia leaders “are disasters for Georgia” and “Won’t let professionals get anywhere near Fulton County for signature verifications, or anything else” — no matter the just concluded state-led audit of mail-in ballot signatures in nearby Cobb County, where investigators didn’t find a single fraudulent ballot among some 15,000 ballots that were under review.

Besides also claiming that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are “virtually controlled by Stacey Abrams & the Democrats,” Trump also complained on Wednesday about Fox News coverage. To be clear: Fox continues to actively provide a platform for ludicrous Trump-allied conspiracy theories, but Trump freaked out about the very basic level of scrutiny that the network provides. Trump petulantly complained that Fox “is almost as bad as watching Fake News” CNN — CNN does not peddle and has never peddled “fake news,” however.

Trump just keeps pushing lies.
