Outgoing President Donald Trump didn’t even bother to check if Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has a brother before claiming that the non-existent sibling works for China and is involved in some plot against him.

In yet another late night Twitter rant targeting Raffensperger for debunking his false claims of mass election fraud, Trump demanded that he be allowed to turn the state Republican by letting him and his campaign team conduct endless witch hunts for fraud that never happened.

Trump then whined about a consent decree agreed to by top Republicans in the state back in March and bizarrely compared it to the Iran nuclear deal before equally bizarrely claiming that Raffensperger has a brother who works for China.

According to the Associated Press, the consent decree Trump is crying about does not prevent officials from matching signatures on absentee ballots. In fact, Georgia has checked signatures on all ballots as required by law.

There is nothing in the consent decree that prevents Georgia election clerks from scrutinizing signatures. The legal settlement signed in March addresses accusations about a lack of statewide standards for judging signatures on absentee ballot envelopes.

It should be pointed out that the Iran nuclear deal was working until Trump withdrew our country from it. It should also be pointed out that Raffensperger does not have a brother.

Newsweek notes that Trump is referring to Ron Raffensperger, CTO of Chinese technology firm Huawei, but he and Brad Raffensperger are NOT related even though they share the same surname. It’s just another embarrassing and desperate ploy to somehow convince everyone that China interfered in the 2020 Election to make Trump lose.

These lies are going to get people hurt or killed, and it certainly damages our democratic process. Twitter needs to act now before January 20th. Not doing so is irresponsible and reckless.
