After President Donald Trump’s campaign legal team insisted on comparing registered voter signatures with those on the ballots’ envelopes, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, authorized it.
The comparison of signatures will be done by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) in Cobb County, however, it will not include checking whether the registered signatures of the voters match those on the ballots, according to Fox News on Dec. 14.
President Trump has been very active in defending electoral transparency in the country and complained about the collaboration of Gov. Brian Kemp and Raffensperger to refuse check if the signatures match those on the ballots, “What a fool Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is. It could have been so easy, but now we have to do it the hard way.”
“Demand this clown call a Special Session and open up signature verification, NOW. Otherwise, could be a bad day for two GREAT Senators on January 5th,” he added.

In this message Trump referred to the vote that will be held on Jan. 5, 2021, to elect the senators of Georgia. Republican candidates David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, and Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will run in the close campaign.
This election is crucial for the Republican Party to maintain its majority in the Senate. At the moment, 50 Republican-elected senators and 48 Democrats are confirmed, so victory for candidates Perdue and Loeffler would ensure a comfortable margin in favor.
Certainly, the convulsive acts of electoral corruption observed in several states, including Georgia, have demanded intense work from the Trump campaign’s legal team, and some lawsuits are still pending.
Twitter user @CesareSacchetti points out that in the month remaining before Jan. 6, an important date on the calendar of the electoral process but not definitive, events favorable to Trump’s re-election may occur.
“This week Trump should receive the report on foreign interference in the elections. Trump can arrest those who planned the fraud,” tweeted @CesareSacchetti.
He added, “The scenario of the upcoming election is increasingly likely. There is also the option of martial law. There is plenty of time until Jan. 6. It is not over.”
