Controversial Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) lied to the audience at a rally in Perry, Georgia on Saturday.
While warming up the crowd ahead of Donald Trump's speech, the first-term representative lied about the elections in her state.
"And there's something that all of us know in Georgia, Trump won Georgia," Greene said, even though the initial tabulation and two hand recounts proved that statement is a lie.
"And that's why I'm calling for an audit in Georgia, it's time to do it," she said, even though the election was over ten months ago.
Even though the controversial audit in Arizona showed Trump was an even bigger loser than was announced in November, Trump has refused to accept reality and instead argued that the opposite result was found.
"I will be discussing the winning results of the Arizona Forensic Audit, which will show 44,000 possibly illegal ballots cast, tomorrow at the Great State of Georgia rally, which will be packed!" Trump emailed to reporters late Friday evening.
A CNN fact-check found "Trump's claims of fraud in Georgia remain completely baseless."
Trump is currently under criminal investigation in Georgia for his efforts to overturn the state's 2020 election, which was won by Joe Biden.
One of the most experienced former White House staffers in America warned of the unraveling of America during a Saturday appearance on CNN.
David Gergen served as director of speechwriting for President Richard Nixon, communications director for Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, and counselor to the president under Bill Clinton.
CNN's Pamela Brown said, "as someone who has advised so many presidents, who cares so much about American democracy, how concerned are you about the future U.S. elections with this backdrop of the 'Big Lie'?"
"I'm very concerned," Gergen replied.
"I think that we're in more, we're in potentially more danger than we were six months ago, a year ago. Listen, the bleakest scenario is that all the efforts that are being made now between Democrats and Republicans on where we're going to go on the economy and pandemic, you know, that all these talks may collapse and we in government may be seen as dysfunctional," he explained.
"The Republicans then use this in 2022 to take back the House and set themselves up for 2024. Trump could go on as crazy as he is now, he gets crazier as it goes along. You can see all this coming together at an outcome in 2024," he continued.
"If Trump were to be re-elected, all hell is going to break loose in this country. On the other hand, if his supporters think it's been stolen from him after 2024, all hell could break loose on that side, too. So I think we're in pretty treacherous territory right now," Gergen warned.
"Those are not very good options you just laid out there, David Gergen," Brown said. "Pretty terrifying."
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Saturday warned "the next few days will be a time of intensity" as the House of Representatives rushes to pass a slew of bills by the end of September.
In a "dear colleague" letter written to members of the Democratic Caucus, Pelosi argued Democrats to one week to "pass a Continuing Resolution, Build Back Better Act and the BIF" (Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework).
She said "September 30th is a date fraught with meaning."
Pelosi explained both the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework and the reconciliation bill were key to delivering President Joe Biden's agenda.
"We must pass the BIF to avoid the expiration of the surface transportation funding on September 30. And we must stay on schedule to pass the reconciliation bill so that we can Build Back Better," she explained. "The Build Back Better Act is a jobs bill for the future: addressing the empowerment of women in the workplace and creating good-paying green jobs by tackling the climate crisis. The jobs initiatives relating to child care, home health care, paid family and medical leave, universal pre-K and more are transformative."
Pelosi announced the Democratic Caucus will meet on Monday at 5:30 p.m.
