Donald Trump seems to be getting crazier as the wheels of democracy inexorably grind through the election process and he’s not able to stop the train. So, apparently, he’s going to drive it over a cliff, instead. In any event, he himself is going off the rails, more and more as the days tick by. Here’s his latest “beauty” as he would say, from Tuesday morning.

You can jump in the Twitter thread and kick in your own two cents, but Trump is seemingly obsessed with the idea of Brian Kemp exercising some kind of “emergency powers” and delivering him this election — which wouldn’t happen even if the 16 electoral votes from Georgia magically went into Trump’s column. But for reasons that perhaps his niece the psychologist can decipher, this is the way he’s playing it.

And it looks like he may well blow up the Georgia runoff elections in his madness. Good. Maybe this is the price the GOP needs to pay and frankly, it is a small one. Yesterday the Wall Street Journal ran a piece written by the CEO of Dominion voting systems, debunking the insane claims of Trump’s *lawyers*, who are his only allies at this point. Anyone sane or credible has long departed the field.

The allegations against Dominion are bizarre, but I’ll set the record straight. Dominion is an American company, now headquartered in Denver. Dominion is not and has never been a front for communists. It has no ties to Hugo Chávez, the late dictator of Venezuela. It has never been involved in Venezuelan elections. None of Dominion’s systems use the Smartmatic software that has come under attack, as any state certification lab could verify.

There is no secret “vote flipping” algorithm. Third-party test labs, chosen by the bipartisan Election Assistance Commission and accredited by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, perform complete source-code reviews on every federally certified tabulation system. States replicate this process for their own certifications. Postelection canvassing and auditing also exist to provide additional assurance of the vote totals’ accuracy.

The part of the election process on which Dominion focuses is highly regulated and certified. The company doesn’t work in noncertified areas such as voter-registration systems, poll books or signature-verification software, and it doesn’t provide vote-by-mail printing. Dominion voting machines do one thing: accurately tabulate votes from county-verified voters using a durable paper ballot controlled and secured by local elections officials.

This is a development to keep your eye on, Trump’s continued obsession with the State of Georgia. Mike Pence is going down there Friday and Trump is appearing Saturday. Pence will unquestionably attempt to do damage control and it’s anybody’s guess what Trump will do.
