Trump sent a handful of angry tweets directed at Raffensperger throughout December, with one saying the Georgia Secretary of State and other officials would be exclusively responsible if Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler were to lose their runoff elections January 5.
Raffensperger and other election officials who have rejected Trump's entreaties, in Georgia and other states, have received death threats from his supporters.
The state election board can refer the case to her office and the state attorney general, said Willis, a Democrat elected in November. And therefore, I won the state.
"Well, Mr. President, the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong", Raffensperger said at one point. "I promise you, come this Wednesday, we will have our day in Congress".
"The evidence of election fraud by Mr. Trump is now in broad daylight", the letter says. "We have other states that I believe we'll be flipping to us very shortly", Mr Trump said. "The truth will come out".
Members of the Electoral College cast presidential votes in statehouses around the country December 14, awarding Biden 306 votes to Trump's 232.
Accepting the Electoral College vote is typically a routine process.
Both Biden and Harris have campaigned hard in the state and raised millions in the quest to flip the Senate. On that day, all 50 American states and Washington, DC had certified electors who would vote for the victor of the presidential election. Colorado's nine presidential electors also went for Biden.
According to official results, Biden collected 306 electoral votes as opposed to 232 votes cast for Trump.
Along with the Constitution, Weiser cited a failed Texas lawsuit that sought to overturn results in four swing states, as well as a Supreme Court ruling reasserting the states' authority over the makeup of their Electoral College votes. For the upper house to return to the democratic fold, their candidates will have to win both seats, a hard bet.
In a separate action, Senator Josh Hawley had previously said he would join with some House Republicans to object to the certification of the election results. The president called himself a "schmuck" for endorsing Kemp, and appeared to threaten Raffensperger and Germany over alleged fraud, though there has been no evidence to support his claims ballots were illegally destroyed. He told Reuters that the law from 1887 is not explicit, but that most experts and judges interpret it in such a way that the Congress has no right to check the election results.
