President Donald Trump's allies are scrambling to legitimize his lies about widespread voter fraud tipping the 2020 election to President-elect Joe Biden.

Though not officially connected to the Trump campaign, far-right lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood have been some of the most visible faces in the Trump sphere's effort to undermine public faith in American democracy and secure another four years for Trump.

One of the targeted states of Trump and his allies is Georgia, which went blue for the first time in decades this year. Georgia's Republican Governor Brian Kemp and Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger have frequently found themselves on the receiving end of Trump's Twitter.

Trump continues to falsely accuse them of permitting election fraud by upholding the election results in favor of the candidate who received the most votes in the state: Joe Biden.

Both Powell and Wood echoed this flawed logic at a "Stop the Steal" rally in Georgia on Tuesday.

Lin Wood said Republican incumbent Senate candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue hadn't been forceful enough against non-existent election fraud and therefore hadn't earned Georgians' votes.

Watch below.

Wood called on them to publicly demand Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to call a special legislative session.

"Where's Kelly Loeffler here? Where's David Perdue? He oughta be standing right here. ... They have not earned your vote. Don't you give it to them. Why would you go back and vote in another rigged election for god's sake! Fix it! You gotta fix it!"

Powell agreed.

She said:

"I think I would encourage all Georgians to make it known that you will not vote at all until your vote is secure."

Trump's supporters cheered for both of the sentiments.

With 50 guaranteed Republican seats and 48 guaranteed Democratic seats. If Republicans lose both seats in the Georgia runoffs, there will be 50 Democratic Senators and 50 Republican Senators, leaving Vice President Kamala Harris to break any ties and awarding Democrats a functional majority of the Senate.

With the presidential election over, the Georgia Senate runoffs are the most consequential races in the nation.

It may not come as a surprise that Democrats, for once, agree with Sidney Powell and Lin Wood in their stance that Republicans in Georgia shouldn't vote for the Republican Senate candidates.

And some of Trump's supporters are buying it.

In the past, Lin Wood has encouraged Georgia voters to write in Trump's name in the runoff, though write-in candidates aren't an option on the runoff ballot.
