Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul tweeted a continuation of outgoing president Donald Trump’s debunked conspiracy theory that random nefarious forces changed votes in the early morning hours after Election Day, when in fact, the vote counts changed as mail-in ballots were counted.
Interesting . . . Trump margin of “defeat” in 4 states occurred in 4 data dumps between 1:34-6:31 AM. Statistical anomaly? Fraud? Look at the evidence and decide for yourself.(That is, if Big Tech allows u to read this)

Paul failed to note that states like Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin would not allow early counting of mail-in ballots until Election Day–or in Pennsylvania’s case, until after the Election Day ballots were tallied.
Paul also throws in bait for his conspiracy-loving followers, claiming that “Big Tech” was suppressing discussion of his debunked claims.
