Sen. Tom Cotton Friday insisted that it is time for the Trump campaign to present evidence of fraud and illegal activities rather than hold press conferences where claims are made. 

"I think we are at the point that we need the evidence to be produced in court," the Arkansas Republican said on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Friday, in response to a contentious press conference headed by President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani and campaign attorneys Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis. 

"Rudy Giuliani and the president's lawyers have multiple lawsuits filed around the country, but we are to the point though where this is not the time for politicians or press conferences," Cotton said. "That was during the election. This is a time for evidence in court."

Giuliani and the other attorneys on Thursday outlined what he called "massive fraud" that they said was conducted on behalf of Joe Biden, including accusations that voter software was manipulated to pull votes away from Trump and give them to his Democrat rival. 

Meanwhile, Cotton said he's focusing on the upcoming runoff election in Georgia that could determine which party controls the Senate. He said the race has "gone into overtime," as Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, the two Republicans, try to defend their seats against Democrat challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. 

"I can tell you having been in Georgia yesterday, people there don't intend to let [Sen.] Chuck Schumer take Georgia or to change America," said Cotton. "His kind of change means packing the court, raising your taxes, making Washington, D.C., a state, taking away your health insurance on the job, taking away your guns, giving amnesty to illegal immigrants. That's not what Georgia wants."

He added that he thinks there needs to be more authentication of signatures on absentee ballots, so that if signatures don't match up, the ballots aren't counted. 

"It wasn't done effectively enough on the election on Nov. 3," said Cotton. That ended up leading to the vote recount that has concluded with Georgia certifying Biden's win over Trump.
