President-elect Trump's claim of election fraud rejected by White House

That's close to the $7 million she posted as a goal and millions more than the roughly $3.5 million she raised during her entire presidential bid. The campaign also says that on Wednesday it will request a MI recount.

Elections officials were adamant that a hack was all but impossible.

MI has 16 electoral college votes.

Clinton would have to overturn the outcome in all three states to win the presidency in the Electoral College, but her aides have acknowledged that the margin in all three states is greater than has ever been overcome in a presidential recount.

Stein won no states and wouldn't directly or immediately benefit from a recount - nor would she likely be able to topple Trump. And The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that a Pennsylvania Department of State spokeswoman said that the deadline for filing for the voter-requested recount was last Monday, Nov. 21.

A Republican lawyer says the courts lack authority to order a statewide recount.

Mark Brewer told the Board of State Canvassers that the recount petition will be filed on Wednesday. Wisconsin Elections Commission Chairman Mark Thomsen, a Democrat, said he expected Trump to still be the victor after the recount. His remarks came after a special meeting of the commission to plan for the recount.

"During that process, we have seen Secretary Clinton's vote total grow, so that, today, her national popular vote lead now exceeds more than 2 million votes". The three Midwestern states - long Democratic bastions - all went for Trump in the recent election and were the key to his victory in the Electoral College, although Clinton won handily in the nationwide popular vote. "I've never seen this kind of attack on poll workers, and how this system works", Thomsen said. Stein is also challenging the vote in Pennsylvania and MI.

Elections officials maintain there's been no evidence of hacking or voter fraud.

Stein has yet to point to a specific reason for the recount, but data experts have suggested there is a discrepancy between results in electronic and paper ballots. About 5 percent are cast on touch-screen machines.

But Green Party candidate Jill Stein says not so fast. Stein stated the importance of building trust in the voting process and her hope that "Americans of all parties can be sure we have a fair, secure and accurate voting system".

There is no evidence that Wisconsin voting machines were hacked.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission has voted unanimously to reject a request from Green Party candidate Jill Stein to conduct a hand recount of the presidential vote.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla called Trump's allegations unsubstantiated and Virginia Commissioner of Elections Edgardo Cortes said they were unfounded.

Stein would have to get a court order for a hand recount.

Trump denounced the Stein recount effort as "ridiculous" and "a scam". Three battlegrounds Hillary Clinton lost by a combined 100,000 votes, deciding the election.

Court papers filed Monday cite an affidavit by a University of MI computer scientist stating that results produced by electronic voting machines could've been manipulated by malware.

The affidavit notes the 2016 campaign was affected by an unprecedented scale of cyberattacks.

Meanwhile, the former campaign counsel for Hillary Clinton announced over the weekend they would participate in the recount. She's also expected to file in MI and Pennsylvania due to what computer scientists are calling "voter irregularities".
