Green Party-backed group wants a recount in Pennsylvania

Stein has maintained her activities are in no way meant to benefit Clinton, whom she leveled strong criticisms against during the 2016 election.

Local election officials were to provide the state with estimates Monday of how much the recount would cost. The effort for a full recount in Pittsburgh was short by 88 percent as the 4:30 p.m. deadline loomed.

"This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused", Trump said in a statement. "It is going to be very challenging for many of our canvassers and clerks".

"As long as the petition is valid...the commission must issue a recount order", Michael Haas, the commission's interim administrator, told The Wall Street Journal.

"The likelihood that a statewide recount would have an impact on the outcome is extremely small", FairVote spokeswoman Michelle Whittaker said.

Petraeus, a former Central Intelligence Agency director who resigned in 2012 after it emerged he had an extra-marital affair, has indicated that he would serve in Mr Trump's administration if asked. I mean, he won that county. Stein raised those concerns over the weekend.

"We've said many times there are a number of reasons that we're skeptical of claims that voting equipment isn't working correctly or tampered with in the state of Wisconsin", Haas said.

The billionaire tycoon and his lieutenants called the recount push the work of "crybabies" and, in Mr Trump's estimation, "sad".

Reports of at three least million undocumented immigrants voting in the election are floating around pro-Trump and conspiracy theory websites, including an article published on Infowars - a site that infamously calls Sandy Hook was a hoax - on November 14.

The state's governor, Scott Walker, doesn't think the recount will make a difference. According to her campaign, they've had lawyers, data scientists and analysts combing over election results starting "the day after the election", or the day of her otherwise thoughtful concession speech.

An attorney for Clinton's campaign said on Saturday it will participate in the Wisconsin recount.

During a meeting to discuss details of the Wisconsin recount on Monday, Thomsen expressed his disappointment in the president elect.

Stein is also advocating for recounts to take place in Pennsylvania and MI.

Trump won all three of those states by narrow margins, with the victories in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania contributing to his winning total of 290 electoral votes. The legal challenge, in part, relies on an affidavit from University of MI researcher and cybersecurity expert Alex Halderman, who argues foreign hackers, including Russian Federation, have the capability of unleashing undetectable malware on voting machines to interfere with US elections.
