U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign team has filed a lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania alleging its mail-in voting system for last week's presidential election lacked transparency and verifiability.
It seeks an emergency injunction to stop state officials from certifying Joe Biden's win in Pennsylvania, the success which gave him enough electoral college votes to be certain of victory.
The BBC's Ben Wright has this report.
The president has continued to make allegations of fraud without providing any evidence.
Only a handful of senior Republicans have accepted Joe Biden's victory and the party's leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, said President Trump was entitled to explore legal challenges.
In response, the Democratic senator for New York, Chuck Schumer, called Mr. Trump's claims extremely dangerous and poisonous to U.S. democracy and urged Republicans to condemn the president's rhetoric.
Donald Trump shows no sign of conceding soon or helping Joe Biden with the transition.
But this evening, the normally supportive Fox News cut away from a Trump campaign press conference, saying they had no claims to back up their claims of election fraud.
