Additionally, the Stein campaign lawyer Lawrence Otter said a lawsuit on behalf of 100 Pennsylvania voters was filed asking for a statewide vote recount.

"We should all want to know the final count of this election, which was closer than many people realize, and identify any voter suppression or irregularities that are subverting our democracy", Rodell Mollineau, a Democratic operative who previously advised Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, said Monday in an interview.

"Americans deserve a voting system we can trust", Stein said in a statement. But what she's required to pay will only offset a fraction of the cost to the state - the rest will fall to state taxpayers, says Republican political consultant Stu Sandler.

Trump narrowly won Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and, as of Wednesday, held a lead of nearly 11,000 votes in MI, with the results awaiting state certification Monday.

The state awards its 16 electoral votes to Trump, giving him a total of 306 of the 538 available, well above the 270 threshold a candidate needs to win the presidency, Efe news agency reported.

Stein also disputed critics who say she is wasting money or personally profiting off fundraising for recount efforts.

The latest numbers show that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.2 million votes and that apparently is gnawing at the president-elect who won a convincing electoral college victory, which is all that really matters anyway. He spent Sunday on a 12-hour Twitter offensive that included quoting Clinton's concession speech, in which she said the public owed Trump "an open mind and the chance to lead".

There's been no evidence of widespread tampering or hacking that would change the results; indeed, Clinton's team said it had been looking for abnormalities and found nothing that would alter the results.

"Unless there are 1,370,000+ miscounted votes, this is a stunt", he added.

"Our General Counsel has reviewed the Election Contest and said it is totally and completely without any merit".

Trump has a follow-up meeting Tuesday with the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, who has become a symbol of the internal divisions agitating the transition team.

The issue here being that Stein missed the deadline for a voter-initiated recount.

The Green Party also notified the MI elections board that it will seek a recount of the president election results.

In Wisconsin, where Trump defeated Clinton by a percentage point, the bipartisan state Elections Commission announced plans to begin a recount on Thursday, provided that proper payment for the recount has been received by the state.

According to a statement, Former Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein and Former Reform Party Presidential Candidate Roque De La Fuente need to submit payment of almost $3.5 million to the commission by 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
