He added that the Justice Department has not uncovered evidence to corroborate claims of rigged voting machines.

President Donald Trump filed a new suit Tuesday in Wisconsin asking the state’s Supreme Court to exclude more than 200,000 absentee ballots in Milwaukee and Dane counties, alleging voters illegally cast them.
