Green Party candidate Jill Stein on Friday filed for a recount in Wisconsin. She is raising funds for similar efforts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Stein on Saturday defended her push after Trump called it a "scam" to fill Green Party coffers.

“The point to drive home here is that having a secure elections process benefits us all,” Stein said during an appearance on CNN’s “Newsroom.”

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

Marc Elias, the campaign’s general counsel, emphasized that analysts employed by the campaign have largely found no evidence to conclude that the election was sabotaged.

“The campaign is grateful to all those who have expended time and effort to investigate various claims of abnormalities and irregularities,” Elias wrote in a Medium post. “While that effort has not, in our view, resulted in evidence of manipulation of results, now that a recount is underway, we believe we have an obligation to the more than 64 million Americans who cast ballots for Hillary Clinton to participate in ongoing proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported.”

He also tweeted about the effort late Sunday night, after the president elect tweeted several more times about voter fraud. 

 

Trump later blasted the participation of "badly defeated & demoralized Dems," saying they initially asked for "election night tabulation" to be accepted.
