Michigan calls Trump headquarters lawsuit groundless

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson called the lawsuit by the headquarters of US President Donald Trump to suspend the counting of votes in the state as groundless. RIA Novosti quoted her words.

The counting follows the rules, Benson said.

“This is a baseless claim. This is a true example of the type of misinformation designed to sow doubts among our voters about the credibility of our electoral process, ”she said, adding that polling station and election officials followed all the rules from the moment they were counted and counted every vote.

Benson stressed that people from both parties were present at the count.

Earlier, Trump's headquarters filed a lawsuit to suspend the counting of votes in Michigan. After counting 99 percent of the state vote, Joe Biden won 50.3 percent of the popular vote, while Trump got 48.1 percent.

In the United States, the counting of votes for candidates for the presidency of the country continues. The current head of state, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, who served as vice president under Barack Obama, are fighting for the top post. In many states, the difference between presidential contenders is tenths of a percent.
