Hours later, Trump tweeted, "Big voter fraud information coming out concerning Georgia". Stay tuned!' Trump tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Georgia dealt Mr Trump another blow by certifying Mr Biden's razor-thin margin of victory.

'I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct.

"But because I've been part of the process, I've had to be more guarded", he said. The two Congressmen admit they "have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election".

Until now, Republicans in Congress have mostly said Trump should have latitude in pursuing legal claims of wrongdoing in the election.

Biden, a Democrat, is preparing to take office on January 20, but Trump, a Republican, has refused to concede and is seeking to invalidate or overturn the results through lawsuits and recounts in a number of states, claiming - without proof - widespread voter fraud.

The result in Georgia gave Biden 306 electoral votes, a total that Trump called a "landslide" when states delivered him that number in 2016.

It is focusing on MI and Pennsylvania for now, but even if both those states flipped to the president he would need to overturn the vote in another state to vault ahead of Biden in the Electoral College.

Yet on Saturday morning, he also continued to claim that fraud would be unearthed in MI.

President Donald Trump posted a statement from MI lawmakers about their White House meeting with Trump, then claimed that the true outcome of the meeting was that "Massive voter fraud will be shown!"

'This is true, but much different than reported by the media. We will show massive and unprecedented fraud!'

Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey will meet with President Donald Trump at the White House Friday afternoon, a source familiar with the plans told CNN, as Trump and his legal team continue to mount a long-shot effort to overturn the results of the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden. "And they've got to prove it in court", Sullivan said.

Their statement also included language saying fraud should be "taken seriously" and be prosecuted if uncovered.

Julie Campbell-Bode is the Board Chair and says, "the last voices that they heard before getting onto that place to fly down to the White House was the voices of the people". Having taken in more than an initial $7 million target largely from wealthy donors, they turned to their campaign's vast mailing list of small donors, asking - according to a fundraising note - for contributions as small as $25.

Mitt Romney, the Utah Senator who has been a Trump critic, wrote on Twitter late Thursday that Trump had failed to make a "plausible case" of widespread election fraud, and was now trying to pressure state and local officials to overturn the election.

Trump responded by firing the head of his agency, Chris Krebs.
