Collins also condemned Trump's efforts to prevent state election officials from certifying their results.

US President-elect Joe Biden will name on Tuesday the first picks to be part of his administration, his chief of staff said, as Donald Trump refuses to concede his loss to the Democrat.

Biden has already decided on at least one cabinet position.

Biden said on Thursday he had chosen a treasury secretary.

The Trump campaign had asked the court to order the Pennsylvania Department of State to not certify its presidential election results because some counties contacted and permitted voters to fix mistakes with their mail ballot declarations while others did not.

"To ensure that he is remembered for these outstanding accomplishments, and to help unify our country, President Trump should accept the outcome of the election and facilitate the presidential transition process", Toomey said. Experts had warned for months that there would be a lengthy vote count and that a result may not be known on the night of the election, or even days afterward. "It's absolutely counter to everything this country was founded on".

Judge Brann's 37-page opinion sets forth a variety of reasons for dismissing the case.

"Thousands of people, including the people operating the voting machines", must have been involved in the conspiracy, Powell estimated.

CNN reported that Brann went on to reprimand the Trump's campaign lawyers for not presenting factual proof for seeking to invalidate so many votes in the key battleground state. Judge Brann rejected these arguments. " "Instead, this court was presented with tense, unfounded legal arguments and speculative accusations, unsupported in the spoken complaint and not supported by evidence".

The counties in the state are scheduled to certify their election results on Monday. But these are not normal times.

On Saturday, Trump's campaign requested a recount of votes in Georgia, a day after state officials certified results showing Biden beat Trump by 12,670 votes out of about 5 million cast, or 0.25%.

In Wisconsin, election officials accused Trump supporters of obstructing the state's recount of votes.

Biden has so far limited his criticism of Trump's actions, though he has spoken of "incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions", adding: "It's hard to fathom how this man thinks".

Maryland's Larry Hogan is among the few Republican governors who have acknowledged Biden's win.

Following Raffensperger's announcement, The Associated Press made its final call for the presidential election, projecting that Biden had won Georgia and received 306 electoral votes compared to Trump's 232, winning the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Trump's campaign has also filed a petition for another recount in Georgia.

In a report from Daily Caller, it was said that Giuliani claimed the Trump campaign "strategically chose to restructure".

The campaign said it "has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards".

The president's team insisted signature matching on absentee ballots was necessary to keep the recount from being a "sham" that allows "illegal votes to be counted". The president and his lawyers have made claims of criminality and widespread fraud, which they allege could impact election results.
