McEnany then appeared on the news channel last night claiming to have compiled 500 affidavits from witnesses who alleged 11,000 incidents of fraud.

The Trump campaign has refused to accept the result of the election – after networks, including Fox News, announced Joe Biden as the President-elect.

Trump has launched lawsuits is a number of battleground states alleging widespread voter fraud.

McEnany held up the dossier on air last night which she said contained 234 pages of statements from voters.

She said: "We keep hearing the drum beat of where is the evidence but right here 234 pages of sworn affidavits, from real people, real allegations, signed with notaries.

"In one county, Wayne County, Michigan, in one batch of ballots, 60 percent had the same signatures, 35 had no voter record but were counted anyway, 50 ballots were run multiple times through a machine.

"One woman said her son was deceased but still voted.

"This is one county where our poll watchers were threatened with racial harassment, pushed out of the way, and Democratic challengers were handing out documents saying how to distract GOP challengers."

She added: "The president wants justice for the 72million plus forgotten men and women of this country."

This comes as Trump’s campaign said yesterday it would file a lawsuit to stop Michigan from certifying its election results.

The lawsuit will request that election results in the swing state not be certified until it can be verified that votes were cast lawfully, Trump campaign attorney Matt Morgan said.

However, judges have already tossed lawsuits in Michigan and Georgia brought by the campaign and legal experts say Trump’s litigation has little chance of changing the outcome of the election.

Later in the day, Democrats Pennsylvania postal worker Richard Hopkins had recanted his fraud allegations, according to the Postal Service’s internal watchdog.

The House of Representatives Oversight Committee said on Twitter that Hopkins did not explain why he made up the allegations.

Bob Bauer, a senior Biden adviser, dismissed the Trump campaign’s litigation as “theatrics, not really lawsuits.”

Why Trump is taking his election battle to court

Trump has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan to demand better access for Republican observers to locations where ballots are being counted.

A statement from the campaign said in Michigan that they haven't been given "meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law."

The Georgia lawsuit filed in Chatham County essentially asks a judge to ensure the state laws are being followed on absentee ballots  

The Trump campaign also filed a lawsuit to intervene in a Pennsylvania case at the Supreme Court that deals with whether ballots received up to three days after the election can be counted.

A spokesman for Trump’s team said: “This is the most important election of our lifetime, and President Trump made clear our path forward last night: ensure the integrity of this election for the good of the nation.

“Bad things are happening in Pennsylvania. Democrats are scheming to disenfranchise and dilute Republican votes. President Trump and his team are fighting to put a stop to it.”

Separately in Nevada, GOP lawyers had already launched legal challenges involving absentee votes in Nevada, specifically contesting local decisions.
