A federal judge in Pennsylvania threw out a lawsuit by President Donald Trump's campaign that aimed to block certification of the state's election results unless it tossed out tens of thousands of mail-in ballots, rejecting the "startling" request due to a lack of evidence.
US congressman Cedric Richmond, Biden's pick for a senior White House post, told NBC's "Meet the Press" that Monday's expected certification of the Pennsylvania election results should prompt the Trump administration to begin co-operating with Biden's team.
Toomey also congratulated Biden and VP-elect Kamala Harris as he outright acknowledged that the former VP is now the President-elect. He has been launching baseless claims of voter fraud, baseless litigation.

"They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but when they go inside the courtroom they don't plead fraud and they don't argue fraud", Christie told ABC's "This Week", adding that "if you're unwilling to come forward and present the evidence, it must mean the evidence doesn't exist".
But Mr Trump's refusal to concede has raised concerns that he could cause long-term damage to Americans' trust in the voting system that underlies USA democracy.
While Biden has claimed victory, Trump launched a slew of litigations challenging the results in states that, in addition to Pennsylvania, also include Michigan, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona.
"If the President can not prove these claims or demonstrate that they would change the election result, he should fulfill his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by respecting the sanctity of our electoral process", Cheney said.
"You know what? The voters have spoken", Upton said. Counties must certify their results to Boockvar by Monday, after which she will make her own certification. "Those will be officially tabulated or should be tomorrow". The campaign wanted Brann to allow Pennsylvania's Republican-controlled state legislature to appoint electors who would back for Trump at the Electoral College vote on December 14.More news: Singapore-Hong Kong air travel bubble postponed
"And here again in MI it's not a razor thin margin, it's 154,000 votes", Upton said.
Brann said that he "has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens".
With Mr Trump refusing to acknowledge the election outcome, Mr Biden and his top aides have been denied briefings on sensitive domestic and foreign policy issues, most urgently the coronavirus pandemic battering the country.
"However, as I have done throughout my career, I will seek to work across the aisle with him and his administration, especially on those areas where we may agree, such as continuing our efforts to combat COVID-19, breaking down barriers to expanding trade, supporting the men and women of our armed forces, and keeping guns out of the hands of violent criminals and the dangerously mentally ill".

Republican Senator Kevin Cramer told NBC's Meet the Press that the start of the presidential transition process is overdue. "Frankly I'm embarrassed that more people in the party aren't speaking up". Everything Donald Trump's doing now is bad for our democracy.
