Clinton's lawyer files motion to join Wisconsin recount lawsuit

Hillary Clinton's lawyer filed a motion in a Wisconsin county court on Tuesday requesting to sign on to Jill Stein's recount lawsuit as an "intervenor," according to Dade County court records.

Stein, the Green Party's presidential nominee, initiated the civil suit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission on Monday. She claimed the voting machines were flawed and those in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania had security issues. The commission has refused to require all ballots be recounted by hand and left it up to each county whether ballots are recounted manually or electronically.

Joshua Kaul, an attorney for Clinton, has filed a memo in support of the hand recount.

Over the weekend, the Clinton campaign's general counsel Marc Elias wrote that it did not have reason to believe the election was rigged, adding it "had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology." But Elias added: "Now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides."
