He told Republicans they would have to provide evidence of the fraud to the Democratic Party and the Sierra Club, groups part of the lawsuit.

Democrats asked for information and documents that show the moves Republicans made to study fraud as it pertains to ballot drop-boxes and collections along with mail-in-ballots during the primary election, but the Trump campaign and the GOP refused.
