WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Phillips said that vote recounts unlikely to change the election outcome.
"Remember a recount is just that," Phillips said in a tweet on Friday. "Findings go both ways. They are not changing any votes. Don't worry… DJT [Donald J. Trump] won."
Earlier this month, Phillips claimed in a series of tweets that his organization, votefraud.org, had found at least 2 million and as many as 3 million non-US citizens by examining a database of 180 million voter registrations.
Phillips’ charges have circulated on a number of conservative news websites.
However, Phillips has yet to disclose the methodology behind his conclusions, prompting skepticism among US corporate mainstream media, which has not reported the allegations.
However, numerous critics have pointed out that biased coverage by the mainstream media during the 2016 election has been unprecedented in scale and intensity, and has further prompted a significant portion of the US public to seek news on alternative and independent sites.
Green Party Candidate Jill Stein is raising money to fund recounts in three battleground US states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
At a press conference in the Wisconsin city of Milwaukee on Friday, the Green Party announced that a recount in that state could begin as early as Monday.
