    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The staffers of incumbent US President Donald Trump's re-election campaign have been allowed to interview witnesses in Nevada about suspected violations at the 3 November presidential election, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News.

    According to McEnany, the interviews with witnesses from Nevada may take place on Wednesday and Thursday.

    The White House press secretary has also accused the Democrats of obstructing Trump's team in interviewing witnesses and asking questions about the US elections.

    Trump himself said on Twitter that a "judge in Nevada has ordered Clark County officials to allow an inspection of the elections equipment and sealed containers," used in the election.

    ​Trump has previously promised to release "shocking" data on voting in Nevada. The president's representatives in Nevada filed a complaint with the state attorney's office, saying that 3,026 people who had previously left the state had voted illegally by mail.

    US media outlets have projected Democratic nominee Joe Biden to be the winner of the 3 November presidential election and election officials in several battleground states have certified his victory. Biden declared victory in a national address but so has Trump, who said his victory was stolen via massive fraud.

    Trump has sought recounts in several states and filed lawsuits in state and federal courts, saying only legal votes should be counted and illegal votes should be discarded. Some states have said they found no evidence of substantial fraud and irregularities.
