_92677254_clintonvia: (bbc.com) – A lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s campaign says it will participate in a recount of US presidential election votes in the state of Wisconsin.

Officials there are preparing to conduct the process, which was initiated by Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein.

Dr Stein has also pledged to file for recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The result would need to be overturned in all three states to alter the outcome of the election.

Wisconsin was narrowly won by Donald Trump, and it appears unlikely that this will change after the recount.

The Clinton campaign’s general counsel, Marc Elias, said the Clinton team and outside experts had been “conducting an extensive review of election results, searching for any signs that the voting process had been tampered with”.
