Trump later fired the former department head Chris Krebs earlier this month. Lawsuits filed by Trump campaign lawyers and Trump supporters have also crumbled in recent weeks.

"I think that there will be a lot of things happening between now and the 20th of January," Trump told reporters at the White House.
