The Green Party is taking its fight for a presidential recount in Pennsylvania to federal court.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

After dropping her case in state court, Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is asking a federal court for an emergency order forcing a recount in Pennsylvania. Stein had a message for the President-elect at a rally outside Trump Tower in New York City:

(Stein) "If you believe in the credibility of your victory, put down your arms. End your bureaucratic obstruction."

In Michigan, a judge ordered a hand recount of paper ballots to start today.
