While Georgia formally certified Biden as the victor on Friday after its Republican Secretary of State withstood pressure from Trump and his acolytes to invalidate a large number of ballots, GOP lawmakers in MI said after a meeting with the lame duck President that they had no information "that would change the outcome of the election" while pledging they will follow the law and the normal process of awarding the state's electors to the candidate who won the popular vote.

Two prominent Republican senators on Thursday ripped President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the presidential election in MI, with one going so far as to call the President's strategy "undemocratic".

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) on Friday expressed confidence in the accuracy of his state's hand recount, which reaffirmed Biden's 12,284-vote lead, amid a barrage of attacks from Trump's legal team alleging unsubstantiated claims about widespread fraud.

CNN reports: "A person familiar with Friday's meeting said the session was cordial as the group explained to the President the process for certifying the election and assigning electors in their state".

Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield said they would be vigilant in making sure the process is fair but added they saw no evidence that was likely to give Trump a win in the state where Biden leads by more than 150,000 votes.

"It's an abuse of office, it's an open attempt to intimidate election officials, it's absolutely appalling", Bob Bauer, a legal adviser to the Biden campaign, told reporters.

Biden is the first Democrat to carry Georgia since 1992.

She recalled the 2016 transition period, claiming that at the time there were "no calls for unity" as many Democrats refused to attend Trump's inauguration and "sought to deny his victory". There were no calls for unity, there were no calls for healing. "As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct", Raffensperger said in a statement Friday morning.
