Hillary Clinton Calls for Recount in 3 States

On behalf of Hillary Clinton, Dr. Jill Stein has formally filed for a Vote Recount in Wisconsin and will soon do the same for Michigan and Pennsylvania (WI, PA, and MI). At the time of this writing, Ms. Stein has raised almost $6 million dollars, which she says covers Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, but is still requesting more to cover Michigan.

Hillary Clinton waited almost 3 weeks before having Jill Stein initiate the Recount. They now know the exact amount of votes that Trump won by, which has raised the speculation that they may be planning a rigged Recount. The mainstream media has reacted slowly to the recount news, which is strange given that almost all of them openly supported Hillary Clinton. Expect the recount momentum to pickup after the holiday weekend.

Despite the fact that Clinton’s Campaign Legal Counsel has stated “the number of votes separating Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the closest of these states—Michigan—well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount”, the Clinton Campaign will now “participate” in the vote recount efforts in all 3 states. Marc Erik Elias, the Clinton Campaign Legal Counsel has also reiterated what is already well known, that they had “not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology. See complete statement at Medium.

So what’s going to happen in the next two weeks? Federal law requires that all recounts be finished 35 days after the election, which is Dec. 13. One or both of the candidates will be required to pay for the recount.

On December 13, 2016, the States must make final decisions in any controversies over the appointment of their electors at least six days before the meeting of the Electors. This is so their electoral votes will be presumed valid when presented to Congress. Decisions by states’ courts are conclusive, if decided under laws enacted before Election Day. On December 19, 2016, the Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. (https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/electoral-college/key-dates.html)

Whatever the outcome, be assured that our nation is in for a rocky ride.

I will leave it to the reader to decide whether Clinton’s assessment on the state of our democracy regarding the acceptance of the election process also pertains to her:

This is amazing that this is now going on, but it is quite legal and part of the democracy. I didn’t vote for either candidate but Hillary is beyond a doubt a scary lady, and I think she would take revenge on people if she got into the white house. Trump is already cooking up business deals to add jobs to the economy. On the other hand, Hillary’s first deed in office would be the No-Fly zone over Syria so she could commence in finishing off this already destroyed nation.
