Hillary and her fellow Demonrats are trying every trick in their crooked book to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election.
One of the methods is vote recount, ostensibly because, as reported by New York magazine, “a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers” who “refuse to speak on the record,” believe they’ve found “persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked.” Blah, blah, blah.
In that effort, Hillary’s stalking horse is Green Party candidate Jill Stein.
How do we know Stein is fronting for Hillary? Because Stein received zero Electoral College vote and a paltry 1.04% of the popular votes (or 1.39 million votes) in the 2016 presidential election, which means there is no way any vote recount can conceivably improve Stein’s chances of winning the election, which then raises the question why she would demand a pointless vote recount.
Half a month later, Stein’s vote recount effort is now dead in the water.
Last Wednesday, December 7, U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith ended Michigan’s recount after three days, citing a state court ruling that found Jill Stein, who finished fourth in the state on Nov. 8 with 1.07% of the vote, had no legal standing to request a recount because she didn’t have a chance of winning even after a recount and therefore isn’t an “aggrieved” candidate.

This morning, a federal judge blocked Stein’s demand to to force a recount in Pennsylvania where President-elect Donald Trump beat Hillary by about 44,000 votes out of six million cast – less than 1%.
Announcing his ruling, US District Judge Paul Diamond said: “There is no credible evidence that any ‘hack’ occurred, and compelling evidence that Pennsylvania’s voting system was not in any way compromised.” (BBC News)
Diamond also said Stein’s lawsuit last week for a vote recount suffered from a lack of standing, potentially the lack of federal jurisdiction, as well as an “unexplained, highly prejudicial” wait in filing four weeks after the Nov. 8 election.
This afternoon, the Wisconsin Elections Commission announced that the vote recount in Wisconsin ended with a net gain of 131 votes for Trump over Hillary. HA HA HA HA!
The recount resulted in a net increase of 837 ballots for a total of 2.976 million. Trump gained 844 votes from the recount; Hillary gained 713 votes — which increases Trump’s win in Wisconsin by 131 votes to a total of 22,748 votes. (Wisconsin State Journal)
