President-elect Donald J. Trump soundly defeated Hillary Clinton approximately one month ago, and since then Democrats have been in outright denial over the election results.
For weeks, far left Green Party candidate Jill Stein has been running around the country raising money to pay for an illegitimate recount in three key battleground states: Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
Well, one federal judge has granted Stein’s request and ordered that Michigan move ahead with its planned recount. Clinton’s lawyers have already agreed to assist Ms. Stein with her recount efforts, so it is likely that Hillary herself supports the recount in order to undermine President-elect Trump.
Early Monday morning U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith issued his ruling, saying that a Michigan law requiring a two-business-day waiting period to begin a recount is likely in violation of voting rights.
In his decision, Judge Goldsmith argued that the “plaintiffs here have shown a credible threat that the recount, if delayed, would not be completed by the ‘safe harbor’ day. The fundamental right invoked by the Plaintiffs – the right to vote, and to have that vote conducted fairly and counted accurately – is the bedrock of our Nation. Without elections that are conducted fairly – and perceived to be fairly conducted – public confidence in our political institutions will swiftly erode.”
Michigan’s Republican Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a lawsuit last week opposing the recount, attacking Stein for her clearly politically motivated efforts: “It is inexcusable for Stein to put Michigan voters at risk of paying millions and potentially losing their voice in the Electoral College in the process.”
Given that there is no evidence any recount in Michigan would deny Trump his victory in the all-important swing state, it is clear that Clinton and Stein are hoping to steal the election away from Trump.
