Trump’s Lawyers Prove This Recount Is A Mess

  • Trump’s lawyers argued Thursday that Stein should not be allowed to seek the recount because she was not “aggrieved”.
  • “[The law] has never been understood to permit challenges by bottom-dwelling (and thus not aggrieved) candidates like Stein,” the argued.
  • Michigan’s Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican, backed the Trump campaign’s arguments Friday, and asked the state Supreme Court to block the recount.

Michigan’s elections board will consider Friday a request from President-elect Donald Trump to block a hand recount of the state’s 4.8 million votes cast asked for by Green Party’s Jill Stein – who Trump’s lawyers called a “bottom-dwelling candidate.”

Trump’s lawyers argued Thursday that Stein should not be allowed to seek the recount because she was not “aggrieved” as the potential miscount could not conceivably have cost her the election. They also argued that Stein waited so late to file her recount petition, which the candidate filed Wednesday, that it will be impossible to finish by the Dec. 13 deadline.

“Stein, in fact, finished no higher than fourth in any state where she appeared on the ballot. Yet despite being just a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Michigan’s electoral process,” they wrote in their filing.

“[The law] has never been understood to permit challenges by bottom-dwelling (and thus not aggrieved) candidates like Stein,” the argued.

The objections from Trump’s team suspends the planned Friday start of the recount until next week. A recount is already underway in Wisconsin, and Stein is also pushing for a court-ordered statewide recount in Pennsylvania. Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in the election – all states that pollsters had predicted would go to Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Michigan’s Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican, backed the Trump campaign’s arguments Friday, and asked the state Supreme Court to block the recount.

Stein blasted what she called Trump’s “cynical efforts to delay the recount and create unnecessary costs for taxpayers,” which she called “shameful and outrageous.”

Stein has argued, without any evidence, that irregularities in the vote suggests there could have been a cyberattack on voting machines that tampered with the vote. She says the only way to be sure is to verify the vote through a recount.

Experts cast doubt on the efficacy of the recounts, saying that it was unlikely they would flip anything close to the number of votes to change the outcome in any of the states in question.

“This is certainly not Bush v. Gore,” Mike Haas, Wisconsin’s chief elections administrator, told The Associated Press.

The Wisconsin recount was estimated to cost about $3.9 million. Stein paid $973,250 for the requested recount in Michigan. Michigan’s Republican secretary of state, Ruth Johnson, has said a recount could cost $5 million total.

    The pagan libs and their POS (Party of Satan) Demoncrat party will do ~whatever~ is necessary to win.

  • Philip Gaynor says:

    Anything involving the Democratic party is a lie and most of the politicians in the democratic party endorses plans to take over the USA and turn it into a country where the elites have total control over everyone just exactly like all the communist countries that’s why the democrats want to get rid of all the gun, so the takeover is easier for the evil people. All the people involved in the riots are just paid puppets to cause an easier takeover. The left is behind most of the unrest they are helping the communist cause become victorious unless the honest people stand up to this blatant takeover try. The people who voted for Hillary and who voted for the Clinton’s
    +Obama are helping the Democrats with the destruction of the USA.
