Hillary Clinton's Campaign to join Jill Stein's recount efforts --- Trump says it's all a scam


"SHE'S ALIVE -- HILLARY CHALLENGES ELECTION RESULTS" ---  DRUDGE REPORT HEADLINE


ACCORDING TO AP & BREITBART NEWS  STORIES: TRUMP SLAMS RECOUNT EFFORTS AS JUST "A SCAM" BY STEIN TO RAISE $$$$  &  SAYS ELECTION IS OVER, BUT DEFEATED AND DEMORALIZED DEMS ARE JOINING THE POINTLESS RECOUNT EFFORT


THE BREITBART NEWS  ACCOUNT

According to an article on the Breitbart News blog,   "Hillary Clinton’s campaign will participate in Jill Stein’s recount effort in Wisconsin, said campaign counsel Marc Elias Saturday — even though he noted her aides have seen no evidence that the election that gave Donald Trump the White House was unfair....  'We intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,' Elias said, adding that the campaign will do the same in Michigan and Pennsylvania if the Green Party candidate pursues recounts there, as she has promised....   (See "Trump Mocks Jill Stein, ‘Defeated, Demoralized Dems’ for ‘Ridiculous’ Recount ‘Scam’  "   by Breitbart Staff Writer, 11/26/16, Breitbart News/ Big Government  [http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/11/26/trump-mocks-jill-stein-defeated-demoralized-democrats-ridiculous-recount-scam/]).

The Breitbart report quoted President-Elect Trump as follows:   "Trump, who made no public comment when Stein filed her recount petition on Friday, released a statement within hours of Elias’s announcement....  'This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded,' Trump fumed, calling the recount effort 'ridiculous.'...   'This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than 1 percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money,’ the president-elect added.... "  Also in the Breitbart piece was a copy of a Trump tweet that said the following:  "...  The Green Party scam to fill up their coffers by asking for impossible recounts is now being joined by the badly defeated & demoralized Dems..."

THE AP ACCOUNT

The AP reported on this story as follows:   "President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday condemned a growing push to force recounts in three states pivotal to his Nov. 8 victory, confronting the Green Party-backed effort for the first time even as he worked to address key Cabinet vacancies....  The New York billionaire, who charged the election was 'rigged' on a daily basis before his victory, called the developing recount effort 'a scam' in a statement released by his transition team....   Trump had been ignoring Green Party nominee Jill Stein's fight to revisit vote totals in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Wisconsin officials announced late Friday they are moving forward with the first presidential recount in state history....  'The people have spoken and the election is over,'  Trump declared Saturday. He added, 'We must accept this result and then look to the future.'..."   (See "TRUMP SLAMS RECOUNT PUSH AS 'A SCAM,' SAYS ELECTION IS OVER" by Steve Peoples, 11/26/16, Associated Press   [http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_TRUMP?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2016-11-26-16-59-12]).

Gail, "The Hill" has several stories about "Jill Stein's" recent recount activities. Taken from earliest to most recent, they show the whole evolution of this issue, including POTUS-ELECT Trump's response and Jill Stein's attempt to justify all of it.

Gale, this is all your fault. You choked on calling the election for Trump for days and the chatter started.

Drudge and Breitbart went along with the results. Even National Review.

This is not the first time you screwed up an election. Just ask Tony C.

Are you happy now ?

UPDATE: THE "TRUMP OR TRUMP'S PEOPLE MUST BE READING MY BLOG" EDITION

TRUMP SAYS THAT IF YOU COUNTED ONLY LEGAL VOTES, HE WAS THE WINNER OF THE POPULAR VOTE

President Elect Donald Trump made Democrats' and the MSM's jaws drop with his stunning assertion that he was the winner of the popular vote if you were to count only votes thqat had been lawfully cast by legally registered voters..... (See e.g. "Donald Trump, citing no evidence, claims 'millions' of people voted illegally in the 2016 election" by Reena Flores, 11/27/16, CBS News [http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-millions-voted-illegally-for-hillary-clinton/]) wherein CBS News reported that "President-elect Donald Trump is alleging that he would have won the nation’s popular vote if it weren’t for the “millions of people who voted illegally,” during a series of tweets in which he panned the recount efforts that could take place soon in three states.... Mr. Trump expressed his feelings Sunday afternoon on the “so-called popular vote” on Twitter...."

If the president elect's claim seems familiar to you, it might be because I had posted a featured item entitled "FLASH UPDATE: THE ' "BIG LIE" ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON IN THE AFTER-MATH OF THE 2016 ELECTION --- THAT SHE WON SOMETHING CALLED "THE POPULAR VOTE" ' EDITION," which posited all the significant points raised by Mr. President Elect Trump (See my main post dated November 14, 2016, below on this blog, "FLASH UPDATE: THE " 'BIG LIE' ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON IN THE AFTER-MATH OF THE 2016 ELECTION --- THAT SHE WON SOMETHING CALLED 'THE POPULAR VOTE' " EDITION" [http://galewynmassey.blogspot.com/2016/11/flash-update-big-lie-about-hillary.html]).

Why not have a recount? Somebody hacked the DNC for Trump. Why not hack the voting machines?

This recount should never be compared to any other as we are now moving on to a new issue of computer hacking. I would like to know if anything was hacked. Stein has the money to do it & I hope she does.

Didn't the ABC show "Scandal" have the scenario of computer fraud leading to the election of a president as a main part of its story line years ago? Olivia Pope tried to keep that all covered up because she was part of the election team that scammed the election.

Even though Jill Stein's recount is based on a premise as fictitious as anything that was on "Scandal" - people are pretending that there's something real in her inquiry - so far there's nothing to it.

Lots of people seem to be nervous about counting votes.

I hear the big boy is skipping town. Good idea after what the Judge was told about how he runs a credentials committee.

Yeah idiot and then the Penn count ended.

The vote in Pennsylvania goes from Trump winning by 49k to 20k? Something is very wrong besides the vote count.
