Hillary Clinton Hit With DEVASTATING Move After Demanding Recount
Last weekend, Hillary Clinton teamed up with Green Party candidate Jill Stein to demand a recount of election votes in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Days later, this move has already come back to bite Clinton in a big way…
Daily Mail reported that Democrats have now turned on Clinton, as many have admitted that a recount in these states won’t bring her a victory over Trump. They also said that Clinton’s push for a recount will only bring “further depression” to her supporters.
“It’s a waste of time and money. It is not going to change anything,” Joe Trippi, campaign manager of Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign, told The Hill.
John Kerry alum Robert Shrum added that there’s “no chance” the recount will change the results on the election. Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee has remained silent about the recount, as has Clinton herself, who has only spoken through her lawyers.
On Saturday, Clinton attorney Marc Elias said that though the gap between the Democrat and Donald Trump “well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount,” she will participate in the recount with Stein anyway.
“Regardless of the potential to change the outcome in any of the states, we feel it is important, on principle, to ensure our campaign is legally represented in any court proceedings and represented on the ground in order to monitor the recount process itself,” Elias said.
Trump is currently ahead of Clinton by over 70,000 votes in Pennsylvania and more than 22,000 votes in Wisconsin. Michigan was too close to call until yesterday, when it was revealed that Trump beat Clinton by 10,704 votes.
Center for American Progress head and Clinton ally Neera Tanden admitted on Monday that even the Democrat herself knows the recount won’t get her the presidency.
“She’s not expecting a change in the results, but she does want to make sure that the votes are counted,” Tanden said. “I think it’s a good process.”
Rumors are swirling that Clinton is simply trying to discredit Trump by dragging this recount process out in the hopes that it will increase her chances of beating him in the 2020 election. SHARE this story if you think Clinton should GIVE UP and ACCEPT Trump as her president!
