Well, what do we have here?
Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson issued a statement saying that Donald Trump’s lawyers have filed an objection to the presidential election recount there.
The statement read, “The Michigan Bureau of Elections today received an objection from representatives of Donald J. Trump regarding the presidential election recount that was filed yesterday by Green Party nominee Jill Stein. Under Michigan law, the recount is halted when the Board of State Canvassers resolves the objection. The board, which by law must resolve the complaint within five days, is scheduled to consider resolution of the objection, tomorrow, Dec. 2. If the objection is not adopted by the board, the recount can commence the second business day following the board’s decision. If the board adopts the objection, the recount would be ended.”
In Trump’s lawsuit, his attorneys wrote:
“Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein received barely 1 percent of the vote in the 2016 Michigan presidential election, finishing over 2.2 million votes behind the winner,” they wrote.
“Stein, in fact, finished no higher than fourth in any state where she appeared on the ballot,” they added. “Yet despite being just a blip on the electoral radar, Stein has now commandeered Michigan’s electoral process.
“Simply put, Michigan should not grant this lawless, insulting request, and its voters should not risk having the Electoral College door knocked off its hinges, all because a 1-percent candidate is dissatisfied with the election’s outcome.”
Trump on Monday was named the winner in Michigan, the last state to be awarded in the election. He won the state by 10,704 votes.
So, why is Trump paying attorneys millions to stop the recount? What is Trump hiding, or what is he afraid of??
