Ever since Green Party candidate Jill Stein first launched her demand for recounts in the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, conservatives have been laughing off what she’s doing thinking that there’d be no chance she’d be successful. However, Donald Trump just did something in Michigan that indicates he is starting to get worried about the possible recount…
Politicus USA reported that Trump filed an official objection in Michigan to Stein’s recount plans, which suggests he is getting nervous. The Michigan Secretary of State announced that Trump’s lawyers had filed the objection in this statement:
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 after the second business day following the board’s decision. If the board adopts the objection, the recount would be ended.
A copy of the objection is available online.
Because the objection was received, the recount activity that was scheduled to begin on Friday in Ingham and Oakland counties, and over the weekend in other counties has been postponed.
Trump’s team gave three specific objections to Stein’s recount in Michigan. The three objections are:
1. Stein was not aggrieved by the election results in the state.
2. A recount can’t happen because it would prevent Michigan’s electoral college votes from being counted.
3. Stein’s application for the recount was never properly signed and sworn.
If Trump had no worries about a recount in Michigan, he would not be wasting time fighting Stein on this issue. We can only hope that the recount movement goes no further, and that Trump is inaugurated in January without a hitch.
