Trump officials and supporters have filed a lawsuit in Michigan seeking to halt a recount effort spearheaded by Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Why are they so scared?
On Friday morning, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a lawsuit to stop the recount there, a move that came hours after Trump attorneys had filed a complaint to block the proceedings.
The US electoral system has been under siege for centuries. That’s right! Two centuries of electoral and voter fraud have undermined the integrity of US elections. This fraud has most likely gotten worse with the adoption of easily hacked computerized voting.
Ohio in 2004 was a notable example, but the US voting system was awash with scandal in 2000 and 2004. Donald Trump is the first Republican candidate to become president without electoral fraud in 28 years. So why is he so afraid?
Considering Trump has proclaimed millions of illegal people voted in this election, and that he wasn’t going to accept defeat if he lost the election to Hillary Clinton because of alleged rampant voter fraud, you’d think Trump would welcome a recount to see if the system really needed cleaning. You’d think President-elect Trump would want to clean up this alleged mess, rather than avoid it.
Stein filed the papers and paid the millions to proceed with recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Trump narrowly won those states, and his wins stopped Clinton in her presidential tracks.
Some of the polls in those states had Clinton winning, and some had Trump winning in the days just before the election.
You would think President-elect Trump and his supporters would be happy to ensure he won the presidency legitimately. Of course, exit polls showed a tight race in Michigan, and Clinton ahead in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. So if just a few thousand votes were made for Clinton, but changed to Trump via hacking, and the same held true for the three states being challenged, then that means Donald Trump is not the president-elect.
