Oh, Hillary supporters? Where is that sanctimonious ‘peaceful transition of power’ speech now?
To NOT accept a clear vote by the people is to ‘threaten’ democracy. That was the line of reasoning, was it not? At least, it WAS when they thought Hillary was a shoe-in. Now? Not so much.
Hillary’s gotten in on the bandwagon. She sat back and let an also-ran make the allegations and call for a recount. (But how did SHE raise more money for this than she did for her entire ‘Presidential Bid’?) (ClashDaily has covered that in an earlier piece.)
In that same piece, Clashdaily cited the Medium article in which Hillary’s lawyer discussed plans to get involved in the recount. They have been studying this option since the results first came in. But by their own admission, they found ‘no actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology‘.
So what is going on here? How did we go from what Hillary said in October:
Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. By doing that, he’s threatening our democracy.

to what she’s doing in late November?
If they have NO evidence of wrongdoing, and only their own paid-up media plants screaming ‘the Russians!’ periodically (and NOT the fact that HIllary and Podesta were neck-deep with the Russians when it suited them… like the 75,000 shares in a particular Russian company.)
What’s driving this?
One theory is that it is to deliberately exclude the results in three swing states that Trump carried. If their results aren’t ready in time (the recount papers were filed only 90 minutes before the deadline) they might not be used by the Electoral College. This would tip the totals slightly in favor of Hillary.
Jill Stein is asking for recounts in an effort to nullify the electoral votes of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
Federal law says that presidential recounts must be completed within 35 days after an election. Stein waited until 90 minutes before the Wisconsin deadline for filing a recount petition expired.
All the votes have to be certified by December 13 according to a report on Friday. The electors meet on December 19.
Wisconsin will almost certainly miss that deadline, since the last recount took more than a month. And that recount was for a state Supreme Court contest where only 1.5 million votes were cast.
If Wisconsin misses the December 19 deadline, the electoral votes may not be counted.
Stein is going to ask for a hand recount, which will slow the process even further.
If Wisconsin’s electoral votes are excluded on December 19, the state will then have to try and get Congress to include the votes in the January 6 count. — Gateway Pundit
Where is the money coming from?
They’re using crowdfunding. But Jim Hoft noticed a familiar face in the process:

Didn’t the old bat concede the election already? Isn’t it time to Move On? (dot org?)
