Remember When Hillary and Co. Mocked Trump, Implying That He Wouldn’t Accept The Outcome of the Election? Well…

NY Mag-

Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump, New York has learned. The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings and is focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.

Last Thursday, the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case, according to a source briefed on the call. The academics presented findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots. Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000. While it’s important to note the group has not found proof of hacking or manipulation, they are arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an independent review — especially in light of the fact that the Obama White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee.

According to current tallies, Trump has won 290 Electoral College votes to Clinton’s 232, with Michigan’s 16 votes not apportioned because the race there is still too close to call. It would take overturning the results in both Wisconsin (10 Electoral College votes) and Pennsylvania (20 votes), in addition to winning Michigan’s 16, for Clinton to win the Electoral College. There is also the complicating factor of “faithless electors,” or members of the Electoral College who do not vote according to the popular vote in their states. At least six electoral voters have said they would not vote for Trump, despite the fact that he won their states.

The Clinton camp is running out of time to challenge the election. According to one of the activists, the deadline in Wisconsin to file for a recount is Friday; in Pennsylvania, it’s Monday; and Michigan is next Wednesday. Whether Clinton will call for a recount remains unclear. The academics so far have only a circumstantial case that would require not just a recount but a forensic audit of voting machines. Also complicating matters, a senior Clinton adviser said, is that the White House, focused on a smooth transfer of power, does not want Clinton to challenge the election result. Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri did not respond to a request for comment. But some Clinton allies are intent on pushing the issue. This afternoon, Huma Abedin’s sister Heba encouraged her Facebook followers to lobby the Justice Department to audit the 2016 vote. “Call the DOJ…and tell them you want the votes audited,” she wrote. “Even if it’s busy, keep calling.”

ht/ all too much

  1. Can she get to 270? Yeah, righT! If not…then congress toasted toast.
    Send-it-back-to-the-kitchen-Hillary.
    She must love to lose, she is so good at it!

  2. what this translates into, and Hillary KNOWS it, is the paper ballot boxes were stuffed with fraudulent ballots, dead people, imaginary people, and when her vote flipping machines didn’t grab the states like planned, now they want to fall back to the paper ballot recounts. If that is the case, how do they propose to trace the machine votes. They are grasping at straws to save the Evil Queen. Sue them for obstruction of due process.

  3. Obama told illegals to vote and they did. 3 to 5 million.
    What’s happening now is the left has been stuffing ballot boxes ever since Trump won.
    Look everyone Clinton is the winner not Trump.
    Fucking unbelievable and of course the media will push this everyday.

  4. Hypocrisy thy name is Democrats..

    I thought it was Trump and his supporters who would not accept the election results. So UNDEMOCRATIC!

  5. If she attempts this (And fails) then whatever Trump was thinking in not prosecuting her-should be swept off the table. He needs to tell his new Attorney General to throw the book at her for picky little thing the FBI can find out.

  6. Illustr8r, not only that but he needs to publicly declare it is his intention to pursue the entire Clinton Crime Syndicate, from the top down and every SOB involved!

  7. No amount of cowardice nor ineptitude would surprise me from the GOP. They might even be helping that cunt do this shit.

  8. Clinton, herself, should communicate to anyone/everyone acting on her behalf to back door her election, that this is over. But something is weird about this if indeed abedin’s sister is sending out instructions. If huma “was like a daughter”, heba must be part of the family, too.

  9. Unaccounted ballot boxes and absentee ballots are being generated as we ponder Hillary’s next step.

    Political corruption never takes a day off, especially the celebrations of Thanking God (Thanksgiving) and Praising God (Birth of Christ).

    Democrats, the Godless rabble, Mammon is their one and only deity.

  10. And let’s find all those ballot boxes on the bottom of the Chicago River from the 1960 election while we’re at it

  11. Yea, go big Hillary. Stop talking and begin assembling a transition team. Appoint your people to key positions and outline the changes you are about to make. Get a podium and put on it a sign that says “P-Resident Elected”.
    Come on baby, do the shuffle.

  12. Guarantee those effin lawyers have been insisting for years that there is no such thing as fraudulent voting. Time to clear the voting rolls and start over. Two pieces of gov. issued ID, photo, finger prints, all the usual stuff. Enforce voter fraud laws, put a couple thousand fraudsters in the slammer. Prohibit transplanted California liberals from voting in new state, for 10 years.

  13. She challenges at the last moment making the results run into next year, Dems will want to postpone the inauguration, Obama will declare martial law to keep order as rioters have been insufficient,America will divide further as planned, chaos will ensue,what will the outcome be?
