The votes are counted, the electoral college delegates apportioned, and President Elect Trump is travelling the world promoting bad haircuts. It should be all over, American voters thought it was all over, but it isn't yet. The US Presidential election 2016 is now the subject of numerous court battles and lawsuits.
US Green Party candidate Jill Stein said her campaign will appeal to a federal court on Monday to seek a state-wide vote recount in Pennsylvania, hours after dropping a lawsuit in a local court, saying the cost of the lawsuit was too high. Stein's bid, in collaboration with Hillary Clinton's campaign team (The Clinton Crime Syndicate) to overturn the result of the presidential pool, won by Donald Trump has run into legal obstacles in all three states where Stein has requested recounts.
“Make no mistake – the Stein campaign will continue to fight for a state-wide recount in Pennsylvania. We are committed to this fight to protect the civil and voting rights of all Americans,” Jonathan Abady, the lead counsel for Jill Stein’s recount bid, said in a statement on Sunday.
“The barriers to verifying the vote in Pennsylvania are so pervasive and that the state court system is so ill-equipped to address this problem, we must seek federal court intervention,” the statement added.
As a result, Stein is expected to file a new lawsuit with a federal court to demand a state-wide recount “on constitutional grounds,” Abady added.
In an earlier statement the Stein campaign announced that the Pennsylvania lawsuit was dropped after the Commonwealth Court demanded a $1 million bond from the 100 state residents who had brought the suit backed by the Greens.
"Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1 million bond required by the court," attorney Lawrence Otter’s letter to the state court said, according to Reuters. Perhaps the bond requirement is to prevent frivolous or malicious requests such as Stein's from wasting public money.
"The judge’s outrageous demand that voters pay such an exorbitant figure is a shameful, unacceptable barrier to democratic participation," Stein herself said, stressing "no voter in America should be forced to pay thousands of dollars to know if her or his vote was counted." Stein has not actually presented any evidence to provide grounds for suspicion that significant numbers of votes were not counted.
Stein also launched recount initiatives in Wisconsin and Michigan after a renowned computer expert alleged that the election results could have been hacked, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Trump camp, in turn, pointed to Stein’s failure to provide any evidence indicating that the state’s electronic voting machines had malfunctioned.
“There is no evidence – or even an allegation – that any tampering with Pennsylvania’s voting systems actually occurred,” a complaint by Trump’s lawyers read. The recount efforts may dash the hopes of some Democrats, who believe finding irregularities or missing votes in all three states may be enough to reverse the presidential election results that saw Republican candidate Donald Trump prevail over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
It is widely suspected that the tactics being used by the Clinton campaign and the Soros Foundation are not aimed at overturning the result but intend to deprive Trump of the electoral college vote on December 19 because recounts in the three states will not be complete. If this tactic were to succeed, the likely outcome would be a complete collapse of law and order in the USA.
Democrats Russia Hacked Us and Failed Recount Campaign is Political Suicide.
The US Democratic Party’s inability to accept that they lost the Presidency to Donald Trump is turning into a slow polictical sucicide. The party that has always been quick to scream ‘conspiracy theorist’ to discredit critics of its dealings with oversreas governments and foreign billionaires like Soros has revealed in its efforts to overturn the result by claimING that Russian hacking influenced voters in favour of Trump.
