I am not sure.
I thought the MI AG was going to ask the MI Supremes for an emergency hearing.
I don't know which court the Trump folks filed in.

The decision came two days before a court hearing was scheduled in the case. Saturday’s court filing to withdraw the case said the Green Party-backed voters who filed the case “are regular citizens of ordinary means” and cannot afford the $1 million bond ordered by the court by 5 p.m. Monday.

“The judge’s outrageous demand that voters pay such an exorbitant figure is a shameful, unacceptable barrier to democratic participation,” Stein said in a statement. "No voter in America should be forced to pay thousands of dollars to know if her or his vote was counted."

But, it's okay to screw MI residents for millions to pay for a recount she demanded???????????

Looks like stein has withdrawn the court case in Pennsylvania...
She says she is going to make a major announcement about further plans on Monday and is going to do so outside Trump tower... Not sure what that is all about.???


Simple even her own party is turning against her. So she's got a lot of smoothing over to do. And she's giving a major black eye to the green party as now they are seen as just part if he democratic party. Somehow she has to straighten that out will see.

The women is a piece of crap that will have nothing to lose now that she sold her soul to Hillary, she will never be president and her reputation means nothing, but hell if you have money you don't need a darn reputation.

Stein has dropped the state law suit in PA because she is going to the federal courts to file a case on Monday.

I hear that 22000 Hillary votes were also 'found' in PA yesterday and Trumps lead is now down from 70k votes to 48k votes. Apparently there are more votes to come in a highly populated Democrat county. 16000 more votes for Clinton are required to push the threshold of the win to less than 0.5℅ which would trigger an automatic recount. very strange how they could still be counting and finding votes at this stage.

If they put the additional cost on Stein she will have no trouble raising the money. The question is: if Trump is so confident he won, why is he trying to stop the recount. Even if the three states could not finish in time to submit their official count, he would still carry the Electoral College. Is he afraid that the real voter fraud will be discovered?

The Republican judges tended to lose rack of things.

Has more to do with keeping the integrity of the elections than any fraud methinks.

Because the recounts were triggered at the last minute and threaten the ability of the electoral college to do their job on the 19th December. Have you read their complaint? Seems not.

He said that he would wait to see if there was any evidence of fraud before he would accept the election.
There is no evidence - even Jill Stein admits that.

15% of the way through the Wisconsin recount:
Trump +5 votes
Clinton +3 votes

Net of +2 votes to Trump.

Even if the three states in question are unable to vote in the College, Trump would still win.

No one would win as no one would be at 270 electoral college votes.

Pretty sure it would go to the one with 260 votes in that case.

And, should that worse case scenario happen...all the voters in those three states would be disenfranchised....a political abomination.
A tragedy for the republic.

The people involved with Hillary do not care at all about the states in question voters, they don't give a crap about the Republic and as we already know by the corruption that is in human shape call Hillary all she wants is to disrupt the electoral system.

She will never be president and she will never be any else but a corrupted piece of sad human being along with her proxy.

The woman is so full of it that she can not get it.

Voter integrity my big latino butt.

The hearing is still going on..on a break ATM....and it appears a recount may be stalled until Wednesday, as the judge is skeptical about an immediate start tomorrow.
Seems the Stein group wants to not allow for appeals to the Saturday decision by the MI Board of Canvassers.

www.freep.com...

U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith asked Stein attorney Mark Brewer to explain what the harm is in waiting until Wednesday, as planned, especially after Brewer conceded that the recount could still likely be completed by Dec. 13 if started Wednesday, though it would take more money and resources.


Now, if MI could speak for the citizens of the counties who must bear the brunt of these ridiculous recounts.

Is this the judge's response from today?
(that link did not work)
It's the link on this page: www.jill2016.com...
labeled "Michigan Order Denying Delay of Recount"

I'm not sure, because it has 12/02/2016, but it seems like the subject, and it does have the name of the judge hearing the case today.
