Goldsmith insisted at the time that any state court decision to halt the recount on the merits of the recount claim itself would require an additional ruling by him to proceed. On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit upheld Goldsmith’s ruling.
But in Goldsmith’s Monday ruling, he only weighed in on the timing of the recount, not the merits of the case for it. And moments after the 6th Circuit’s decision on Tuesday, a panel of judges on the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that Stein was not an “aggrieved party” with standing to call for a recount, since her fourth-place finish was too distant for a new tally to redress the effects of any alleged electoral tampering.
The Michigan Court of Appeals’ decision did not take effect immediately, however, since the 6th Circuit had upheld Goldsmith’s order that his court needed to rule on any additional cessation of the recount.
As a result, the case went back to Goldsmith on Wednesday. The federal judge, who had not previously deliberated on the merits of the case, effectively agreed with the opinion of the Michigan Court of Appeals that Stein is not an “aggrieved party.”
He also rejected Stein’s additional argument that there is a constitutional right to demand an election recount without an extremely tight margin or substantial evidence of election tampering or fraud.

OP is using "fake news" site as a source. Also, I live in Michigan, in a district that had voted blue my entire life, until this election. I live in very diverse area, and Trump yard signs outnumbered Hillary 10 to 1. I have no doubt Trump won the election here and the recount was costing us tax payer money. In addition, I believe a George Soros company owns the vote counting machines. So, how would that help the GOP?

He was talking about media biased and some dirty tricks in elections.
DNC colluded to make sure Bernie didn't win.
DNC colluded with CNN to prop up Trump so Hillary could beat him. Oh and Bernie hot as much air time as Jeb Bush. Bush didn't have a chance and at the time Bernie was about tied.
The DNC did this to themselves but I don't hear you talk about their corruption.

Ever since the end of the Reagan era, there has been nothing but corrupt administrations, fed from both parties.
Bush - Clinton - Bush - Obama
Twenty-eight (28) years of the White House being occupied by the same tyranny that [pretends to be non-connected.
We almost got another Clinton...
Is Trump part of this hedgework? Only time will tell.
