If you have been wondering why the Stein/Clinton much delayed demand for a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania is happening now, Richard Baehr on American Thinker in his piece The Democrats’ real strategy in launching recounts seems to have the answer.
The recounts, if done by hand, which can be demanded, may take longer than the last day for completing the official counts in a state and directing Electoral College voters. If all 3 states miss the deadline, Trump is at 260, Hillary at 232. No one hits 270.
Then this goes to Congress, where the House voting 1 vote per state elects Trump, and Senate selects Pence.
If this goes to the US House and Senate, and the result is the same as result from the Electoral College without the recounts, why do it? The answer is to make Trump seem even more illegitimate, that he did not win the popular vote (he lost by over 2.1 million), he did not win the Electoral College (did not reach 270), and was elected by being inserted into the presidency by members of his own party in Congress.

And then, of course the media will come in with a crescendo of coverage decrying Trump as an illegitimate President that will make what they did to GW Bush for eight years seems as a summer’s breeze to a tornado. And the goal of that barrage of anti-Trump coverage would be to, at “best”, force Trump from office, or so poison his Presidency that he would be largely unable to accomplish anything on his agenda, and “hopefully” make him a one term utterly ineffective President. I hope they fail.
