Obama Admin. Statement: ‘We Stand Behind Our Election Results’
Amid a looming presidential election recount in Wisconsin – and one potentially being petitioned for in Pennsylvania on Monday and Michigan on Wednesday – the Obama administration issued a statement Friday night defending the results.
“The Kremlin probably expected that publicity surrounding the disclosures that followed the Russian government-directed compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations, would raise questions about the integrity of the election process that could have undermined the legitimacy of the president-elect,” the statement read, per The Times.
“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.”
The deadline to finalize recounts and certify the election results in all states is Dec. 13. Green Party candidate Jill Stein has already funded and petitioned for a Wisconsin recount the state announced will begin late next week. A recount in Pennsylvania has been funded by Stein’s efforts, too, which she plans to challenge in before a Monday deadline, according to The Times.
The Obama administration statement added it was “confident in the overall integrity of electoral infrastructure, a confidence that was borne out…. As a result, we believe our elections were free and fair from a cybersecurity perspective.”
Well, if they do a recount, they most likely will have to toss out all of the illegals and dead people votes…..Demonrats wouldn’t like to exposed like that.
