Statement in Response to Donald Trump Lawyers’ Motion to Dismiss PA Recount
With his margin of victory in the state nearly halved as of last night, and now within 0.2% of triggering an automatic statewide recount, Donald Trump is desperately fighting to stop the recount in Pennsylvania. Last night, lawyers for Donald Trump filed a frivolous motion to dismiss the recount campaign’s lawsuit aimed at securing a statewide recount and forensic audit of voting machines.
David Cobb, Campaign Manager for the Jill Stein campaign recount effort, has issued the following statement in response to the Trump team’s motion:
“Donald Trump will do anything and everything to block Pennsylvania voters from knowing whether their votes counted. Why is he so worried about letting this recount move forward? We will continue to help Pennsylvania voters make sure that the election in Pennsylvania had integrity and that their votes counted.”
