That said, it is curious that Clinton would effectively go against Trump, given his seeming ideas of starting yet another investigation into her various dealings. True, he has said he wouldn't go after her, but he has a history of changing his mind on things regularly.
She must be fairly sure they won't find enough of anything to actually prosecute her.

This whole thing about a recount has taken absurdity to new heights.
Here is the reality:
Take California out of the equation, and Trump wins by a substantial margin both in the popular vote and in the EC vote.
Take the three largest metro areas in California out of the equation and Trump wins by a smaller but still a good margin both in the popular vote and in the EC vote.
Trump not only won the electoral vote by a wider margin than we have seen for three decades, he won in 85% of the U.S. land area compared to Hillary's 15%. He won 90% of U.S. counties to Hillary's 10%. Further if all the absentee ballots in California had been counted--3 million of them have not been counted as Hillary was ahead of Trump by well over 3 million votes in that state--these are estimated to most likely reduce her margin of popular vote victory to well under 1%.
So much for Jill Stein's insistence that "we want every vote to be counted." She doesn't seem to give a damn about the millions of votes in California that will never be counted.
The EC insures that a very few heavily concentrated population areas cannot be padded with enough voters on one side so that these areas have the power to control every single election.
The pathetic scam by Jill Stein, aided and abetted by Hillary Clinton, cannot possibly overturn the outcome no matter what happens. All it accomplishes is helping the ladies' pay off their campaign debts while further undermining Trump which is a huge disservice to the country.
No patriot or intellectually honest citizen should condone it
