Clinton Says Yea to Recount, Trump Says Nay

Clinton Says Yea to Recount, Trump Says Nay

WASHINGTON - The campaign of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Saturday it will participate in the vote recount in Wisconsin, while President-elect Donald Trump dismissed the effort as "scam."
"We feel it is important, on principle, to ensure our campaign is legally represented in any court proceedings and represented on the ground in order to monitor the recount process itself," Clinton's campaign attorney Mark Elias wrote on an online statement.
The statement said since the election the campaign has received "hundreds of messages" that urged action against the result, and that the campaign has previously conducted various measures to evaluate the fairness of the vote count.
The steps included having lawyers, data scientists and analysts combing over the election result to spot anomalies, meeting with outside experts to hear their concerns and review their findings, and monitoring and staffing the post-election canvasses.
Elias concluded that after the above mentioned procedures, his team had found no "actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology."
In light of the findings, Clinton's campaign initially decided against filing for recount, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, it will join in, the statement said. (Xinhua)
