On this week’s edition of ‘Fox News Sunday,’ RNC Chairman and incoming White House chief-of-staff Reince Priebus says that the effort from Jill Stein’s campaign to recount votes in Michigan and Wisconsin is a waste of time, money and effort.
“It is a total and complete distractions and a fraud,” he said. “Look, they will waste our time. We will staff up with thousands of people, we will sit there and look through ScanTron ballots, we will win again for the second time, and they will lose again for the second time. But our country doesn’t need it.”
“It was their team that cut a deal with our team that said when the AP called the race, they would call within 15 minutes and concede– and they did. It is a total and complete hypocritical joke that the group of people that thought they were nervous about President-elect Trump not conceding are the people that are conducting recounts in states where we won by 68,000 votes.”
