This Friday, a Federal judge will hold a hearing and come to a decision about stopping the Wisconsin recount.
As of Wednesday, Wisconsin’s recount was more than 82 percent complete. Clinton has gained a total of 61 votes.
ABC news reported, Two pro-Trump groups, the Great America PAC and the Stop Hillary PAC, filed a federal lawsuit Dec. 1, the day the recount began, seeking to stop the process and Federal judge James Peterson will hear arguments in Madison.
Stein wants recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania too, and another federal judge in Pennsylvania will also be holding a hearing on Friday on whether that recount can begin.
Chief Justice Robert Young and Justice Joan Larsen Michigan Supreme Court members who made Trump’s list of possible U.S. Supreme Court nominees on Friday removed themselves from consideration of an appeal by Stein to restart the recount there.
This happened two days after a federal judge halted the recount in Michigan that began Monday. The federal judge tied his decision to a state court ruling that found Stein had no legal standing.
Both judge’s had to recuse themselves because of the conflict of being on Trump’s list of possible US Supreme Court justices.
Chief Justice Robert Young wrote, “I do so in order that the decision made by my colleagues in this case will not be legitimately challenged by base speculation and groundless innuendo by the partisans in this controversy and beyond.”
With 82% of the recount completed in Wisconsin, Hillary gains 61 votes & just needs 21,937 more votes to lose again.
