Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election.
That’s a direct threat to our democracy.

Today, Hillary Clinton announced that she would join Jill Stein’s challenge of the Wisconsin vote count.
Beyond the post-election audit, Green Party candidate Jill Stein announced Friday that she will exercise her right as a candidate to pursue a recount in the state of Wisconsin. She has indicated plans to also seek recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides. If Jill Stein follows through as she has promised and pursues recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan, we will take the same approach in those states as well. We do so fully aware that the number of votes separating Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the closest of these states — Michigan — well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount. But regardless of the potential to change the outcome in any of the states, 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.
So much for the fear of undermining the democratic process.
Here’s the thing: If Democrats somehow find thousands of votes and manage to overturn the results in multiple states, there will be a mutiny. One has to wonder if the Democrats aren’t attempting to cause civil strife.
