Attorneys representing the Michigan Republican Party and the Trump campaign are moving to block the presidential vote recount in Michigan.
An objection has been filed stating Michigan law requires a candidate to be “aggrieved” to be able to file for a recount and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who requested the recount, cannot claim to be an aggrieved candidate.
Michigan's Secretary of State issued a statement saying the Board of State Canvassers must resolve the complaint within five days and is scheduled to consider resolution of the objection tomorrow (Dec. 2). If the objection is not adopted by the board, the recount will commence on the second business day following the board's decision. If the board adopts the objection, the recount will be ended.
