Priebus: Clinton Is A Hypocrite For Wanting A Vote Recount

The Hillary Clinton campaign’s support of an election recount in Wisconsin is “hypocritical,” according to Reince Priebus.

The Republican National Committee chairman, whom Donald Trump recently named White House chief of staff, ridiculed Clinton for joining Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein in petitioning for the recount.

Stein cited reports of possible voting-machine hacking, perhaps by agents of the Russian government, in swing states like Wisconsin that Trump narrowly won. The Clinton campaign said this week in a written statement that it has an “obligation” to ensure an “accurate vote count,” The Hill reported.

Priebus argued that the recounts are “a total and complete distraction and a fraud.” He told Fox News on Sunday: “It is a total and complete hypocritical joke that the group of people that thought that they were nervous about President-elect Trump not conceding are the people that are conducting recounts in states where we won by over 68,000 votes.”

The incoming chief of staff called the recounts a waste of “time and money” that “divide this country when we need to come together and look forward to the future of rebuilding this country and getting us back on track.”

Priebus predicted that Trump will “win again for a second time,” and Clinton will “lose again for the second time,” when election officials complete the Wisconsin recount.
