Fiery Pirro on Clinton Joining Recount: You Said We Should Accept Election Results
Saturday evening on Justice, Judge Jeanine Pirro criticized Hillary Clinton for choosing to participate in Dr. Jill Stein's presidential election vote recount effort.
Clinton's campaign attorney, Marc Elias, said last week that the campaign would join Stein's effort in Wisconsin-- the first of three targeted states for which the candidate has secured a recount application.
"Even though she couldn't come out Election Night and concede, the next day, [Clinton] said 'we have to accept the results and look to the future'," Pirro said.
"OK, Hillary, now that Donald Trump is looking to help you heal and to help heal the nation, would it be fair to say 'it's time to give Donald Trump his chance to lead'," she said, quoting Clinton's statement at the time.
Pirro recounted how Clinton called "horrifying" a statement by Trump during a debate in which he expressed uncertainty as to whether he would not challenge the election's initial outcome.

Breaking tonight Hillary Clinton's campaign announces it will join Green party candidate Jill Stein's presidential vote recount in three pivotal states - even though Hillary Clinton has already conceded the election.
This almost three weeks after the presidential election was called for Donald Trump.
This after democrats were horrified when then candidate Donald Trump - in his last debate with Clinton- wouldn't commit to accepting the election results, saying he would look at it at the time, and keep us all in suspense. And Hillary's response to that? Take a listen:
She then doubled down on her outrage causing some to actually protest.
Even though she couldn't come out election night and concede, the next day she said we have to accept the results and look to the future. Donald trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.
Ok Hillary, now that Donald Trump is looking to help you heal and help heal the nation, would it be fair to say - to use your own words-- it's time to give Donald Trump his chance to lead?
