1. Clinton campaign to participate in Wisconsin recount

Hillary Clinton's campaign will participate in the Green Party-instigated presidential recount in Wisconsin, campaign counsel Marc Elias said Saturday. "Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise [the recount] 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," Elias wrote in a statement at Medium. "If [Green Party candidate] 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." Were the recounts to flip all three states to Clinton — an unlikely prospect — she could unseat President-elect Donald Trump.
