Blitzer said he’s “still having trouble understanding” why Democrats are agreeing with the recount, insisting they “would have been adamantly opposed to it if Donald Trump had lost the election.”
Coons said Stein is operating “within the boundaries of the law.”
“That’s following the law, that’s following our electoral process,” Coons added. “That’s not undermining confidence in the entire election across the country by spreading false rumors as president-elect Trump is.”
Blitzer agreed that there wasn’t any evidence to back up Trump’s charge, but pushed back that Democrats would have been “adamently opposed to it, if Donald Trump had lost the election, Hillary Clinton had won, and he was doing what she is doing right now.”
Coons responded that Democrats were afraid Trump would just simply refuse to accept the results, instead of using legal avenues to challenge them.
