‘You’d Have to Ask Them’: Stein Says She Doesn’t Know When Clinton Got Involved in Recount

imageedit_253_8913223203Today on ABC’s The View, Green Party candidate Jill Stein gave a very candid interview about her recount efforts. She answered the panelists as they took turns grilling her on whether Hillary Clinton was somehow involved in the decision to call for the recount or perhaps would have won if Stein hadn’t run and siphoned away some voters.

She insisted that even if Clinton had won over Donald Trump, she would have pursued a recount if the margin was small enough.

Sunny Hostin asked specifically when the Clinton campaign became involved. The question was likely a response to other news personalities, who have wondered whether or not the Clinton team was behind the recount this whole time.

“Y0u’d have to ask them,” she said.

She went on to say that concerns over what she plans to do with the millions of dollars she raised for the recount are silly because the money is going into an account that can only be used for that purpose.

Watch above to see that, plus find out whether Stein — who pulled around the same number of votes that separated Clinton from Trump in key states — believes Clinton would have won had the Green Party dropped out this time around.
