Sen. Bernie Sanders threw a big bucket of cold water on all the Democrats anxiously awaiting the results of recount election recounts that have been ordered in three close battleground states.
It’s not going to change a thing, according to the former Democratic presidential candidate.

Although he defended the action taken by Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein, he said he didn’t expect any “profound change” in the election results.
“No one expects there to be profound change, but there’s nothing wrong with going through the process,” the independent Vermont senator said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
The effort was initiated Thursday by Stein with a massive funding campaign to finance recounts in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Clinton campaign personnel subsequently joined the effort, which hit a major snag in the Keystone State, when it was discovered there is no absolute right to a recount.
“I don’t think that Hillary Clinton — who got 2 million more voters than Mr. Trump in the popular election — thinks that it’s going to transform the election, but do people have a legal right to do it? Yeah, we do,” Sanders told CNN host Dana Bash.
