Well, Michigan said it wanted $7.9 million up front for a recount for Trump. Famously notorious for never paying his political bills, Trump's team of American Patriot Lawyers are ordered not to do it.

He probably tried to negotiate, he'd pay the $7.9 million, but only if he gets to specify the results.

Isn't the rumor that Rudy is charging His Orangeness $20k/day to be his lawyer?

But keep in mind that there's a difference between "billing" and "getting paid", especially when dealing with 45.

And on Wednesday the Trump Campaign will decide not to pay Wisconsin to do a recount.

...which kind of illustrates what this “election fraud” crap is all about - it’s the money.

In fact, since a recount would almost certainly reaffirm the results, it would be counterproductive to his aim - to keep the conspiracy theories of his loyal base of financially-supportive white-grievance-Deplorables alive.

I wouldn't be surprised if it were the other way around.

They're asking for a partial recount in Wisconsin, only select counties. Didn't that approach get thrown out by SCOTUS in Bush v Gore?

Most of the decisions made by SCOTUS during Bush v Gore were phrased to not be setting precedent. So that might not be useful. Given the current makeup of the court, they may just cite that as justification for a different decision.
