      Even if they do recount, will that make Hillary able to win?

      She conceded already, had she not conceded, possibly, but being that she conceded, I don't see a recount even working. Also, they're having part of her campaign in the recount? No one else finds that a bit fishy and incredibly bias?

      Only if the recount ends up changing the results in all three states. Which is incredibly unlikely: they were close, but not so close that a recount would be likely to change the results. (I can see these recounts changing the result by perhaps 2,000 votes at most - but Trump still won Michigan by over 10,000 votes, Wisconsin by nearly 30,000 votes, and Pennsylvania by nearly 70,000 votes).

      And, even if that did happen, conservatives would immediately want recounts of Minnesota and New Hampshire (since Clinton only barely won those two states).

      Well, concessions aren't legally binding: Al Gore conceded in 2000 and then retracted his concession when Florida was being re-counted. There's nothing legally preventing Hillary from doing the same, if these recounts somehow turn out to change the result.

      (Of course, I don't think the recounts have any realistic chance of changing the result, and the whole thing is probably a waste of time)

      Instead of changing a cemented result, they should be getting the next person ready to win the 2020 election.
