Sanders not convinced recounts will bring 'profound change'

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders doesn't expect there to be "profound change" as a result of the last-minute campaign to hold recounts in three swing states.

"No one expects there to be profound change, but there's nothing wrong with going through the process," the former Democratic candidate for president said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

"The issue right now, it seems to me, at this particular moment in American history is whether Donald Trump is going to keep faith with the promises that he made to the American people," he added.

Green Party presidential contender Jill Stein has led an effort this week that has raised millions of dollars to fund the recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. On Friday, Wisconsin became the first of the battleground states to receive an official request for a recount. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign is also participating in the recount campaign.
