November 17th, US media said that of the 4 lawyers involved in the Trump campaign against the Pennsylvania election litigation, 3 lawyers withdrew from the case the day before the hearing.
According to Business Insider.com, lawyers Linda Cohens, John Scott and Douglas Bryan Hughes stated in a document submitted to the court on the evening of the 15th that they “will withdraw to appear as plaintiff’s lawyers.” Mark Scarlingi will serve as the plaintiff’s lawyer.
Pennsylvania is the state with the most electoral votes among several key states, and one of the states where the Trump team and the Republican Party have initiated the most lawsuits.
In the federal lawsuit against Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (Kathy Boockvar), the Trump campaign initially claimed that violations were widespread in the state’s vote counting process. They believe that 14,000 Pennsylvania ballots should be abolished and that the election process is essentially unconstitutional.
The lawsuit alleges that different counties handle ballots in different ways, and a large number of mailed ballots are illegally counted. A few days later, the Trump campaign submitted a revised lawsuit, withdrawing multiple allegations.
Bukova’s office issued a statement stating that these lawsuits were filed “based on multiple rejected legal theories and without evidence.”
According to reports, Biden won Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin in the general election. The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania and Michigan and demanded that Wisconsin recount the votes.
As of the 16th local time, Biden’s lead in Pennsylvania was close to 70,000 votes, and any lawsuits by the Trump campaign are unlikely to reverse Trump’s defeat in the state.
