Trump Campaign Retreats From Key Claim in Penn. Suit

They need to let it go in PA. The results won’t change.

" Trump’s attorneys filed a revised version of the lawsuit, removing allegations that election officials violated the Trump campaign’s constitutional rights by limiting the ability of their observers to watch votes being counted.

Trump and Rudolph W. Giuliani, his personal attorney, have said repeatedly that more than 600,000 votes in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh should be invalidated because of this issue.

Trump’s pared-down lawsuit now focuses on allegations that Republicans were illegally disadvantaged because some Democratic-leaning counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots. Counties have said this affected only a small number of votes.

Cliff Levine, an attorney representing the Democratic Party in the case, said on Sunday evening that Trump’s move meant his lawsuit could not possibly change the result."

My guess is that someone in the campaign had a child in grade school who informed that a non-zero number means it is a “counting number,” as in1,2,3, etc.

I cannot believe the law firm hired for this hung in there on this sort of ridiculous argument as long as they did. They might have decided that pressing the line of contempt of court would not be a viable long term strategy, and that is why they withdrew representation.
