President Donald Trump’s campaign has withdrawn a central part of his case in an attempt to seal the election results certificate in Pennsylvania, where Democrat Joe Biden helped Trump seize the state and win the White House.
Prior to Tuesday’s hearing in the case, Trump’s campaign on Sunday denied allegations that 2,7799 mail-in delegates and absentee ballots were processed illegally without their representatives seeing.
The campaign’s thin-down lawsuit, filed in federal court on Sunday, aims to prevent Pennsylvania from proving a victory for Biden in the state, and claims that Democratic voters were treated more favorably than Republican voters.
The Associated Press called the presidential race on behalf of former Vice President Joe Biden in November after deciding not to allow Trump to hold the remaining ballot counts in Pennsylvania. Trump has refused to acknowledge.
The rest of the claim was about disqualifying the polling station from disqualifying those voters who were given the opportunity to fix the mail-in ballot to be disqualified for any technical reason.
The lawsuit alleges that the “democratic-heavy county” violated the law by identifying mail-in ballots before election day – such as not having an internal “privacy envelope” or lacking voter signatures on the outside envelope – so voters could fix it and count their votes. Make sure to be moved, known as “healing”
Republican-heavy counties “follow the law and do not provide notice and healing process by depriving many,” the lawsuit said.
Cliff Levine, a lawyer representing the Democratic National Committee seeking to intervene, said it was not yet clear how many voters were given the opportunity to fix their ballots. However, he said, the number was minimal and certainly less than the margin – about 70,000 – which separates Biden and Trump. “The numbers aren’t too close to the gap between the two candidates, not even close,” Levine said.
In any case, there is no provision in state law to prevent the county from helping voters fix a ballot that has a technical deficiency. Levine said someone in the lawsuit complained that someone voted illegally.
“They really should have sued the counties that didn’t allow it [voters] Corrected, “Levine said.” The goal is to ensure the count of each vote. “
Pennsylvania’s top election official, a Democrat, Secretary of State Kathy Bookover, responded to the court Sunday, asking the judge to dismiss the case. The state court has full jurisdiction over the matter, and state prosecutors have written that there is “no strong claim to the relief of any legal theory” in the case.
More than 2.6 million mail-in ballots have been reported from counties, and state or county election officials or prosecutors have not reported any fraud or inaccuracies.
A key theme of Trump and his supporters was their claim that Philadelphia – a Democratic base where Trump has been badly defeated – did not allow Trump campaign representatives to process mail-in and missing ballots and view tablets.
However, Republican lawyers have admitted in separate federal court proceedings that they were attesting to mail-in ballot processing observers in Philadelphia. Governor Tom Wolf’s administration said ballot observers on all sides were observers throughout the process and “otherwise any persuasion is a lie.”
