Trump campaign withdraws lawsuit after Wayne County canvassers rescind votes

skynews– The Trump campaign has withdrawn its federal lawsuit in the state of Michigan after two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers signed affidavits to rescind their votes to certify the election results. The administration aimed to stop Wayne County from certifying its election results until a number of ballots were discounted. In a statement, President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the decision to withdraw was a “result of achieving the relief we sought”. “This morning we are withdrawing our lawsuit in Michigan as a direct result of achieving the relief we sought: to stop the election in Wayne County from being prematurely certified before residents can be assured that every legal vote has been counted and every illegal vote has not been counted,” he said. Two Republican canvassers in Wayne County, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, initially refused to certify the vote, placing the board in a 2-2 deadlock before reversing course. Now, the two have signed affidavits which said they believe the county vote should not be certified. The pair said they certified the result because they came under public pressure and had an assurance a full and independent audit would take place. Mr Giuliani also appeared at a media conference where he alleged voter fraud was widespread. “There’s not a singular voter fraud in one state, this pattern repeats itself in a number of states, almost exactly the same pattern,” he said. “There was a plan from a centralised place to execute these various acts of voter fraud.”
