The staff now focused on accusations that some democratic-supporting constituencies allowed Americans to correct errors in mail-in ballots.
The incumbent President of the United States’ campaign headquarters, Donald Trump, who is running for a second term, continues to fight for more than 680 thousand votes in Pennsylvania’s elections. The Press Secretary of the Trump campaign, Tim Murtaugh, wrote about this on Twitter on Monday.
“Our lawsuit in Pennsylvania still has the issue of 682,479 postal and absentee ballots that were counted in secret,” the publication says.
On Sunday, the electronic database of the Federal court of the state published a statement of claim of the Trump campaign headquarters, as amended. The document now omits accusations that election Commission employees violated the American leader’s campaign’s constitutional rights by restricting the ability of Republicans to observe the vote count. The White House host’s lawyer, Rudolph Giuliani, has repeatedly said that more than 600,000 votes cast in the state’s largest cities, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, should be invalidated. The head of state argued that the victory in Pennsylvania should be awarded to him because of this.
This story is completely erroneous. Our lawsuit in Pennsylvania absolutely still makes an issue of the 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots that were counted in secret.
To write that we had scrapped that argument requires not reading the amended complaint. https://t.co/39CvzAoIyl

Trump’s staff has now focused on accusations that Republicans were unlawfully at a disadvantage because some democratic-supporting constituencies allowed Americans to correct errors in mail-in ballots. State authorities previously reported that this affected only a small number of votes. Cliff Levin, a lawyer representing the Democrats, told reporters that these demands already “have absolutely no impact on the overall vote count or Joe Biden’s victory over Donald Trump.” Nevertheless, the Democrats again demanded that the court reject this claim.
