Lawsuits seeking to challenge Biden's electoral wins in 4 states were reportedly withdrawn

  • Lawsuits seeking to challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral wins in four states were withdrawn as President Donald Trump refuses to concede, CNN reported Monday.
  • The suits were filed in federal courts by voters in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, claiming voter fraud with no evidence.
  • The news of the dropped lawsuits comes after three out of four lawyers representing the Trump campaign in its biggest election fraud lawsuit in Pennsylvania withdrew from the case, one day before the hearing for the lawsuit.
  • Each of the lawsuits, initially filed last week, claimed that evidence of voter fraud would be “shortly forthcoming when the relevant official documents are final and available,” according to the CNN report.
  • No evidence has emerged proving widespread voter fraud, even as the president himself continues to make the same allegations.
  • Trump’s refusal to concede in the 2020 election to Biden has hindered the transition to a Biden-Harris administration, as the Democratic team continues to operate without resources provided by the White House.
  • The four lawsuits were backed by the law firm of James Bopp Jr., a known conservative attorney. Representatives from the law firm did not immediately return Business Insider’s request for comment.
  • Bopp told CNN in a statement denying to reveal why the lawsuits were pulled “because of [attorney-client] privilege and because I do not telegraph my next moves, I cannot comment.”
  • Kristen Clarke, executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, a voting rights advocacy group that opposed the election lawsuits, told CNN that withdrawing the suits shows that Trump supporters have “no clear and coordinated strategy” in contesting the election results.
  • “These suits are part of a last-ditch attempt intended to promote chaos and discord while eroding public confidence in the outcome of our elections,” Clarke told CNN.
