There was an article from the Washington Post that improperly claimed the Trump campaign dropped their claim that nearly 700,000 ballots were cast illegally in Pennsylvania. The Trump campaign actually adjusted the suit to rely on claim of violations of the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Here is a summary of the modification:
Paragraph 4 of the amended filing reads: “Allegheny and Philadelphia Counties alone received and processed 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots without review by the political parties and candidates. These are unprecedented numbers in Pennsylvania’s elections history. Rather than engaging in an open and transparent process to give credibility to Pennsylvania’s brand-new voting system, the processes were hidden during the receipt, review, opening, and tabulation of those 682,479 votes.” See also paragraphs 132-150.Amended Filling Of Civil Action Suit Against State Of Pennsylvania, Paragraph 4
You can review the entire lawsuit filing here. The Trump campaign is still explicitly claiming that these ballots were counted illegally in secreted. There are countless affidavits from eyewitnesses showing outright hostility or blocking ballot watchers during the counts of highly contested elections during the 2020 race.
