ATLANTA — The Trump campaign has voluntarily withdrawn four of its lawsuits challenging the results of the presidential election in Georgia.
“Rather than presenting their evidence and witnesses to a court and to cross-examination under oath, the Trump campaign wisely decided the smartest course was to dismiss their frivolous cases,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a statement Thursday.
Raffensperger added that his office did not make any settlement agreements with the campaign and that “The President’s legal team falsely characterizes the dismissal of their lawsuits” as such.
