My1sttoday: Trump Attorney withdraws from election challenge Lawsuit, saying Trump used him to ‘perpetrate a crime’
Philadelphia-based attorney Jerome Marcus asked the court to allow him to withdraw, citing concerns over Pennsylvania’s professional conduct standards for lawyers.
Marcus wrote that “the client has used the lawyer’s services to perpetrate a crime and the client insists upon taking action that the lawyer considers repugnant and with which the lawyer has a fundamental disagreement.”
Marcus did not immediately respond to a message seeking further comment.
The move comes a day after the pro mob Trump supporters, stormed the Capitol as lawmakers were certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win. The riot left four people dead, including one woman who was fatally shot by police.
The incident came after months of Trump’s baseless claims of a stolen election and a failed legal effort across several battleground states to overturn Biden’s victory.
