President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Thursday the campaign it was withdrawing its lawsuit disputing vote results in Michigan that favored Democrat Joe Biden because it succeeded in halting certification of election results in Detroit and surrounding Wayne County.

"This morning we are withdrawing our lawsuit in Michigan as a direct result of achieving the relief we sought: to stop the election in Wayne County from being prematurely certified before residents can be assured that every legal vote has been counted and every illegal vote has not been counted," Giuliani said in a statement.

The Trump campaign’s notice of voluntary dismissal was filed Thursday in federal court, with attached affidavits from Wayne County GOP election board members, William Hartmann and Monica Palmer, who claimed they had been pressured to certify the results and had been misled into believing an independent audit of the Detroit vote would take place.
