Lawyers at two law firms representing President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in their lawsuits challenging election results in several states have balked at their company's involvement, The New York Times said citing unidentified sources.

The claim is based on interviews the Times said it conducted with nine partners and associates at Cleveland-based Jones Day, the fifth largest law firm in the United States and 13th in the world, and Columbus, Ohio-based Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, which has offices in Ohio, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.

The Times said some senior lawyers at Jones Day felt the firm's work would "undermine the integrity of American elections," while one attorney at Porter has quit in protest, the Times reported without identifying him or her.

The two firms already have filed at least four lawsuits challenging the results in Pennsylvania, including one Monday in federal district court naming as defendants Pennsylvania's Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and the boards of elections in seven counties. It claimed more than one-third of the state's 6.75 million votes ignored or violated Pennsylvania law.

Jones Day, the paper noted, has been involved with at least 20 lawsuits on behalf of Trump and the Republican Party, and several of its partners have served in the Trump administration, including Donald F. McGahn II, who served as the president's White House counsel before returning to the firm.
