Attorney Jerome Marcus, who represented the Trump campaign in a Pennsylvania post-election lawsuit, asked the federal court to let him withdraw from the case Thursday because the president had used the lawyer to “perpetrate a crime,” as Trump allies distance themselves from the president after his supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol building.

Marcus represented Trump in a case alleging Philadelphia’s board of elections was blocking Republican and Trump election observers from observing the vote counting process in the general election.

Marcus admitted during a court hearing, however, that there were a “non-zero” number of their election observers present in Philadelphia, contrary to their claims, and the campaign’s lawsuit ultimately failed.

Marcus also penned an op-ed for The Federalist claiming to have witnessed election fraud in Pennsylvania, though Law & Crime notes the piece does not actually provide any evidence of fraud.

Though the case was shut down and has not had any activity since Nov. 18, Marcus asked the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to let him withdraw from the case.

Marcus said he was withdrawing because “the client has used the lawyer’s services to perpetrate a crime and…insists on taking action that the lawyer considers repugnant and with which the lawyer has a fundamental disagreement.”
