President Donald Trump’s campaign turned on Tuesday to a defense lawyer for former national security adviser Michael Flynn as it asked the Nevada Supreme Court to cease the counting of some mail-in ballots in Clark County, a request the state’s high court rejected as Trump and Joseph Biden found themselves locked in a tight race for the White House that is expected to give rise to further new litigation over the next several days.

The Trump campaign’s legal team in Nevada included Jesse Binnall, a partner at Harvey & Binnall in Alexandria, Virginia, who entered an appearance for Flynn last year as the president’s one-time national security adviser dropped his initial defense team at Covington & Burling and pivoted toward his eventual bid to withdraw his admission that he lied to the FBI.
