FWIW, I was quoted a few weeks ago like so:

     "Dechert thinks things will go relatively well with
     the current level of scrutiny. 'We hope that we
     don't get into a disputed election decided by the
     Supreme Court,' he says. 'But we hope we would
     still find enough problems so that the whole thing
     isn't swept under the carpet.'"

See:

I don't think it's in our interest to try to overturn the result. However,
it *is* in our interest to point out whatever problems that did occur.
