Washington: A federal judge in the US has dismissed a lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania on behalf of the country’s President Donald Trump’s campaign seeking to declare millions of votes invalid.
The judge said the allegations are based on speculation. Judge Trump’s request for a Trump campaign on Saturday was rejected by US Middle District of Pennsylvania Judge Matthew Brann, a blow to President Trump’s efforts to challenge the results of the November 3 election. Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden is victorious in the presidential election.
Judge Bran alleged a few days ago that he was being harassed by phone calls. He said in his decision that the Trump campaign “twisted and presented legal arguments without grounds” and did not present evidence to support the allegations based on speculation. The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit earlier this month alleging irregularities in the voting process.
Biden surpasses Trump by a margin of over 81,000 votes
Newly elected President Biden defeated Trump in Pennsylvania by a margin of more than 81,000 votes. There are 20 electoral college votes in this important state. Judge Bran said in his ruling, “This court has not understood any basis under which the plaintiff has sought such a comprehensive reform in the election.”
