An American federal court has rejected Trump’s attempt to invalidate the results of election that took place in Pennsylvania after his legal team, led by former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, approached the Middle District Court of Pennsylvania, alleging that 1.5 million mail-in votes in the state were illegally counted.
Giuliani alleged that the president’s observers were not allowed to watch the counting of mail-in ballots.
This created room for local governments controlled by the opposition Democratic Party to accept fraudulent and “technically deficient ballots”, Giuliani said.
He also said he gathered 300 affidavits, declarations that showed there were enough fraudulent ballots to invalidate the results.
The presiding judge, Matthew Brann, in his ruling threw out the case “for lack of compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption”.
Brann condemned Trump’s lawyers for filing a “disjointed lawsuit,” saying he would not “disenfranchise almost seven million voters” on baseless allegations.
The judge said
One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption. That has not happened.
President-elect, Joe Biden was declared winner in Pennsylvania with 3,458,312 votes against Trump’s 3,376,499 votes.
