A federal court in the United States on Saturday evening dismissed President Donald Trump’s suit that sought to cancel millions of mail-in votes in the November 3 election in Pennsylvania.

This is yet another major blow to efforts by Trump to have the presidential election results invalidated in battleground states where he lost.

His legal team, led by former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, had approached the Middle District Court of Pennsylvania alleging that 1.5 million mail-in votes in the state were illegally counted.

Giuliani had alleged that the president’s poll watchers were not allowed to observe the counting of mail-in ballots.

But in his ruling, the presiding judge, Matthew Brann, threw out the case for lack of compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption.

Brann berated the Trump’s lawyers for filing what he described as a “disjointed lawsuit”, adding that he would not disenfranchise almost seven million voters on baseless allegations.

He dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning the Trump team cannot resubmit it.
