Pennsylvania: Judge dismisses Trump's lawsuit that sought to invalidate millions of mail-in ballots

On Saturday, Pennsylvanian Judge Matthew W. Brann dismissed a lawsuit by the Trump campaign that sought to delay the certification of Pennsylvania’s vote results, claiming widespread improprieties with mail-in ballots in the state.

Brann stated that his "court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusation" and that "this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state."

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, said in a statement he would appeal against the ruling: "Today's decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the US Supreme Court."
