Trump suffers serious legal defeat in Pennsylvania

US President Donald Trump suffered yet another legal defeat in Pennsylvania on Saturday as he lost a suit seeking a court order to discard millions of mail-in ballots in the state.

Federal district Judge Matthew Brann sitting in Williamsport described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations”.

“…This Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence.

“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state”, Brann said.

The case in which Trump’s friend Rudy Giuliani was the lead counsel, marked the latest failure of the Trump campaign to challenge the election results.

President-elect Joe Biden won the state with more than 80,000 votes.
