The president of the United States of America Mr Donald J. Trump and his team of legal advisors suffered a major setback as the lawsuit instituted against the opposition party nominee and President-elect Mr. Joe Biden was thrown out for a lack of merit.
Mr. Donald Trump who was the standard bearer for the republican party in the past Nov. 3rd historic elections was challenging the claimed irregularities in the polls and have been backed by many of his supporters to ensure he gets to the root of the matter.
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.
This, he claimed created room for local governments controlled by the opposition Democratic Party to accept fraudulent and “technically deficient ballots”.
Giuliani also said he gathered “300 affidavits, declarations that showed there were enough fraudulent ballots to invalidate the results.
However, 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 berated Trump’s lawyers for filing a “disjointed lawsuit,” adding that he would not “disenfranchise almost seven million voters” on baseless allegations
