A federal judge on Saturday dismissed the Trump campaign’s lawsuit in Pennsylvania seeking to invalidate millions of votes, issuing a scathing opinion saying that the state can move forward with certifying its election results.

U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann ruled that the campaign presented “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations” that were “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. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more,” the judge wrote.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro (D) celebrated the ruling on Twitter.

“These claims were meritless from the start and for an audience of one. The will of the people will prevail. These baseless lawsuits need to end,” he tweeted.

Saturday’s ruling is a major blow to the Trump campaign’s efforts to overturn election results, with President-elect Joe Biden leading Trump by more than 81,000 votes in Pennsylvania.
