U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”Brann added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
