With less than 60,000 voters left in the Georgia election, President Donald Trump is demanding that the counting stop as Democratic Nominee Joe Biden continues to do extremely well.
On Thursday morning, however, a federal judge in Georgia rejected the president’s lawsuits to stop counting in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia, saying that all laws were being followed on the absentee ballots.
The Trump claim was, “absentee ballots received after the deadline are stored in a manner to ensure that such ballots are not inadvertently or intentionally counted, as required under Georgia law, harms the interests of the Trump Campaign and President Trump because it could lead to the dilution of legal votes cast in support of President Trump.”
The filing didn’t provide any evidence of the claim, so the judge dismissed it.
