Trump supporters take to the streets of Atlanta, GA to protest the 2020 presidential election and put pressure on Georgia’s Governor Kemp; Charles Watson reports. 

President Trump said Saturday that his campaign plans to appeal a Pennsylvania judge’s decision to dismiss a lawsuit aimed at keeping the state from certifying its election results next week in favor of President-elect Joe Biden

U.S. Middle District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pa., rejected a request by the campaign for an injunction that would stop the certification of the election, as the campaign seeks to overturn results in swing states across the country, including Georgia — where the Trump campaign has requested another recount. 

Georgia certified its election results for Biden on Friday after a hand recount of the votes. 

Biden won Pennsylvania by a little more than 81,000 votes. 

“Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters,” Brann said Saturday. “This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.”

Trump claimed in a tweet Saturday night that Brann “would not even allow us to present our case or evidence.”

He also linked Brann to Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., who he said is “no friend of mine” and former President Obama, who appointed the judge.  

Earlier Saturday, Trump legal advisers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a joint statement that the dismissal helps them in their goal to bring the lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.
