A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump's campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania.

It's a major blow to Mr Trump's flailing efforts to overturn his November 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

Judge Brann added that he "has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens”.

Mr Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

US District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as "strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations".
