A federal judge rejected President Donald Trump’s latest bid to overturn the election results in Georgia during a hearing on Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Mark H. Cohen ruled from the bench to deny a motion seeking to de-certify Georgia’s election.
An email seeking comment was sent to Trump’s attorney after the hearing.
The ruling in a last-ditch lawsuit filed by Trump last week is the latest in a string of legal defeats the president has suffered in his attempt to overturn Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.
It comes a day before Congress meets to count the Electoral College votes.
