The campaign of President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit in Georgia state court seeking to invalidate the presidential election results there.

It's the latest in a series of legal challenges intended to reverse his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.

In a statement, the Trump administration said that the lawsuit would include sworn statements from Georgia residents alleging fraud.

The US president's legal team has filed a slew of lawsuits across the United States in a flailing bid to turn his defeat in the election into a victory.

Almost all of them have been rejected by the courts.

Earlier this week, US Attorney General Bill Barr said the Justice Department had found no evidence of voter fraud significant enough to reverse Democrat Joe Biden's defeat of President Trump in the 3 November election.

In response, Mr Trump's lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, said they would "continue our pursuit of the truth through the judicial system and state legislatures".
