The Senate’s Obamacare repeal deal appears to be dead — but President Donald Trump is still crowing about it being an “impressive” achievement.

Last week, federal Judge Matthew Brann tossed out a case in which Giuliani had asked for 680,000 ballots to be invalidated in Pennsylvania. But Giuliani's team had removed legal claims about the demand from its motion to the court.
