Dominion Voting Systems has filed a massive $1.3 billion lawsuit against former President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday for allegedly making false claims about the company during the contentious and highly suspect 2020 presidential election.
The lawsuit is an astounding 107 pages and was filed with the Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. It accuses Giuliani of making what they call “demonstrably false” claims on social media outlets like Twitter.
The lawsuit lays out a number of allegations that Guiliani made about the company while offering its own refutation. It also connects the former New York City mayor with a riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The lawsuit states:
During a court hearing contesting the results of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, Rudy Giuliani admitted that the Trump Campaign “doesn’t plead fraud” and that “this is not a fraud case.” Although he was unwilling to make false election fraud claims about Dominion and its voting machines in a court of law because he knew those allegations are false, he and his allies manufactured and disseminated the “Big Lie,” which foreseeably went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election. Giuliani reportedly demanded $20,000 per day for that Big Lie. But he also cashed in by hosting a podcast where he exploited election falsehoods to market gold coins, supplements, cigars, and protection from “cyberthieves.” Even after the United States Capitol had been stormed by rioters who had been deceived by Giuliani and his allies, Giuliani shirked responsibility for the consequences of his words and repeated the Big Lie again.
As a result of the defamatory falsehoods peddled by Giuliani—in concert with Sidney Powell, Russell Ramsland, L. Lin Wood, Mike Lindell, Patrick Byrne, Lou Dobbs, Fox News, Fox Business, Newsmax, One America News Network (“OAN”), The Epoch Times, and other like-minded allies and media outlets determined to promote a false preconceived narrative about the 2020 election—Dominion’s founder and employees have been harassed and have received death threats, and Dominion has suffered unprecedented and irreparable harm.
This lawsuit is definitely retaliation against Giuliani and the Trump campaign for constantly making the claim against the company that they rigged their machines to steal votes from the former president.
However, the question that needs to be asked is whether or not there is any evidence available to support Giuliani’s claims? There definitely is some questionable stuff concerning errors made with these machines.
At the least, these claims should be properly investigated, right? After all, election integrity is critically important to the survival of our republic.
All claims of voter fraud need to be taken seriously.
