Uh, oh. The man whose hair leaks down his cheeks is in big trouble. Imagine that. But this time it is really bad. Dominion Voting Systems sent letters to Donald Trump’s personal attorney/fixer Rudy Giuliani and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone warning legal action is “imminent.”
The letters mandated that these two men retain all records involved with the president’s conspiracy theories regarding Dominion. The company also had another demand.
The company told Giuliani, according to CNN:
[Cease and desist] defamatory claims against Dominion [and ensure there is] no confusion about your obligation to preserve and retain all documents relating to Dominion and your smear campaign against the company.’
The attorneys’ letters explained to Cipollone that this preservation request was broad. The request also included any conversations with White House officials, Giuliani, or conspiracy theorist and attorney Sidney Powell that related to Dominion.
After Trump lost the election, his attorneys and supporters have claimed without evidence that the voting machines were fixed to manipulate votes for Trump and to shift them to President-elect Joe Biden. Another allegation was that the machines deleted votes for the president.
Dominion tried to handle the conspiracy theory with logic, but as of now, it was threatening legal action to those surrounding Donald Trump. The president did not expect to lose the 2020 election, and when he did he had trouble coming to terms with it. Those around him amplified his response that the election must have been stolen from him. Then, that became Trump’s “fact.”
The president’s administration and election officials called this the “most secure” election in US history. So, Trump fired his person in charge of the election. Biden won the 2020 presidential election by over seven million popular votes and the electoral college by 306 to POTUS’ 232.
Dominion has retained Tom Clare and Megan Meier from Clare Locke LLP, a law firm that specializes in defamation cases to bring the lawsuit.
CNN obtained a copy of the company’s letter warning Giuliani “litigation regarding these issues is imminent:”
‘With this letter you are on notice of your ongoing obligations to preserve documents related to Dominion’s claims for defamation based on allegations that the company acted improperly during the November 2020 presidential election and somehow rigged the election in favor of President-Elect Joe Biden.’
Giuliani, along with these others must follow the preservation request:
‘[In addition to] principals, agents, employees, partners, associates, paralegals, and subcontractors under your supervision, [including] Trump campaign staffers, Powell, Jenna Ellis and Lin Wood.’
The president’s personal attorney told Newsmax:
‘She is not a special counsel for the president, she does not speak for the president, nor does she speak for the administration. She speaks for herself.’
Then, on Wednesday, one of the Dominion executives filed another lawsuit charging the Trump campaign and a conservative media personality of defamation of character.
The company also wrote to Powell instructing her to retract “her wild, knowingly baseless and false accusations.” She made many outrageous claims. These included:
‘Dominion’s machines were made in Venezuela to help the country’s president, Hugo Chavez, win elections.’
That would have been quite difficult, given that Chavez died in 2013.
