Dominion Voting Systems filed a lawsuit against Fox News for defamation. The negative publicity sprayed all over the network damaged the company’s credibility, and without credibility, it has no customers. In a surprise move, Dominion subpoenaed the former Attorney General (AG) William Barr.

This subpoena occurred for actions during and after the 2020 election, according to ABC News. The voting systems corporation has been going after those individuals who thrust election fraud claims into the news.

Last March, Dominion filed its defamation lawsuit against Fox News. It was for $1.6 billion with a “B.” In the voting system corporation’s defamation lawsuit against Fox News, Dominion alleged that the network pushed false accusations that the voting company had “rigged the 2020 election in order to make a profit and boost ratings.”

According to Dominion’s lawsuit:

‘Fox sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process.’

In a statement responding to the suit last March, a Fox News official said:

‘FOX News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court.’

Barr called the conspiracy theory of a stolen election “complete nonsense [and] amongst the most disturbing:”

‘I told them it was crazy stuff and they were wasting their time on it, and they were doing a great disservice to the country. I saw absolutely zero basis for the allegations, but they were made in such a sensational way that they obviously were influencing a lot of people.’

Dominion attorneys also sent a subpoena to the previous administration’s Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency former Director Christopher Krebbs. The former director was fired for publicly saying that “there was no fraud in the election.”

The former chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission Benjamin Hovland was subpoenaed, too. And Dominion also subpoenaed “Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.”

He was the guy who the former president phoned demanding 11,780 votes, which just happened to be the exact number he needed to take back Georgia from President Joe Biden.

Sydney Powell has been sued for over “three-billion dollars,” from “various voting machine” corporations for calling the 2020 presidential election a “fraud,” according to The Independent. She also spread a bizarre kraken sea creature conspiracy theory for some reason:

‘But they’ll need to “take a number”, Ms. Powell said, as she doesn’t have the “tiniest fraction” to cover the damages being sought’

She claimed in her filing “no reasonable person” might have believed her outrageous comments were actually “statements of fact.” Of course, that did not carry much weight as an argument.Screen-Shot-2022-07-11-at-1.07.45-PM Bill Barr Slapped With Subpoena In $1.6B Defamation Suit Crime Donald Trump Featured Politics Top Stories

Dominion filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against Giuliani in January. Since then, the former New York mayor lost his license. He said:

‘[It was] another act of intimidation by the hate-filled left-wing to wipe out and censor the exercise of free speech, as well as the ability of lawyers to defend their clients vigorously.’
