Dominion Voting Systems is suing the Trump supporters for their accusations that votes were changed during the 2020 election.
Dominion is under fire since the 2020 elections after the impossible “win” by Joe Biden.
A federal judge Wednesday ordered that three defamation lawsuits of $1.3 billion each filed by Dominion Voting Systems be allowed to continue after allies of former President Donald Trump filed requests that they be dismissed.
Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s former personal attorney, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and “Kraken” attorney Sidney Powell are all named as defendants in lawsuits that will proceed, alleging that each of these parties made claims without evidence that Dominion Voting Systems had rigged the results of the 2020 presidential election by manipulating voting numbers.
United States District Court Judge Carl Nichols, who is a Trump appointee, wrote in a 44-page memorandum opinion, where he dismisses requests to block the lawsuits, that “Dominion alleges that each Defendant made defamatory statements about its role in the 2020 election,” according to court documents seen by Newsweek.
The document says “those statements are too numerous to summarize in their entirety.” But Nichols cites several examples of standout defamation allegations without backing as grounds for why the defamation suits should be allowed to continue.
“On the day of the presidential election,” Nichols wrote, “Powell appeared on One America News Network and declared that Democrats were trying to “steal the vote” from President Trump and that “they ha[d] developed a computer system to alter votes electronically.”
