Upon losing the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, Donald Trump went on a campaign that questioned the validity of the votes, even going as far as saying the election was rigged in various states. Many of Trump’s supporters called out the voting systems, with Rudy Giuliani being at the forefront. Now, Dominion Voting Systems has hit Giuliani with a $1.3 billion lawsuit for pushing “demonstrably false” allegations.
The allegations pushed by Giuliani resulted in death threats for employees, according to the suit. Dominion Voting Systems is the company behind the voting software and hardware used to count votes in the 2020 presidential election.
Since then, Giuliani has issued a response to the suit, saying “It will allow me to investigate their history, finances, and practices fully and completely,” he states, as per Collins. “The amount being asked for is, quite obviously, intended to frighten people of faint heart. It is 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. As such, we will investigate a countersuit against them for violating these Constitutional rights.” Stay tuned for more updates.
