Voting machine company files $1.3 billion defamation suit against Trump lawyer

Dominion Voting Systems sued President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, for spreading malicious and unfounded lies about the company. She claimed the company was founded with Venezuelan communist money to rig elections and that they stuffed the ballot box to boost President-elect Joe Biden. Powell’s lawyer said the lawsuit was intended to censor speech and keep the truth closeted. Dominion wants the case to go to trial to reveal the truth about the electoral process.

The queen of conspiracy theories, Powell filed four federal lawsuits to overturn the election results. All failed. Dominion’s lawsuit provides 124 pages of details of how Powell lied about the company in the face of evidence from authorities and courts that show her claims baseless.
