Donald Trump had been planning on suing to overturn the results long before the election took place. He had lined up a number of respected law firms to back him in the suit. But it soon became clear that he had lost by a significant margin and didn’t have much of a court case. Rather than face bad press, the prestigious law firms dropped him as a client.
So Trump was left with his elite strike force of Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and Joe DeGenova. Powell, though, was found to be too conspiracy minded to even be a part of that team and was fired. The former assistant United States Attorney spent much of her time making wild claims about voting machines. And now the maker of one of those voting machines, Dominion, has filed suit against her.
The lawsuit, which seeks $1.3 billion in damages, reads in part, “Powell falsely claimed that Dominion had rigged the election, that Dominion was created in Venezuela to rig elections for Hugo Chávez, and that Dominion bribed Georgia officials for a no-bid contract.”
Dominion had previously demanded that Powell retract her outrageous claims about the machines. This is a still developing story with more to come.
