TrumpWorld is having a terrible week, and it’s only Monday.
Aside from the announcements that Steve Bannon’s trial will go ahead as scheduled, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has to testify in Fulton County, and Tuesday’s January 6th Select Committee hearing will officially connect Donald Trump to the violent Capitol riot, former Attorney General William Barr has been issued a subpoena as part of an ongoing 2020 election defamation lawsuit against Fox News brought by voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems.
Dominion recently issued an additional string of subpoenas to various state officials, including Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who Trump famously called after the 2020 election asking to help him “find” the exact number of votes he needed to win the state of Georgia. Dominion has also filed lawsuits against those it says helped pushed false accusations that it helped rig the 2020 election, including Trump’s former attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.

In its $1.6 billion defamation suit filed against Fox News last March, Dominion alleges that the network pushed false accusations that the voting company had rigged the 2020 election in order to make a profit and boost ratings. “Fox sold a false story of election fraud in order to serve its own commercial purposes, severely injuring Dominion in the process,” Dominion said in its complaint.
Bill Barr’s subpoena by Dominion may cost Fox $1 Billion.

Barr has been widely criticized since his resignation from the Trump administration for holding back key information that he later used in his book. He also complied with the January 6th House Select Committee, and his filmed testimony revealed the actions he could have taken to warn the American public exactly how close we came to a full-on Constitutional crisis. “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,” Barr said of the Dominion conspiracy theories, which were consistently pushed by Trump and his allies. “I saw absolutely zero bases for the allegations, but they were made in such a sensational way that they obviously were influencing a lot of people.”
NEW: Bill Barr has been subpoenaed in Dominion’s defamation lawsuit against Fox News. Dominion wants to use Barr’s J6 testimony — where he called Trump’s voter fraud claims “bs” — to prove that there was no voter fraud. They are suing Fox News for $1.6 Billion. Let’s go Dominion!

One former member of TrumpWorld who knows more about Barr’s true interactions with Trump is Michael Cohen, who spoke to our friends at Meidas Touch, telling them “Barr is no hero” just because he told the truth. We knew this already, Mikey the C, but the insider angle is still always appreciated.
