Dominion Voting Systems Files $1B Defamation Suit Against Rudy Giuliani


Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who now serves as the personal attorney for Donald Trump, is being sued for $1.3 billion for continuously spreading false information about the voting machines used in the 2020 general election. Giuliani has also made fraudulent claims that the election was “stolen” from former President Trump.

According to BuzzFeed News, Dominion Voting Systems has filed a defamation lawsuit in a Washington, DC, federal court that has accused Giuliani of manufacturing and spreading the “Big Lie” about the presidential election, which “went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election” in favor of President Joe Biden.

“By the night of the election, Giuliani had devised a plan to simply assert, without evidence, the Big Lie that the election had been stolen,” the lawsuit states. “While some lies — little lies — flare up on social media and die with the next news cycle, the Big Lie was different. The harm to Dominion’s business and reputation is unprecedented and irreparable because of how fervently millions of people believe it. Indeed, hundreds of people believed the Big Lie about Dominion with such devotion that they took the fight from social media to the United States Capitol to #StopTheSteal.”

CNN also reports that Giuliani also spread falsehoods about Dominion being owned by Venezuelan communists and thereby, corrupting the election.

“Dominion’s defamation lawsuit for $1.3B will allow me to investigate their history, finances, and practices fully and completely,” Giuliani told CNN in a statement Monday. “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.”
