Dominion Voting Systems, which supplied voting equipment for the past presidential and congressional elections in many states of the country, fulfilled its threat to sue President Trump’s supporters who accused it of facilitating election rigging in so-called “wavering” states.
In its lawsuit, the company accuses Sydney Powell, one of Trump’s former lawyers, of discrediting, through “repeated repetition,” completely unfounded allegations that their cars were “fraudulently reprogrammed” to transfer the votes cast for Trump to his rival Joe Biden. This “disinformation campaign” has seriously damaged the company’s reputation, according to the lawsuit, which seeks $ 1.3 billion in compensation from Powell. The result was harassment and threats to company employees, and the company had to spend $ 565,000 to protect them.
The chief executive officer of the company, John Pulos, said that they were not interested in concluding a pre-trial agreement with the defendant. “We consider the upcoming court hearings to be very important for building confidence in the entire electoral process,” he stressed. “The accusations were directed at us, but their impact is much broader.” Pulos did not rule out the possibility of suing Trump himself.
