Giuliani Facing $1.3 Billion Lawsuit From Dominion
From being the New York Mayor to Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani is now facing a whopping $1.3 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems because of his Big Lie Campaign, where he claims that there was widespread fraud during the presidential election.
What Is a Big Lie Campaign?
During the election, Donald Trump and his allies attempted to overturn the 2020 US presidential election by claiming that there was election fraud. President-elect Joe Biden called their effort a Big Lie, along with many others.
But what is a Big Lie?
It’s a propaganda strategy used for political reasons, or a gross misrepresentation of the facts, especially when used by a person in government or an official body.
Adolf Hitler created the expression “Big Lie” when he dictated his 1925 book, Mein Kampf, about using a lie so big that no one would ever believe that someone would even dare to change the truth.
What Else To Know About The Lawsuit
Dominion Voting Systems Inc. is based in Denver, Colorado, and asides from Giuliani, also sued Trump supporter and lawyer Sidney Powell.
They were accused by Dominion of spreading fake conspiracy theories about the election.
Eric Coomer, a senior Dominion employee, filed a separate defamation lawsuit against Trump’s campaign, as he was driven to hiding after being threatened by Trump supporters.
Giuliani lashed back, saying the lawsuits were used to intimidate others from exercising their rights to free speech.
He also added that he may file a countersuit against Dominion as they violated his rights.
Further allegations point to Giuliani along with his allies to let people know of the big lie, as it went viral and misled millions of people into believing the company fixed the election and stole millions of votes.
Dominion wanted to set the record straight, which was why they sued. They also wanted to protect the company, its employees, and the election.
It has even spent $65,000 on security to watch over its employees as they have also been facing harassment and death threats.
