Washington D.C. Federal Judge Carl Nichols rejected attempts from Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Mike Lindell to dismiss the defamation suits against them from Dominion Voting Systems. Nichols ruled Wednesday that the lawsuits will proceed.
Dominion filed $1.3 billion suits to all three for falsely claiming that the company committed election fraud in 2020. Powell tried to make the argument that her comments weren’t statement of fact but opinion. Therefore, they should be protected by the first amendment.
“The question … is whether a reasonable juror could conclude that Powell’s statements expressed or implied a verifiably false fact about Dominion. This is not a close call,” Nichols wrote in his opinion piece following the decision. “It is simply not the law that provably false statements cannot be actionable if made in the context of an election.”
Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani continued to accuse election workers of malpractice as recently as Wednesday. He tweeted out the link to an article about Dominion ballot machines rejecting ballots. But, he didn’t mention Dominion by name in his tweet. “Georgia ballots rejected by machines were later altered by election workers to count,” Giuliani tweeted.
According to Dominion’s website, voting machines and other election equipment used by more than 40% of U.S. voters are provided by the company.

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’
Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.
The Democrats' election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington "gaffe"—accidentally telling the truth. https://t.co/Pn1rdcgHll

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”
New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
