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.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
