CEO of Dominion Voting System Has Not Denied Legal Action Against Trump

CEO John Paulo confirmed on CNN’s “New Day” that the company would take legal action against several individuals for “promoting lies and amplifying those lies … on various media platforms from Election Day.”

Asked whether Dominion feared taking legal action against Trump himself, Polos said the company “sees exactly what it has made, and repeated, and amplified the inaccurate statements that our company has made.” And are degrading and harmful to our election. “

Pressing again on whether the president would be involved, Poles replied, “We will not ignore anyone.”

CNN has reached the White House for comment.

In the aftermath of the 2020 election, the president, his lawyers and his supporters have baselessly alleged that Dominion’s voting machines were manipulated to divert votes from Trump to Biden or divert votes for Trump.
A defamation law firm representing Dominion sent letters to White House attorney Pat Cipollone and Trump campaign attorney Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday, directing them to preserve all records related to the company, warning Giuliani that legal action was “imminent” is.
Last week, CNN reported that Trump’s campaign legal team issued a memorandum to dozens of employees, stating that the company expected Dominion and Trump supporters Pro in anticipation of possible litigation against them.
During a freewheeling and fact-free Trump campaign press conference last month, Powell claimed that Dominion’s voting machines included software created under the “direction” of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez – who died in 2013 – To swing their own election results, and that company belongs to the Clinton Foundation and Democratic donor George Soros.

Polos said that on Thursday they are “complete lies” and that the company is “ready to show and prove this in court”.

On Tuesday, a top Dominion employee, Eric Coomer, separately sued conservative media outlets and personalities for presidential campaigns, Giuliani, Powell, and to a lesser extent, defamation.
Coomar, Dominion’s director of product strategy and safety, told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on Wednesday that the allegations she had made to upset the election “caused a complete upheaval in my life.”

“I am hiding because I have received several death threats and this is on an ongoing basis. My entire family, their personal information has been published online in what is referred to as docking. All my personal information released online. Have been done. People have taken pictures. ” People in my house have threatened that he will come to me and misbehave with me, he has called me a traitor. It’s not safe for me, you know, to go about my daily life, “said Coomer. He was on leave from his job due to safety concerns.

Coomer said he wants to “set the record straight and try to reclaim my reputation” and added that “people should be held accountable.”

Dominion itself is not a party to Coomer’s lawsuit, but Polos told CNN Thursday that hearing of Coomer’s situation makes him “angry” and said the allegations against Dominion affected all of his employees.

He said, “Since Election Day all our employees have been forced to remove their own public information for fear of their safety. This is really without precedent. And this is something that makes us very angry is.” .

Polos said the accusations “caused the damage to be truly unfathomable” and “caused serious doubts” among Americans about American election systems.

Georgia is one of the states that uses Dominion machines for voting, including the upcoming US Senate runoff race that will determine control of the US Senate and, with it, the future of Biden’s agenda.

Polos told CNN that Dominion’s technology has been running successful elections for years and years and that Georgia voters must rely on the system “pointing to paper ballots of machines,” which then used auditing limiting risk can go.

There is no evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump, and his administration and election officials have called it the “safest” election in American history. Biden won the popular vote by over 7 million votes and the electoral map from 306 to 232.
