Dominion Voting Systems has not ruled out the possibility of suing former president Trump in a defamation case. The voting company recently raised a massive $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News. Tom Clare, a lawyer for Dominion says the company could likely file additional charges as more documents are uncovered.
The Hill reports:
Attorney Tom Clare told the “Axios Re:Cap” podcast that Dominion is “following the evidence where it goes,” noting it would be a “reasonable assumption” that more charges could come once discovery begins and the team has access to more documents.
“We’re gonna have a chance to really peek behind the curtain of understanding the people’s roles, and that would include the president and the White House and the campaign,” Clare said. “And if the evidence leads us to believe that we’ve got strong claims, that’s something we’re gonna take a look at.”
Dominion’s lawyer noted that discovery will last “several years” but said he doesn’t think “we’re going to wait that long to make some of these determinations.”
“But once we feel like we got enough evidence, whether it’s the president or other individuals, we’re going to proceed expeditiously,” he said.
Dominion Voting Systems has already filed lawsuits against pro-Trump businessman Mike Lindell, Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as well as pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell. Clare also says Dominion hasn’t ruled out suing other media companies that reported on claims of voter fraud.
