Judge Rules Lawsuits Against Trump Allies May Move Forward

A Washington, D.C. federal judge rejected requests by three Trump allies seeking to have lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems dismissed. The judge ruled that the three $1.3 billion defamation suits against Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell can move forward. Dominion Voting Systems alleges that each individual deliberately defamed the company to push former President Trump’s voter fraud claims forward.

The Hill reports:

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee, swept aside the initial claims put forth by the defendants for why the suits should be tossed, from arguments that their alleged statements were legally protected opinions or were otherwise made without malicious intent to claims that the D.C. court lacked jurisdiction to hear the case.

The Wednesday order clears the way for the litigation to proceed. Separately, Dominion this week also sued a pair of far-right media companies and the former head of Overstock.com for defamation based on statements made about the 2020 election.

In a 44-page opinion, Nichols first focused on the case against Powell, whom Dominion blamed for helping incite the riot, writing in its complaint that the demonstrators were “fueled by the disinformation campaign launched and sustained by Powell in concert with her allies and like-minded media outlets.”

Dominion’s lawsuit against Giuliani alleges that the former New York City mayor continued to falsely accuse the company of fixing the 2020 presidential election by manipulating votes even after independent audits and hand recounts disproved his claims.

Giuliani filed a motion in response to Dominion’s lawsuit and argued that the company “failed to satisfy procedural requirements for such cases.” Giuliani’s motion was denied.

Dominion Voting Systems recently filed lawsuits against conservative new networks One America News Network and Newsmax.

First line of The Hill report—ruling by Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee. But the major question is who suggested him for nomination. Perhaps a RINO that Trump was looking for a favorable vote from?

I don’t want to sound alarmist or depressing.
However, we have lost our COUNTRY, our FREEDOMS and our CIVIL LIBERTIES.
Nothing anyone can do about it at this time.
Wish President Trump could be reelected and turn this ship around. However, I very much doubt it. They’re doing everything they can now to make sure that it doesn’t happen.
Who knows where we’ll be in 2022, let alone 2024. This fake pandemic and the mandate for vaxes for everyone pretty much mandatory for all, has changed the fabric of our country and all its citizens. Sounds depressing, but I believe it to be true.

We can wake up and demand that the fraudulent election be decertified. Please go to Arizona state senator Wendy Rogers Twitter page and sign to decertify the 2020 presidential election. Share on your social media so everyone else will go sign there too! Upon proof of enough fraud that the results of this election would have been changed we must demand that the 2020 presidential election be decertified and President Trump reinstated to his rightful office. If we allow fraud to stand we will lose our country and our freedom, we can see it happening. Freedom isn’t free, it must constantly be fought for.

Our only real hope of saving America is to decertify the election. Please go to Arizona state senator Wendy Rogers Twitter page and sign to decertify the 2020 presidential election and have everyone you can sign it too! Please share this on social media so that everyone will go there to sign. We must demand, upon enough proof of fraudulent votes and other types of fraud that would have changed the results of the election, that the 2020 presidential election be decertified and President Trump reinstated his rifle office. If we allow fraud to take over our country that’s exactly what is going to happen. Freedom isn’t free, it’s constantly got to be fought for.

I’m not on the other social media outlets. But will pass on to our friends.
Honestly, this election will never be decertified. There’s not enough fire in the bellies of our side to fight this.
It’s unfortunate, but true.
Have you seen the story about Mike Lindell’s cyber guy who turned on him?
This is what we’re up against.

The Democrat Crime Cartel Minion Judges are just as big a part of the Democrat’s Marxist Coup as Dominion, ANTIFA, B.L.M. and the C.C.P.. If the Republicans retake Congress in 2022, Jim Jordan should be the new Speaker and Ted Cruz should be the Senate Majority leader. Their first order of business besides reversing all the damage the Marxists have done is a new Committee on UnAmerican activity in both houses. We need to get all of the Democrat Crime Cartel Insurrectionists out of Government and our society.

The Judge who is defending the Dominion Voting criminals, should be held responsible for her/his crime. Dominion committed treason and MUST be held accountable. The evidence that was demanded by the lawyers on the Dominion System MUST be provided.

When this is all said and done, we’ll be lucky to hold on to the 2nd amendment without God knows what restrictions. It would be nice if we got going. However, look what’s happening to the people that went into the capital? They’re in jail, without representation, visitation and in solitary confinement. At the end of the day, people will be petrified and back down which is their whole intention. Sooner than later, attorneys won’t represent people with certain political affiliations. Look no further than the vax mandate. Slowly but surely, one by one, companies are making the vax mandatory if you want your job. Yes, people need to and should wake up!

We’re to the point where were being squeezed and pushed aside. Look no further than the people in jail/solitary confinement, without representation and any visitors.
When will they be released? No one knows.
Where’s the families speaking out? No where to be found. Except Ashley B husband.
The others are silent.
This is getting beyond scary.
If Dr/Senator Rand Paul can be silenced, think what can be done to us?

these criminals in government REALLY think their {security) will protect them..and, they somehow believe the military (son’s and daughters) will actually “obey” orders from corrupted “officers”, and take up arms against their relatives,AND parents..(fat chance of that). THEN ,there are the THOUSANDS of militia (far more than they realize) MANY are combat vets. I still “hope” there will be an “all out” civil war. BUT, the “pot” IS boiling and the “beltway” lunatics “apparently” swallow whatever the idiots from CNN,MSNBC, and the other commie groups tell them..I feel badly for the young people.I have had a GREAT life 83 + years of good. NEVER thought America would become a commie country.Lets all hope people wake up SOON……..

Personally I no longer have faith in our military, because they’ve been politically weaponized.
I pray they would protect us when things get rough, but honestly not sure.
I don’t come from a military background, so I’m a little behind on this subject.

I look at this as a GOOD thing, because it’s their chance to get the TRUTH on record, the media can’t manipulate it!! I’ve personally been sued for an “accident” I didn’t commit with a pedestrian. Right before we were to go into the court room, she decided to settle for 250,000. I never got to testify on my behalf. There’s mountains of evidence of fraud, this is the opportunity to get it out there in public. Dominion may have to prove it wasn’t rigged, and they can’t, because IT WAS RIGGED. This could force them to turn over the necessary passwords and whatever else they’re withholding. Their only mistake would be if they are stupid enough to settle before going to court and seeing how things are going first.

If the court case goes forward doesn’t that mean that Dominion will have to release
the documentation that either proves their equipment and operators operated above
board and beyond reproach or else admit they were as corrupt as the rest of the
Demonic Socialshits ? Be very interesting to see how it goes as more and more
evidence of corruption is coming to light daily from various parts of the Nation about
the validity of their equipment.

I hope everyone out there saw Mike Lindell’s 3-day Cyber Symposium.
This brave man has spent millions exposing voting fraud with these electronic voting machines. He was even attacked in his hotel last night because of the Truth he has brought to light of the evil that has been infiltrated into our election processes! China is in charge and big tech, news media, and a lot of politicians, corporations, professors, banks and rich ass-holes are their puppets (Gates, Zuckerburg, Soros, etc.). Before we do anything else, we need forensic audits of every county, in every state of America. Even in states where Trump won. Every state was compromised with these machines. They were developed to steal elections. This is not a Democrat or Republican problem, this is an American problem!! Get to work people and let all your representatives know that We The People expect complete transparency in OUR elections. These electronic machines can be easily manipulated by evil doers. Paper ballots may be the only way to go until we can come up with a better way to vote. (Register/vote with a finger print…?) Let’s get to work people and save our country from these communists!!

If I were attorney Rudy Giuliani, pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, I would start gathering everything possible against Dominion about their Corrupted Voting Machines used during the 2020 Presidential election !!!! Then counter sue Dominion for as much as possible for their involvement in the Fraudulent and Corrupted 2020 National Presidential Election !!!! I have heard and read there is more then enough such documented and established information available against the Dominion machines !!! I would make sure all such information connects Dominion to this awful Voter Fraud, not that they only furnished voting machines that could be Corrupted by others !!! I can only hope and Pray Dominion Ends Up Paying For Their Involvement !!!! I can only hope and Pray Our Present Judicial system and Process is Not As Corrupt As Our New Radicalized Far Left Demoncrat Socialist Party !!!!

We all know the whole Biden system is politicized, why don’t the Supreme Court play the same game? They have been saying they want to pack up the Court with liberal justices. The Supreme Court should act NOW before it’s too late!
