William Barr Subpoenaed in Dominion Defamation Suit Against Fox News

Former Attorney General William Barr has been issued a subpoena in the defamation case between Dominion Voting Systems and Fox News.

The Hill reports:

filing made in Delaware Superior Court and dated July 8 indicated Barr had been sent a subpoena as Dominion works to prove Fox knowingly aired false information about the company following the 2020 election.

Last March, Dominion filed a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News, alleging the network intentionally aired defamatory claims against the voting company to spread claims that widespread voter fraud impacted the 2020 election.

Barr previously broke with Trump over his claims that voter fraud impacted the 2020 election, testifying that the Justice Department had not found evidence to corroborate Trump’s claims.

“My opinion then and my opinion now is that the election was not stolen by fraud,” Barr said during taped testimony played during a recent committee hearing, adding nothing he’d seen since then had changed his opinion.

In a recent filing, Dominion’s legal team argued Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch “decided to promote former President Trump’s narrative after Trump’s condemnation of Fox damaged its stock and viewership.”

Delaware Superior Court Judge Eric M. Davis last month denied a motion from Fox Corp. to dismiss the the suit, writing that the voting systems company “adequately states a claim for defamation per se against Fox Corporation based on its theory of direct liability.”

Fox has moved to dismiss the case on First Amendment grounds.

Joe biden and his China first policy is failing across both parties. Not wanted in 2024 and will be cause for his impeachment after the midterms, just hope the biden monies they collected for” what ever they promised to do for it” is returned to those Un American adversaries where it should have stayed all along, we do not need the joe and hunter’s America last policy in our Country. Can biden and harris be impeached at the same time?

Why haven’t we had a REAL INVESTIGATION into the 2020 Election Fraud claims to actually prove what the results are, as that seems to be the best way of getting to the TRUTH and should be REQUIRED TO CLEAR UP THIS DISPUTE.

There may not be any way to prove it but that does not make
it not true. If they could have investigated immediately before
they had a chance to delete or destroy what was done maybe
it could have been proven. But Barr’s opinion is no better than
mine and 75 million others. The election was corrupt. There
should be paper ballots so things can be proved. Barr should have
not made statements when it was just his opinion. He thinks too
highly of himself and his opinion.

Perhaps Barr should watch the documentary 2000 Mules and reconsider his position regarding voter and election fraud. I’m confident that Dominion did their part, but how would Barr know one way or the other? One thing is for sure regardless of what Trump says. They flat out stole the 2020 election. They may decide not to know it, but some of the people know it, and a whole lot more are going to know it, before this November. Censorship or no censorship they won’t be able to put it back in the bag.

Funny. How does anyone prove Dominion isn’t easily hacked and algorithms written for each election? One company’s word against another’s.
