President Trump and his legal team have repeatedly alleged that the 2020 election was “stolen” from the incumbent Republican, via a number of possible methods.
The most widely-spread theory thus far has to do with voter fraud, with the President and his lawyers insisting that illegal ballot “dumps” that occurred in the dead of night were fraudulent and aimed at behooving Joe Biden. To this day, attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis have been unable to find a court willing to hear their argument, however.
And then there are the claims that voting machines owned and operated by Dominion were either compromised or purposefully “rigged” in favor of the Democratic challenger.
The company is now threatening legal action against those who continue to promote this theory.
CEO John Poulos appeared on CNN this week to explain.
“[S]everal different actors have been promoting lies and amplifying those lies, as I said, on various media platforms, since Election Day. And many Americans across the country have been listening to this, repeatedly, and it’s causing serious doubts with their election systems, which in our opinion, is the exact intent of these actors,” Poulos told CNN “New Day” host John Berman. “And they have refused to testify under oath and to bring these matters in front of a court. In fact, to my knowledge, I am the only one that has testified under oath on any of these matters. So, it’s just forced our hand. So, we fully expect that none of them will be retracting their statements, so it forces our hand to file action.”
“[W]e will be looking into absolutely everybody that has … made and repeated and amplified false statements that have been defamatory and damaging to our company and to our election,” he added.
“Including, perhaps, the president?” Berman asked.
Poulos replied, “Like I said, we will not be overlooking anybody.”
Barring any unprecedented developments, Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated on January 20th.
