Say what you like about politicans, you cant insult a US corporation

A senior employee of Dominion Voting Systems has sued President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign in a Colorado court for spreading false conspiracy theories related to November’s presidential election.

Eric Coomer, director of product strategy and security for the voting technology company, sued Trump's campaign and senior associates, including attorney Sidney Powell and the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, for defamation, according court documents.

The defendants, including pro-Trump news outlets One America News Network and Newsmax Media, made baseless assertions that Coomer “sits at the center of a national conspiracy to fraudulently elect the President of the United States”.

The lawsuit claims that Trump’s campaign and its agents “manufactured and spread a false narrative” that Dominion “conspired to rig its equipment and the election in favor of President-Elect Biden”, which led to “devastating consequences”, including death threats which forced Coomer to leave his home for fear of his safety.

“Defendants, by their actions, elevated Dr. Coomer into the national spotlight, invaded his privacy, threatened his security, and fundamentally defamed his reputation across this country”, the document said.

For those who came in late, Trump had a few problems accepting that he lost the election and continues to make baseless claims of widespread voter fraud and has routinely lost court cases that he and his supporters have filed around the country to try to overturn the election results.
