Trump Attorney Sidney Powell Hit With Massive $1.3 Billion Defamation Suit For Lying About Election Fraud

One of the main attorneys involved in efforts to have the 2020 election declared invalid and Donald Trump named the winner by default has just been hit with an enormous defamation suit that could potentially leave her flat broke, the Washington Post reports:

“Dominion Voting Systems on Friday filed a defamation lawsuit against lawyer Sidney Powell, demanding more than $1.3 billion in damages for havoc it says Powell has caused by spreading ‘wild’ and ‘demonstrably false’ allegations, including that Dominion played a central role in a fantastical scheme to steal the 2020 election from President Trump.

“For weeks, Powell has claimed that Dominion was established with communist money in Venezuela to enable ballot-stuffing and other vote manipulation, and that those abilities were harnessed to rig the election for former vice president Joe Biden.”

The massive 124-page filing was made in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and in it Dominion claims that its reputation and overall value has been damaged by “viral disinformation campaign” that Powell mounted “to financially enrich herself, to raise her public profile, and to ingratiate herself to Donald Trump.”

Dominion CEO John Poulos told the Post:

“We feel that it’s important for the entire electoral process. The allegations, I know they were lobbed against us . . . but the impacts go so far beyond us.”

Another impact of Powell’s smear campaign was the human one, which directly caused harm to Dominion employees:

“As Powell’s accusations about Dominion spread after the election, the company’s employees were stalked, harassed and received death threats via email, text and phone: ‘we are already watching you,’ read a text message to one Dominion employee, according to the complaint. ‘Come clean and you will live.'”

Looks like karma may finally be catching up with Trump and his minions. They sure as hell deserve it.
