"big lie"

The majority of Americans willing and able to review information from an array of sources have determined Trump and his Republican's pushed and continue to push big lies about the election.

A minority, perhaps 35% of the US population (US 'fundamentalists'), those who believe Qanon, Fox network's ultraright entertainers like Hannity, Tucker, global media like RT and social media posts written by paid employees of China, Turkey, Russia and its partner Iran continue to believe the big lie. Among those are individuals who believe it's shape shifting alien reptiles pulling strings behind the curtain.

Trump and his allies spent two months denying his election defeat, and claiming without evidence that it was the result of widespread voter fraud, before his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan 6.

DOJ ordered to investigate whether or not anyone tried to use them to prosecute vote fraud

I read that Dominion was looking at Trumx (I can't even type out the name without wanting to gag) himself as the next, uh, almost person they're going to sue.

I think this is great and it's about time people starting suing. Truth matters and this is precisely why libel, slander and defemation.

Giuliani made money off his podcast after his accusations about Dominion by pandering cigars and supplements to ward off Covid to the mentally stunted confederate flag waving yahoos who fell for the Great MAGA Con of 2020.

Sue him, relieve him of his money.

It's amazing how little the right and their supporters actually know about free speech.

It's amazing how little the right and their supporters actually know about free speech.

And almost everything else outside of conspiracy theories.

Better call Don! (for a loan or two)

A group of prominent attorneys last week asked New York’s judiciary to suspend Giuliani's law license because he made false claims in post-election lawsuits and for urging Trump’s supporters to engage in “trial by combat” shortly before they stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

I would love to see Rudy defend himself, so hold off on the suspension a bit.

Anyhow no one in their right minds would hire Rudy as their lawyer!!!

The criminal actions of Giulani and the source of all the problems, whathisname the insurrection instigator, should be sued and held responsible for attacking our democracy.

Dominion is doing a good thing, and we will see many lawsuits upcoming. These traitors need to be prosecuted.

Huh. Turns out, you can’t just tell lies about someone over and over to your massive following until they become so incoherently rabid that they start harassing that someone.

Did these morons not learn anything from watching the Sandy Hook parents pull Alex Jones inside-out through his own behind in court?

I’m being rhetorical, of course. If they were capable of learning, they wouldn’t be Trump supporters.

Crazy Rudy is getting it from all sides...

He's been under DOJ investigation for some time for campaign finance violations and illegally representing a foreign government...and who knows what Parnas and Furman will dime him out on...

Administratively he's being investigated and possibly disbarred...

Now he's getting multiple suits in civil court for his slander and lies...

Just like everyone else, he sure has benefitted with his association with Trump...

Maybe he can ask Sasha Baron Cohen if he can get a gig in the next Borat movie...

I hope that clown goes to prison.

Thrown under the bus by Trump and not pardoned and Trump refused to pay. His $20,000 per day fee. Going down.

Ghouliani will be sweating so much, his whole face will be covered in that black juice.

Giuliani said in a statement that Dominion's lawsuit was intended to intimidate others from exercising their free speech rights.

Intended to intimidate liars. It is a shame what they did to the company and people who work there.

Fox has already been running full hour spots recanting the lies spread about Dominion.

Not out of the goodness of their heart mind you, Fox is trying to keep from losing their shirt in a lawsuit.

This train is going to get more steam. Should be fun to watch the cockroaches running before getting squashed.

Giuliani must be sweating buckets now. Time to bulk buy the hair dye.

If that allows finally an investigation of Dominion activities, it is a good thing.

The how come no evidence has ever been presented in court about this so-called fraud?

How come the Trump legal team is 0-67 in winning a case - even in front of Trump appointed judges?

Why did AG Barr say there was no evidence of systemic fraud?

What happened to the Kraken?

Conservatives sure do love pointless investigations and conspiracy theories.

Do you people ever listen to yourselves?
