Dominion Voting Systems' newly filed defamation lawsuit against Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani details the violent threats company employees received thanks to Giuliani's conspiratorial rants against them.
The lawsuit notes that Giuliani on Christmas Day last year devoted his personal podcast to falsely claiming that Dominion voting machines illegally switched votes from former President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden, which spurred some Trump supporters to remark that Dominion employees needed to be "executed for treason."
The threats against Dominion employees grew even more deranged, as evidenced by one message left on the company's customer service line as cited in the lawsuit.
"You're all f*cking dead," the Trump supporter said in their message. "We're bringing back the firing squad and you f*ckers are all dead, everybody involved up against the wall you motherf*ckers."
Another Trump supporter made a similar threat through Dominion's main office line.
"F*ck you, f*cking scumbags," the Trump supporter said. "We're gonna blow your f*cking building up. Piece of f*cking sh*t."
Dominion argues that these threats forced it to spend significant sums just to keep its workforce safe from Trump supporters.
"Because of these threats and numerous others, Dominion has made significant expenditures to protect its people from harm -- including by employing on-site police and security," the lawsuit states. "Since the beginning of the viral disinformation campaign, Dominion has spent more than $565,000 on private security for the protection of its people."
