Dominion Voting Systems suggested on Monday that former President Donald Trump could face a massive lawsuit for misinformation about the 2020 election.
It was revealed this week that Dominion is seeking $1.3 billion in damages after it sued Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani for his role in spreading falshoods about the company.
"Just as Giuliani and his allies intended, the Big Lie went viral on social media as people tweeted, retweeted, and raged that Dominion had stolen their votes. While some lies -- little lies -- flare up on social media and die with the next news cycle, the Big Lie was different," attorneys for Dominion explained in the filing. "The harm to Dominion's business and reputation is unprecedented and irreparable because of how fervently millions of people believe it."
In a press call on Monday, Dominion attorney Tom Clare revealed that Trump could also be facing litigation.
"We're not ruling anybody out," he said. "We're looking at everybody."
On a call with reporters, Dominion Voting Systems lawyer Tom Clare says: "This is the 2nd lawsuit Dominion has filed to set the record straight...There will be others."
Asked if Dominion is considering a suit against Trump, Clare adds: "We're looking at everybody."
