Speaking on the Axios Re:Cap podcast, attorney for Dominion Voting Systems, Tom Clare, said that the company has not ruled out suing Donald Trump — as well as other media outlets — in the wake of its $1.6 billion lawsuit against Fox News for spreading debunked voter fraud conspiracy theories.
Clare said Dominion is “following the evidence where it goes,” and it would be a “reasonable assumption” that more charges could come.
“We’re gonna have a chance to really peek behind the curtain of understanding the people’s roles, and that would include the president and the White House and the campaign,” Clare said. “And if the evidence leads us to believe that we’ve got strong claims, that’s something we’re gonna take a look at.”
While gathering evidence may take “years,” Clare said he doesn’t think “we’re going to wait that long to make some of these determinations.”
“But once we feel like we got enough evidence, whether it’s the president or other individuals, we’re going to proceed expeditiously,” he said.
Clare said Dominion is “looking at other media outlets” after suing Fox News, “and making sure we can meet all of the elements of defamation.”
“There were other outlets that played a similar role to Fox in spreading these lies. I expect that we’re going to be holding them accountable as well,” he said.
Dominion has filed four defamation lawsuits including the one against Fox News on Friday. The other suits were filed against pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, with all three requesting $1.3 billion in damages.
