Trump Campaign Knew ‘Election Fraud Claims’ Were Untrue, Internal Memo Shows
Former President Donald Trump and his campaign team knew that their election fraud claims were untrue and that Dominion Voting System had no involvement with alleged “fraud.”
According to the internal memo obtained by the New York Times Tuesday, the Trump campaign was discussing ways to develop fraud claims about Dominion Voting System, a software company that administered the vote count of the 2020 presidential election. The conversation had started as early as mid-November, meaning that they knew about the truth days before Trump’s loyal attornies like Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell announced the legal challenge against the Dominion Voting System and states which certified their results.
The internal memo from the Trump campaign rebutted three main conspiracy theories that were made by its lawyers: the Dominion allegedly using Smartmatic’s technology, its alleged connection with the Venezuela government or the financier George Soros, and its alleged connections to “ANTIFA” activists.
“The memo produced by the Trump campaign shows that, at least internally, the Trump Campaign found there was no evidence to support the conspiracy theories regarding Dominion and Dr. Coomer,” lawyers for the former executive of Dominion Voting System, Dr. Eric Coomer, wrote in the filing.
Dominion Voting System is currently suing multiples of people and groups in connection with the defamation of their company.
In January, the software company sued Powell and Giuliani for $1.3 billion in the defamation lawsuit.
Giuliani was suspended from practicing law in June and found guilty of spreading “demonstrably false and misleading” lies about the election and the Dominion Voting System.
