Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos on Thursday discussed his threat of “imminent” legal action against the Donald Trump campaign for statements made about their company following the 2020 elections. BRING IT ON!
Appearing on CNN’s New Day, John Poulos was asked about a recent letter a defamation law firm representing the company sent to White House counsel Pat Cipollone and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. The letter told them to preserve all records related to the company and warned that legal action is “imminent,” according to CNN.
Poulos said the lawsuit against “several different people that have been spreading lies and defamatory remarks” about his company since Election Day is in his legal team’s hands now. He said that entails Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell and possibly even the president himself.
“We will be looking into absolutely everybody that has… made and repeated and amplified false statements that have been defamatory and damaging to our company and to our election.”

“We did send a letter to several different people that have been spreading lies and defamatory remarks about our company since Election Day on various media platforms,” Poulos said. “We did use the word imminent. We’ve handed it over to our legal team, and it’s completely in their hands, so they will be filing when they’re ready.”
Asked what he was accusing them of, Poulos reiterated his comments and said that many of Trump’s allies have been “promoting lies and amplifying those lies.” He noted that he believes the lies increased doubt in the country’s election systems among Americans.
