Trumps lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell have also been sued in a separate lawsuit for similar claims.
Twitter permanently banned Lindell for repeatedly sharing election misinformation.
Matt Masterson, who recently retired from the post of senior election adviser U.S., in December, welcomed Dominion’s lawsuit saying that it was a way to push back against all the deliberate falsehoods that were trumped about and which temporarily cast doubts about the election’s integrity.
He also spoke about his concern that the court system was used as a vehicle for disinformation making him glad that Dominion was responding back in a similar manner “because this is the avenue they have.”
In December, the company had sent cease and desist notices to news media with a decidedly conservative bend such as OAN and Fox News for spreading such news. They backed down on these claims.
Voter fraud claims have been rejected by almost everybody except the President, his lawyers and his die-hard supporters.
