After receiving death threats, an employee of an election technology firm filed a defamation suit against Donald Trump’s campaign, two of the president’s lawyers and conservative individuals and the media.
Eric Kumar, director of security at Dominion Voting Systems, was forced to remain anonymous after his name was mentioned in false allegations about the conduct of the presidential election, “rigging as his main player” in favor of President-elect Joe Biden. However, there are no indications that the vote was rigged.
His appeal, filed Tuesday in Denver County District Court in Colorado, was filed by Republican campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin, Gateway Pandit’s website, Colorado Conservative activist Joseph Oltman and moderate media news outlets.
“People have focused on me with political and economic motivations, but I’m a person who cares about his privacy,” Kumar said in a statement.
“I want to do everything in my power to get my old life back, I will not be deluded in this matter,” he said.
“So today I put my faith in the judicial process that revealed the truth about the 2020 state election.”
Many U.S. The Dominion Company, which prepared the states, has denied claims that Trump reassigned pro-Joe Biden votes. No evidence has been found to support this theory.
Mr. Kumar’s lawyers argued that their client had become the “face of false accusations.”
Dominion and another electoral technology company, Smartmatic, have also retaliated, citing baseless conspiracy theories.
Faced with threats of legal action, Fox News and Newsmax have recently dropped some of the allegations made against their networks.
Defendants did not immediately respond to Mr. Coomer’s representations.
