Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell Subpoenaed by Dominion Voting Systems

This is not the day in court that Rudy was looking for.

Rudy Giuliani has long been looking for a day in court to discuss his feelings about the way in which the 2020 election shook out, but this isn’t likely what he had in mind.

In his former role as personal attorney for Donald Trump, the former NYC Mayor was summarily shut out of just about every court room that he looked to find an audience in, with his claims that the 2020 election was “rigged” against his client.  Judge after judge refused to budge, and Rudy struck out.

Now, as Dominion Voting Systems continues with their legal action against those who they say defamed the company during the fiasco, Rudy, along with a number of other electoral doubters, are being asked to turn over a number of documents.

They now have to hand over documents related to their involvement with the news network, Bloomberg first reported on Thursday.

Dominion had sued the three for $1.3 billion each over their roles in spreading the debunked conspiracy theory that its voting machines “flipped” votes from President Donald Trump to Joe Biden during the 2020 election.

Dominion’s query was wide in its scope.

The subpoena asked Giuliani, a former New York mayor who served as Trump’s personal lawyer, to hand over all documents related to his appearances on Fox since 2016 and all communications with the network related to both the 2020 presidential election and Dominion, Bloomberg reported.

The subpoena also asked for Giuliani to provide documents about the nature of his relationship with the network, “whether formal or informal, compensated or uncompensated,” the report said.

Dominion sent similar subpoenas to Lindell and Powell, a pro-Trump attorney. They have until July 25 to comply, Bloomberg reported, citing the filing.

It has been a tough week for Giuliani, who just days ago had his license to practice law suspended in New York State over his claims regarding the 2020 election.

Fleeing Texas Democrat Now Facing Arrest Warrant

Play stupid games win stupid prizes.

Published

Instead of accepting defeat in the state legislature, the Democrats of the Texas statehouse decided that they’d simply whisk themselves away to Washington DC to prevent a vote on an election integrity bill to occur. This was the second time they had pulled a stunt like this in less than a year, and Texas Governor Greg Abbott has now said that these lawmakers will be arrested upon their reentry to Texas, and taken to the legislature to make certain that the vote occurs. Now it seems as though members of the Texas GOP are making good on Abbott’s promise. Speaker of the House Dade Phelan (R-Beaumont) signed a civil arrest warrant on Monday for State Representative Philip Cortez (D-San Antonio) for his failure to return to the House of Representatives, the Texas Tribune reported. Cortez abandoned his fellow Democrats late last week when he unexpectedly returned to Texas. Cortez claimed he returned to Austin to attempt to engage in a “good faith dialogue” on the matter of House Bill 3, the election law reform bill. After receiving harsh criticism from fellow Democrats for returning to Austin without consulting them, Cortez returned to Washington, D.C. The San Antonio Democrat currently serves as chairman of the House Urban Affairs Committee. Speaker Phelan issued a statement saying, in part, that Cortez had “irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of the chamber.” The speaker added that Cortez “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas.” The bill in question has been criticized by Texas Democrats as unfairly prohibitive to communities of color, while the GOP says that the law would simply strengthen the security of the election itself, in an effort to prevent fraud from occurring.

Liz Cheney Takes Aim at Trump During Opening Statement at Jan 6 Hearing

She’s still claiming this is “nonpartisan”, however.

The Republican Party has made it very clear that they are not interested in any sort of re-trial of Donald Trump in regard to the events of January 6th, and that any attempt to steer an investigation his direction would be considered bit of partisan tomfoolery on behalf of those who engage in such speculation. Therein lies the problem for the Nancy Pelosi-led special committee on January 6th, in that they can’t afford to be considered a partisan affair, but they are almost certainly itching for a chance to attack the former Commander in Chief. Liz Cheney, one of the few Republicans involved in the current probe, wasted no time in going there on Tuesday, however. “The American people deserve the full and open testimony of every person with knowledge of the planning and preparation for January 6th,” Cheney said in her opening statement. The Wyoming Republican has gone on record for criticizing her GOP colleagues for supporting the former president — whom many say incited his supporters to attack the Capitol — and undermining an investigation into the events of Jan. 6. She was voted out of her role as chair of the House Republican Conference in May as a result. And then… “We must also know what happened every minute of that day in the White House – every phone call, every conversation, every meeting leading up to, during, and after the attack. Honorable men and women have an obligation to step forward,” Cheney said. Tuesday’s hearing featured the testimony of a number of police officers who were involved in attempting to stop the insurrection that occurred that day, and set the tone for a heated and lengthy probe to come.
