An election system activist operating to hide death threats has filed a defamation lawsuit against President Donald Trump’s campaign, two of his lawyers, and some conservative media figures and outlets.
Eric Comer, the security director of the Colorado-based Dominion Voting System, said he wants his life back after being named in false allegations on President-elect Joe Biden as a lead actor in the election “rigged”. There is no evidence that the election was rigged.
Their lawsuits were filed Tuesday in district court in Denver County, Colorado, the Trump campaign, lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, conservative columnist Michelle Malkin, website gateway pundit, Colorado conservative activist Joseph Oltman and conservative media Newsmax and One America News News Name Network.
“I have been thrust into the public spotlight by people with political and financial agendas but, from the heart, I am a private person,” Cooper said in a statement.
He said, “I intend to do everything I can to regain my former lifestyle.” “” And so, today, I put my faith in the legal process, which has already exposed the truth of the 2020 presidential election. “
Dominion, which provided vote-counting tools to several states, denied allegations that it switched Trump votes in favor of Biden, and no evidence has emerged to rebut those allegations.
Dominion and another voting technology company, Smartmatic, have started a fight against being named in baseless conspiracy theories. Following legal threats, Fox News Channel and Newsmax have dismissed some claims made on their networks in recent times.
There was no immediate comment from the people named in the lawsuit.
His lawyers said that Coomer had become “the face of false claims”. Komar’s name was first found publicly in Oltman’s podcast, which he claimed to have listened to the tactics of Antifa activists. When Trump’s chances of victory were revealed, Oltman said that the man, identified as “Eric From Dominion”, said “Don’t worry about the election, Trump is not going to win. I made … a certainty.” To add, “that sure.”
In an Opinion piece written for the Denver Post, Comore wrote that he had no connection with Antifa, was never on a call and the idea that some of his recordings were “completely fabricated.”
The fact-checking website Snopes said that Oltman had not cooperated in any effort to verify its claims.
Oltman also claimed that Coomer made anti-Trump remarks on Facebook. The lawsuit acknowledged that Coomer made important comments to the president on his personal Facebook page; Now he says that his page is inactive.
He interviewed Malkin and the Gateway pundit after Oltman’s allegations spread. Eric Trump tweeted about him. OANN and its White House correspondent Channel Rion reported on him. Powell said at a press conference that Coomar, who works for Smartmatic, was mistaken that Coomer’s “social media is full of hatred” for Trump, and he later reiterated his allegations in a Newsmax interview.
Giuliani, in a press conference, called Comor a vicious, vicious man. He wrote terrible things about the president … he is completely dictatorial, “according to the lawsuit.
Fox Network, another network popular with Trump supporters, is not being sued and Coomer actually uses Fox’s Tucker Carlson to suppress his case. The lawsuit calls attention to a scheduled Powell appearance on Carlson’s show, as she could not provide evidence for her allegations.
Coomer told the Associated Press earlier this month that right-wing websites posted her photo, home address and details about her family. The threat of death began almost immediately.
He said his father, an Army veteran, received a handwritten letter asking “how does it feel to be a traitor to his son.”
“It’s terrible,” Coomer said. “I have worked in international elections in post-conflict countries where electoral violence is real and people are being killed over it. And I think we are on the verge of that. “
