Trump lied about the election being stolen. Trump’s sycophants lied about the election being stolen. Trump’s media lied about the election being stolen.

And now they are facing real consequences for it.

American Thinker and contributors Andrea Widburg, R.D. Wedge, Brian Tomlinson, and Peggy Ryan have published pieces on www.AmericanThinker.com that falsely accuse US Dominion Inc., Dominion Voting Systems, Inc., and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation (collectively “Dominion”) of conspiring to steal the November 2020 election from Donald Trump. These pieces rely on discredited sources who have peddled debunked theories about Dominion’s supposed ties to Venezuela, fraud on Dominion’s machines that resulted in massive vote switching or weighted votes, and other claims falsely stating that there is credible evidence that Dominion acted fraudulently.
These statements are completely false and have no basis in fact. Industry experts and public officials alike have confirmed that Dominion conducted itself appropriately and that there is simply no evidence to support these claims.
It was wrong for us to publish these false statements. We apologize to Dominion for all of the harm this caused them and their employees. We also apologize to our readers for abandoning 9 journalistic principles and misrepresenting Dominion’s track record and its limited role in tabulating votes for the November 2020 election. We regret this grave error.


Money talks. Bullshit walks.

I think Trump really believes the election was stolen.

But I do agree with this. There was never any evidence against Dominion. I agree with this.

Doesn't change the fact Democrats lied non-stop for 4 years, or the fact they engaged in open terrorism to win. But yes, this claim against Dominion was false.

Threats of a multimillion dollar lawsuit will do that.
I think the suit against Powell is for $1.3 billion. I’ll bet she needed a clean pair of panties after she read that one.
Powell and all these other individuals who spread lies about Dominion will pay dearly. They know it to.
I sure hope so.

The radicalization of 30% of our population has to end. This could be a good start.

Money talks, they were afraid of being sued. Hypocrites and liars, Trump's legacy.

Yeah, I think Trump really believes it was stolen. Self-delusion is certainly one of the many symptoms of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

What I'm not sure about -- outside of the rank & file obedient Trumpsters who will believe anything -- is whether GOP politicians and media types believe it.

Good.

Unfortunately, this won't change the minds of the flock. Only Trump can do that, and it's hard to imagine he'd ever come clean.

The Big Lie will continue.
as long as the my pillow guy is whispering in donny's ear, that lie will continue.
Have you ever notice that if Mike Lindell’s mustache were trimmed a bit, he’d look just like Adolf Hitler?
