If you’re Donald Trump right now, there’s a chance that your head is spinning in a slew of different directions.
In his post-presidency life, Trump has been bombarded with possibilities for his future. His speech at CPAC seems to indicate that he’s considering another run for the White House in 2024, and his recent interjections into the world of politics certainly doesn’t give us the impression that he’s retired either.
But these plans could all come crashing down as a number of investigations and lawsuits begin to emerge on the horizon.
The latest threat to Trump’s peace and quiet comes from Dominion Voting Systems, who’ve already taken aim at a number of Trump allies.
Stephen Shackelford, an attorney for the voting company, wouldn’t rule it out when asked Sunday by CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter.
“We have not ruled out any potential defendants who participated in this defamation campaign,” Shackelford said.
Dominion has a growing list of defamation lawsuits after the November election, citing claims about its technology and software that caused “irreparable damage” to the company’s name and reputation.
The company filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against Trump’s former personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, a similar suit against lawyer Sidney Powell, and a $1 billion suit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. In seeking to dismiss the lawsuit against her, Powell argued last week that “no reasonable person would conclude” that her comments about alleged election fraud “were truly statements of fact.”
Trump had repeatedly suggested that the 2020 election was “stolen” from him, either via Democrat-led balloting irregularities or via Dominion’s voting machines – the latter being a claim also parroted by the aforementioned Giuliani, Powell, and Lindell.
