For Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the Senate, the first few days of Joe Biden’s presidency has not been about fighting the new Democratic majority in government, it’s been about gaming out how much power he now has.
McConnell, the leader of Senate Republicans for over a decade, now finds himself in the position every caucus leader dreads: out of power in the chamber, in charge of a somewhat unruly bunch of politicians, and under pressure over how to handle the impeachment of the last Republican president.
Dominion Voting Systems have today filed a defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
The 107-page filing with the Federal District Court in Washington seeks damages of more than $1.3 billion. It bases the claim on more than 50 statements made by Giuliani at legislative hearings, on his podcast, on his Twitter account and in the media.
Powell’s wild accusations are demonstrably false. Far from being created in Venezuela to rig elections for a now-deceased Venezuelan dictator, Dominion was founded in Toronto for the purpose of creating a fully auditable paper-based vote system that would empower people with disabilities to vote independently on verifiable paper ballots.
