Here are the damning Rudy Giuliani admissions that will help Dominion take him to the cleaners
The White House.

Dominion Voting Systems filed a massive $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani on Monday over his false claims that the company rigged the 2020 election on behalf of President Joe Biden.

One challenge for Dominion will be not only showing that Giuliani's claims about the company are false, but that they were made with malicious intent, as proving malice is an essential component of any successful defamation lawsuit.

Writing on Twitter, attorney Akiva Cohen flags a section from Dominion's lawsuit that he says will give the company real proof that Giuliani maliciously lied about them as part of an effort to justify charging hefty legal fees to the Trump campaign.

Specifically, Dominion noted that Giuliani only talked about Dominion during public appearances, but went completely silent about the company when actually arguing before courts in his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

During a court hearing about the results of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, for instance, Giuliani admitted that the Trump campaign "doesn't plead fraud" and said that "this is not a fraud case."

"Although he was unwilling to make false election fraud claims about Dominion and and its voting machines in a court of law because he knew those allegations are false, he and his allies manufactured and disseminated the 'Big Lie,' which foreseeably went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes," the company wrote in its lawsuit.
