CEO John Poulos confirmed on CNN’s “New Day” that the company would be taking legal action against several individuals “promoting lies and amplifying those lies…on various media platforms since Election Day.”
Asked if Dominion anticipates taking legal action against Trump himself, Poulos said the company will “be looking into absolutely everybody that has made, and repeated, and amplified false statements that have been defamatory and damaging to our company and to our election.”
Pressed again on whether that would include the President, Poulos replied, “We will not be overlooking anybody.”
CNN has reached out to the White House for comment.
Poulos said Thursday those are”complete lies” and that the company looks “forward to showing and proving that in court.”
“I am in hiding because I have received many death threats and it’s on a continuing basis. My entire family, their private information has been published online in what’s referred to as doxing. All my private information has been released online. People have taken photos of my house, people have threaten to come by and lynch me, decapitate me, they’ve referred to me as a traitor. It is not safe for me to, you know, go about my daily life,” said Coomer, who added that he’s been on leave from his job due to the security concerns.
Coomer said he wants to “set the record straight and try to reclaim my reputation” and that “people need to be held accountable.”
Dominion itself is not a party to Coomer’s lawsuit, but Poulos told CNN Thursday that hearing of Coomer’s situation makes him “angry” and said the accusations against Dominion have affected all of its employees.
“All of our employees have been forced to remove as much public information of themselves as they can, for fear of their own safety since Election Day. It’s truly without precedent. And it’s something that causes us a great deal of anger,” he said.
Poulos said that the “damage has really been immeasurable” from the allegations and has been “causing serious doubts” among Americans about the US election systems.
Poulos told CNN that Dominion’s technology has been running successful elections for years and years and that Georgia voters “should trust the system,” pointing to the machines’ paper ballots that can then be used in a risk limiting audit.
There is no evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump, and his administration and election officials have called it the “most secure” election in US history. Biden won the popular vote by more than 7 million votes and the electoral map 306 to 232.
