  1. It’s about time Dominion filed suit! Talk about pass the buck: “Brian Peterson, a spokesman for Newsmax, said the company’s 2020 election coverage was based on allegations made by the president, his advisers and members of Congress.” Gimme a break!

    I am anxious to see how the defamation suits against Fox News and Trump allies Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Mike Lindell turns out.
