HATE MONGERS: Trump fans viciously harass Dominion Voting Systems CEO and his family

Death threats, frivolous lawsuits, and office lockdowns. That’s how John Poulos, CEO of Dominion Voting Systems, described to Anderson Cooper in the latest episode of 60 Minutes how his office, his employees, and even his family have all been made unsafe by the lies perpetuated by Donald Trump, his lawyers, and his allies.

“Yeah, good afternoon, scumbags,” one man can be heard saying in a recorded message Poulos played for Cooper, “We’re going to blow your fucking building up. Piece of fucking shit.”

Another had a woman’s voice, warning, “Every single person at Dominion’s going to end up in an orange jump suit in handcuffs, you fucking whores! You cheating fucking pigs!”

Poulos said he can’t even allow his children to pick up packages left by the door. Just recently, one of his offices had to go on lockdown. And an employee called him crying after a threat she received that was so heinous he could not describe it on television.

The company has fended off some sixty lawsuits from Trumpers and is now suing Fox “News” for $1.6 billion because of the lies it spread about Dominion, beginning with Trump lawyer Sidney Powell’s appearance on Maria Bartiromo’s program just days after the election. Bartiromo had introduced Powell by first stating that there had been “voting irregularities,” after which Powell stated that Dominion was “where the fraud took place, where they were flipping votes in the computer system or adding votes that did not exist.”

Even after Dominion sent Fox producers ample evidence that no such fraud had taken place, the network continued to have on Powell and Rudy Giuliani, who claimed Dominion was owned by a Venezuelan company that had been loyal to Hugo Chavez. It’s not.

Trump himself made similar claims, stating not long after Powell’s first appearance that, “We have a company that’s very suspect. Its name is Dominion. With a turn of a dial or the change of a chip, you could press a button for Trump and the vote goes to Biden. What kind of a system is this. We have to go to paper. Maybe it takes longer, but the only secure system is paper.”

This has been a frequent Trump refrain. He made it again at his recent rally in Robstown. But, as the Dominion CEO explained, there are paper ballots. Dominion machines simply count the ballots, and there is always a paper trail. The company has no power to add or detract votes and its machines are not connected to the internet. In short, everything that Trump and his lackies have claimed is false, including, as Mary McCarthy might say, the words “and” and “the.”

Dominion was founded, in fact, for the dual purpose of making the process of recounting easier and to make it easier for disabled people to vote.

In total, Dominion now has eight lawsuits totaling over $10 billion, including the one against Fox. Chris Krebs, who oversaw the 2020 Election as the head of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the DHS, reiterated during the segment that it was “the most secure election in history.” Even Trump’s own attorney general, Bill Barr, has testified that there is “zero basis for the allegations” made by Trump.

What are the odds, then, do you say, that Trump and others in the Trump Party will stop leveling these false allegations, would you say? Ok. Stupid question. But can they at least stop terrorizing Poulos, his employees, and his family?

Donald Trump Jr., professional slimeball, likely hates Ross’s guts. That’s why you should follow Ross on Twitter! @RossRosenfeld
