Skip to comments.Fox hosts didn’t believe 2020 election fraud claims
Posted on 02/16/2023 10:09:23 PM PST by Olog-hai
Hosts at Fox News had serious concerns about allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election being made by guests who were allies of former President Donald Trump, according to court filings in a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against the network.
“Sidney Powell is lying,” about having evidence for election fraud, Tucker Carlson told a producer about the attorney on Nov. 16, 2020, according to an excerpt from an exhibit that remains under seal.
The internal communication was included in a redacted summary judgment brief filed Thursday by attorneys for Dominion Voting Systems.
Carlson also referred to Powell in a text as an “unguided missile,” and “dangerous as hell.” Fellow host Laura Ingraham, meanwhile, told Carlson that Powell is “a complete nut. No one will work with her. Ditto with Rudy,” referring to former New York mayor and Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani.
Sean Hannity, meanwhile, said in a deposition “that whole narrative that Sidney was pushing, I did not believe it for one second,” according to Dominion’s filing. […]
Fox’s counterclaim is based on New York’s “anti-SLAAP” law. Such laws are aimed at protecting people trying to exercise their First Amendment rights from being intimidated by “strategic lawsuits against public participation,” or SLAPPs. …

It sounds more like that they didn’t believe Sidney Powell, not that they didn’t believe there were problems with the 2020 election.
They enjoy Biden in he White Hut. The more outrageous he is, the more they get to scream loudly and affect indignant poses.
It’s all bullcrap.
And I remember Tucker a week before the election saying he would no longer discuss Hunter Biden and his struggles because Hunter was his friend. It’s all Kibuki theater.
They are entertainers and news readers. Their opinions mean squat.
Whether the individual Fox Hosts believed in the Voter Fraud or not, I’m guessing if those hosts were interested in keeping their jobs as is, they were expected to agree with the corporate point of view. Murdoch and Sons would have wanted the names and recent performance reviews of ‘ungrateful and troublesome’ hosts for further
deliberations. That’s how humongous industry-clusters often work. Ask someone from Facebook or Twitter what happens when you buck the system. Sean knows what side his bread is buttered on.
Well, if we’re being honest, it turned out Powell didn’t have any evidence to support her claim, which was primarily about Dominion voting machines.
To be clear, I am completely opposed to electronic voting, and I was a huge supporter of Powell and Trump on this site at the time.
But they failed to make the case, unfortunately. Didn’t even really try is what it looked like.
Now Dominion is even suing companies like Fox for defamation. And it looks like Dominion is now going to win.
Which is horrible news for anyone who wants to stop voting machines.
Why hasn’t Trump fought harder?
They were stonewalled / ridiculed the entire time
why would Sidney Powell, lie? why would Gen. Flynn lie? why would Mike Lindell, lie? or Giuliani? or Bannon, or Navarro? what would they have to gain by lying?
truly it would have gone far easier for them and they would have been far better off just toeing the ruling class line that claims of election fraud are always ‘baseless.’
“We have to support illegals cause they are Catholics too”
All u need to know
Him and deep state neocon Murdochs and their posh lefty bitches
Trump has had time and money to put a good case against Dominion together, if there is one that can be made.
His personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and one of his top activists, Mike Lindell, are also being sued by Dominion, but Trump is completely uninvolved with either case. Reports also exist Trump never paid Giuliani for his services.
Why is this? Is there no possible case against Dominion that Trump thinks can be made? He thinks voting machines are 100% on the up and up?
Based on his lack of action, it’s starting to look that way. And it doesn’t matter what Trump SAYS, only what he DOES. If anything.
Did Paul Ryan actually say that? Lol!
I hope he was joking.
Anyone believes Biden got 12 million more than the Kenyan in 2008 needs to see someone professional
And the GOPe beat every single barometer and bellwether known to man historically as indicative of the national winner
By a long shot
Trump got a record real votes
Beat by mail in fraud and engineered in plain sight as needed by extended voting counts in high minority metro areas in purple states
This is what happens when u have no independent media and the Republican Party wanted trump gone too so they went along
Now look around u even on this forums the squishes and quislings out in force already
Maybe Sidney Powell did lie, because itbwas her job to make ridiculous the idea of fraudulent voting machines?
Please tell us what court case she was allowed to present her evidence of Dominion fraud in?
I’m no squish. I’m asking where TF is tough guy Trump on these Dominion lawsuits. I want to see Dominion shut down. Where is he?
There’s court cases going on right now, FYI. That is the point of this article.
Why isn’t Trump commenting in Dominion, instead of freaking Rihanna?
No. She is a good attorney. The court denied admission of much that she had
He was busy simultaneously fighting the left and their lies, (and losing badly) while being backstabbed by the retards and saboteurs and family grifters (oy!) he handpicked while he did NOTHING to secure his re-election.
I believe those fux newz saying voting fraud doesn't exist through demonion machines are $cared and have become ¢oward$ under the pressure.
