Former President Donald Trump could face a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems for spreading election fraud claims in the 2020 presidential race.

"We have not ruled out any potential defendants who participated in this defamation campaign," said Stephen Shackelford, an attorney for the voting company.

Dominion filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani, Trump's former personal lawyer. The company also filed a similar suit against lawyer Sidney Powell and a $1 billion suit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.

According to Powell, "no reasonable person would conclude" that her comments about alleged election fraud "were truly statements of fact."

Trump spread election fraud claims about Dominion and continues to assert that something went wrong when he lost the election to President Joe Biden.

Shackelford said that, for now, Dominion's legal team is "focused" on Fox News as it announced a $1.6 billion lawsuit against the network on Friday. A Fox News spokesperson said they "will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court."
