Here's the Dominion lawsuit against Giuliani. It's extremely long. Main focus is Giuliani talking about the Venezuelan angle. While that wasn't wise, it's not a smoking gun for Dominion. They also focus on Rudy grifting. Again, not wise but not terminal.…
The third focus is that Rudy said stuff about Dominion on TV but didn't say the same stuff in his lawsuits. That's probably the strongest argument Dominion has, as it tends to show that the evidence against Dominion was weak. But this can also be turned against Dominion as Rudy..
Rudy could argue that it was excluded from the lawsuits precisely because it was opinion and not fact. As attorney for Trump, Rudy may also have certain privileges.

Lastly, Dominion are really keen to have this take place in DC. Rudy should immediately move to transfer to...
to another, less toxic jurisdiction.

Of course, as many of us said, running with the Venezuela stuff wasn't very smart. There were plenty of other problems with Dominion. The truth is bad enough.

That said, overall, I still think Rudy is in much better shape than Sidney.

Here's a fascinating new filing in the Alfa Bank v Fusion case. After our corner on Twitter identified Danchenko, the Alfa guys moved to compel Danchenko to provide documents and testimony in relation to their own defamation case against Fusion GPS.…
In August 2020, the Alfa guys personally served Danchenko with a subpoena. Danchenko's lawyer, Mark Schamel, then spent nine weeks negotiating with the Alfa lawyers. When that failed, Alfa filed a motion to compel compliance from Danchenko and provided Schamel with a copy.
Schamel then asked for an extension, allegedly because he was moving to a new law firm (that's an interesting topic in and of itself in terms of taking Danchenko with him). Schamel then promised to file his motion–which he failed to do. He then ignored the Alfa lawyers.

This is McGoverns tweet from the day when he objected. Just a "protest vote", right.

Check out this guy's timeline. A treasure trove of tweets pushing Russiagate conspiracy theories.

Bit of inside baseball for Russiagate researchers.

There's a guy called Rtskhiladze who is suing Mueller and DOJ for defamation. His case features the usual Mueller distortions. Also interesting that the FBI has failed to release his April 4, 2018 302.… Image
A key part of Rtskhiladze's case is that he was misquoted by Mueller. We know Mueller likes using selective quoting to misdirect. What's interesting about this case is that it's a misquote with no ellipsis.

There is a "some" between "of" and "tapes". Changes meaning altogether. Image
Another common Mueller tactic. Just call everyone a "Russian". Image

"Mr. Mueller’s investigation should have exposed FBI malfeasance. Instead, “the Mueller team seems to have been ready to blindly accept anything fed to it by the system,” Mr. Barr says, adding that this “is exactly what DOJ should not be.”"

Wrong. Mueller *is* the system.
"But even prior to naming Mr. Durham special counsel, Mr. Barr had come to the conclusion that he didn’t “see any sign of improper CIA activity” or “foreign government activity before July 2016,” he says. “The CIA stayed in its lane.”"

Interesting, especially the word *before*.
"Mr. Durham’s probe is now tightly focused on “the conduct of Crossfire Hurricane, the small group at the FBI that was most involved in that,” as well as “the activities of certain private actors.” (Mr. Barr doesn’t elaborate.)"

The most appalling aspect of Dr Jill's thesis isn't even the dreadfully poor scholarship but the insight it gives into her thinking. The thesis is littered with statements like this, pigeonholing everyone and presupposing that because people look different, they cannot connect.
Developmental learners are low IQ. The college is unfortunately forced to admit them due to policy.

For all her virtue signaling, it seems like Dr Jill has some pretty strong prejudices.
Dr Jill has obviously not been out of her basement much.
