Excert of the Full letter (PDF)

...Last week we sent letters to Sidney Powell and various media entities, demanding retraction of their myriad false and conspiratorial claims about Dominion. Recently, you have positioned yourself as a prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign. Accordingly, Dominion formally demands that you (1) cease and desist making defamatory claims against Dominion 2 and (2) preserve and retain all documents relating to Dominion and your smear campaign against the company.

Litigation regarding these issues is imminent. With this letter you are on notice of your ongoing obligations to preserve documents related to Dominion's claims for defamation based on allegations that the company acted improperly during the November 2020 presidential election and somehow rigged the election in favor of President-Elect Joe Biden. Accordingly, you must ensure that you and your principals, your agents, your subcontractors, any agents or employees under your supervision, and all sources of information upon which you relied are preserving and retaining all emails, text messages (including messages sent over messaging platforms such as WhatsApp), audiovisual recordings, voice mails, drafts, notes, communications, documents, data, and electronically stored information of any kind that relate in any way to these matters. ...

On Jan. 6, 2021, the day supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in Washington, D.C. to protest the certification of the 2020 presidential election results by Congress and ultimately storm the U.S. Capitol, posts began to circulate widely social media claiming that an employee of an Italian security firm had interfered in the election to secure Joe Biden's victory.

This theory took off when an organization called Nations in Action published a press release on Jan. 6 with the headline "Senior IT Expert at Global Defense Contractor Testifies in Italian Federal Court; He and Others Switched Votes throughout America in the U.S. Presidential Race"

False. There is no legitimate evidence that an employee of the Italian defense company Leonardo SpA interfered in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Reading the Reuters article cited in your comment is worse than reading some of the garbage "evidence" proffered by the Giuliani/Powell crew. I didn't think I'd ever be offering that opinion, but there it is.

It reminds me of this little tidbit dug up by Mr Guiliani. (Oct 2019)

...Giuliani calls crucial new evidence: an affidavit from the Ukrainian prosecutor Biden got fired in 2016. But the sudden appearance of this sworn statement, six months after Giuliani and his allies began claiming that Biden had acted with corrupt intent to get that prosecutor removed, raises questions about who orchestrated the filing of that affidavit and how the effort to smear Biden might be related to a Ukrainian billionaire's fight against extradition to the United States to face bribery charges.

In the sworn statement, which was submitted to a court in Austria last month, Viktor Shokin, the former prosecutor general of Ukraine, claims that he was forced out because he was leading "a wide-ranging corruption probe" of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company that paid Biden's son Hunter to sit on its board.

In fact, there is no evidence that such a probe ever existed. Shokin was forced to resign following complaints from international donors to Ukraine, and Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, that he had failed to pursue cases against corrupt former officials " including the owner of the gas company that employed Hunter Biden. By threatening to withhold U.S. aid unless Shokin was removed, Joe Biden had, in fact, made it more likely that his son's employer would be prosecuted for corruption, not less likely....

I'm glad some action has been taken, but I throw Cease-and-Desist letters in the trash. Now if it comes from a prosecutor or judge, that's a whole other ball game.

@#7 ... I'm glad some action has been taken, but I throw Cease-and-Desist letters in the trash. ...

In general I'd agree about C&D letters.

However, in this instance the letter also instructs the recipient to save evidence. That's the part that caught my eye as this C&D letter not being your typical C&D letter.

I suspect we'll be seeing reports about Dominion ongoing court cases in the coming months.

Bye-bye, My Pillow:

One Fresh Pillow @OneFreshPillow

It's been a long day, but I have pillow news! To recap: National Guard sleeping on hard floors while defending our Capitol. Lots of you tagged us asking if we could help. We tweeted in search of a service member in DC, and had a hit within an hour. 1/8
