- Former Fox News producer Abby Grossberg says her former employer withheld evidence from Dominion.
- Grossberg said Fox did not release audio recordings of Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani.
- Grossberg, who accused Fox of discrimination, was fired last month.
A former Fox News producer who sued the company last month for discrimination is now suing her former employer for failing to provide audio from conversations with major 2020 rejectionists, which could weaken her defamation defense.
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Delaware, attorneys for Fox News producers Tucker Carlson and Maria Bartiromo said their clients lost tapes and transcripts of conversations they had with campaign lawyers, including Trump, Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani. . And so on. They took place after the 2020 election, indicating that in some cases they knew their claims of voter fraud were unsubstantiated.
Fox News spokeswoman Irena Briganti denied Grossberg’s claims. “Fox has done its investigative work on the Dominion case,” he told Insider.
In the recording, which is believed to have been taken around November 15, 2020, Bartomeu asked Giuliani in campaign statements before the on-air segment about Dominion Voting Systems’ evidence of widespread voter fraud. Trumpet. “It’s a little more complicated,” Giuliani replied.
When asked about separate allegations against the maker of the voting machine and voting software by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Rep., Giuliani was more candid, Grossberg said: “I read it.” I can’t confirm…” he said.
“Nancy Pelosi is interested in this deal,” Batiromo told the audience anyway (and wrongly). This line was cited in Dominion’s $1.6 million defamation suit. A judge recently ruled that Dominion’s case should go to trial, saying Fox made blatantly false statements about the company and did not file a “good faith and disinterested report.”
The conversation with Giuliani and another, Sidney Powell, was uploaded to Otter used by Fox News employees, and many of the transcripts were shared and discussed by email, Grossberg said. Attorneys for Fox News obtained “audio recordings and transcripts” of interviews that show Dominion’s claims are “absolutely baseless,” Grossberg’s phones and emails.
However, despite access to those records, Grossberg said Fox News did not share the conversations during the discovery process and excluded evidence that would show “whether or not Fox News acted with malice in publishing damaging statements about Dominion.”
Grossberg, who was fired from Fox News in March after her job sued her over widespread misconduct at the company, also worked with Bartiromo as a “senior adviser and press secretary to President Trump.” Contrary to public statements, the Trump campaign has admitted that it has no evidence that voting machines contributed to fraud in Georgia.
“Trump’s advisers responded with dismay that there was nothing wrong with these cars,” Grossberg said in a statement. According to the statement, the same consultant complained that the media did not pay enough attention to the upcoming voter verification, saying that the press “practically did not review the January 6 deadline.”
According to the documents, Powell was unable to verify some of Durye’s claims. For example, when asked about the “very compelling evidence” of fraud in his off-air conversation with Bartiromo, Powell replied that “it was a witness who gave an improper description of how it was.” [the voting software] “Who is it? Why is it?” I invented it and saw how it works.
A spokesman for Dominion declined to comment.
