Fox News released a statement: “We are proud of our 2020 election coverage and will vigorously defend this meritless lawsuit in court.” Smartmatic is also suing attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, who “made the case for election fraud as guests on Fox programs while representing President Donald J. Trump,” The New York Times reports.
