Facing massive defamation lawsuit, Newsmax reverses claims of election fraud

Newsmax, the conservative alternative streaming news network with a number of anchors who contributed reporting that gave credence to the conspiracy claim that Dominion Voting Systems purposely rigged the 2020 election in then-candidate Joe Biden’s favor, made a stunning announcement in the midst of a multi-billion-dollar defamation lawsuit.

According to the Washington Examiner, Newsmax is apparently no longer on the legal hook after they issued an apology to Dominion Director of Product Strategy and Security Eric Coomer, reporting on Friday that they found not a shred of evidence that Croomer was involved in manipulating the election outcome in any way. 

Newsmax backs off election fraud claims

On Friday, Newsmax cleared the air that the network no longer believes Croomer was involved in any wrongdoing or fraudulent activities as far as the 2020 presidential election is concerned.

“Newsmax has found no evidence that Dr. Coomer interfered with Dominion voting machines or voting software in any way, nor that Dr. Coomer ever claimed to have done so,” the bombshell statement read, which was published online and will reportedly be aired on the network.

“Nor has Newsmax found any evidence that Dr. Coomer ever participated in any conversation with members of ‘Antifa,’ nor that he was directly involved with any partisan political organization,” the statement continued. “On behalf of Newsmax, we would like to apologize for any harm that our reporting of the allegations against Dr. Coomer may have caused to Dr. Coomer and his family.”

According to NBC News, shortly before Newsmax published the detailed, apologetic statement online, Croomer dropped the conservative media outlet as a defendant in a defamation lawsuit which still includes prominent figures like Rudy Giuliani, the 2020 Trump campaign, Sidney Powell, and others who pushed similar claims.

Croomer and Newsmax also reportedly reached a monetary settlement, though exact figures were not made available to the public.

The legal battle continues

Croomer’s defamation lawsuit against the aforementioned entities and people, filed in December, is still ongoing. Shortly after the November 2020 election, which was the peak of the election fraud conspiracy rhetoric, Croomer said he was “terrified” after his photos of his home, his address, and other personal details circulated on a number of right-leaning websites at the time.

Dominion Voting Systems filed a similar lawsuit against Fox News, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, saying that their claims that Dominion was involved in rigging the 2020 election “caused us severe damage and undermined trust in American democratic institutions.”

Fox News has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and recently issued a statement to that effect.

“FOX News Media is proud of our 2020 election coverage, which stands in the highest tradition of American journalism, and will vigorously defend against this baseless lawsuit in court,” a recent statement from the cable news giant read.

Only time will tell how others facing lawsuits from Croomer and Dominion — along with competitor Smartmatic — respond to the mounting legal pressure, but with Newsmax clearing its name by issuing an apology and agreeing to a settlement, it’s probably only a matter of time before the rest of the defendants follow suit.

  1. So Croomer and Dominion and Smartmatic are bullies on top of being corrupt!

    Truth invites scrutiny.
    Error demands tolerance!

    1. Yes they are Bullies. We the People know our 2020 Election was Rigged and Stolen with Fraudulent.
      With time the Truth will come to light. I Pray it isn’t very long in coming.
      Then the Biden-Harris and Handler’s all need to be Impeached and Removed from our White House and Capitol. Bunch of Deranged Swamp Creatures

      1. It will come out, oh yes, definitely, it will come out! Such bullies, I knew their had to be money involved! Money is in everything the Dems touch! It’s sickening what they can do! The Dems are liars, corrupt, evil, liars!

  2. Having a machine connected to the internet involved in the counting and transfer of votes is ridiculous on various levels the incorruptible nature of American election must be sacrosanct and indisputable

    1. Further then that – -have the voting machines connected to and interacting with the internet is ILLEGAL and forbidden by law.

  4. Suesja, The left never aplolgizes for anything, they will not even accept guilt or blame for anything, that should tell you a lot about their upbringing.
    A real man will accept and apologize for his mistakes, some that think they are real men will just find a way to put the blame elsewhere.

  5. So Newsmax is no better than the rest of the MSM. As soon as pressure is applied they cave. Why am I not surprised!

    1. After Fox News was so quick to project that Arizona had gone for Joe Biden, News Max was eager to cash in on their so-called ratings going up tremendously. I guess News Max will have to watch their ratings plummet now that they have caved to Dominion pressure. They are no better than the other liberal MSM. Guess I’ll have to delete their site.

  6. Tell me why we cannot file impeachment charges against Biden Harris and Pelosi they all have done things that make it so they should not be an office ever again and they are killing our country bit by bit I think they really need to be impeached and taking out of office and sent away

    1. Because of the RINO’S in the Republican party. The rest just don’t have enough baseBalls to play the game

  7. Shame on you Newsmax. You are now just another spineless entity who kowtows to pressure from leftist bullies and those who want to destroy our great America. I had hoped you would be what you said you would, a news entity that tells the truth, not one that after the truth is told says I’m sorry. I will find another outlet that is not afraid to tell the truth and stand up for what is right. DISGUSTING!!!!!

  8. Disappointing – so Newsmax caved to the corrupt left – WOW – just like all our
    Republican governors caved & certified a FRAUDULENT STOLEN ELECTION!!!! Can anyone name names –
    Ducey of AZ😩😩😩😩☹️👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  9. A lot of pieces of the puzzle or falling Into place remember Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s were meeting with Chinese officials in The same city as the lab in four days after they return the virus hit, And of course that gave them the means for mail in voting leading to voter fraud But it all depended on keeping the American people locked down, but the Development of the Vaccine was faster and more efficient Then they ever guessed solution open the borders that’s the immigrants come in without being tested for the virus that’s why we’re seeing Surges in the virus now, And yes you guessed it Joe Biden is rushing To do as much damage as he can with Congress is trying to put in place laws,That’s not going to just be hard to reverse but they’re also trying to make boating and everything else where they stay in power
    Food for thought

    1. And the conspiracy-right STILL won’t admit they’re on the wrong track. I think it’s just pure laziness at failing to knuckle down to do the work it takes to actually win elections.

    1. I am with you Cherie. I had high hopes for Newsmax but if they back down so easily they are cowards and a wast of space.

  10. The fact is votes were stolen by cyber attacks. This was caught in 2016 by some Texas firms and in 2020 also. In both obstuction of justice was perpetrated. In 2016 they were ready to approach the Supreme Court and the INJUSTICE Department stopped the presentation of facts. ACTUAL DATA PROVABLE was caught off the satellites then and now citing origin computer ID and IP address and location through satellite and then the target location IP address and computer ID with if hack was successful and if so how many votes were shifted away from Trump. 2020 it was a lot worse but the so called justices either are afraid to do their job or are part and parcel of the corruption stealing American votes.
