Man Sues Trump and Giuliani over Heart Attacks

( A Delaware County Pennsylvania man has filed suit against former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and a number of Trump surrogates, alleging that their claims about the 2020 presidential election resulted in his receiving death threats and suffering two heart attacks.

James Savage, a voting machine warehouse custodian in Delaware County, claims in his suit that his character was “assassinated on a national level” by the defendants. He alleges that they made “deliberate, malicious, and defamatory statements and insinuations” about him during press conferences and in interviews on Fox News after the 2020 election.

According to the suit filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas last week, the defendants accused Savage of uploading 50,000 votes for Joe Biden. Savage’s suit alleges that these accusations were “hollow and/or false and/or baseless and/or vacuous claims”

In his lawsuit, Savage alleges that, despite knowing what might happen as a result of making those claims, Trump and his surrogates “spread, reposted, and disseminated” the claims against Savage. As a result, Savage alleges, he was threatened with physical violence and suffered two heart attacks.

The suit claims that Savage’s physical safety and reputation “were acceptable collateral damage for the wicked intentions of the Defendants.”

The lawsuit does concede that none of the defendants ever personally named Savage in any of their statements. Instead, they only referred to him as “voting machine warehouse supervisor.

But, Savage claims in the suit, anybody who heard what they said would have known they were referring to him since he was the only voting machine warehouse supervisor in Delaware County.

Additional defendants named in the lawsuit include President Trump’s former attorney Jenna Ellis, along with two Republican poll-watchers, Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes. Savage alleges that both Stenstrom and Hoopes made the “baseless” claim that they saw him uploading fraudulent votes on multiple occasions during the tabulation process.

The lawsuit argues that Savage lacks the knowledge and experience to meddle with vote tabulations and wouldn’t know how to go about altering vote totals, whether for fraudulent or legitimate purposes. The lawsuit also claims the defendants were fully aware that Savage’s job responsibilities did not include any vote tabulation.

Savage also names former Kansas Attorney General Phillip Kline and the nonprofit conservative legal group The Thomas More Society as defendants in his suit.
