MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has announced that he will countersue Dominion Voting Systems with the help of a team of lawyers, including Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz.
The U.S.-based voting machine supplier is suing MyPillow and Lindell for $1.3 billion for defamation, alleging that Trump’s ally spread baseless lies when he accused Dominion of helping to rig the 2020 presidential election.
Dominion is also suing Trump allies Rudolph Giuliani and Sidney Powell in similar civil suits. Meanwhile, several news outlets have retracted claims about Dominion voting machines after receiving legal warnings from the company’s lawyers.
During a conversation with Stephen K. Bannon on his popular “War Room Pandemic” podcast, Monday, Lindell said that he and his business would be “going after” Dominion in two separate lawsuits of his own. According to the conservative businessman, the voting software company violated RICO law by bullying news outlets that booked him as a guest.
“You’re also going to have My Pillow going after Dominion in a counter-suit,” Lindell, 59, said, explaining that the suits will be about protecting “First Amendment speech.”
“There are two cases. One will be My Pillow, one will be Mike Lindell. They’re both going to be a little bit different because what Dominion did is violate the rights of everyone in this country by using bullying lawsuits and RICO law,” he explained. “Basically what they’re saying to news outlets is, ‘If you let this guy on to talk about Dominion we’re going to sue you!’ That’s racketeering. That goes back to the mafia days.”
Lindell told Bannon that his countersuits have the potential of becoming one of the biggest First Amendment cases in history.
“Alan Dershowitz told me that this will be one of the biggest cases, if not the biggest case in history, for free speech, for the First Amendment,” he told Bannon.
He went on to argued that if Dominion gets away with intimidating news outlets from reporting on its machines, our first Amendment rights will be over.
“Then anybody can go bully newscasters and journalists—they can go bully anybody and say, ‘hey, if you do this, we’re going to bury you too,” he said.
Lindell told the host that he also had an important election challenge coming before the Supreme Court in five or six weeks, and he would be releasing evidence of fraud his team has collected on his website in the coming days.
Lindell expressed hope that his case before the Supreme Court case would be able to overturn the 2020 election, which he said was perpetrated by “the Communist party, and foreign entities overseas” with the help of domestic traitors here in the United States.”
“But you do agree that the Supreme Court hasn’t exactly been a great venue so far,” Bannon pointed out.
Lindell responded that those suits were thrown out on procedural grounds, but his team would be presenting overwhelming evidence proving that the election was stolen.
“Nobody’s ever looked at the evidence that we have now with the machines and what’s overseas, ever—except for Antrim County Michigan and a primary in Massachusetts,” he explained.
The MyPillow CEO told Bannon that he would be dumping all of the evidence onto his website so the American people can see it all, “and it will be amazing.”
He had a message for Dominion or Smartmatic employees who were allegedly part of the election fraud.
“I would just turn yourself in right now to get less jail time. Everyone’s going to fall like dominos,” Lindell said, adding that he has “whistleblowers and witnesses” who will testify in court.
Unfortunately, some are now arguing that the rigged 2020 election was an “industrial level crime” or “sovereign crime,” meaning our government was a participant, either actively or passively enabling the fraud. If the government, at the state and federal level, the FBI, various government agencies, and the courts were all in on the scam, this does not bode well for Lindell’s case.
Lindell told Bannon that he would have his website and social media accounts exposing the fraud up and running in about two weeks.
