MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says Dominion hired 'hit groups and trolls' to 'cancel' him over voter fraud claim
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has alleged that Dominion Voting Systems "hired hit groups and bots and trolls" to help get him "canceled" by ousting him from Twitter and threatening retail stores to stop selling his products. Dominion threatened to sue Lindell last week over his repeated claims that their voting machines had fraudulently flipped votes from former President Donald J. Trump to the current President Joe Biden during the November election. "A week ago, Dominion... went on TV and said they were going to go after Mike Lindell," the MyPillow CEO told Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday. "Well, they did. They hired hit groups and bots and trolls, went after all my vendors, all these box stores, to cancel me out."
Twitter permanently suspended Lindell's account on Monday, citing repeated violations of its misinformation policy. That said, Lindell's support for Trump and his claims of widespread voter fraud is well known.
Lindell, on December 19, called on Trump to impose martial law on seven battleground states to conduct a free and fair investigation of the polls. The entrepreneur asked the former POTUS to seize voting machines and ballot boxes in these swing states. However, he took the tweet down about an hour later. Then, on January 6, Lindell attended Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally, which preceded the breach of the US Capitol that resulted in five deaths. At the rally, Lindell alleged that Fox News had conspired with Democrats to steal the election as the network had called the state of Arizona early in Biden's favor, Newsweek reported. "I'm serious, they had to be on it!" Lindell said at the time. "They should all go to prison when they are found out."
On January 15, left-wing activist group Sleeping Giants asked Walmart, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Lowe's if they would continue to carry Lindell's products after he "called for the insurrection." The group tweeted a video of Lindell saying: "This is the only time we have in history to beat these guys, to suppress the evil and beat the evil. This is a fight for everything we've grown up with, everything we live for, everything this country stands for. The whole world is watching and, 100 percent, Donald Trump is going to be your president for the next four years." His comments reportedly came following the Capitol riot.
On January 20, Lindell revealed that several of the nation's leading retailers had stopped carrying MyPillow products. While Lindell suggested it was because of his support for Trump, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Kohl's, cited "poor sales" as the reason for the coordinated discontinuation of his product offerings.
Earlier this week, MEAWW reported how Lindell could be running for office as the Governor of Minnesota with a hope that Trump would endorse him for the GOP nomination. He told Associated Press that Trump had promised him, “Mike if you did it, I would get behind you.”
Most Americans remember Lindell for his late-night infomercials where he sold pillows. The millionaire business mogul was recently in the news for hiring celebrity attorney Charles Harder in his ongoing case against a media outlet that talked about his alleged relationship with ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ star Jane Krakowski. His ‘Lindell Recovery Network’ has is said to have helped many Americans who have struggled with drug addiction.
