Mike Lindell, MyPillow CEO and fanatical supporter of former President Donald Trump, appeared to flout Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.3 billion lawsuit against him, telling Steve Bannon Saturday morning their case is “coming apart at the seams.”
Lindell offered his latest taunt towards Dominion on Real America’s Voice program, claiming that his personal probe into unfounded election voter fraud is currently conducting tests that will “prove” their machines were rigged in President Joe Biden‘s favor.
Lindell’s baseless claim flies in the face of ongoing litigation between the voting machine maker and the MyPillow founder. In February, Dominion filed a lawsuit against Lindell and his company, alleging he defamed them by repeatedly claiming to have evidence their voting machines fraudulently flipped votes against Trump last November.
Looking to flip the $1.3 billion lawsuit back on Dominion, Lindell filed a $1.6 billion countersuit in April that claimed the machine producer is a “government actor” and suppressed his First Amendment and 14th Amendment rights. Despite the looming legal threat, Lindell once again publicly chastised Dominion this weekend in what could be a damaging mid-litigation remarks.
“I’ll give Dominion a little scare this morning,” Lindell told Bannon, who hosted the Real America’s Voice livestream.
“We have machines now, I do. We have ES&S [Election Systems & Software] machines, we’ve got them all. And we’re going to be putting out so much information over the next couple weeks, and this isn’t from Arizona, these are machines we actually have. We’re doing all of our own tests, we’re going to have a lot of surprises and a lot of great news for the country.”
Dominion’s lawsuit against Lindell and his Minnesota-based MyPillow company seeks $651 million in punitive damages as well as $651.7 million in compensation for lost business as a result of his still-unproven fraud accusations.
“Their big cover-up is starting to, like you say, it’s coming apart at the seams,” Lindell continued. “If I worked for Dominion, if I was working at Dominion right now, I’d be turning myself in. I wouldn’t even let it go too much longer. It’s over for them,” Lindell concluded.
In the months since Dominion’s $1.3 billion lawsuit, Lindell filed the similarly massive countersuit and expressed his hope that the case makes it to the Supreme Court for judgement.
Newsweek reached out to representative for MyPillow as well as Dominion Voting Systems for additional remarks.
