Mike Lindell predicts voter fraud ‘will be a game changer’ in Michigan
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has predicted that a “game-changing” development will soon see the light of day in Michigan, where a 2020 election-focused trial is still ongoing.
The controversial mustached businessman, whose electoral fraud documentary has been criticized by critics as being riddled with lies, said there will be a court filing on Monday that will be “very embarrassing” for Newsmax, a conservative media outlet that apologized last week to an employee. at Dominion Voting Systems for voting manipulation claims.
“I’ll have some really big news once this day is over,” Lindell told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast. “It’s a game-changer, and it’s going to really make Newsmax look bad.”
Lindell appeared to be referring to a lawsuit in Antrim County, Michigan that went from a court challenge over a proposal from a local marijuana retailer to allegations that Dominion machines and software could have manipulated intentionally the election results in the ballot.
A judge recently allowed testimony from people on a list of “expert witnesses” provided by plaintiffs to rebut a report released by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office claiming human error, not machine software from Dominion Voting Systems, led to early tabulation errors in County Antrim. Among those on the list of “expert witnesses” is Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based company hired by the Republican Senate in Arizona to conduct an audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County.
County Antrim Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer is also expected to hear arguments over whether to dismiss the lawsuit next week.
Dominion Voting Systems, which has lambasted allegations it was involved in any sort of electoral fraud, filed a $ 1.3 billion libel lawsuit against Lindell in February over his allegations that his voting machines were rigged. Lindell refused to back down, announcing last month that he would sue Dominion for $ 1.6 billion in damage he claims the company caused to MyPillow.
Newsmax was sued by National Director of Product Strategy and Security Eric Coomer in December. After several months, the outlet admitted on Friday that it had “no evidence” that the employee had operated voting machines, and the two reached an undisclosed settlement.
Lindell insisted to Bannon that saying there was no evidence is “100% false” and alluded to the Maricopa County audit, saying: “The timing is just very suspicious. here when you have Maricopa County coming up. “
Arizona and Michigan, two states won by President Joe Biden, have been cited by former President Donald Trump and his allies as places where they expect there to be evidence showing he there was fraud in the 2020 election.
Election officials insisted that their respective contests were secure and that there was no widespread fraud. A manual count audit in County Antrim found a deviation of just a dozen votes from the first table, with 9,759 votes won by Trump and 5,959 for Biden. Biden won the state of Michigan and his 16 electoral college votes by roughly 150,000 ballots.
Dozens of electoral fraud lawsuits across the country have been dismissed by the courts. The Supreme Court rejected Trump’s latest election challenge in March.
Still, Lindell insisted Trump would return to power in August.
