Dominion voting systems to sue staunch Trump supporter over his fraud claims
After Mike Lindell, CEO of Mypillow, accused Dominion voting systems of rigging the 2020 elections, the company released a statement telling the staunch president Trump ally to expect “imminent” litigation over his baseless claims.
Lindell, a major GOP donor, has repeatedly supported Trump’s claims of voter fraud, saying in December that “the biggest fraud is the Dominion machines.”
The conspiracy theory that Dominion’s technology switched votes from Trump to Biden has been thoroughly debunked.
Dominions voting systems claims Lindell conducted a smear campaign against its company’s name
Dominion voting systems sent Lindell a letter through its lawyers, informing the Mypillow CEO that they would take legal action over his “false and conspiratorial” claims.
Dominion also said that Lindell conducted a “smear campaign,” and used his social-media presence “to inflict the maximum amount of damage to Dominion’s good name and business operations.”
The company added that Lindell had “failed to identify a scintilla of credible evidence that even suggests that Dominion is somehow involved in a global conspiracy to harvest millions of votes in favor of President-elect Biden.
‘Of course, this is because no such evidence exists,’ it added.
Lindell stands firm in his support for Donald Trump
Lindell has remained a close Trump ally even after the Capitol siege. He said in a statement that he ‘welcomed the lawsuit and suggested it would help him share evidence to support his claims.’ His company, MyPillow, also offered a discount to customers using the code ‘FightForTrump.’
He was also photographed with President Trump on his final Friday in office. Their meeting notes were photographed by a Post photographer, Jabin Botsford, and included references to investigating the 2020 election.
The next day, Lindell tweeted a photo of a document he claimed proved, ‘Trump got around 79 m votes to 68 m votes for Biden.’ Twitter labeled the tweet as a ‘disputed’ claim of election fraud, and prevented it from being replied to, liked, or retweeted.
