Officials with a company that makes voting machines are threatening a lawsuit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who continues to make baseless claims of fraud that swung the 2020 election to Joe Biden.
Lindell, who was President Trump’s campaign chair in Minnesota and has been an ardent supporter of the out-going chief executive, says Dominion Voting Systems should bring it on.
Officials with Dominion say Lindell’s social media posts that the machines helped throw the election to Biden are damaging their reputation. The machines are a centerpiece of the conspiracy theories floated across the Internet and supported by Trump and allies including Rudy Giuliani. Experts have said many times there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud and nothing that points to Dominion as a trouble spot in the 2021 election. Trump's court cases alleging fraud were tossed out of courts across the country.
The New York Times first reported the Lindell story on Monday.
Lindell says Dominion is simply nervous because they know he has the evidence against them.
My Pillow is based in Chaska and was founded by Lindell in 2004.
He is reportedly leaning toward a run for Minnesota governor in 2022.
