MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he's losing $65 million over election fraud claims and it proves he's not pushing conspiracy theories for the money
Dominion filed a lawsuit against Lindell seeking $1.3 billion in damages and claiming he used election-fraud claims to turbocharge MyPillow sales.
"MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he expects to lose $65 million in pillow revenue this year because of retailer boycotts over his claims that the 2020 US election was rigged. That projection Lindell told Insider in an interview Monday after being served with a defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems seeking $1.3 billion in damages, is evidence he isn't pushing election-fraud claims for the money. Dominion alleges in the lawsuit that the conspiracy theories are a platform for Lindell to sell more pillows. "I lost 20 retailers, and it's cost me $65 million this year that I won't get back, OK?" Lindell told Insider. "There's your story. Print it right. Don't try and twist this."
Following the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, Lindell only doubled down on election-fraud claims. He met with Trump in the Oval Office, taking notes with him apparently suggesting the president consider declaring martial law. He continued to push the theories in media appearances and funded a two-hour "docu-movie" based on them called "Absolute Proof." - [which contained absolutely no proof]."
No man has sacrificed more blood, sweat and treasure than Mike Lindell...while others only supported Trump for personal gain; this guy put his money where his mouth was....so why doesn't he get more recognition and consideration as a presidential or at least a senatorial or gubernatorial candidate?? He should easily be able to win a governor's race in Minnesota or at the very least run as a VP candidate on a Matt Gaetz or Ron DeSantis ticket -- he would be unbeatable.
