MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in a recent interview with Right Side Broadcasting Network, a right-wing network, revealed that he has spent more than $40 million in his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Lindell is known for being a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump and his false allegations that there was widespread fraud which caused him to lose the election. Last year, he was removed from Twitter following his continuous promotion of conspiracy theories. In response, he launches Frank Speech.
In a recent interview, Lindell revealed that the general public would now be allowed to buy stock in his company. He added that this would allow everyone who wanted it to have a “little piece of the pie.” He proceeded to state that the reason he was doing this was because he needed help after having spent more than $40 million trying to “save this country.”
A clip of Lindell sharing this fact was shared on Twitter by lawyer Ron Filipkowski and has since its posting garnered over 200,000 views.
This information comes after an arbitration panel ordered that Lindell was obliged to pay $5 million to a software engineer who proved that the data in Lindell’s possession did not show that China had interfered with the U.S. election in 2020. This was in connection to the “Prove Mike Wrong Challenge” where Lindell had said he would give $5 million to whoever proved him wrong.
Dominion Voting Systems, Smartmatic, and former Dominion employee Eric Coomer had also filed defamation lawsuits against Lindell, which led to the CEO having to borrow $10 million to fight these cases.
