Dominion Voting Systems filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Monday over his election lies.
“Mr. Lindell advertised ‘absolute proof,’ but he delivered absolute nonsense and fake documents sourced from the dark corners of the internet. The cartoonish evidence that he offered in his video cannot be reconciled with any level of logic or truth,” Dominion attorney Megan Meier said in a statement Monday. “Mike Lindell needs to be held accountable for defaming Dominion and undermining the integrity of our electoral system all the while profiting from it.”
The lawsuit alleges that Lindell “knowingly lied about Dominion to sell more pillows to people who continued tuning in to hear what they wanted to hear about the election.”
Despite receiving three letters from the company warning about potential litigation, Lindell doubled down on his attacks against Dominion, releasing a documentary spreading his lies about the election.
Lindell told the Daily Beast last week that he hopes Dominion would sue him so he could obtain evidence.
“That would so make my day because then they would have to go into discovery, and that would make my job a lot easier,” he said. “It’ll be faster for me to get to the evidence, and to show the people in the public record the evidence we have about these machines. I will not stop until every single person on the planet knows, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, what these machines did to us.”
Dominion Voting systems filed a similar lawsuit against Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell each, last month alleging that they spread numerous defamatory statements about the company while working with Trump to overturn the results of the election.
