MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Defies Dominion Threats to Sue over Election Fraud Claims
Dominion demands Lindell 'preserve and retain all documents'
CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell issued a stark response to Dominion Voting Systems after receiving a legal threat accusing him of participating in a "smear campaign."
Dominion is accused of taking part in an election fraud scheme.
On Monday, Dominion demanded in a cease and desist letter that Lindell "preserve and retain all documents relating to Dominion."
Lindell has been outspoken about Dominion and accused them of being complicit in a scheme to steal the election from President Donald Trump.
Claims alleged Dominion switched votes from Trump to Biden using chips in their software.
But Dominion has denied the accusations and recently sued pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell for $1.3 billion, accusing her of being part of a defamation campaign.
Lindell issued a defiant response to the lawsuit:
"I want Dominion to put up their lawsuit because we have 100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election," Lindell said.
Recently, the right-wing opinion website, The American Thinker, issued an apology and a retraction for claims of election tampering against the company.
Dominion accused the CEO of knowingly lying about the claims.
"Despite knowing your implausible attacks against Dominion have no basis in reality, you have participated in the vast and concerted misinformation campaign to slander Dominion," read the letter.
"Litigation regarding these issues is imminent."
Lindell has been subject to attacks for his statements of support for Trump in the past.
More recently, Lindell met with Trump in the White House and said that he talked to him about the evidence he claims to have about election fraud.
Bed Bath and Beyond stores also dropped MyPillow over pressure from a far-left boycott campaign by a liberal watchdog group.
"The most evil people on the planet!" Lindell said of the group.
Founder and CEO of Dominion, John Poulos, said he might bring the suit against President Donald Trump, he told Axios in a podcast interview.
“There were things being said about me personally, about the company that I founded that are so demonstrably false,” Poulos told Axios.
“The level of falsity just reached a level that I had not previously thought would ever be possible.”
"Our focus right now is on Sidney Powell, and there’s a very good reason for that," he added.
"She is by far — in our opinion — the most egregious and prolific purveyor of the falsities against Dominion,” Poulos said.
“Her statements have caused real damage, they’re demonstrably false."
