Dominion has sued MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell for repeating false claims that their machines were manipulated to rig the election against Trump.…
Calling Lindell a "talented salesman," Dominion argues that he used his election-fraud claims to sell pillows to like-minded Trump supporters.
Lindell told me he was "very happy to hear" that Dominion had sued him. "Now I can get to the evidence faster. It's going to be amazing," he said, adding that he plans to continue releasing "more movies, more documentaries" about alleged election fraud.
(Hand counts and audits in Georgia and elsewhere have consistently found no meaningful difference between votes tabulated by Dominion machines and votes on paper ballots.)
Lindell scoffed at the notion that he had tried to use his election-fraud claims to market pillows, saying that his efforts have in fact harmed his business. "I've lost 22 retailers. It has hit me financially like crazy," he said.
Read the full complaint here:…
To back up its claim that Lindell has pushed false election claims as a way to sell pillows, Dominion gives several examples of Lindell spreading the claims on shows where both he and the host urge viewers to shop MyPillow. Here's one:
Just yesterday, Lindell said on Rudy Giuliani's podcast that he has sold 300,000 copies of his book in the last 3-4 weeks -- a period in which Lindell was making headlines for persisting with false election claims.
Correction -- he said this on Feb. 19. Not yesterday.

There were other scary episodes that we couldn't fit into this reconstruction. Two congresswomen, Kathleen Rice and Stephanie Murphy, were stranded in the Capitol basement for more than an hour, listening to the rioters rush in, Rice told me. (thread)
They had been on the way to meet Sen. Kyrsten Sinema on the Senate side of the Capitol around 1:45 pm when they realized they were in danger. They holed up in a room with no protection except a chair pushed up against the door.
"We heard a lot of screaming and then we just heard thundering footsteps of people -- and that was when they invaded the Capitol and started to make their way through," Rice said. She and Murphy stayed silent, afraid the rioters would hear them.
