Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow and a 2020 candidate, has announced intentions to organize a demonstration outside Fox News’ New York City headquarters. “We are going to do something out in front of Fox News, I think we should have—you know, if people want to go down there, maybe we should give out Frank Speech signs,” Lindell said on his Friday evening show. “They [Fox News] are a big part of our country being taken from us,” he added, before labeling the network on which he built his pillow empire “controlled opposition,” which he described as the “worst” he has “ever seen in history.”
The pillow tycoon has sought to re-enter Fox News’s good graces after severing relations with the network over the network’s refusal to show one of his conspiracy theory-laced advertisements. Lindell’s sidekick, Douglas Frank, went to Telegram late Saturday night to assert that Fox News is “not a credible source of news” and that their top primetime anchors are “traitors to our country.”
Lindell has also alleged that the probe of MAGA Colorado elections clerk Tina Peters was part of a deep state attempt to disrupt his ostensibly successful Supreme Court appeal to reinstall former President Donald Trump.
Lindell stated on Steve Bannon’s podcast that the government was attempting to discredit his associates because they were afraid of what his lawsuit would reveal.
“This is to put fear into everybody — look at the timing!” Lindell said. “One week from today, on November 23rd, the states are suing the U.S. government at the Supreme Court! It’s over! This is where it’s all going!”
Lindell went on to say that a number of Democratic attorneys general had signed on to his case in support of overturning the election results, but he didn’t name them.
He then went on a long diatribe about how all media outlets, including Fox News, were ignoring his alleged Supreme Court lawsuit as part of a scheme to deceive the American people into believing Trump would not be re-elected.
“It’s propaganda — Hitler did it!” he said. “Goebbels was the best at it back in Nazi Germany! It’s brainwashing! That’s what it is! You brainwash and then you pit people against each other!”
Lindell concluded his rant by reassuring viewers that “we are very blessed because we have all the evidence!”
Lindell first touted his plan to hold a Thanksgiving weekend marathon unveiling the evidence he has gathered proving Donald Trump was robbed of re-election back at the beginning of November.
Lindell has refused to reveal the names of lawyers who handed him a mysterious letter he handed to Trump following the January 6th insurgency.
Lindell is more than happy to discuss his “Black Friday prank,” but remained silent when asked about his interactions with the former president.
Despite the fact that the House select committee investigating the Capitol incident considers the businessman a “person of interest,” Lindell insists he hasn’t heard from them and is unconcerned.
“Lindell said he has not been contacted by the committee and ‘could care less if the two-page letter he delivered to Trump on Jan. 15, nine days after the Trump-incited mob attacked the Capitol, is among the material turned over. ‘What does that have to do with me?’ he told Huff Post,” Date reports before adding, “Lindell claimed he met with Trump primarily to give him four pages of ‘proof’ that the election had been hacked by China but also handed over an envelope he said was given to him by two lawyers to give to Trump.”
When asked about the lawyer’s identities Lindell stated,” None of your business. Are you out of your mind?” before adding he has no idea what was contained in the letter, explaining, “It was given to me in confidence…. I had never read it. I had never looked at it.”
Lindell was seen on Jan. 15 in the White House holding two sheets of folded paper, one of which had the words “martial law, if necessary, at the first hint of any” scrawled on it, with the beginning and end of the sentence hidden by the fold.
Lindell has stated that he had a slew of “state attorneys general signing on to his complaint” that he plans to take to the Supreme Court, but he declined to name them, claiming that he was protecting them from “attacks.”
The Supreme Court, the country’s highest appeals court, normally does not accept cases that have not been heard elsewhere, and Lindell provided no explanation as to why the justices would make an exception for him. “I honestly believe they’ll accept it 9-0,” he remarked. “I really think they’re going to accept it 9-0,” he said. “It will require a new election across the board…. Declare the 2020 vote void and order new elections across the board.”
