MyPillow Chief Spends Millions in Fresh Crusade to Push Trump’s Big Lie

The chief executive of MyPillow and staunch, fervent Donald Trump ally Mike Lindell says he has poured millions upon millions into a crusade to promote conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election. 

These theories have continuously been debunked and proven to be completely false. 

Lindell has stacked a whopping estimated $35 to $40 million into his crusade, including a wave of lawsuits to get rid of voting machines that he faults for Trump’s defeat, a new movie about voting fraud, and a hefty legal stable. 

His cause? To promote charges that the 2020 election was riddled with fraud, despite a massive flood of evidence to the contrary. 

Lindell’s frantic quest to uphold Trump’s conspiracies and blatant lies shows an ally willing to do whatever it takes to put Trump back into power. 

Experts warn that his actions are a threat to democracy. 

As a part of his quest to dispense with electronic voting equipment that he has often charged are defective, Lindell is hosting a two-day “Moment of Truth” summit on August 20 and 21 in Missouri. He expects the event will draw 200 federal and state officials and staff, as well as hundreds of representatives from groups nationwide who have investigated election fraud this year and in 2020.

A small segment of the summit will feature 10 conservative sheriffs who have become increasingly active in fighting purported election fraud. Lindell said he invited these sheriffs so they have “a platform to get their voices heard”.

The Lindell summit shows the growing role he has, as well as the growing roles his allies have, in a sprawling web of people waging a multi-front war to push Trump’s big lie about the 2020 elections. 

The Trump web strives to mobilize supporters to ramp up the scrutiny of the upcoming elections, as well as poll workers and poll watchers. 

These moves could easily curb voting rights and intimidate voters, election watchdogs and experts warn. 

The “big lie” network has been bolstered by other multimillionaires including Patrick Byrne, the former chief executive of Overstock, and at least $1m from a Donald Trump political action committee.
