Trump backs Mike Lindell's plan to melt down Dominion voting machines
Former President Trump backed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's idea of melting down voting machines from last year's election to make bars for prison windows during a Tuesday night interview. Lindell has been one of the most vocal proponents of conspiracy theories around Trump's 2020 defeat.And the pair spent 35 minutes discussing the election in an interview posted to Lindell's media channel.Lindell said to Trump, who was dressed in a tuxedo as if on his way to dinner at Mar-a-Lago where the interview was conducted, that anyone who had moved on from the 2020 election was 'saying that you’re OK' with the results.
Lindell sued Dominion in June to counter the voting-technology company's earlier lawsuit against him and his company MyPillow. The CEO has pushed baseless conspiracy theories alleging Dominion flipped the results of the 2020 presidential election from then-President Donald Trump to then-Democratic nominee
Lindell has claimed his lawsuit will force the Supreme Court to overturn the 2020 election results and reinstate Trump as president, which is not possible under the US Constitution. In addition to suing MyPillow and Lindell , Dominion has also sued Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell

It was a last-minute pressure campaign orchestrated by the RNC and McDaniel that prevented his case from moving forward and “saving the country,” Lindell now alleges.
“We believe that they have reached out to multiple [attorneys general] and put pressure on them, not to sign the Supreme Court complaint,” Lindell said Monday on his evening livestream, this time from aboard his private plane as he scrambled to lock down the signatures required to file his complaint with the high court.

"Nobody had ever made a suggestion of election malfeasance," a Lake County official said.Lindell has been a key promoter of former President Donald Trump's unfounded conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was "rigged" or "stolen" in favor of President Joe Biden. Although Lindell and others continue to spread the misinformation, the "evidence" they have brought forward to support their theory has been consistently discredited and debunked.

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
Vouching for Lindell 's data in a scientific or technical sense is beyond my circle of competence. What I can do is tell you about the people vouching to me for the data, whose word does cause me to incline firmly towards believing the data Lindell is bringing forward is genuine, then leave you to make your own decision.

With a poor WiFi connection marring his live-streamed rant, Lindell blasted McDaniel, alleging she orchestrated a vast Republican conspiracy against him when she finally acknowledged late last week that President Joe Biden won the 2020 election.
“How dare the RNC try and stop this case from getting to the Supreme Court. Shame on you, RNC! You are worse than Fox [News] now!” he stated, referencing his claims that the cable giant has silenced him. “You can’t tell me why Ronna McDaniel, the head of the RNC, made a statement saying Biden won three days before this Supreme Court complaint was supposed to go to the Supreme Court.”
“What about the timing of that, America!” he continued. “Why would she say that at that moment in time? She didn't have to say that. What, is she trying to get more donor money? Is she trying to get donor money from Democrats? She is as RINO as they come!” McDaniel did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment.
The MyPillow Guy Really Could Destroy Democracy
In the time I spent with Mike Lindell, I came to learn that he is affable, devout, philanthropic—and a clear threat to the nation.Here is what you probably don’t imagine: an affable, self-made midwesterner, one of those goofy businessmen who makes his own infomercials. A recovered crack addict, no less, who laughs good-naturedly when jokes are made at his expense. A man who will talk to anyone willing to listen (and to many who aren’t). A philanthropist. A good boss. A patriot—or so he says—who may well be doing more damage to American democracy than anyone since Jefferson Davis.
Lindell has alleged—without providing substantiating evidence—that former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to President Joe Biden due to massive voter fraud. The conspiracy theorist has claimed that voting systems were hacked by China, which election officials across the country have rejected as

During the interview, which aired on the Right Side Broadcasting Network on Tuesday night, Trump and Lindell talked at length about the 2020 presidential election and promoted various election conspiracy theories.
The MAGA loyalist further admitted that numerous Republican attorneys general had called him to seek a time extension on his Tuesday deadline before they signed their names to his filing. “Can we get more time?” Lindell claimed such GOP officials told him in recent days.
Clearly irate and yelling over the roar of his plane’s engines, Lindell argued that if the predominantly Republican state attorneys general ultimately refuse to sign onto his Supreme Court filing, the pillow baron—never one to back down from a delusional pursuit—has a backup plan.
“We do have a copy of the complaint,” which Lindell said he would simply release to the public on Thanksgiving Day if it ends up not being filed due to a lack of signatures. “Worst-case scenario, let’s say, a lot of them want to delay signing it,” he added, under the impression his fervent supporters would then mount local pressure campaigns against their own state attorneys general after seeing the contents of his filing.

Additionally, the pillow tycoon claimed late Monday that he was making a last-minute sprint across five states in the dead of night to convince attorneys general to sign his papers. “I am on my way to another city,” he asserted, adding that if they don’t sign by Tuesday he can always try to get them to sign by Wednesday.
“Worst-case scenario because what is going on out there with the RNC,” he said. “Shame on them. How dare they!”
Since former President Donald Trump decidedly lost the 2020 election, the MyPillow CEO has been on an unending crusade based on lies about widespread voter fraud. Lindell has continually promised that after his investigations prove his conspiracy theory, the election would be overturned and Trump would be reinstated. But his self-imposed deadlines have repeatedly come and gone, including a deadline for Trump to be reinstated by early August.
Along the way, Lindell has fought plenty of battles against unlikely opponents, including right-wing behemoths like Newsmax and Fox News, as well as invisible foes like “antifa” insurgents at his unhinged “cyber symposium” this past summer.
Lindell concluded his Monday evening live stream by promoting his 96-hour virtual “Thanks-a-Thon” event set to kick off Wednesday night at midnight and feature four straight days of even more election conspiracies.
But as of Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court had no record of any filing from the state attorneys general or Lindell.
And reached for comment by The Daily Beast about his non-existent Supreme Court filing and why it hasn’t been made public, the pillow mogul fumed.
“Are you out of your mind?" Lindell shouted. “You call me again, I am suing you!”
