Mike Lindell Insists There Are 'Two Pathways' to Change 2020 Election Results

  Mike Lindell Insists There Are 'Two Pathways' to Change 2020 Election Results The MyPillow CEO claimed that the 2020 election will be "pulled down" after his planned "cyber symposium" in August.Lindell, a staunch Trump loyalist, continues to baselessly claim that the last presidential election was "rigged" or "stolen" by the Chinese Communist Party to favor Biden instead of Trump. The extraordinary allegations about so-called "widespread fraud" in the election have already been thoroughly litigated in state and federal courts and wholly discredited. But Lindell and Trump continue to promote the groundless conspiracy theory.

Lindell , 60, said he asked Fox News to run a commercial promoting his cyber symposium which he plans to live stream next month. The staunch Trump ally said the commercial wouldn' t specifically mention claims of election fraud . However, he said the symposium 'will prove the 2020 election was stolen' from then-President Donald Trump. Fox News confirmed to DailyMail.com that the network had refused to run the commercial . Ads for MyPillow were still running on Fox News as of late Thursday night.

Stephen MaturenTrump-boosting pillow salesman Mike Lindell took a swing at Fox News this week, complaining that the conservative network—which essentially plays his MyPillow commercials on a loop—isn’ t giving him a platform to peddle his baseless voting machine conspiracies. Fox might be “in” on a conspiracy against MAGA heads, Lindell ultimately suggested.The pillow mogul, who has become the face of a dead-end MAGA coalition still trying to overturn President Joe Biden’ s election victory, appeared on far-right pundit Eric Metaxas’ radio show on Monday to discuss his continued

In an interview with Brandon Howse of Worldview Weekend TV, Lindell said he made the decision because Fox News refused to run his commercial for a symposium he said would prove the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump via voter fraud. Officials say there is no evidence to show there was widespread voter fraud.

Lindell said his commercial would not have specifically mentioned his claims of voter fraud, but Fox still declined to air it, reported The Wall Street Journal.

His withdrawal from Fox News is a blow to the network, which counted MyPillow as one of its biggest commercial sponsors.

"It's unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on Fox News given the level of success he's experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network," the network said in a statement to the Journal.

Mike Lindell Claims 'Real Totals' From 2020 Election Are Trump 80M, Biden Below 68M

  Mike Lindell Claims 'Real Totals' From 2020 Election Are Trump 80M, Biden Below 68M Lindell has also said that his "cyber symposium" this month will reveal new evidence of voting machine fraud orchestrated by China. He also said that he has technological experts examining "packet captures" of voting machine data to show exactly when and where election fraud occurred.This evidence, he added, will convince the Supreme Court to vote unanimously to reinstate Trump into office by the fall.Lindell's claims that machines from Dominion Voting Systems flipped votes from Trump to Biden during the 2020 election compelled the company to file a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against him in February.

Trump superfan and pillow -peddling conservative Mike Lindell has launched a new social media platform to coincide with a .6 billion lawsuit he ’ s filing against Dominion Voting Systems, which he blames for Trump’ s election loss. DVS sued both Lindell and his company for .3 billion in February, arguing that any claims Lindell had made against the company, which he accused of committing fraud against then-president Donald Trump during the election , had been made by Lindell speaking on his own behalf rather than as CEO of MyPillow.

Mike Lindell said he ' s hired investigators to find out why Fox News isn' t letting him speak on air . Lindell told Steve Bannon on Friday that several entities are conspiring against him. Fox News and the MyPillow CEO have both been sued by Dominion Voting Systems for defamation. The CEO said he believes that Fox News and their reluctance to speak about the election fraud seem suspicious to him, adding that it is allegedly among several entities involved in a conspiracy against former President Donald Trump. In a video of the interview, posted to social media, Bannon says to Lindell : "I don' t

Lindell said his company spent almost $50 million on Fox News ads last year and dished out $19 million for spots this year, per WSJ.

MyPillow has also been host Tucker Carlson's biggest advertiser after several sponsors, including IHOP and Voya Financial, dropped spots from his show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' in 2018.

"Shame on you, Fox! Go to Frankspeech.com," wrote Lindell on his Facebook page on Friday, with a link to the WSJ report.

Lindell was sued by voting-machine producer Dominion Voting Systems for $1.6 billion this year, and he countersued them afterward. He has been an outspoken supporter of 2020 election fraud theories. Barred from Twitter, he also launched his own social media site and a rival to Amazon.

Fox News did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
