Voting company Smartmatic is suing Mike Lindell, alleging he lied about the election to sell pillows

| Breaking News Updates | Today Headlines

Voting machine company Smartmatic has filed a scathing libel suit against Donald Trump ally and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, alleging he concocted lies about a rigged presidential election to sell its products.

“Crazy as a fox. Mike Lindell knows exactly what he’s doing, and it’s dangerous,” Smartmatic said in his lawsuit, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Minnesota.

The lawsuit, which also names the MyPillow company as a defendant, also alleges deceptive marketing practices and seeks unspecified damages. Additionally, the lawsuit demands that Lindell retract its statements that Smartmatic transferred votes from President Trump to his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

“He knows that the voting machines did not transfer votes from former President Trump to current President Biden,” the lawsuit states. But “the facts don’t matter to Mr. Lindell,” he adds.

He accuses her of taking advantage of a ‘unique opportunity’ to make money by pushing allegations of voter fraud.

“Mr. Lindell has intentionally fanned the fires of xenophobia and party division for the noble purpose of selling his pillows,” the suit reads, noting that the MyPillow name is inevitably placed “conveniently” and “strategically” during appearances. Lindell media.

Lindell told Business Insider he welcomes the lawsuit because Smartmatic is “guilty” of vote manipulation and “they’re all going to jail.” (He also said earlier this month that he had the evidence to put at least 300 million Americans – somehow linked to what he claims was a fraudulent election – “in life in prison”. Only 155 million Americans voted for the president in the 2020 election.)

He said it was “kinda hilarious” that the lawsuit claimed his attacks were profitable because he said he lost more than $80 million after “big box stores, retailers and chains of purchase” dropped him in the middle of his controversial campaign.

Lindell peppered a four-day election symposium late last year with countless plugs for his pillows.

There is no evidence of any notable fraud involving Smartmatic’s machines, which were used in Los Angeles County in the 2020 election.

Dominion Vote Systems also sued Lindell last year for $1.3 billion in damages for the “enormous harm” it created with its “viral disinformation campaign” about the presidential election.

That lawsuit also claimed that Lindell knew his company “could derive … financial benefit from making … false statements” accusing Dominion of “fraud, election rigging and conspiracy, which are serious crimes.”
