Dominion sends cease and desist letter to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and threatens defamation suit

Dominion Voting Systems has sent a cease and desist letter to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, threatening ‘imminent’ legal action over his baseless claims of widespread voting fraud involving their machines.

Citing Lindell to be a ‘prominent leader of the ongoing misinformation campaign’, Dominion warned the businessman they plan to sue him for defamation for peddling false claims their machines were ‘rigged’ to favor Joe Biden over Trump in the 2020 election.

‘Despite knowing your implausible attacks against Dominion have no basis in reality, you have participated in the vast and concerted misinformation campaign to slander Dominion’, the company wrote. ‘Litigation regarding these issues is imminent.’ 

Lindell has been ordered to cease and desist making defamatory claims against Dominion, and to ‘preserve and retain all documents relating to Dominion and your smear campaign against the company.’

Trump and several of his allies have pushed false conspiracy theories about the company since the election’s conclusion, leading Dominion to take legal action.

Dominion has also sent cease and desist letters to others, including Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, both of whom are staunch Trump allies who have often pushed conspiracy theories about the integrity of the company’s voting machines.

Powell has been sued by Dominion for defamation, with the company seeking $1.3 billion in damages.

Dominion alleges that Powell acted ‘in concert with allies and media outlets determined to promote a false preconceived narrative about the 2020 election—caused unprecedented harm.

‘As a result of the defamatory falsehoods peddled by Powell … Dominion’s founder, Dominion’s employees, Georgia’s governor, and Georgia’s secretary of state have been harassed and have received death threats, and Dominion has suffered enormous harm,’ the suit filed January 8th reads.

Separately, a Dominion employee has sued President Trump himself, in addition to the right-wing news platforms OANN and Newsmax, insisting their unfounded claims of election fraud have resulted in poll workers receiving death threats.

Lindell, meanwhile, met with Trump briefly at the White House on Friday and was caught by photographers holding notes which reference martial law and Sidney Powell. 

The CEO later confirmed to CNN that he had met with the outgoing president for around five minutes, and said he had tried to hand him what he described as ‘evidence’ of voter fraud.

When pressed on what the apparent evidence pertained to show, Lindell failed to substantiate any of his claims and instead just regurgitated the same baseless conspiracy theories spouted by Trump since the 2020 election concluded.

Trump appeared ‘disinterested’ in his notes, officials said, with the president quickly dismissing him and sending him to the White House Counsel’s office.

When asked by CNN whether he believes Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election, Lindell – a former crack addict turned pillow extraordinaire – said no.

‘No, he didn’t win the election, because I’ve seen it,’ Lindell responded.

Apparently undeterred by Trump’s rejection late last week, Lindell said Friday it’s his ‘hope’ that the president stages a military coup to stop Biden taking over the reins of power.

At least 25,000 National Guardsmen have been deployed to secure the Capitol for Inauguration Day on January 20, as the government braces for further unrest and protests in the wake of the January 6 riot.

‘I don’t understand it. There’s like three people and every other person is a military guy,’ Lindell told Right Side Broadcasting on the heightened security, which includes troops, non-scalable fences, and barricades.

‘If it is all theatrics…I don’t know. We’ve all had our prayers going “Gee maybe somethings gonna be done that this president is willing to say hey we’ve been attacked by another country cause we have. Our country’s been under attack for a long time,”‘ he said.

He hinted that Trump could use the military presence for his own advantage, but the National Guard was brought in for the safety of the Inauguration.

In the interview he also spoke about his meeting with Trump where he presented what he claims to be new evidence pointing to a stolen election.

‘You know I’ve been looking down every hole for election fraud since November 4th and about eight or nine days ago this proof came out. 100 percent footprints from the machines of the machine fraud,’ Lindell said in the interview.

‘I wanted to get it to the president. This is it. This shows that Joe Biden lost: 79 million for Donald Trump and 68 million for Joe Biden.’
