Mike Lindell Says Trump 'Will Be Back in Office in August' Thanks to His Voter Fraud Lawsuit

Mike Lindell, the staunchly pro-Trump CEO of MyPillow, insisted in a recent interview that former President Donald Trump will be back in the White House by August.

Like Trump, Lindell continues to promote the baseless conspiracy theory that President Joe Biden and the Democrats "stole" or "rigged" the 2020 election. Despite dozens of election lawsuits filed by Trump and his supporters in state and federal court, no evidence of widespread fraud has been brought forward to corroborate this extraordinary claim. But in Friday comments on the War Room: Pandemic podcast, which is hosted by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, Lindell claimed he has been collecting evidence that will soon be brought before the Supreme Court.

"What I'm talking about Steve is what I have been doing since January 9th. All of the evidence I have, everything that is going to go before the Supreme Court and the election of 2020 is going bye-bye," Lindell claimed. "It was an attack by another country—communism coming in. I don't know what they're going to do with it after they pull it down but it's going down."

"Donald Trump will be back in office in August," the pro-Trump businessman said, waving his finger at the video camera.

Lindell and other Trump loyalists have claimed since November that they have some elusive evidence of massive voter fraud in the 2020 election. These claims have been rejected in dozens of legal challenges across the country, with judges appointed by Trump and other Republicans pointing out that they lacked merit. Former Attorney General William Barr, who was widely viewed as one of Trump's most loyal and effective Cabinet members, said in early December that there was "no evidence" of fraud that would change the election's outcome.

Furthermore the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security, which was led by a Trump appointee, said in November that the 2020 election was the "most secure in American history." The agency added that, "there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."

In February, Dominion Voting Systems—a company that Lindell has claimed helped rig the election—sued the MyPillow CEO for $1.3 billion in a defamation lawsuit. Notably, Dominion also sued pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell, who filed a number of groundless and often bizarre election challenges. In a court filing, Powell's attorneys have argued that "reasonable people" would not believe her claims.

"Reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact but view them only as claims that await testing by the courts through the adversary process," Powell's attorneys wrote in a recent court filing.

Newsweek reached out to Lindell for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
