On Friday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell did an interview with Real America’s Voice and claimed he had hired private investigators to review “everything” to do with election fraud, including “bots and trolls” as well as Fox News.
Lindell is still pursuing election fraud claims following the 2020 presidential election. He has had a number of clashes with the media concerning his allegations. A Newsmax anchor walked out of an interview with Lindell after he brought up Dominion Voting Machines. Dominion is currently suing Lindell for defamation and media outlets are distancing themselves fearing the legal fallout.
On Friday’s “War Room: Pandemic” show, Lindell discussed the lawsuit and the launch of his new social media platform with host Steve Bannon.
Bannon raised the issue of the Murdochs who own Fox News and the fact that, although MyPillow’s ads are running on the network, Lindell has not been invited on-air: “I don’t remember seeing you on Fox recently.”

“Why are the Murdochs afraid of Dominion?” Bannon asked Lindell. “Why is Mike Lindell not on Fox and why do they seem to say, hey, when Dominion says something we’re just gonna shut up about it and talk about Biden’s tax bill?”
“You know, I’m gonna have those answers soon, ’cause I’ve hired private investigators and I’ve spent a lot of money on them to investigate everything,” Lindell declared.
“The bots and trolls, who’s behind them? Why is Facebook involved, Wikipedia involved? And then the big question: why isn’t Fox having people on? Why isn’t Fox on there talking about Dominion and Smartmatic and the election fraud?” he wondered.
Lindell has previously alleged that Fox News is “in on it,” allegedly referring to covering up voter fraud in connection to the presidential election.
“Here’s things that don’t make sense, everybody: let’s just talk about Fox,” said Lindell on “The Eric Metaxas Radio Show” in March. “You’re already sued. It’s too late to close the gate, the cows are out of the barn. Why can’t people go on there and say their free speech, then? You’re already sued, Fox, what do you have? What, are you going to get double sued?”
“What’s the matter with you?” he asked. “What, are they in on it? I don’t get it.”
“All the evidence I have,” Lindell also stated in March, “everything is going to go before the Supreme Court and the election of 2020 is going bye-bye.”
“It was an attack by other countries, communism coming in, I don’t know what they’re going to do after they pull it down but –” Lindell stated.
“Donald Trump will be back in office in August,” he declared.
Lindell has also said there are multiple investigations being conducted against those he believes have targeted him and/or are involved in alleged election fraud. He vowed last month that Facebook and Twitter CEOs Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey would be “going to jail” for “criminal activity.”
Smartmatic has filed a $2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox News for allegedly spreading election misinformation following the presidential election. Dominion is suing both Fox News and Lindell as well, and they are seeking $1.6 billion and $1.3 billion, from each of them respectively.
