MyPillow CEO and staunch Donald Trump supporter Mike Lindell appeared on the YouTube channel “The Revival Channel” to announce that he’s releasing a three-hour film on Friday in support of his baseless claims of fraud in the 2020 election.
“Absolute Proof” was made, he said, over a five-day period “holed up with people guarding me and people from…all over this country.”
Speaking from a drab room with a fake screen of trees behind him, in a location he refused to disclose, Lindell said the documentary proved “100%, the theft by China and these different international locations, this cyberattack on our nation right here, that took, that flipped votes.”
Both former Attorney General Bill Barr and former Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf have said there was no indication of widespread election fraud.
“There are no indications that a foreign actor has succeeded in compromising or affecting the actual votes cast in this election,” Wolf said in a November 3 press conference.
Lindell said his film will prove there was “a Communist coup.”
“We prayed over every word that was in this piece,” he told the Revival Channel’s host. “The last four days, 12 people, three hours of sleep a night, A lot of stuff was done in one take because the Holy Spirit was just speaking it out.”
This is not Lindell’s first foray into film. He’s served as a producer on several conservative films, including 2019’s “Unplanned,” and in 2016 was the subject of the documentary “The Mike Lindell Story: An American Dream.”
Lindell is among several Trump surrogates and supporters who were threatened with litigation by Dominion Voting Systems after repeatedly making baseless claims about election fraud involving their machines.
Lindell appeared on conservative cable channel Newsmax earlier this week, ostensibly to talk about “cancel culture” but instead revived his claims of election interference. Anchor Bob Sellers grew visibly irritated when Lindell instead began rattling off his Dominion Voting Systems election fraud claims and cut in to remind viewers that Lindell’s claims were unsubstantiated. Sellers then appeared to walk off set in frustration.
Last month, Lindell was permanently banned from Twitter for repeatedly making baseless election fraud claims that Twitter said violated its user policy.
News of the documentary came as Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor and progressive activist David Hogg announced he would be launching a rival pillow company “to put MyPillow out of business.”
