Mike Lindell Files 2nd Lawsuit Against Dominion And Smartmatic
Posted On June 4, 2021
From Conservative Brief:
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is not sitting on his hands as he is being sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 billion dollars.
The CEO has filed another federal lawsuit against Dominion and another voting machines company after filing his first lawsuit against Dominion in April for $1.6 billion, Business Insider reported.
In the latest lawsuit, filed in federal court in Minnesota, Lindell accuses Dominion and another company, Smartmatic, of “weaponizing the litigation process to silence political dissent and suppress evidence showing voting machines were manipulated to affect outcomes in the November 2020 general election.
The lawsuit also features quotes from famous dystopian novels and the English playwright William Shakespeare.
One of the included quotes is attributed to Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”: “But you can’t make people listen. They have to come round in their own time, wondering what happened and why the world blew up around them. It can’t last.”
Another quote is from George Orwell’s “1984”: “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth.”
“Lindell will prove that the Dominion Defendants, acting in concert and as part of an unlawful enterprise alongside the Smartmatic Defendants, have weaponized the court system and the litigation process in an attempt to silence Lindell’s and others’ political speech about election fraud and the role of electronic voting machines in it,” the lawsuit said. “In the specific context of political speech about something as vital to a republican form of government as election integrity, no litigant should be permitted to use the courts and the litigation process as a bludgeon to suppress and stifle dissent.”
In his first lawsuit against Dominion he also accused the company of using the courts to silence debate about the 2020 presidential election.
“Dominion’s purpose is to silence debate; to eliminate any challenge to the 2020 presidential election; and to cancel and destroy anyone who speaks out against Dominion’s work on behalf of the government in administering the election,” it said.
The lawsuit compared Dominion’s “scorched earth campaign” to McCarthy era, when people who were believed to be communists have their livelihoods taken from them.
“So too today, those who, like MyPillow are merely associated with a critic of Dominion and the integrity of the 2020 election, face expulsion from public life in large parts of America,” it said. “Dominion is using today’s cancel culture to eliminate dissent and to cover up the election issues that compromised the 2020 result.”
