On Monday, while unveiling his new social media platform, “Frank Speech,” MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced that he is suing Dominion Voting Systems for a staggering $1.6 billion, claiming the company has engaged in cancel culture and impeded his First Amendment rights.
“MyPillow just sued Dominion for $1.6 billion. This is all about the First Amendment rights to free speech, what they have done to our country,” said Lindell during an interview with RightSide Broadcasting Network.
“This isn’t about the money. This is about our First Amendment,” he added.
Lawyer Alan Dershowitz agreed, saying that Dominion “acted as the government due to the power the feds extended to the voting company, but now Dominion is suppressing the viewpoints of critics.”
“We don’t suppress. We don’t censor, but that is what Dominion is trying to do on behalf of the government,” said Mr. Dershowitz, who is advising Mr. Lindell and his legal team. “We are going to be demanding access to their machines, to their codes.”
Dominion previously launched a defamation lawsuit against Mike Lindell for speaking out against their machines allegedly switching votes.
Lindell’s suit against Dominion, which was filed in federal court in Minnesota, argues that the voting machine giant has engaged in “lawfare” by suing to silence critics who question the validity of their voting machines.
“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,” the lawsuit, 51 pages in length, read. “Dominion is using the legal process as a weapon to suppress free speech.”
