KEY POINTS

  • MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said Trump will be back in office by August
  • Lindell plans to file a lawsuit to confirm voter fraud allegations in the 2020 election
  • Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against Lindell in February

Donald Trump will be president again by August, according to a projection made by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. 

The MAGA-supporting pillow maker was on former Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s “War Room: Pandemic” podcast when he made the eyebrow-raising prediction

“Donald Trump will be back in office in August,” Lindell told Bannon

The MyPillow entrepreneur also touted conspiracy theories about widespread voter fraud occurring in the 2020 election and said he planned to file a lawsuit that would confirm the debunked allegations. 

“What I’m talking about Steve is what I’ve been doing since January 9,” Lindell said. “All the evidence I have, 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,” he added. “I don’t know what they’re going to do with it after they pull it down.” 

It is unclear when Lindell will file the lawsuit. It’s also unclear what evidence it may contain. However, the U.S. Justice Department has yet to confirm any claims of interference or fraud in the 2020 presidential election. 

Lindell has been one of Trump’s most vocal supporters since he lost his seat at the Oval Office to President Joe Biden. In February, Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against the MyPillow CEO after he spread false information about rigged voting machines. 

“Today legal representatives for #DominionVotingSystems filed a defamation complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against My Pillow and its CEO, Mike Lindell,” the company announced on Twitter. 

Dominion’s suit, which was filed in a federal court in Washington, D.C., seeks more than $1.3 billion in damages. The complaint also alleges that Lindell ran ads targeting people who believed in conspiracy theories about the election to make a profit. 

During the podcast, the embattled businessman told Bannon that he didn’t understand why Dominion Voting Systems did not allow people to check their machines. 

“A five-year-old can figure out they’re hiding something,” he said.
