Investigative reporter for CNN Drew Griffin grilled MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Thursday on his theories surrounding the 2020 presidential election. But, ultimately Griffin found that Lindell only has theories and no proof.

First, Lindell showed the reporter screenshots he’d grabbed of voter metadata. “These images are just publicly available voter data scrolling across the screen, not proof of election hacking,” Griffin said. Then, Griffin passed them on to two dozen different cyber security experts, who reported they’re “proof of nothing.” Instead, the experts found they were “extremely rudimentary metadata” and “completely ridiculous.”

In response, Lindell disputed the experts. “He’s wrong,” Lindell said. “Well, then, you didn’t hire a cybersecurity expert.”


Another talking point of the MyPillow CEO has been the 15 counties where he guarantees there’s been cyber fraud. They’re mostly in the midwest and one in Arizona but both Republican and Democrat districts. When CNN followed up with the election officials of each county, each official confirmed that those counties only used paper ballots. No cyber crime could have disrupted their results, they told CNN.

When Griffin said he’d followed up with all the counties, all Lindell could say was “Good for you.” He shrugged at the reporter’s update.

Now, Lindell is straying from the pack of election county officials, judges and even former Attorney General Bill Barr, and sticks to his theories.

In the end, after raising his voice and talking over the reporter, he offered him a hug. Griffin told him he was worried Lindell “could possibly be the victim of a scam.”

“We should give a hug,” Lindell laughed. “Are you worried about me? You’re worried about ol’ Mike? God bless you.”

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
