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.”

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’
Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.
The Democrats' election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington "gaffe"—accidentally telling the truth. https://t.co/Pn1rdcgHll

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”
New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
