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.”

Special Counsel continues to beg Judge Chutkan to ‘muzzle Donald Trump’
Special counsel Jack Smith continues to ask U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan to silence former President Donald Trump by any means necessary ahead of an October 16 hearing on a proposed gag order.
Smith’s original request was unsealed last week, prompting Trump to respond on social media platforms and interview, which Smith’s office says bolsters their case to place a gag order on Trump.
In a 22-page filing, senior assistant special counsel Molly Gaston said prosecutors rejected Trump’s claims that their proposed gag order was an attempt to silence him on the campaign trail. Rather, she said, it was an effort to prevent him from trying to make “use of his candidacy as a cover for making prejudicial public statements about this case.”

“[T]here is no legitimate need for the defendant, in the course of his campaign, to attack known witnesses regarding the substance of their anticipated testimony,” Gaston wrote.
“[N]o other criminal defendant would be permitted to issue public statements insinuating that a known witness in his case should be executed,” Gaston wrote. “This defendant should not be, either.”
