Working under the cloud of a $1.3 billion lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems due to false claims he made about the company participating in election fraud, MyPillow founder Mike Lindell is continuing his crusade on behalf of Donald Trump and announced on Thursday he has a new election lawsuit he hopes to get before the Supreme Court.
As reported by Right Wing Watch, the embattled business owner, who has seen his company take a massive financial hit due to boycotts over pushing Trump's "Big Lie," is paying for both a lawsuit and accompanying documentary -- his second -- to make the case that the 2020 election was tainted by fraud.
In an interview with the Victory Channel's "Flashpoint" program, Lindell promised, "There are great things coming."
"Within the next 10 days or so, there's going to be a platform I'm putting out that's going to be the focal point where everyone can go out and there's they can't stop [us, like they do on] YouTube and all this stuff. What we're gonna do, we're gonna put out evidence every single day, more and more. The stuff that's going on right now, you guys cannot believe it," he excitedly explained.
"As we build this up, and all this other evidence is showing, I'm going to come out with another documentary showing all the foreign interference," he added. "Everybody's gonna know about this, in spite of the media. We're bringing it up, we got the case, it's almost ready, and when we bring it in five, six weeks before the Supreme Court; now let me tell you, by the time it gets there, everyone's gonna see, everyone's gonna know it, including all nine of them justices."
"This time they'll have already seen the evidence, they're gonna have to accept this," he elaborated. "And I'm telling you, it's going to be a 9-0 vote going, 'Wow, this was an attack on our country by foreign actors and domestic.' And I don't know what they do after that—I've said that in my movie—but I will tell you this: They will do something. They have to."

The coronavirus pandemic has wiped out millions of jobs in the United States, but it's had the unexpected effect of increasing savings rates among Americans, especially wealthy people stuck at home and forced to give up travel and entertainment.
Along with the dramatic reduction in leisure spending, things like government stimulus checks, unemployment benefits and the suspension of monthly loan repayments for more modest earners have swelled the bank accounts of Americans who are usually known to be crumbling under debt.
