Appearing on Steve Bannon's podcast on Saturday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell launched a fresh attack on Dominion Voting Systems claiming their case against him in a $1.3 billion lawsuit is "coming apart at the seams" -- without providing any details.
According to Insider, Lindell sat down with the former Donald Trump adviser where he claimed to have voting machines that he is investigating in his efforts to prove the company participated in voter fraud to keep Trump from being re-elected.
"I'll give Dominion a little scare this morning," Lindell exclaimed. "We have machines now, I do. We have ES&S [Election Systems & Software] machines, we've got them all."
He then added, "We're going to be putting out so much information over the next couple weeks, and this isn't from Arizona, these are machines we actually have. We're doing all of our own tests, we're going to have a lot of surprises and a lot of great news for the country."
Saying the company is participating in a "big cover-up," he advised employees of the company to come clean.
"If I was working at Dominion right now, I'd be turning myself in. I wouldn't even let it go too much longer. It's over for them," he advised.

According to a report from ABC, Florida is reporting a massive surge in COVID-variant cases that appear to be tied to the massive surge of young people who flooded the beaches during spring break.
With Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) moving quickly to open the state up during the pandemic despite warnings from the CDC, the state is now seeing the after-effects of his decisions with a startlingly large 10,000 variant cases.
According to the report, "A total of 753 variant cases from three strains -- the B.1.1.7, the P.1, and the B. 184.108.40.206. -- were reported on March 14, according to variant infection data shared with ABC News. The Florida Department of Health does not disclose variant cases on its public dashboard," before adding, "That number swelled to 5,177 cases from five types of variants on April 15. Just two weeks later, the number of variant infections exploded to 9,248 on April 27."
According to experts, the timeline suggests spring break, which drew college students and vacationers, is likely the culprit that led to the outbreak.
"Florida is home to the most variant COVID-19 cases in the country. State health officials reported more than 11,800 cases of COVID-19 variants on Wednesday," the report continues. "The Florida Department of Health released the data as a part of a legal settlement with the Orlando Sentinel after the paper sued in March to obtain a county breakdown of variant cases. A judge ended up agreeing with the paper's claim that the data was vital 'to understand how the virus continues to spread and affect Floridians.'"

According to a report from the Guardian, the chairman of a powerful Democratic-led committee is making a renewed push to access Donald Trump's taxes with a plan to not only investigate the former president, but also allow his financial documents to become public.
The Guardian's Hugo Lowell writes that Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), who heads the House Oversight Committee, is pushing forward and asking a federal judge to allow her committee to have the documents that have previously withheld.
According to the report, Maloney's move, "marks the latest salvo from Democrats in their years-long pursuit to secure Trump's tax records and related documents, in a case testing the scope and limits of Congress's oversight authority," with the report adding, "If successful, the committee would be a step closer to obtaining Trump's tax records and potentially making them public."
A filing made to the U.S. district court for the District of Columbia from Douglas Letter, the general counsel for congressional Democrats, reads: "While the committee's need for the subpoenaed information has not changed, one key fact has: plaintiff Donald J Trump is no longer the president."
"Because he is no longer the incumbent, the constitutional separation-of-powers principles that were the foundation of the supreme court's recent decision are significantly diminished," Letter added.
According to the Guardian's Lowell, "Prosecutors with the Manhattan district attorney's office in New York obtained the former president's tax records in March, just hours after the supreme court denied his last-ditch attempt to keep them concealed. But, as they are part of a law enforcement investigation, they have not so far been released."
Last summer the Supreme Court blocked access to the documents on separation of powers ground but now, with Trump out of office, Democrats claim circumstances have changed and they should be granted their request.
"If the committee is ultimately successful, it could pave the way for Trump's tax returns to one day become public, since Congress is not restricted by grand jury secrecy rules that bar the Manhattan district attorney's office from releasing the documents except as evidence at a trial," the Guardian report adds.
