Dominion Sends Cease-And-Desist Letter to My Pillow Guy
My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has gotten himself into trouble over his spread of misinformation related to the 2020 election. Along with Donald Trump and several of his allies, Lindell has pushed false conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems and its part in the presidential election, falsely accusing the company of tampering with votes to favor Joe Biden, among other conspiracies. On Monday, Dominion sent a cease and desist letter to Lindell under threat of a lawsuit if he does not comply.
Dominion had already begun to take legal action. The company has already filed suit against pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell for defamation and $1.3 billion in damages, and a Dominion employee has also sued Trump himself, OANN, and Newsmax.
The letter to Lindell orders him to “preserve and retain all documents relating to Dominion and your smear campaign against the company.” Lindell also must preserve all communications with any member of the Trump campaign, in addition to communications with Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and Lin Wood.
Lindell refutes Dominion’s accusations, claiming he has “100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election.” Lindell met with Trump last week and was caught by photographers with notes referencing martial law and Sidney Powell.

No evidence of any vote tampering has been proven, and the 2020 Presidential election has been certified for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who will be sworn into office on Wednesday.
