Disgraced MyPillow Chief Executive Officer and conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell claimed on Wednesday’s edition of The Jim Bakker Show that he was forced to release his Absolute Proof “documentary” about President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was stolen because he feared that the federal government was going to kill him.
“Why did the media respond to your documentary the way they did? They buried it,” remarked host Jim Bakker, who is himself no stranger to getting busted for fraud.
“Yeah yeah. The Absolute Proof – let me tell you the key part of that. That’s probably the only time I had a little fear and I had to pray, get on my knees, and pray to God – this was ten days before the impeachment trial,” recalled Lindell, who then launched into a disjointed rant about how important he thinks he is.
“And let me tell ya, ten days before – and remember at the time it was like toward the end of January – ya know the impeachment trials were like Tuesday following like February 8th, okay? And this was about maybe January 25th or so, I’m sitting there going, ‘wow, they’re going to impeach him,’ and I had worried that they were going to impeach him, we were not going to be able to show evidence at that trial,” Lindell said.
Trump was impeached for inciting the insurrection at the United States Capitol on January 6th, however, Lindell did not have any evidence that would have aided in Trump’s defense – not that it ultimately mattered because Senate Republicans acquitted him.
“They would not have shown it on TV. And they impeach him now and what were they gonna do? Take everyone from January 6th and this big, fake insurgency or whatever that you’re against the government, and guess who was number one on that list to come and get? Me,” said Lindell.
He has not been charged with a crime, but he is facing multiple civil lawsuits for defaming the companies that supplied voting machines in states that Trump falsely insists that he won.
“And they were coming, and I’m going, ‘God, they’re going to kill me,’ ya know? I mean they’re gonna put me and hang me, ya know, basically is what I’m thinking and at that moment he said, ya know, ‘I got to put on a documentary. Just put the evidence out there and make it,” Lindell added.
