Mike Lindell says that if you are a “cyber guy” and you show up to his upcoming symposium, where he plans to reveal real proof that there was widespread election fraud (if you’re suffering deja vu right now, don’t worry, it’s not you — he’s done this a few times now) and you look at his data and prove that it’s not valid and doesn’t actually show election fraud, he’ll give you $5 million. However, the page on his website outlining the details shows the catch.
Below, see a video in which Lindell appears on the War Room podcast and says that he’s offering $5 million to any “cyber guy” who shows up at his symposium and demonstrates that the data doesn’t actually prove Donald Trump won the election. He says that there are details still to be hammered out, but that a page at Frank Speech has the current information on the offer.

Of course there’s a catch. After all, Lindell hasn’t yet produced any evidence of election fraud, despite repeated promises to do so. If the information he plans to reveal as “evidence” next month is on the same level, anyone with a little knowledge of technology and voting information could score an easy $5 million. So, what’s the catch?
The symposium isn’t open to the public.
That’s right. The image below is the flier posted on FrankSpeech.
It advertises the Cyber Symposium, livestreamed for 72 hours, and declared the challenge.
$5,000,000 will be offered to any attendee who can prove that this cyber data is not valid data from the 2020 election.
The symposium is not open to the public.
Invitees include current Politicians, Cyber Experts, and the Media.
Notably, Lindell does not name exactly which politicians, media entities, or cyber experts have been invited.
You may also notice the second catch — the shifted goalpost. On this flier, Lindell isn’t offering the reward for, as implied, proving that the data doesn’t show election fraud, but for proving that whatever data he produces “is not valid data from the 2020 election” — which isn’t the same thing at all.
