Mike Lindell says that Verizon is refusing to help him disseminate election disinformation through his FrankSpeech site’s text messaging service, and he’s not happy about it. It’s also not the first time he’s accused the communications corporation of cutting him off.
According to RawStory, Lindell shared the information during a broadcast on his website, complaining that he’s being limited in how he can share election conspiracy theories (for which he has an entire website).

He’s talking about the mass marketing texts that he sends out through his website to subscribers, and he’s not sharing any details about what reasons Verizon gave him, if any. (We’ve reached out to Verizon and will update if they respond.)
However, it’s notable that Lindell is facing lawsuits for some of the claims he’s made publicly, and that he’s made similar allegations against Verizon before.
As you can see in a clip below, shared by a Twitter user, Lindell was on camera throwing out a conspiracy theory that someone “got to” Verizon and AT&T and convinced them not to let him communicate anymore. This clip was shared on November 1st.

Below are text messages received from Lindell’s FrankSpeech site on November 16th and 17th, advertising his interview with Donald Trump, which was aired the evening of the 16th, on Lindell’s website.
Lindell is still battling to either overturn the 2020 election or convince pillow buyers that it can be done, claiming yet again that he has a case the Supreme Court won’t be able to turn down, despite the complete failure of every election-overturn effort he’s made so far.
