MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Thursday admitted he and his company have no money to pay the lawyers representing him in the 2020 election-related defamation cases after they notified federal judges that Lindell owed them millions of dollars in legal fees.
Appearing on Steve Bannon’s War Room, Lindell said he was aware that “all the lawyers” representing him in the defamation suits filed by voting machine companies Dominion and Smartmatic made a filing to “drop us as our attorneys.”
The MyPillow CEO said the “attacks” on his company—including American Express’ decision to slash its credit line—means “there’s no money left over to pay” the lawyers.
When asked by Bannon if he would settle with Dominion and Smartmatic, Lindell said he would “never settle anything” and “never stop fighting no matter” as he reiterated baseless conspiracy theories about the companies’ voting machines.
When Bannon noted that even the Murdoch family and Fox News had settled, the MyPillow CEO suggested they were likely “in on it” and “they can come after me too, I don’t care.”
Lindell then went on a rant about Fox News not talking about “any election platforms” and being silent on “machines or vaccines,” adding: “They’re like a weather channel…where you can’t report hurricanes or tornadoes.”
