Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow whose sustained claims of 2020 election fraud have resulted in a mammoth defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems, is suing the voting machine purveyor in turn for what he claims has been a "weaponiz[ation] of the legal process."

In the lawsuit, filed this week in a Minnesota district court, Lindell claims Dominion has "weaponized the legal process and intimidated witnesses to election fraud by suing or threatening to sue over 150 private individuals or organizations, including dozens of citizen volunteer poll watchers, with baseless defamation lawsuits or 'cease and desist' letters."

Lindell claims that Dominion's lawsuits are part of an effort to "cover up gross security flaws in their electronic voting systems—and information showing cyber attacks and hacking in the November 2020 election—by uniting in a common purpose to use the litigation process to attempt to suppress the revelation and public discussion of these truths."

"Dominion intends for its media blitz to inflict a crippling fear of becoming the next target for destruction if one dares to raise any question about the use and integrity of voting machines during elections," Lindell argues further. 

The American businessman is seeking unspecified amounts in damages from the voting company. He is currently being sued by Dominion for $1.3 billion.
