The 115-page lawsuit filed on Monday in Washington, D.C. cited Lindell’s media appearances and social media posts in which he argued Dominion’s election machines were used to rig the 2020 presidential election against former President Donald Trump.
Lindell even released his own documentary about the voting irregularities he said Dominion helped orchestrate.
Dominion argued Lindell “sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillow,” the lawsuit states, referencing promotion discount codes on MyPillow’s websites, including “FightforTrump,” “Proof,” and “QAnon.”
Lindell also “delivered absolute nonsense and fake documents sources from the dark corners of the Internet” when asked for proof, said Dominion legal counsel Megan Meier.
“Despite repeated warnings and efforts to share the facts with him, Mr. Lindell has continued to maliciously spread false claims about Dominion, each time giving empty assurances that he would come forward with overwhelming proof,” Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a statement Monday.
Poulos added that Lindell’s allegations “caused irreparable harm to Dominion’s good reputation and threatened the safety of our employees and customers.”
The lawsuit also names MyPillow as a defendant.
Lindell responded to the lawsuit and said he is “very, very happy” he gets to provide the evidence has compiled in court.
“I have all the evidence on them,” he told the Wall Street Journal. “Now this will get disclosed faster, all the machine fraud and the attack on our country.”
Dominion has also filed lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, and pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell.
Giuliani dismissed Dominion’s lawsuit as an “act of intimidation” meant to “censor the exercise of free speech,” and Powell slammed Dominion’s lawsuit against her as “baseless.”
