Mike Lindell, founder of My Pillow, and potential Minnesota gubernatorial candidate, under attack for his election fraud opinions
Court rules should favor trials over pre-trial dismissals
Mike Lindell, the founder of My Pillow, a hugely successful, moderately priced pillow manufacturer, has come under attack for his messaging regarding voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election.
More specifically, the left and their obedient media partners have attacked Lindell writing that he has been baselessly promoting the claim of fraud even though courts across the nation have rejected these arguments.
However, the courts have essentially dismissed voter fraud claims on procedural rules, not substance; issues of standing and lack of pre-hearing evidence to substantiate fraud claims led to some suits’ dismissal. In this sense, the issues of fraud have not been tested before a jury.
We have advocated for a loosening of these questionable principles so that hearings and trials can proceed with witnesses testifying before fact-finders (juries or a judge) under penalties of perjury. We cannot say whether the ultimate claim of fraud would be sustained or rejected in these formal proceedings, but the search for truth would be enhanced.
Because the fraud claims have never been fully litigated in the manner described above, we cannot say that Lindell’s claims are baseless. Moreover, he is entitled to his opinion, and as is the far-left, and in the event, he runs for Minnesota Governor, so are the voters.
