One of former President Donald Trump’s fiercest defenders has gone public with a bold new allegation about November’s disputed presidential election results.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell claims to have “irrefutable evidence” that hackers in China switched votes from Trump to Democratic nominee Joe Biden during the election.
“The greatest uniting of our country ever”
He signaled that the evidence would be made public during a three-day cyber symposium, which began on Tuesday.
Lindell asserts that he is so confident in his evidence that he believes it will prompt a legal battle ending with U.S. Supreme Court justices overturning the election entirely.
During an interview with the Washington Times, Lindell said: “Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, this will be the greatest uniting of our country ever. Because this isn’t about politics. This is about free and fair elections and about the 2020 [election]. And you’ve got to get that righted.”
A number of Republicans have been chasing evidence to support allegations that the election was stolen from Trump. It remains to be seen whether Lindell has actually succeeded.
For his part, he has spent millions of dollars on investigations into reports of shady practices and fraud in critical swing states. The ongoing symposium is expected to draw attendees including elected officials from across the U.S.
“Hacked into by China”
To further back up his claims, Lindell is offering $5 million to anyone who can disprove the evidence he plans to present.
“I believe that because everyone in the world is going to be curious and to see this,” he said. “And they’re going to be talking, going, ‘You got to see this. This is real. The United States was, their election was taken, hacked into by China.'”
If Lindell presents evidence that China helped Biden steal the election against Trump, it would immediately become a scandal of historic proportions.
Isolated allegations of voter fraud have surfaced in the months since the election, but claims like those being teased ahead of this week’s symposium would be a game-changer for Trump and his allies. As Lindell has acknowledged, however, his mission has not come without a personal cost.
“Even if I went down and lost everything and was penniless in the street, it wouldn’t matter,” he said. “This is it. It doesn’t matter about the money.”
