Mike Lindell’s election fraud case fails to reach Supreme Court over incomplete paperwork

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has worked tirelessly to convince anyone who will listen that widespread voter fraud occurred in the 2020 election, just experienced a setback in his quest to take his case to the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court.

According to the Washington Examiner, Lindell, who had long advertised that his election fraud case would be entered into the high court by Thanksgiving, apparently will not have that chance due to not being able to convince any Republican attorneys general to essentially cosign the legal paperwork.  

Lindell was quick to defend his case and the unfortunate result this week, and went as far as blaming the Republican National Committee (RNC) for running interference and “pressuring” AGs across the country to refrain from signing on to back his case.

“We believe that they have reached out to multiple [attorneys general] and put pressure on them, not to sign the Supreme Court complaint,” Lindell said in his accusation against the RNC.

Lindell’s hope

The successful pillow tycoon has spent considerable time and resources insisting that former President Donald Trump will be somehow reinstated to the White House after he proves that election fraud — particularly concerning issues he believes were a result of rigged voting machines — robbed the former president of a second term.

Like others before him who attempted to convince the courts — and the public — that Trump could be reinstated with the right legal maneuvers, Lindell, so far, has failed to gain any traction on that front.

On many occasions, Lindell has even revealed dates that he believed the 45th president would take back the White House, though in every instance, including the latest, the dates are curiously pushed back.

While he was seen as a close Trump ally early on, the former president has seemingly distanced himself from Lindell, and others like Sidney Powell and Lin Wood, who all pushed the theory that the election was rigged on a nationwide scale in President Joe Biden’s favor.

“Incredibly dumb”

While Lindell deserves credit for his persistence, his legal arguments have been thoroughly ripped apart by attorneys across the country, especially in his latest attempt to take his case to SCOTUS for a ruling.

Appellate attorney Raffi Melkonian took to Twitter on Tuesday, calling Lindell’s latest attempt “incredibly dumb,” at least in a legal sense.

“This whole thing is incredibly dumb, of course — I’ve skimmed it, heavens knows why — but it’s not much dumber than the actual lawsuit real Attorneys General filed in January. Which is not a defense of this, to be clear,” he tweeted.
