The CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, disclosed that he had a commitment from the Republican National Committee (RNC) to lead an “election crime team” in the 2024 elections.
Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast on Monday morning after receiving only four votes for RNC chair.
“I’ll have a plan where all of you can get involved going forward,” Lindell said. “And I’m going to be going to states, Steve. I’m not missing a beat. Starting this week, I’m going to be flying into at least three states.”
“We need to hold the RNC accountable,” he continued. “They did say, ‘I will work with Mike Lindell; I can’t wait to work with Mike Lindell.’ Well, when you work with me, it’s election crime, not a weak word like election integrity. It’s called the election crime.”
Added Lindell “We’re establishing the election crime unit later this week, Steve. So please pay attention. There will be a tremendous event.”
The pillow businessman also lamented how the media made fun of him for winning four votes for RNC chair.
“Rasmussen polls came out on Thursday, everybody, last Thursday!” he recalled. “And it had me almost doubling both [Ronna McDaniel] and [Harmeet Dhillon]. So, what does that say? It says the people want not only change, but what do I represent in that change?”
“And, Steve, the media, they didn’t know what to do with that,” Lindell remarked. “They go, ‘Oh, Mike only got four votes.’ Well, the people that voted me in, you know, they decided to go against the people’s wishes. What our country wanted, they decided to vote the other way.”
Lindell made headlines earlier this month when he accused the RNC chair of laundering money.
Lindell claiming to have conducted “research” into the Republican Party’s finances and to have detected money laundering was shared online by attorney and activist Ron Filipkowski. Lindell is the same person that believes Donald Trump won the 2020 election, and every few months he claims to have the proof the election was rigged only to fall short once more. Lindell invested $25 million in 2021 to promote his conspiracies. Dominion Voting Systems has filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against him for allegedly distributing untrue information about the business.
“There are so many problems, Steve. I’ve spent the last three weeks doing due diligence within the RNC,” Lindell says. “Just the money itself that it costs. Forty cents for every dollar that you go out and get from big donors goes to these things, one of them’s called ‘Data Trust.’ To me, it’s like a big money laundering operation. Don’t quote me on that, we’re still digging.”
“This is disgusting. The wasted, frivolous money that goes down the drain. The big donors, deserve better. We deserve some return on our investment. I used to give a lot of money to the RNC. I won’t do it and neither will the big donors in its current condition, and it needs new leadership,” he also said.
