Crackpot Millionaire Mike Lindell Told To Take Banking Business Elsewhere For Pushing Trump Conspiracy Theories
The banks see Lindell as a risk to them. Multiple companies are suing Lindell for billions of dollars for defamation.
Bank executives also don’t like his wacky claims about the 2020 presidential election.
They are also afraid of the cost of dealing with Congress over Lindell’s congressional subpoena. Congress wants to know about his involvement in Trump’s January 6, 2021 attempted coup d’etat.
Lindell is a key promoter of Donald Trump’s conspiracy theory that the last presidential election was “rigged.” Lindell alleges the election was stolen from Trump in favor of President Joe Biden. However, Lindell’s allegations have never been substantiated by evidence. Election experts and cybersecurity professionals have consistently debunked both Trump and Lindell’s claims.

The MyPillow founder is also facing a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems. Dominion is suing him for his repeated claims that the company helped steal the election for Biden. Dominion cites significant harm to its reputation as a result of his public misinformation campaign involving the company. A Trump-appointed federal court judge Carl J. Nichols already rejected a motion from Lindell to dismiss the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, Lindell continues to travel the country. He speaks at pro-Trump events promoting election conspiracy theories. Lindell pounds the podium like Adolf Hitler desepartely trying to convince people his conspiracy theories about the 2020 election are true. However, he offers no evidence.

Even 10 judges appointed by the former president ruled against the legal challenges.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency at the Department of Homeland Security described the last presidential election as the “most secure in American history.
