• The MyPillow CEO spent money to hire lawyers for himself and other Trump allies
  • Lindell also funded a network of groups "focused on election integrity"
  • He said he would continue to spend until the 2022 midterm elections

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has revealed that he spent millions of dollars to continue promoting conspiracy theories claiming former president Donald Trump won the November 2020 elections.

During a nearly hour-long interview with CNBC on Wednesday, Lindell said he spent $25 million to fuel Trump’s claim that the presidential election was stolen from him. He also said he plans to continue spending his own money going into the midterm elections in 2022.

"I will keep spending it because there is no tomorrow. We lose our country. We either only have two paths: either it gets changed before the 2022 election or we lose our country forever. I will spend whatever it takes," Lindell told CNBC.

Lindell, who has a net worth of approximately $50 million, said he spent $500,000 to pay for lawyers representing him in lawsuits he filed against Dominion Voting Systems and a countersuit that the company filed against him.

The MyPillow CEO also said he spent money to hire lawyers to help other Trump allies, including Colorado county clerk Tina Peters who questioned the integrity of the 2020 elections in Mesa county. Lindell did not name the lawyers and investigators he hired to help with the case.

Lindell said he also spent money toward a network of groups, called Cause of America, that support his stance on the 2020 elections. The group promotes itself as a nonpartisan nonprofit organization “focused on election integrity.”

During the interview, the MyPillow CEO also touted another election conspiracy theory, saying he believes China interfered with the election. This claim has been dismissed by a government report declassified by the Director of National Intelligence earlier this year.

The MyPillow CEO’s comments come after it was revealed that Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., joined Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows, campaign manager Bill Stepien, close advisor Stephen Miller and press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in a meeting where they discussed steps to overturn the 2020 election results.

The group had met at Trump’s campaign office in Arlington, Virginia, where Perry revealed a compilation of voter fraud allegations that they would have Justice Department lawyer Jeffrey Clark vet, according to a Thursday report by The New York Times.

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, met with Trump and Meadows following the November election to discuss steps to overturn the elections. He also unsuccessfully sued then-Vice President Mike Pence for refusing to interfere with the election certification.
