Loser Mike Lindell Loses In Court (Again)

Things have not been going particularly well for Mr. Mike Lindell. The founder of Fox News’ top advertiser, MyPillow, is embroiled in a billion-dollar defamation lawsuit brought against him by Dominion Voting Systems. The election voting tabulation system has a seemingly solid case against Lindell, who has repeatedly claimed the systems were hacked by everyone from the ghost of Huge Chavez to secret “deep state” actors.

On Tuesday, Mr. Lindell took another check in the loss column when U.S. Magistrate Judge Phillip Green ended Lindell’s attempt to subpoena Kent County, Michigan, election records. During his ruling on this motion, Judge Green said, “It is eminently demonstrated that the breadth of the subpoena could not be greater.” He then ordered Lindell to cover the county’s legal costs in fighting what Kent County Clerk Lisa Posthumus Lyons called a “bogus fishing expedition.”

This decision is a solid blow to Lindell, who has reportedly been subpoenaing a huge swath of the country’s election boards, searching for something he hopes will get him out of the legal and financial jeopardy all of his defamatory statements have gotten him into.

The MyPillow man has definitely been spending a lot of money, much of it fundraised, on legal fights—with speculation that some of the money spent on other election-denier cases has been done so illegally. This is on top of the claims Lindell has made that he has spent more than $25 million of his own money trying (and failing) to prove Donald Trump actually won the 2020 presidential election against President Joe Biden.

He has attempted every right-wing grift imaginable, including the short-lived and hilarious attempt at creating his own “free speech” social media site. In fact, since Trump left office and the tap ran dry on nickel and diming taxpayers out of their money, almost every Lindell attempt to generate some profits and interest in his cult of personality has ended up looking like a poorly thought-out comedy sketch.

This new legal loss comes just under two months after the Supreme Court declined to consider Lindell’s attempts to block the defamation lawsuit against him. it comes less than one month after a federal judge in Minnesota rejected Lindell’s attempts to get back his phone after it was seized by the FBI in connection with their ongoing investigation into potentially criminal tampering with election equipment by MAGA-loving republicans, like former Mesa County, Colorado, Clerk Tina Peters.

Guys like Lindell (and Trump, for that matter) have spent all of their lives actually being losers who have had to pretend they are winners in order to never learn from their mistakes.
