Mike Lindell is bringing an imaginary knife to a gun fight

Washington Post

As a point of personal privilege, I would like to offer an observation rooted in nothing more than my own biases and inclinations. That is this: Were I being sued for more than $1.3 billion, I would either try very, very hard to find evidence that would allow me to win the lawsuit or I would very, very rapidly try to reach a settlement. But then, I am not Mike Lindell, MyPillow CEO and game-theory enthusiast.

That latter description comes from Lindell’s response to Dominion Voting Systems’s massive defamation suit against him: “Lindell admits he loved game theory.” Lindell also admits that “he’s a numbers guy” and that he is “good at math.” These admissions, such as they are, are part of a point-by-point response from Lindell’s attorneys to Dominion’s February suit (in which they seek the aforementioned $1.3 billion). Dominion cites Lindell as describing himself as a numbers guy and, in his response, Lindell agrees — though he disagrees with most of the assertions Dominion makes that bolster their argument against him.

Dominion’s play is to establish that Lindell knows enough about numbers that his insistences about rampant voter fraud are clearly insincere and that his claims that Dominion allowed the 2020 presidential election to be stolen were, in fact, efforts to gin up attention so that he could sell more pillows.

“Lindell pushed this false narrative even though there was no evidence to support it because he had learned from his knowledge of game theory and prior experience … that lying about Dominion would be good for MyPillow’s bottom line,” the February suit states, “and would lead to other benefits, including, for example, Trump’s anticipated endorsement for Lindell’s run for governor of Minnesota.”
