MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell questioned why other conservative news outlets have refused to report on election fraud. In an appearance on former Trump advisor Steve Bannon’s podcast Friday, Lindell said he hired private investigators to look into Fox News.
He suggested it is suspicious that the network will no longer allow him on their channel to discuss claims against voting software and hardware companies. Lindell said his investigators were also probing why Big Tech companies were involved in the 2020 presidential elections.

“You know, I’m gonna have those answers soon because I’ve hired private investigators and I’ve spent a lot of money on them to investigate everything,” Lindell stated. “The bots and trolls, who’s behind them? Why is Facebook involved, Wikipedia involved? And then the big question: Why isn’t Fox having people on? Why isn’t Fox on there talking about Dominion and Smartmatic and the election?”
Lindell’s announcement of the investigation came one month after he promised the heads of Facebook and Twitter would go to jail after claiming both were guilty of “criminal activity.”
