Dominion announced a lawsuit against MyPillow in February, alleging Lindell defamed the company when discussing allegations that it’s voting machines were rigged against President Trump.
In the countersuit, MyPillow made a distinction between its company and its CEO, saying Lindell was speaking on his own accord when talking about Dominion and that MyPillow has not engaged in discussion about the 2020 election.
