MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell predicted a “game changer” development will soon emerge in Michigan, where a lawsuit focused on the 2020 election is still playing out.

The controversial mustachioed businessman, whose election fraud documentary was panned by critics as being rife with falsehoods, said there will be a filing in court on Monday that will be “very embarrassing” for Newsmax, a conservative news outlet that apologized last week to an employee at Dominion Voting Systems for vote manipulation claims.

“I’ll have really big news once this day is completed,” Lindell told former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast. “It’s a game changer, and it’s really going to make Newsmax look bad.”

Lindell appeared to be referring to a lawsuit in Antrim County, Michigan, that has expanded from a legal challenge over a local marijuana retailer proposal to claims that Dominion machines and software might have intentionally manipulated the election results up and down the ballot.

 A judge recently allowed there to be testimony from people on an “expert witness” list provided by the plaintiffs to rebut a report published by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office affirming that human error, not Dominion Voting Systems machine software, led to early tabulation errors in Antrim County. Among those on the “expert witness” list is Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based firm hired by the Republican-led Senate in Arizona to conduct an audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County.

Antrim County Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer is also expected to hear arguments on whether to dismiss the lawsuit next week.

Dominion Voting Systems, which has blasted claims that it was involved in any sort of election fraud, filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Lindell in February for his claims that its voting machines were rigged. Lindell has refused to back down, announcing last month he would sue Dominion for $1.6 billion in damages he alleges the company caused to MyPillow.

Newsmax was sued by Dominion Director of Product Strategy and Security Eric Coomer in December. After several months, the news outlet acknowledged on Friday that it had “no evidence” that the employee had manipulated voting machines, and the two reached an undisclosed settlement.

Lindell insisted to Bannon that to say there is no evidence is “100% wrong” and alluded to the Maricopa County audit, saying, “The timing is just very suspicious here when you got Maricopa County coming.”

Arizona and Michigan, two states won by President Joe Biden, have been cited by former President Donald Trump and his allies as places where they expect there will be evidence showing there was fraud in the 2020 election.

Election officials have insisted their respective contests were secure and there was no widespread fraud. A hand-count audit in Antrim County found a deviation of just a dozen votes from the first tabulation, with 9,759 votes won by Trump and 5,959 going to Biden. Biden won the state of Michigan and its 16 Electoral College votes by roughly 150,000 ballots.

Dozens of election fraud lawsuits across the country were dismissed by the courts. The Supreme Court rejected the last of Trump’s election challenges in March.

Still, Lindell has insisted Trump will be back in office by August.
