Dozens of lawsuits were filed on behalf of Donald Trump's campaign after the 2020 election, but not a single one of them succeeded in overturning the results.

But Trump still claims Democrat Joe Biden won thanks to widespread voting fraud, and so does his friend and the CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell.

In fact, Mike Lindell is gearing up to file additional election lawsuits in all 50 American states.

Lindell's Lawsuits

Lindell recently explained to The Guardian that he has spent around $30 million on his effort to prove the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.

Just last month, the pillow magnate pumped more than $500,000 into a lawsuit in the state of Arizona that was filed by Republican politicians Mark Finchem and Kari Lake, who are currently running for office.

Lindell told the outlet that he plans to file similar lawsuits in other states and get rid of voting machines once and for all.

"I’d like to file the lawsuits in all 50 states. I didn’t come all this way not to succeed. We’ve got to get rid of them all," he said.

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz and attorney Kurt Olsen are both on Lindell's legal team, but experts say that chances of his lawsuits succeeding are slim to none.

In fact, some believe Lindell's effort to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election will do nothing but confuse voters and fuel conspiracy theories, potentially suppressing turnout in future elections.

There is absolutely no evidence the presidential race was rigged for Biden. On the contrary, even high-ranking Trump administration officials -- like former Attorney General William Barr -- have made it clear there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Experts Issue Warnings

Larry Norden, senior director for elections and government at the Brennan Center, described what Lindell is doing as "just another effort by proponents of the big lie to spread unsubstantiated conspiracy theories and undermine confidence in American elections."

Melanie Sloan, a senior adviser to the watchdog group American Oversight, echoed these sentiments.

"These ridiculous lawsuits are designed to continue undermining Americans’ confidence in every aspect of our electoral system, allowing Lindell and his cronies to decry any outcomes they don’t like as fraudulent," she said.

Data suggests that conspiracy theories about the 2020 election spread by individuals like Lindell and Trump have undermined faith in the U.S. electoral system.

For example, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll found that just 33 percent of Republicans would trust the 2024 election results, regardless of who wins.

In the same poll, the vast majority of Democrats and 60 percent of independent voters said they trust elections in the country either a great deal or a good amount.
