My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell lashed out at the “rotten, horrible lawyers” and a federal judge during his deposition as part of a defamation lawsuit from former Dominion Voting Systems employee Eric Coomer over his claims that the 2020 election was rigged.
At the beginning of the deposition, after a lawyer told Lindell to speak slowly so the court reporter could take down his words, Lindell shot back, “Don’t sit and scold me already, mister. I’ll do whatever I have to do.” Throughout the rest of the deposition, Lindell hit the lawyers with insult after insult.
“You’re just a lawyer, you’re an ambulance-chasing lawyer, so don’t start with me. I got all day,” he protested. “I’ll take as much time as you want, so let’s go. You’re not my boss, you’re just a lawyer, frivolous lawyer.” After one of the lawyers asked Lindell, “Why did you call me an ambulance chaser?” the My Pillow CEO replied, “Because you are. This is a frivolous case and if you’re representing this guy and you’ve read this case, you are a disgusting lawyer, period.”
Lindell continued, “I can’t believe anybody would take this. This is absolutely disgusting, it’s a disgrace to our country, it’s a disgrace to you.” Upon being reminded that “there’s a federal judge that’s going to likely be reading and watching this deposition,” Lindell said, “I don’t care. She should have dismissed this a long time ago. She hasn’t ruled on that, there’s a problem. I got a problem with her too.”
Someone needs to remind Mikey of the meaning of F.A.F.O.
