(trendingpoliticsnews) – Clips from a March deposition of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in connection with Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation lawsuit have been released by the firm’s lawyers. In one viral clip, the MyPillow CEO went off on a Dominion lawyer after a snarky comment about “lumpy pillows.”
The clips were released online after the lawyers of Dr. Eric Coomer, Dominion Director of Product Strategy and Security, filed to compel deposition testimony in court. Coomer has also filed a lawsuit against Newsmax for similar reasons, accusing them of defamation for questioning the integrity of Dominion voting machines in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
“Okay, and I’m not asking about the lumpy pillow calls,” a Dominion lawyer said in reference to customer service calls involving Lindell. “No they’re not lumpy pillows, that’s not what they call on,” a visibly frustrated Lindell shot back, explaining how his company’s customer service works. “When you say lumpy pillows, now you’re an a***ole. You got that? You’re an a***ole is what you are!”
“No, he’s an a***ole! He’s an ambulance-chasing lawyer, so don’t start with me. I got all day,” Lindell is seen telling Coomer’s lawyer during questioning. “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,” the MyPillow CEO continued.
“His last deposition, taken in Minneapolis on August 23, 2023, ended after Mr. Lindell left the witness chair during an unscheduled break while, again, disparaging counsel,” the Dominion lawyer’s filing reads. It also referred to Lindell as “vulgar, threatening, loud, [and] disrespectful.”
“Through this Motion, Dr. Coomer seeks an order compelling Mr. Lindell to appear before the Court or the Magistrate Judge in Denver, Colorado, so that decorum can be maintained and contemporaneous rulings can be sought during a rescheduled deposition. Dr. Coomer further seeks attorney fees and expenses associated with Mr. Lindell’s discovery abuse,” the filing continued.
