The proverbial cat came out of the bag on Wednesday at the cyber symposium being sponsored and hosted by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell when a person identified as a “cyber expert” admitted that he had no conclusive proof the 2020 election was hacked or stolen.

The Daily Beast reports that Josh Merritt, who is known as Lindell’s top cyber expert, had to report that the $5 million Lindell offered to anyone who could disprove his claims that China hacked the election has now been withdrawn:

In an interview with The Washington Times on Wednesday, Merritt acknowledged that the data Lindell had long promised to reveal at this week’s symposium in South Dakota was bogus.

“According to Merritt, that’s because there was nothing to reveal. The ‘packet captures are unrecoverable in the data’ and “the data, as provided, cannot prove a cyberincursion by China,” he told the Times.

“’So our team said, we’re not going to say that this is legitimate if we don’t have confidence in the information,’ Merritt said.”

Despite Merrritt’s admission, however, Lindell continues to claim that the U.S. Supreme Court will soon “reinstate” Donald Trump as president.

However. Lindell’s bogus assertions about the election being stolen from Trump could wind up costing him the fortune he’s amassed from selling overpriced pillows, as a judge ruled Wednesday that a massive lawsuit against Lindell and others who have claimed wrongdoing in the 2020 balloting can proceed, according to The Hill:

“A federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday rejected requests from former Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, pro-Trump lawyer Sidney Powell and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell that he dismiss lawsuits from Dominion Voting Systems against the three.

“The ruling pertains to three defamation lawsuits Dominion filed — at $1.3 billion each — against the three defendants for allegedly claiming without evidence that the voting machine company rigged the 2020 presidential election for President Biden by manipulating votes.”

It remains to be seen how many pillows Lindell would have to sell in order to pay such an enormous legal judgement.
