There is enough evidence to put 300 million Americans in jail for election fraud.

The figures provided by Mike Lindell exceed the realm of possibility, and no sources for the claims have been provided.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has claimed that he possesses enough evidence to put over 300 million US citizens “in prison for life” in an interview with conservative news channel Real America’s Voice, which aired on Tuesday.

“We have all the pieces of the puzzle. You talk about evidence. We have enough evidence to put everyone in prison for life, 300 and some million people, we have that back all the way to November and December.”

This claim is more than a little dubious. Not only has Mike Lindell not provided a source for his claims, but at the time of the election, the total number of eligible voters in the U.S. was only around 213 million, of which only 66.8% (or just under 160 million) cast a ballot. The figure given by Lindell is therefore almost double the total number of ballots that were cast in the 2020 U.S. election.

In the interview, Lindell appears to be echoing conspiracy theories concerning the Dominion voting machines used in the 2020 election which have been consistently and repeatedly disproven. No evidence of widespread election fraud has been found, according to numerous agencies and individuals, including the former Trump administration’s attorney general William Barr.
