In spite of a federal indictment and another one in Georgia that accuses Donald Trump of spreading false information about the 2020 election in an effort to invalidate President Joe Biden's victory, there has been no reduction in the continuous stream of election-related misinformation coming from the ex-president and his followers.
Prior to former President Donald Trump's speech at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on June 13, 2023, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell addresses journalists. This follows Lindell's plea of not guilty in a Miami court earlier in the day on numerous felony charges related to retaining classified documents and defying government requests for their return.
Merely 48 hours subsequent to the indictment in Georgia, a prominent supporter of Trump enthusiastically stepped onto the podium at a Missouri conference to once more disseminate false information regarding the election.
Initiating an event centered around alleged election wrongdoing, Mike Lindell, the MyPillow CEO known for vocally advocating the unfounded belief that the 2020 presidential election was illegitimate, commenced with a video concerning fraudulent activities.
The presentation encompassed footage from November 2020 that claimed to depict an election worker in Fulton County, Georgia, pulling a briefcase filled with ballots from beneath a desk and discreetly including them in the vote count.
As subsequent evidence has revealed, the worker named Ruby Freeman was merely executing her responsibilities, which involved retrieving a regular government container containing valid ballots that were slated for counting.
Three distinct tabulations of the Georgia vote, including a manual count, confirmed the accurate tallying of the ballots and the correctness of the outcomes.
However, both Freeman and her daughter, who were both employed at the elections office during that time, became subjects of attention from Trump and his associates. They were accused of contributing to an alleged manipulation of the election in favor of Biden. These accusations equated them to drug dealers and subjected them to a barrage of threats.
