Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz, who is famous — or maybe infamous is the better term — for his involvement in the O.J. Simpson case, recently came to the defense of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, stating that the Dominion Voting System lawsuit has basically no chance whatsoever of succeeding.
According to a report from BizPacReview, Dershowitz made an appearance on Greg Kelly’s program on Newsmax TV late Tuesday evening where he responded to reports about Dominion’s lawsuit against Lindell.
“Whether Lindell was right or wrong, he had the right to express his views, and this is part of the public debate, and I don’t think, unless they can demonstrate that, with malice, he deliberately, willfully, knowingly defamed them,” he stated.
Dershowitz then went on to add, “I don’t think they’re going to get any pillows out of this.”
The Harvard professor emeritus made these comments toward the end of a segment on the program that discussed how Democrats were attempting to force cable companies to ban conservative news channels.
Dominion filed the lawsuit against Lindell on Monday of this week, accusing him of defaming the company over his continued allegations that the company helped to rig the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden.
“In its complaint, the company cites a number of statements made by Mr. Lindell, including in media appearances, social-media posts, and a two-hour film claiming to prove widespread election fraud. Mr. Lindell said he helped produce the film, which he released online in early February,” The Wall Street Journal said in a recently published report.
“The complaint alleges that Mr. Lindell made false claims about the integrity of Dominion’s voting machines and that he knew no credible evidence supported his claims that the company had stolen the election from Mr. Trump—what Dominion has called the ‘Big Lie,’” the report went on.
Lindell is not being intimidated by the move made by Dominion, stating he was “very, very happy” about the whole thing.
“I have all the evidence on them. Now this will get disclosed faster, all the machine fraud and the attack on our country,” Lindell said.
This attempt by Dominion to punish Lindell for claiming that the election was rigged comes about as many Democrats in Congress seek to permanently silence the voices of OANN, Newsmax, and Fox News for daring to allow those on the right to have a platform to share their thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.
“Right now members of Congress — actual sitting members of Congress — are sending out official letters to cable companies telling them to kick us off their cable systems,” Kelly said at the start of the segment with Dershowitz.
“Isn’t that ridiculous? Isn’t that a little bit scary? Doesn’t that sound like McCarthyism? Just a little bit? I don’t know if I would have made the connection to McCarthyism had I not read professor Alan Dershowitz’s new Newsmax article where he makes the case that what we’re facing is something akin to McCarthyism,” he continued.
