Mike Lindell turns on Arizona auditors — and calls them 'part of the coverup'

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Tuesday unexpectedly turned on the Cyber Ninjas audit that failed to prove former President Donald Trump won the state of Arizona.

Even though Lindell at one point believed the audit would pave the way for Trump's "reinstatement" as president, he told Steve Bannon this week that the Arizona audit was seemingly part of an elaborate ruse.

Specifically, Lindell faulted Cyber Ninjas for writing a report of their findings without first obtaining routers used by Maricopa County during the 2020 election.

"We got to quit having them do fraudits -- that's fraudulent audits!' Lindell fumed. "This is part of the coverup! Then the media goes, 'Yep, look at that, Arizona, Biden won.' No he didn't! Donald Trump won Arizona by a quarter of a million votes! That's fact!"

It was not fact, as the Cyber Ninjas "audit" actually found that Trump lost to Biden by a larger margin than the official state count.
