MyPilllow CEO Mike Lindell has revealed just how much he's personally spent to continue circulating former President Donald Trump's claims of voter fraud: $25 million, to be exact.

On Wednesday, December 15, Lindell appeared on CNBC News for an interview that lasted nearly an hour. The conspiracy theorist made it clear he has no intention to stop perpetuating Trump's big election lie.

“I will keep spending it because there is no tomorrow. We lose our country. We either only have two paths: either it gets changed before the 2022 election or we lose our country forever. I will spend every dime I have,” Lindell said on Wednesday. “I will spend whatever it takes.”

Lindell also insists there is a network of groups also working to circulate their claims of voter fraud. The network, known as Cause of America, typically broadcasts on Lindell's online television network.

“We are in 44 states now. We’re doing canvassing efforts. I’ll give an example. In Florida, we canvassed 10,000 people’s names, and 2,600 of them were phantom voters,” Lindell told CNBC.

Like Lindell, Trump has also continued to push "The Big Lie" and their efforts are continuing to sow doubt in the United States' voting systems and election integrity. Lindell's comments come as avid Trump allies and supporters are attempting to place themselves in key positions of power on state and local levels. Their strategic efforts raise concerns about future elections as they could possibly overturn results with the right people in positions of power.

The House Select Committee has also expressed concern about key issues surrounding the insurrection on the U.S. Capitol.

Per CNBC News:

"The House select committee investigating the insurrection told CNBC that it is interested in the funding of events that led up to the day. Lindell is linked to Women for America First, the main group that helped organize the pro-Trump rally in Washington that preceded the Capitol invasion."

On Wednesday, December 15, a House Select Committee aide weighed in with CNBC saying, “The sources and destinations of funding for events leading up to the violence of January 6th are key areas of interest for the Select Committee."
