MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is now spinning a new conspiracy theory suggesting Fox News was involved in the 2020 "election crime."

In fact, Lindell also went a step further suggesting the news network is secretly backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

Speaking to Chris Cuomo during a recent segment of NewsNation, Lindell offered his take on Fox News' speculated support of the Florida governor declaring, “Fox’s candidate is Ron DeSantis."

Lindell went on to explain why he believes Fox News was in on the election conspiracies. According to the MyPillow CEO, “Fox played a big part of this election crime because back then, they called Arizona early."

He also slammed the news network's $787.5 settlement as he raised questions about the reason for the seemingly abrupt decision.

“And they make this deal with Dominion, this back door deal?” Lindell said. “Give me a break!”

Cuomo pushed back against Lindell's speculation, insisting the reason for the settlement was simply because Fox News was aware of the fact that they didn't have a defense against the claims presented by the Dominion Voting Systems legal team.

“They made the deal with the menu because they were caught and they knew was gonna get only worse,” Cuomo retorted.

“I have subpoenaed Fox for evi–they’ve never asked me for the evidence,” Lindell said. “We have subpoenaed Fox for their evidence and they won’t give us anything. They won’t give us anything!”

“But Mike, Mike, they’re not gonna produce evidence of the nonexistence of the election being rigged,” Cuomo said. “And they did more than anybody else did to fuel the speculation, which is how they got jammed up with Dominion.”
