My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell made a three-hour election fraud

Who needs Twitter when you’ve got a film crew?

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has made a two-hour documentary expounding on his baseless conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election.

Lindell released the film, titled “Absolute Proof,” on his YouTube channel on Friday. He’s also paid the right-wing One America News Network to run it as a commercial throughout this weekend, starting with three showings on Friday, network president Charles Herring told The Post.

Lindell claims the movie will show “100 percent” that China and other countries flipped votes in President Biden’s favor — even though Donald Trump’s own law enforcement officials found no evidence of any such thing.

“Everyone needs to share it with everyone you know, because anyone that sees this, even if it’s nine Supreme Court justices, every one of them would say, ‘Wow, this is an attack on our country,’” Lindell said in a rambling interview with the Revival Channel.

Lindell — who got his bedding company banned from Twitter this week — said he put the film together in the last two weeks, with a dozen people working on “three hours of sleep a night” over the last four days to finish it. He previously said it would be three hours long, but the final product he released has a runtime just shy of 120 minutes.

The film will appear on OANN without commercial interruptions along with a “typical disclaimer” making clear that its contents don’t reflect the network’s opinions, Herring said. He said Lindell paid “fair market value” for the airtime, though he declined to reveal the exact cost.

Herring stood by the network’s decision to run Lindell’s film even though claims about the election being rigged have landed OANN and other conservative outlets in legal hot water.

“As a national media outlet we don’t believe that anybody should tell us whether we can or cannot air programming that questions voter irregularities, and there’s clearly voter irregularities that have been [taking] place,” Herring told The Post.

“As far as the validity, I think the program will speak for itself and the viewer can make up their own minds,” he added.

Lindell has been booted from Twitter and threatened with a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over the bogus election fraud claims he’s pushed since Trump’s November loss to Biden.

His unsubstantiated theories fly in the face of findings from federal authorities. Then-Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said on Election Day that there was no evidence of any “foreign actor” altering vote tallies, while Trump-appointed Attorney General William Barr said officials had not uncovered proof of widespread voter fraud.

Dominion has asked Facebook and other social media platforms to preserve posts from OANN and other conservative networks as it pursues defamation claims. Eric Coomer, Dominion’s security director, filed his own lawsuit against OANN and others in December after being falsely accused of helping to rig the election for Biden.

Lindell reportedly visited the White House before Trump’s term ended last month. He said he wants to show his new film to the ex-president, who’s facing an impeachment trial in the Senate next week.

“I’m gonna try to get to the president and show him this and now he’s gonna know that everything he’s been saying — when he walks into those hearings, they’re gonna give him an apology,” Lindell said.

The documentary is not Lindell’s first film. He helped produce the 2019 anti-abortion drama “Unplanned” and was the focus of a 2016 documentary called “The Mike Lindell Story: An American Dream,” according to Business Insider.
