Conservative MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is apparently the latest target of President Joe Biden’s weaponized IRS. He revealed on Saturday that his company now faces five audits from the agency.
Lindell was a guest on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast. He reported that auditors are examining earnings made by call center contract workers who functioned remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump noted that “they’re going after my employees. During the China virus…we had all these at-home moms…taking calls at our call center under contract labor across the country.”

Now, Lindell said, the IRS is conducting audits and attempting to take their jobs away. He explained the harassment began in California but now has spread to other states.
Lindell noted that the audits are “something that hasn’t happened in 15 years, and all of a sudden there’s five IRS audits against MyPillow in three different years.”
He is undoubtedly a high-profile target for leftists with an ax to grind, particularly after his public questioning of the integrity of the last presidential election. Last year, Minnesota Bank and Trust ended its relationship with MyPillow after calling the company a “reputation risk.”
Earlier this year, the CEO was ordered to pay $5 million to Robert Zeidman over a claim concerning the 2020 election.
He is also being sued for $1.3 billion by Dominion Voting Systems over alleged accusations of irregularities in the same election. And now several retailers, including Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, Dollar General, and Costco refuse to carry his merchandise.
Lindell in July was forced to auction off equipment from his pillow factory in Minnesota after reporting losses of more than $100 million in retail sales.
And the losses are not just due to woke companies refusing to stock his popular pillows. American Express recently slashed Lindell’s credit line from $1 million to only $100,000. And this came after a steady 15-year financial relationship.
Lindell is an American success story. In his personal life, he overcame drug and gambling addictions to build a powerful company that truly believes in the “made in the USA” mantra.
His factories employ thousands.
That success story changed after Joe Biden entered the White House. Lindell suddenly found his pathways to large retailers blocked when he questioned the 2020 presidential election results.
Now he is fighting for the existence of his business, and the battle even involves the U.S. government. Biden and his cronies are certainly not above weaponizing Washington to take down their opponents — just consider what they’ve done to Trump.
