FBI agents surrounded MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in public on Tuesday and seized his phone in the Justice Department’s latest move to intimidate Trump allies.
The FBI reportedly approached Lindell and demanded the MyPillow CEO turn over his phone at a Hardee’s drive-thru in Minnesota.
“Cars pulled up in front of us, to the side of us, and behind us,” Lindell said. “It turns out, they were the FBI.”
On his show, Lindell explained, “I said, ‘You know, you guys, are you going to arrest me?’ I said ‘I’ve been asking for you guys. This will make international… news!'”
While the FBI did not arrest Lindell, they seized his phone after sharing proof of a warrant they had obtained to confiscate it. Lindell believes the FBI’s actions are a result of his fierce stand for election integrity and his actions to expose voter fraud in the 2020 election.
President Donald Trump shared news of the FBI’s raid on Lindell on Truth Social, stating, “Breaking News: Mike Lindell, ‘THE Pillow Guy,’ was just raided by the FBI.”
The 45th president warned Americans, “We are now officially living in a Weaponized Police State, Rigged Elections, and all. Our Country is a laughing stock all over the World.”
The FBI’s actions Tuesday confirm what Trump and other Republican lawmakers warned: if the FBI can be used by a political party to raid a president’s residence, it can be used to threaten any political opponents of the Democrat Party.
In the wake of the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago and reports of dozens of FBI raids on Trump allies last week, the Justice Department is continuing to demonstrate its loyalty to the Democrat Party while encroaching on the freedoms and protections guaranteed to American citizens under the law.
The Tuesday incident was confirmed by the FBI. An FBI spokesperson told the Washington Examiner, “Without commenting on this specific matter, I can confirm that the FBI was at that location executing a search warrant authorized by a federal judge.”
Trump urged Americans to help take back the nation and restore justice to America, saying, “The majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!”
