Unstoppable election integrity advocate and CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, announced on Thursday during an interview on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” that he would be suing the U.S. government and the FBI after they took his phone. “We are suing – you’re hearing it here first, everybody – we’re suing the United States government and the FBI,” Lindell said.
“And this isn’t just to get the phone back,” he continued. “…My first, fourth, and fifth amendment rights were broken and the constitutional right[s]. This needs to go everywhere. We’re not gonna put up with this. We’re not gonna be the Gestapo, like in Nazi Germany.”
Lindell’s countermove comes on the heels of the FBI’s dramatic interception and seizure of the MyPillow innovator’s cell phone while he was in a drive-thru at a Hardee’s in Minnesota, per RSBN.
Lindell was not arrested, but the agents took his phone.
“Steve…we’re being proactive,” Lindell went on in his comments. “I was on the phone with these attorneys – I said, ‘No, I want to sue. What can we do?’ We got all the lawyers on the phone, they looked up all these statutes. We’re gonna go in places where no man has gone before.”
Lindell has advocated for election integrity since the dubious events surrounding the 2020 presidential election and the countless reports of election fraud, irregularities, and ballot trafficking that have surfaced across the country since then.
President Donald Trump responded to the news that Lindell’s phone had been seized by the FBI on Truth Social this week. He wrote, “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 majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!”
“This will set a precedent,” Lindell continued during his conversation with Bannon. “This has to stop. Nobody gets to bash people’s door down and you get forty seconds to answer your door. Nobody gets to corner and take a phone away of a private citizen and their company phone…and their hearing aids, everything else.”
He also pointed out, “Everything I have was in that phone,” including all of the information for his business and passwords.
“I mean, this has gotta stop, Steve, and we’re gonna do it,” Lindell added.
