Trump On Mike Lindell’s Phone Confiscation: We Officially Live In A ‘Weaponized Police State’

President Trump, on his Truth Social account, said MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was “raided” by the FBI and had his cell phone seized.

“Breaking News: Mike Lindell, “THE Pillow Guy,” was just raided by the FBI. 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,” Trump said on his Truth Social account.

Lindell is a well-known ally and supporter of President Trump, especially as Trump continues to protest the 2020 election. He founded MyPillow in 2004 and remains the CEO of the company.

On his podcast, Lindell discussed how he was issued a subpoena stating, “The FBI came after me and took my phone. They surrounded me at a Hardee’s and took my phone that I run all my business, everything with. What they have done is weaponise the FBI, it’s disgusting. I don’t have a computer, that phone, everything was on everybody.”

One of the more curious aspects of the subpoena was that Lindell said he was asked not to tell anyone about the investigation. Forbes reports that a letter signed by an assistant U.S. attorney stated that while the law does not require nondisclosure, “we believe that the impact of any disclosure could be detrimental to the investigation.”

This is another in a line of seemingly pointed actions taken by the DOJ and FBI. Trump’s home in Mar-A-Lago was raided to find “classified” documents, 40 subpoenas have been passed out to Trump allies in the past week, and now Lindell is stopped while eating at Hardee’s to have his phone taken by what Trump calls “a weaponized police state.”

Lindell has been outspoken on his stance on the 2020 election and is reported to have said that the FBI questioned him about his comments concerning the Dominion Voting Systems. To go after a private citizen based on something he or she said about a voting machine is dangerously close to stepping on their first amendment rights.
