Supporter of forty-fifth President Donald Trump, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, revealed during an interview on Real America’s Voice’s War Room with Steve Bannon on Thursday he has assembled “some of the best lawyers in the country” and will be suing the United States government after his phone was seized by the FBI.
The lawyers Lindell dubbed as “some of the best lawyers in the country” include Alan Dershowitz, Andrew Parker, Kurt Olson, and more.
“We are suing the United States government and the FBI. This isn’t just to get the phone back, this is my First, Fourth, and Fifth Amendment rights were broken… We aren’t going to put up with this, we aren’t going to be the Gestapo like in Nazi Germany. We’re being proactive,” Lindell began.
“I was on the phone with these attorneys, I said ‘no, I want to sue.’ … We have all the lawyers on the phone, they looked at all these statutes, we are going to go to places that no man has gone before. This will set a precedent. This has to stop,” he added. “This has got to stop, Steve, and we’re going to do it,” Lindell said.
“Mike Lindell is on offense. He’s not going to sit there, because they’re coming for you. Lindell, tell me one more time, you got Dershowitz, what are you doing specifically about the FBI and these kick-down-the-door raids?” Bannon said.
“We had all the lawyers for over two hours, and they might even still be on the phone, I said ‘I want this done now.’ … All the lawyers were in agreement, we are going to set a precedent,” Lindell answered.
This comes days after Lindell announced, during an Instagram livestream, on Tuesday his phone was seized by the FBI. FBI agents reportedly confronted Lindell in a fast food drive-thru and told him they had a warrant for his cell phone and would be taking it.
Lindell posted documents given to him by the FBI titled “Items to be seized.” The document demand “the physical cellular telephone assigned call number [redacted] “LINDELL CELLPHONE,” “All records and information on the LINDELL CELLPHONE that constitute fruits, evidence, or instrumentalities of … identity theft,” “intentional damage to a protected computer,” and “conspiracy to commit identity theft and/or to cause intentional damage to a protected computer.”
“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 wrote in a post on Truth Social.
