Mike Lindell: The FBI stopped me and seized my phone

During a segment on his Lindell TV show, MyPillow CEO and election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell said that the FBI stopped him while he was eating at a fast food restaurant and seized his cellphone.

Lindell said an agent walked up to him and informed him that they had a warrant for his cellphone, to which Lindell replied that he needs his phone to run his companies since he doesn’t have a computer.

“My hearing aids run off this! Everything runs off my phone,” Lindell recounted himself saying to the FBI agent. “And then I said, ‘If I don’t give it to you, will you arrest me then?’ … I was just going, are you kidding me? You’re not getting my phone.”

While Lindell’s account of what happened hasn’t been confirmed, the Department of Justice issued around 40 subpoenas last week in its investigation of former President Donald Trump and his allies’ effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
