The DOJ really isn’t interested in having Donald Trump run for office again in 2024, and they’ve taken to antagonizing just about everyone who had any contact with him during his presidency in order to achieve this goal.
This ever-widening net has led Trump and other to liken the Justice Department’s myriad probes as nothing more than a political “fishing expedition”, in which the DOJ is hoping to dig up enough dirt to keep Trump off the ballot in ’24.
The latest victim of this electoral meddling in Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, and close confidante to Donald Trump.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a supporter of Donald Trump who has espoused the former president’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen, said he wasTuesday and that his phone was seized.
Lindell claimed in a video posted online Tuesday that FBI agents approached him after he ordered food at a Hardee’s drive-thru in Mankato, Minnesota. Patrick McSweney, an attorney for Lindell, confirmed in an email to CBS News that the subpoena was served and Lindell’s cell phone was confiscated.
“We pull ahead and a car comes perpendicular and parks a little ways in front of us, and I’ve been around the block, and I said to my buddy, I said, ‘uh that’s either a bad guy, or it’s FBI,” Lindell said in the video.
Lindell went on to suggest that the agents involved were all well-behaved, and didn’t complain too terribly about the situation.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, had some thoughts over on Truth Social:
The targeting of Donald Trump by the DOJ has been routinely criticized by the GOP as a political hit job, and with no charges pending at this time, refuting that accusation is rather difficult.
