Prominent Trump supporter and 2020 election integrity skeptic Mike Lindell says he was stopped by the FBI Tuesday and had his cell phone seized.
While heading home from a hunting trip with a friend, Lindell said he was at a Hardees in Minnesota when "cars pulled up in front of us, to the side of us and behind us, and I said 'they're either bad guys or the FBI,'" he said. "Well, it turns out they were the FBI.
"I can't even imagine that you can take someone's phone because they want me to be a witness in the Tina Peters case. But I'm not a witness, they just want my phone."
Lindell is the latest Trump ally to receive a warrant or subpoena by the FBI. Last week, the Biden DOJ hit dozens of Trump aides and allies with subpoenas as part of their investigation into efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 US election over claims of fraud that handed Joe Biden the White House, as well as the run up to the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot.
Interesting how the Biden DOJ waited more tha 18 months - right before midterms - to initiate legal action against Trumpworld. And Biden said he wouldn't weaponize the Justice Department.
