Trump Has a Nervous Breakdown Over FBI Seizing Mike Lindell’s Cell Phone

The FBI is going into its “60 Day period,” the time during which it tries to lay off criminal investigations that have some sort of political implications, with a big bang, serving subpoenas and warrants on forty to fifty people associated with Trump’s effort to steal the 2020 election from the rightful winner. In the last week, the FBI has served 40 subpoenas for electronic devices on people who served as fake electors, arrested Steve Bannon, and now has taken Mike Lindell’s phone under a warrant.

Lindell is more than a bit scared, as you will see in his eyes below (video at bottom of the article). But as scared as Lindell might be, there might be someone even more afraid. From Donald Trump’s Truth Social:

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!

A weaponized police state says the guy who put the military on the border, considered unleashing the military on America’s streets in 2020, cleared out Lafayette Park, and who pardoned his friends who kept quiet.

Now, let’s hear from Mike Lindell himself. Poor Mike doesn’t have a computer; all his stuff was on his phone – we presume that means all his proof that the election was stolen. Plus, the FBI told him not to tell anyone! There is one good thing that came out of the matter, Lindell was at Hardees, which serves a mad mushroom and swiss burger, perhaps the best fast food burger in existence.

Wow. He looks scared. The indignation is faked. The anger and fear are real. You can see it and hear it in his voice. There could be some interesting things on that phone. Maybe Trump has a reason to be worried.
