Mike Lindell touted his plan to hold a Thanksgiving weekend marathon unveiling the evidence he has gathered proving Donald Trump was robbed of re-election in an interview with the HuffPost that ended with the MyPillow CEO hanging up, but he refused to reveal the names of lawyers who handed him a mysterious letter he handed to Trump following the January 6th insurgency.
According to S.V. Date of the Huffington Post, the outspoken Lindell was more than happy to discuss his “Black Friday prank,” but remained silent when asked about his interactions with the former president.
Despite the fact that the House select committee investigating the Capitol incident considers the businessman a “person of interest,” Lindell insists he hasn’t heard from them and is unconcerned.
“Lindell said he has not been contacted by the committee and ‘could care less if the two-page letter he delivered to Trump on Jan. 15, nine days after the Trump-incited mob attacked the Capitol, is among the material turned over. ‘What does that have to do with me?’ he told Huff Post,” Date reports before adding, “Lindell claimed he met with Trump primarily to give him four pages of ‘proof’ that the election had been hacked by China but also handed over an envelope he said was given to him by two lawyers to give to Trump.”
When asked about the lawyer’s identities Lindell stated,” None of your business. Are you out of your mind?” before adding he has no idea what was contained in the letter, explaining, “It was given to me in confidence…. I had never read it. I had never looked at it.”
Lindell was seen on Jan. 15 in the White House holding two sheets of folded paper, one of which had the words “martial law, if necessary, at the first hint of any” scrawled on it, with the beginning and end of the sentence hidden by the fold.
Lindell stated during the interview that he had a slew of “state attorneys general signing on to his complaint” that he plans to take to the Supreme Court, but he declined to name them, claiming that he was protecting them from “attacks.”
When pressed further, he shot back, “I’m not going to give you, their names! Are you kidding?” before saying their names would be revealed when they “sign the lawsuit together on Nov. 23, the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.”
The Supreme Court, the country’s highest appeals court, normally does not accept cases that have not been heard elsewhere, and Lindell provided no explanation as to why the justices would make an exception for him. “I honestly believe they’ll accept it 9-0,” he remarked. “I really think they’re going to accept it 9-0,” he said. “It will require a new election across the board…. Declare the 2020 vote void and order new elections across the board.”
Lindell abruptly ended the interview by hanging up when HuffPost asked how the paper ballot hand recount in Georgia that confirmed Biden’s win was compatible with his computer hacking theory, according to the report, with Date writing, “When HuffPost asked how the paper ballot hand recount in Georgia that confirmed Biden’s win there was compatible with his computer hacking theory, Lindell grew angry and hung up.”
