MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell had an exceptionally bad day Tuesday. He was waiting in the Hardee’s fast-food lane in Mankato, Minnesota when several FBI agents reportedly approached his car and seized his cellphone.
Apparently, there is a collection of individuals crisscrossing America to spread the lie that the voting machines used in the 2020 presidential election had been rigged. Lindell spoke about the event on his podcast, The Lindell Report. He said, according to CBS News:
‘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.’
The agents wanted to know about Dominion Voting Systems, Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, and science and math teacher Doug Frank. The CEO said:
Peters had been arrested for fomenting a “deceptive scheme.” It was an attempt to alter voting software nationwide. Lindell showed the letter he received signed by an assistant U.S. attorney in Colorado It indicated that the prosecutors had enlisted grand jury, and they were looking into an “official criminal investigation of a suspected felony.”.
FBI spokesperson Vikki Migoya sent an email to the Associated Press (AP). It read:
‘Without commenting on this specific matter, I can confirm that the FBI was at that location executing a search warrant authorized by a federal judge.’
Peters obtained a stolen copy of Dominion’s proprietary software. She had given it to others looking for an opportunity to “probe for vulnerabilities that could be exploited during a future election.”
All in all, it was:
‘[A]deceptive scheme which was designed to influence public servants, breach security protocols, exceed permissible access to voting equipment, and set in motion the eventual distribution of confidential information to unauthorized people.’
Peters was facing three federal offenses, including:
- ‘[A]ttempting to influence a public servant,
- [C]riminal impersonation, and
- ‘[O]fficial misconduct.’
Lindell held a “cybersymposium” to explain how the voting machines had been tampered with, and he promoted the symposium with a “promise to reveal proof of that during the event.” But after two years, no one has come forth with any evidence proving criminal intent on the part of Dominion.
Peters has been touring the country spreading the word about Trump’s fake charges. It appeared that the FBI investigation included a system to give unauthorized people “access to voting systems in Georgia and Michigan.”
Colorado state election officials discovered the security breach in Mesa County, Colorado when a video surfaced online and on a conservative webpage showing the “confidential voting system passwords.” In addition, Dominion Voting Systems’ hard drive was posted on the Internet.
Frank originally came to Peters and her staff where he told her the county election system could be hacked. They bought into Trump’s conspiracy theory and also feared that Colorado would “wipe” the voting machines.
