When will these ongoing investigations of patriotic Americans come to an end? It seems it will not be anytime soon. The FBI on Tuesday stormed into a Minnesota drive-thru to confiscate Mike Lindell’s cell phone.
Details of the encounter were provided live on his show, The Lindell report.
“We pulled through the drive-thru, they take the order, we pull up, and she says pull ahead,” Lindell explained. It was just after that when a car swooped in and parked across Lindell and a buddy of his, essentially blocking them in the drive-thru, according to Lindell.
This targeting of Mike Lindell by the FBI comes as no surprise to many Americans given recent actions by the agency, most notably the raid of former President Trump at his home, Mar-a-Lago.
Lindell infuriates the Left. Recent reports allege he helped fund bail for Kyle Rittenhouse, the Kenosha, Wisconsin teen who famously shot convicted violent criminals Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum in self-defense.
The MyPillow CEO said that he and his buddy had simply been out on a fishing trip, and were just looking to grab some food at Hardee’s while en route to his hometown in Mankato, Minnesota.
“That’s either a bad guy, or it’s FBI,” Lindell said he told his friend. He also clarified that some people in the FBI can be ‘bad guys.’
A second vehicle pulled up soon after and blocked Lindell’s vehicle on the right side, preventing him from exiting the line, per his own account.

According to Lindell, the FBI agents claimed to have a warrant to seize his cell phone, to which he answered by explaining he used the phone to “run five companies.” He soon after spoke with a lawyer, who reportedly recommended Lindell comply and turn the phone ever.
Lindell reportedly said that the FBI’s conduct that day was “disgusting” and “garbage.” Unfortunately for Lindell, this event was not the first time that government actors have ordered his records subpoenaed.
Despite these hurdles, Lindell has told reporters he remains unafraid. “I’ve been to many jails, he told ABC news. “I’m not scared to go to jail. I’m trying to save my country.”
The Denver FBI commented on the matter, issuing the following statement according to Yahoo! News: “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.”
