My Pillow CEO, Trump ally faces probe for plot to target 2020 election computers

Source: Reuters

By Sarah N. Lynch

WASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Mike Lindell, the My Pillow Inc chief executive and ally to former President Donald Trump, is under U.S. federal investigation for identity theft and for conspiring to damage a protected computer connected to a suspected voting equipment security breach in Colorado.

The new details about the focus of the investigation were confirmed on Wednesday after Lindell's attorneys uploaded a copy of a search and seizure warrant approved by U.S. Magistrate Judge Tony Leung for Minnesota federal court on Sept. 7.

Leung approved the warrant based on probable cause that Lindell and other possible co-conspirators may have violated federal laws prohibiting identity fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and causing intentional damage a protected computer.

Lindell's attorneys uploaded the warrant as part of their lawsuit against the Justice Department to demand the return of Lindell's cell phone, which FBI agents seized on Sept. 13 while he was ordering fast food at a drive-through window.

6. He is not right in the head.

This seems to be a common thread among diehard trump worshipers.

8. Prison Rape

It’s not a joke. Reconsider your comment.

The pillow guy is indeed a moron, but prisons are hell and draconian methods in 2022. Do we not have better ways to control crime in 2022 than to shackle people’s hands and feet so they can’t move?

9. I wasn't even thinking prison rape when I wrote that.

I was thinking more like a medical probe since he is so full of shit.

11. Point taken, your reputation precedes you

But in the context of Pillow Guy being in criminal jeopardy it’s an easy mental leap. Apologies if I offended.

And, seriously, a coup plotter of the United States Government is known as “The Pillow Guy”?

That should tell us how serious they are…

12. And what's that other dude's name,

Mr Big Box Guy or something? You just can't make some of this stuff up. It's like a bad gangster film.
