(Jan. 15, 2021) — According to a report at The Washington Examiner, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, an enthusiastic Trump supporter, met with the president for several minutes Friday to deliver a message from “an attorney” and evidence of alleged “foreign interference” in the November 3 election.
On Twitter earlier in the day, The Washington Post released a partial photo of typewritten notes Lindell carried with him containing the name “Sidney Powell,” a former federal prosecutor who vowed shortly after the election to expose the “massive fraud” she claimed took place during the election which resulted in a reported win for Democrat Joe Biden.
Photos and video of Lindell’s visit are posted on Twitter by The Hill and others.
Lindell’s notes also contained a reference to “foreign interference in the election” and referred to a male attorney “with cyber-xxxxxx expertise” who “is up to speed on election issues.”
In December, confirmation of “foreign interference” in the election coming from Iran, China and Russia was reportedly conveyed to CBS News’s Catherine Herridge by Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe.
In an interview post-election with “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo, Ratcliffe expressed doubt that there would be a “Biden administration” but did not elaborate.
A report from the intelligence community due to the president on December 18 was delayed, Ratcliffe indicated, due to disagreement over whether or not China interfered, although a Fox News report from October, quoting “U.S. officials,” reported that China was already playing a role.
The Examiner reported it spoke directly with Lindell, quoting him as having said on Friday he was “delivering recommendations from an attorney” with whom Lindell and Trump had met on Thursday.
“Trump is holding back-to-back meetings, he explained,” The Examiner wrote of Lindell. The president has been heard from only twice since social-media companies Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and others suspended his accounts late last week.
On Friday evening, Facebook restored Trump’s video feed along with his Instagram account.
As recently as Sunday, Lindell was seen in a video insisting that Trump will remain in office “for the next four years” despite the preparations for and anticipation of a Biden administration. “I’m actually going to be meeting with Sidney Powell, General Flynn, everybody on my team; a lot of stuff going on that I can’t say,” Lindell states in the video, taken on a plane en route to his home state of Minnesota. “All I want to do is give everybody confidence that Donald Trump’s going to be your president for the next four years. They’re very much afraid that all the evidence that I know is there is going to come out this week…This is the only time we have in history to beat these guys, to suppress the evil and beat the evil.”
He went on to say that the “algorithms” allegedly set by unstated parties to change the outcome of the election were “broken” due to the number of Americans who cast votes for Trump. “I want Americans to see what I’ve seen, all the evidence…” he said. “…One hundred percent, Donald Trump is going to be your president the next four years,” he repeated. “I don’t want anyone to lose the faith…”
A report by White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro, written in his personal capacity and released in three sections over the last two weeks, states unequivocally that Trump won the election but is being denied his rightful place in the Oval Office for another four years due to systematic fraud in six battleground states.
The Trump campaign filed more than 50 lawsuits challenging the results in all of the battleground states, with none being heard on the merits.
Many Trump aides have already left the White House, including Hope Hicks, who played a key role in the former businessman’s 2016 election campaign and afterward. On Friday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted she is about to depart.
In a letter dated January 12, HHS Secretary Alex Azar wrote he will leave at noon on January 20, the time Biden is scheduled to take his oath of office. In a tweet containing screenshots of the letter, Azar announced, “Contrary to the @CNN chyron, I am still here serving the American people at HHS. I believe it is my duty to help ensure a smooth transition to President-elect Biden’s team during the pandemic and will remain as Secretary through January 20.”
As this story went to press, Lindell was noted to have tweeted:
