Well, this doesn’t look good. MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was spotted by the Washington Post entering the White House with notes in hand. Spying on the Trump loyalist, they captured pics allegedly showing notes discussing martial law, the Insurrection Act, and a CIA leadership shakeup. That meeting ended just five minutes after Lindell arrived so it obviously went nowhere.
The title of his notes, in all capital letters, includes the words “TAKEN IMMEDIATELY TO SAVE THE … THE CONSTITUTION”
Lindell allegedly said that Trump appeared ‘disinterested’ in his notes, and officials say Trump quickly dismissed him and sent him to the White House Counsel’s office, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. It’s hard to believe anything from the New York Times, but that has the ring of truth about it.
CNN quickly jumped on the incident and their video blatantly sneers at the president, denigrates him, and just drips with ill-concealed hatred. This is CNN.
Lindell has always been a supporter of Trump’s. He has stood by the president from the beginning and has taken a strong stance against election fraud. His appearance at the White House was reportedly unexpected. A Marine was stationed outside the West Wing, indicating Trump was most likely there.
Lindell told Haberman that the notes he was carrying were on behalf of an unnamed attorney he’s been working with to prove that Trump really won the presidential election. He denied that the notes referenced martial law but photos of his notes seem to indicate otherwise.
Next, Lindell visited White House Counsel Pat Cipollone. Again, in the alleged notes, they called for Cipollone to be fired according to Haberman. That would have been a very awkward meeting, to say the least.
Photos of the notes show snippets of what Lindell was potentially pondering. The left has been going after him because he also spoke to the January 6 rally crowd outside the White House before protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
One line of the notes purportedly stated that “martial law if necessary upon the first hint of any…” Without real context, it is hard to know exactly what that is addressing or whether it was in the past, present, or suggested for the future.
Another line, partly obscured by Lindell’s hand, appears to reference the Insurrection Act. That would pertain to the use of military forces inside the country. The note allegedly said to “Act now as a result of the assault on the …”

Other lines seem to suggest recommended staff changes. One such line reads “Colon NOW as Acting National Security…” Which seems to suggest a shakeup atop the National Security Agency or a new National Security Advisor.
Attorney Sidney Powell was unsurprisingly mentioned. “Move Kash Patel to CIA Acting,” the note also says, in a line which could indicate a proposal to oust CIA Director Gina Haspel, and put in her place a Trump supporter who was recently moved to the Pentagon. Mind you, every last bit of this is conjecture by the media, so take it for what it is worth.
Another line: “Been with getting the evidence of ALL the … as the election and all information regarding … among people he knows who already have security … done massive research on these issues,” the notes say. Which would seem to indicate this did indeed have something to do with a consultation with a lawyer.
“Foreign Interference in the election Trigger … powers, make clear this is a China/Iran … domestic actors. Instruct Frank,” another note reads.
Trump is expected to depart D.C. on January 20th, with no plans for the traditional meeting with President-elect Joe Biden or to attend his inauguration. Trump is not the first president by any means to do such a thing historically.
Lindell should be given the benefit of the doubt concerning a private conversation with the president. But that will never happen as media vultures are watching every little move in the last days of the Trump administration.
