President Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating Trump ally and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
The DOJ is investigating Lindell over potential identity theft and damage to a protected computer in connection with a breach of a Colorado county’s voting system. The latest development comes on the heels FBI seizure of Lindell’s phone last week while he was waiting at a drive-thru in Minnesota.
The Hill reported:
The warrant for the search, which was filed by Lindell’s team on Wednesday as part of his lawsuit to the United States District Court in Minnesota, showed that the DOJ is investigating Lindell for identity theft, intentional damage to a protected computer and conspiracy to commit identity theft or intentionally damage a protected computer.
The warrant was approved by U.S. Magistrate Judge Tony Leung on Sept. 7, according to document. Law enforcement were required to execute the search warrant before Wednesday, Sept. 21.
Federal agents searched for records or information connected to Mesa County election clerk Tina Peters’s alleged scheme to breach voting machines during the 2020 election.
Officials were initially notified of the breach after passwords and hard drive copies from Mesa County voting machines were presented at an event hosted by Lindell.
