MyPillow CEO and Trumpster conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell lost his mind at CPAC when CBS reporter Robert Costa questioned him about the "martial law" papers he was seen carrying into the White House back in January 2021. As we discussed at the time:
Unfortunately, a good portion of Lindell’s notes was obscured but they mention “… Insurrection Act now as a result of the assault on the ... martial law if necessary upon the first hint of any …” and “...on Foreign Interference in the election. Trigger ... powers. Make clear this is China/Iran ... also used domestic actors.” Lindell also mentions moving Trump loyalist Kash Patel to the CIA.
Costa tried asking the MyPillow guy about the details of the documents he was seen carrying and was met with this hostile response from Lindell:
Despite repeated attempts, the names of the lawyers who drafted the papers remained unknown, and Costa approached Lindell to find out the missing piece of information.
When Costa asked Lindell who drafted the papers, he responded: "That's none of your business. A bunch of lawyers did. I never read them."
Lindell then laced into a range of debunked conspiracy theories involving Dominion Voting Systems.
The businessman said that he "never" discussed the issue of martial law with Trump, and then told Costa "to go back watching your old rotten news."
Lindell then started yelling at Costa and deriding him as a "traitor," prompting others to jump into the mix.
"You're a traitor!" Lindell said. "This is old news you're regurgitating."
