Mike Lindell, who is the CEO of MyPillow, is turning the tables on Nancy Pelosi.
Lindell has filed a lawsuit against Pelosi and other members of the Jan. 6 committee.
Left-wing Democrats and a few anti-Trump Republicans are continuing their witch hunt against President Donald Trump by looking to acquire Lindell’s personal phone records.
The committee issued a subpoena for the phone records.
Lindell fired back by suing the committee, Pelosi, and Verizon in order to stop the carrier from turning over the information.
He told CNBC, “I wasn’t there on January 6th and yes they did subpoena my phone records but we filed a complaint for declaratory and injunctive relief against the January 6th committee and Verizon to completely invalidate this corrupt subpoena.
The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for Minnesota, said Lindell’s actions challenging the results of the November 2020 election were “motivated, in part, by his strongly held religious beliefs.”
Top Democrats like Pelosi have continued to push a false narrative that the events of January 6, 2021 were an organized attempt by Trump to overturn the presidential election result.
The only problem is that an extensive FBI investigation found “no evidence that he Trump or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence, according to the four current and former law enforcement officials.”
On the contrary, there is strong evidence that roughly 96% of cases were “one-off incidents” and only 4% could be tied to various militia-type groups. These groups were still not centrally coordinated.
The new report vindicates Trump as being falsely linked to allegedly inciting or organizing the events of Jan. 6th and wrongfully banned by social media platforms.
A former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation explained, “Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases. Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized,” he added.
“But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages,” he concluded.

It said enforcing the subpoena would violate his rights to “freedom of religion, speech, press, political expression, and to associate with others to advance their shared beliefs.”
The lawsuit also said members of the committee “acted without authority because they were not validly organized as a House committee” according to the rules of the House, The Hill reported.
In addition, it argued that the subpoena “exceeds the authority of the Select Committee” because it requests “records that are far beyond the scope of the Select Committee’s investigation.”
Lindell’s lawsuit is only the most recent legal action taken by Trump allies. Others have brought similar lawsuits against the committee and Pelosi.
At the end of December, Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser to Trump, sued the committee to block its subpoena for his phone records, CNN reported.
Others who have done so include former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, radio host and commentator Alex Jones and attorney John Eastman.
