MyPillow CEO Visits Trump in Oval Office Carrying Mysterious Notes

MyPillow CEO Visits Trump in Oval Office Carrying Mysterious Notes

"Trigger [ineligible] powers. Make clear this is China/Iran".

It's hard to tell what exactly the document is about and it's unclear what was discussed during the meeting between the MyPillow CEO and the president. Lindell, who spoke at the Republican National Convention, said that Democrats should be blamed for the riots in Minneapolis after African-American George Floyd died in police custody.

On President Donald Trump's final Friday in office, his public schedule predictably says he "will work from early in the morning until late in the evening".

The document also appears to advise Trump to "move Kash Patel to CIA Acting". But according to two administration officials, Trump has actually discussed with others the idea of installing Patel as acting Central Intelligence Agency director before. Lindell is holding the notes with a phone in one hand and a coffee cup in the other hand, bending the notes face open so that some sentences are legible.

"Other phrases, which are not fully legible, reference investigating the 2020 election, which Trump lost and has yet to concede".

This is far from the first time Trump has turned to Lindell, maybe the president's most ardent supporter from the business world. Lindell did not take any questions from press upon leaving the West Wing.

The images of the notes come after sleep-aids seller Lindell deleted calls for the president to "impose martial law" on states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Minnesota and Pennsylvania from his timeline.

Another line, cut off by a fold in the paper, appears to read "Insurrection Act now", referring to a law which allows the President to deploy federal troops in extraordinary circumstances.

Lindell told New York Times' Maggie Haberman that the notes he was carrying were from an attorney, whom he did not identify. It's a measure Powell in particular has amplified calls for on her Twitter feed, as the MAGA-verse brainstormed mechanisms Trump could use to nullify the election results and hold a new vote.
