Mike Lindell has said that his phone was seized by FBI agents as part of a probe into a Colorado election official. In the video posted on Facebook, Lindell said that he was served the search warrant right outside a Hardee’s restaurant.

The agents said that they were looking for records on damage, theft, or even misappropriation of voting machines. In his Facebook video, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said that the FBI was “weaponized” against him for going through with seizing his phone.

A copy of the subpoena was uploaded by Lindell. According to the document the federal agents who seized his phone did so as part of a warrant seeking records regarding the “authorization or lack of authorization to damage or modify any Dominion computerized voting system.” The investigation is also looking into “any attempted misappropriation, theft, conversion, transfer, or exfiltration of any proprietary hardware, software or other data” related to the voting machines.

A Denver FBI field office told the Daily Beast that without providing too many details, they were indeed in the location to execute a search warrant that had been approved by a federal judge.

Lindell told Insider that they were looking for information about the Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, a pro-Trump Colorado who reportedly had facilitated an election-data leak.

Lindell has previously been linked to Peters, as Peters in April was accused of taking a private plane ride from Lindell. Lindell also said that he was assisting Peter with the legal fees accrued.

Lindell said that it was four FBI agents who talked to him outside of the store and asked him for his phone. The agents also made it clear that they wouldn’t arrest him.
