Trump’s borderline hysterical reaction to the news appeared to mirror that of Lindell himself, who claimed on Facebook that he’d been “surrounded” by FBI agents who took away his livelihood by confiscating the phone.

The phone was reportedly seized in connection with a 2021 breach of voting machines in Mesa County, Colorado, allegedly carried out by Tina Peters, the county clerk now facing state felony charges for the alleged tampering.
