DOJ investigates Mike Lindell for identity theft, computer damage

The CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, has been accused of identity theft and computer damage, and the Justice Department (DOJ) is investigating these claims.

As Lindell waited in a Minnesota drive-thru last week, an FBI agent grabbed his phone; the Trump supporter is contesting the action in court.

The DOJ is looking into claims that Lindell purposefully damaged a secured computer and committed identity theft.

On Wednesday, Lindell's legal team submitted documents as part of his lawsuit in Minnesota's US District Court.

According to the evidence, U.S. Magistrate Judge Tony Leung approved the warrant on September 7.

The magistrate approved the search and seizure warrant after determining that there was probable cause to believe Lindell may have broken the law.
