The Independent reports:
One of Donald Trump’s fiercest supporters, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, went to a meeting at the White House with notes suggesting “martial law if necessary”.
The notes, captured by a photographer as Mr Lindell entered the Oval Office on Friday, come after Mr Lindell tweeted then deleted calls for the president to “impost martial law” in the seven battleground states that won the election for Joe Biden.
The page is curved and not fully visible, but the heading is titled something like “[illegible] taken immediately to save the [illegible] constitution.

It looks like the My Pillow guy was urging the president to use the “Insurrection Act now as a result of the attack” and then “martial law if necessary.” https://t.co/lttekVSJBu

It may seem ridiculous but Mike Lindell has been at the center of the insurrection effort that resulted in the storming of the capitol.
MyPillow funded the Stop The Steal tour & was the main sponsor for media outlets covering it. His presence at WH is not to be taken lightly
